ethics and policies of IJSMET
International Journal of Scientific Methods in Engineering and Technology (IJSMET) is an International refereed, Multidisciplinary, Open Accessjournal having e-ISSN: XXXX-XXXX, published by the Global Scientific and Engineering Publications (GSEP) to promote High Quality Scientific Research Methods in Engineering and Technology.
The Ethics and Policies of IJSMET are made time to time to ensurethe High Quality Scientific Publications in Engineering & Technology, Public Trust in Scientific Research Findings, Innovationsand Authors/People Receive Credit for their ideas.
Ethics : Breaking the Publishing Ethics Rules can badly damage reputation as aresearcher, Academician, Contributors and even as a Publisher.It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher. The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of work of the author and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior. International Journal of Scientific Methods in Engineering and Technology (IJSMET) strictly adoptedthe following publication Ethics, Best Practice Guidelineson Ethical Behaviour, Code of Conduct of :
1. Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE: https://publicationethics.org/)
2. World Association of Medical Editors (WAME: http://www.wame.org/)
3. International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE: http://www.icmje.org/)
4.Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT:http://www.consort-statement.org/)
5. Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement (PEMS)should adhere to.
If any misconduct found in Ethical Behaviour related to the submitted Manuscript/Article or in Published Manuscript/Article in IJSMET even after some years, the Editor(s)may need to seek clarification in this regard with the Author(s) and request themto supply a letter from the relevant institutional Ethics Committee or Board that approved the researchor individual.The Editors will followCORE’s Guidelines for Retracting Articles when considering retracting, issuing expressionsof concern about, and issuing corrections pertaining to articles that have been publishedor COPEFlow Chartswhen dealing such a suspected misconduct.Editor can also seek for Advicesfrom expertsto take appropriate steps incase of this type of Allegations of misconduct occurs.
Authorship of the Article: Authorship should be limited to those who have made a Substantial Contribution to the Study Conception and Design, Data Acquisition, Analysis, Execution, interpretationof the Reported Study andDrafting or revising the Article/Manuscriptfor intellectual contentup to Approval of the final version. The order of authorship should be ‘a joint decision of the coauthors. Individuals who are involved in a study but don’t satisfy the journal’s criteria for authorship, should be listed as ‘Contributors’ or ‘Acknowledged Individuals’. Examples include: assisting the research by providing advice, providing research space, departmental oversight, and obtaining financial support.The corresponding author is responsible for ensuring that the descriptions are accurate and agreed by all authors.Authors are expected to consider carefully the list and order of authorsbeforesubmitting their manuscript and provide the definitive list of authors at the time of the original submissionto the IJSMET Journal. Any addition, deletion or rearrangement of author names in the authorship list should be made onlybeforethe manuscript has been acceptedby the IJSMET. Only in exceptional circumstances, the Editor, IJSMETconsider the addition, deletion or rearrangement of authorsafterthe manuscript has been acceptedupon request, Publication of the Manuscript will be suspendedIf the manuscript has already been published in an online issueby taking the letter of Agreefrom Authors
Originality and Plagiarism:The Plagiarism takes different forms, from literal copying to paraphrasing some else’s work and can include:Reproducing a work word for word, in whole or in part,Research Materials, Processes, Tables,Equipment, Data, someone else’s ideaswithout permission and acknowledgment of the original sourceand an author’s own work in a paper, and resubmitting it for publication as an entirely new.The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words then it should beappropriately cited or quoted.The IJSMET journaluses Crossref Similarity Check/ iThinticate or Turnitin softwareTools to detect the Plagiarism.
Data Access and Retention:IJSMET journalexpect that all Authors will comply with their funder/institute requirements for Data Storage, and Recommend that, as a minimum, authors keep their original data for 8years. Authors may be asked to provide the original raw data in connection with an Article submitted to IJSMET for Editorial Review if necessary for proper evaluation of the manuscript before publication. If the original Data cannot be produced, IJSMET Editorial Team may decide to reject the article, or revoke its acceptance. Original Data must also be available for review by the journal after publication if concerns are raised. If the original data cannot be produced, IJSMET Editorial Teammay decide to retract the article.
Multiple, Redundant or Concurrent Publication:The submission of the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently is also considered to be unethical practice.An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication.Research Manuscripts/Articlethat describeswork already published elsewhere will not be consideredby the IJSMET. At submission, Authors should declare any previous submissions or publications that might be regarded as overlapping with the submitted manuscript.If redundant publication is attempted or occurs, IJSMET Editorial action will be taken, including probable rejection or retraction of the Manuscript/Article.
Acknowledgement of Sources:It enhances your credibility as a writer/Author. By carefully and accurately citing/Acknowledgingyour external sources in the text and by documenting them at the end of your Manuscript/Articleyou show your readers that you are serious about your subject, your research, and the argument which you are making in your paper. You demonstrate that you have studiedyour subject in sufficient depth, and by reading credible and authoritative sources.IJSMET suggest Proper Acknowledgment/Citationof the workof others must always be given and it helps you in avoiding Plagiarism.If the Acknowledge the Sources is not found in Manuscript, IJSMET Editorial action will be taken, including probable rejection or retraction of the Manuscript/Article.
Disclosure and Conflicts of interest: All Author(s) shoulddiscloseinformation about any potential financial and non-financial conflicts of interest in a concise paragraph in the Acknowledgement Section of a Manuscript. If none, then state, ''The author(s) have no conflicts of interest relevant to this Article".All submissionsto IJSMETmust include disclosure of all relationships that could be viewed as presenting a potential conflict of interest.IJSMET Journal Editor(s) and Reviewer(s) have No Conflict of Interest in publication Process.
Fundamental Errors in Published Works: When an Author(s)discovers one or more significant errors or inaccuracies that change the overall results and conclusions of the Manuscript/Article, then theentire Manuscript/Articleshould be retracted,it is the author's obligation to promptly notify theIJSMETjournal Editor or Publisher and Cooperate with the Editor to Retract or Correct the Manuscript/Article.TheIJSMETjournal will request an explanation from the Author(s) as to how the errors or inaccuracies occurred, and if not satisfied with the responsegiven by the Author(s)then Editormayask the Employers of the Author(s)or some other appropriate body to investigate, and particularly to consider the possibility of fraudulent behaviour. TheIJSMETjournal will make all reasonable attempts to ensure that such an investigation is carried out with due diligence.
Reporting Standards: Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the Manuscript/Article. A Manuscript/Articleshould contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.
Hazards and Human or Animal Subjects: f the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that hasany unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify these in the manuscript. If the work involves the use of animal or human subjects, the author should ensure that the manuscript contains a statement that all procedures were performed in compliance with relevant laws and institutional guidelines and that the appropriate institutional committee(s) has approved them. Authors should include a statement in the manuscript that informed consent was obtained for experimentation with humansubjects. The privacy rights of human subjects must always be observed.
Use of patient images or case details: Studies on patients or volunteers require ethics committee approval and informed consent, which should be documented in the Manuscript/Article.Where there is an unavoidable risk of breach of privacy -e.g., in a clinical photograph or in case details the patient's written consent, or that of the next of kin, to publication must be obtained. IJSMET Editorial Teamwill ask you to send a signed consent form before publication.

Article Sharing Policy:
Sharing and Promoting your Article form an important part of Research, in terms of fostering the exchange of scientific information in your field and allowing your paper to contribute to wider scientific progress. In addition, bringing your Research and accomplishments to the attention of a broader audience also makes you more visible in your field. This helps you to get more citations, enabling you to cultivate a stronger reputation, promote your research and move forward in your career.IJSMET Journalsupports the STM Article Sharing Principles to enable research collaboration. Collaboration has always been essential to further research progress. Author(s) may choose different sharing options for example:presentingyour research in forms such as a presentation, or poster at conferences,useofyour article for your own classroom teaching and internal training at your institution, sharing Article for grant funding purposes, sharingArticle with your colleagues (and other individuals) in private communications such as email, postingyourpreprinton a preprint server, On my personal blog or websiteand postingyour accepted author manuscript immediately to an institutional repository and makethis publicly available. All types of Article sharing should be non-commercial.All Authors are recommended to use Mendeleyfor your Article Sharing.
Article Withdrawal Policy:
Only used for Articles in Press which represent early versions of articles and sometimes contain errors, or may have been accidentally submitted twice. Occasionally, but less frequently, the articles may represent infringements of professional ethical codes, such as multiple submission, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data or the like. Articles in Press (articles that have been accepted for publication but which have not been formally published and will not yet have the complete volume/issue/page information) that include errors, or are discovered to be accidental duplicates of other published article(s), or are determined to violate our journal publishing ethics guidelines in the view of the editors (such as multiple submission, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data or the like), may be “Withdrawn” from IJSMET Journal.So Author(s) can request Article Withdrawal within two days from date of submission without stating any reason.
Patient Consent Policy:
Studies on patients or volunteers require ethics committee approval and informed consent, which should be documented in the Manuscript/Article.Where there is an unavoidable risk of breach of privacy -e.g., in a clinical photograph or in case details the patient's written consent, or that of the next of kin, to publication must be obtained. IJSMET Editorial Teamwill ask you to send a signed consent form before publication.Appropriate consents, permissions and releases must be obtained where authors wish to include case details or other personal information or images of patients and any other individuals in an GSEPpublications and its Journal IJSMETin order to comply with all applicable laws and regulations concerning the privacy and/or security of personal information, including, but not limited to, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPAA") and other U.S. federal and state laws relating to privacy and security of personally identifiable information, the General Data Protection Regulation(GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 and member state implementing legislation, Canada's Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, India's Information Technology Act andrelated Privacy Rules, (together "Data Protection and Privacy Laws").
It is the responsibility of the author to ensure that:
Each individual, or the individual's legal guardian orother person with legal authority to act on the individual's behalf who appears in any video, recording,photograph, image, illustration or case report (or in any other identifiable form) is made aware in advanceof the fact that such photographs are being taken or such video, recording, photograph, image, illustrationor report is being made, and of all the purposes for which they might be used, including disclosure toGSEPand IJSMET or its licensees in any work or product. That individual, legal guardian orperson with legal authority must give his/her explicit written consent. If such consent is made subject toany conditions (for example, adopting measures to prevent personal identification of the person concerned),Written consents must be retained by theauthor and copies of the consents or evidence that such consents have been obtained must be provided toGSEP and its Journal IJSMETon request.
The form of written consent complies with eachrequirement of all applicable Data Protection and Privacy Laws.Particular care should be taken with obtaining consent where children are concerned (in particular where achild has special needs or learning disabilities), where an individual's head or face appears, or wherereference is made to an individual's name or other personal details.
In the case of a child, if parents or guardians disagree on the use of the images of that child, then consentshould be deemed not to have been given and those images should not be used. It is also important toensure that only images of children in suitable dress are used to reduce the risk of images being usedinappropriately
Even if consent has been obtained, care must be taken to ensure that the portrayal and captioning of theindividual concerned are respectful and could not be seen as denigrating that individual.
Special Considerations :
Patients' and research subjects' names, initials, hospital or social security numbers, dates of birth or otherpersonal or identifying information should not be used.
Images of patients or research subjects should not be used unless the information is essential for scientificpurposes and explicit permission has been given as part of the consent. Even where consent has beengiven, identifying details should be omitted if they are not essential.
If identifying characteristics are altered to protect anonymity, authors should provide assurances that suchalterations do not distort scientific meaning.
Non-Identifiable Images :
Formal consents are not required for the use of entirely anonymised images from which the individualcannot be identified-for example, xrays, ultrasound images, pathology slides or laparoscopic images, providedthat these do not contain any identifying marks and are not accompanied by text that mightidentify the individual concerned.
If consent has not been obtained, it is generally not sufficient to anonymise a photograph simply byusingeye bars or blurring the face of the individual concerned.
Permissions Policy :
As a general rule, permission should be sought from the rights holder to reproduce any substantial part of a copyrighted work. This includes any text, illustrations, charts, tables, photographs, or other material from previously published sources. To obtainpermission to re-use contentpublished by IJSMET journal write a email.The author bears the responsibility for checking whether material submitted is subject to copyright or ownership rights, e.g. figures, tables, photographs, illustrations, trade literature and data. The author will need to obtain permission to reproduce any such items, and include these permissions with their final submission. Where use is so restricted, the Editor/Editorial office and Publisher must be informed with the final submission of the material. Please add any necessary acknowledgments to the typescript, preferably in the form of an Acknowledgments section at the end of the Article. Credit the source and copyright of photographs, figures, illustrations etc. in the accompanying captions.
Research Data Policy :
IJSMET journal expect that all Authors will comply with their funder/institute requirements for Data Storage, and Recommend that, as a minimum, authors keep their original data for 8 years. Authors may be asked to provide the original raw data in connection with an Article submitted to IJSMET for Editorial Review if necessary for proper evaluation of the manuscript before publication. If the original Data cannot be produced, IJSMET Editorial Team may decide to reject the article, or revoke its acceptance. Original Data must also be available for review by the journal after publication if concerns are raised. If the original data cannot be produced, IJSMET Editorial Team may decide to retract the article.Contributors need to follow the below principles related to the Research Data.
Research data should be made available free of charge to all researchers wherever possible and with minimal reuse restrictions.
Researchers should remain in controlof how and when their research data is accessed and used, and should be recognized and valued for the investments they make in creating their research data and making it available.
Expectations and practices around research data vary between disciplines and discipline-specific requirements need to be taken into account.
Enabling effective reuse of research data is a shared aim and all stakeholders should work together to pursue this collectively, to find efficiencies and avoid duplication of effort.
Platforms, publications, tools and curation services can enhance research data by improving their discoverability, use, reuse, and citation.
Where others add value and/or incur significant cost in enhancing research data to enable its reuse, these contributions need to be recognized and valued.
