Ethical standards for publication exist to ensure high-quality scientific publications, public trust in scientific findings, and that people receive credit for their ideas.
All journals published by Asian Publication Corporation are committed to publishing only original material, i.e., material that has neither been published elsewhere, nor is under review elsewhere. Asian Publication Corporation uses plagiarism detection software to check plagiarism in submitted manuscripts. Manuscripts that are found to have been plagiarized from a manuscript by other authors, whether published or unpublished will be rejected from publication in any of the Asian Publication Corporation Journals.
Manuscripts that are found to have been published elsewhere, or to be under review elsewhere, will incur duplicate submission. If authors have used their own previously published work, or work that is currently under review, as the basis for a submitted manuscript, they are required to cite the previous work and indicate how their submitted manuscript offers novel contributions beyond those of the previous work.
Submitted manuscripts that are found to include citations whose primary purpose is to increase the number of citations to a given author’s work, or to articles published in a particular journal will be rejected from publication in any of the Asian Publication Corporation Journals.
Submitted manuscripts that are found to have either fabricated or falsified experimental results, including the manipulation of images will be rejected from publication in any of the Asian Publication Corporation Journals.
