Publication Ethics and Malpractice

The Arab Journal for Scientific Publishing adopts the policies of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) as an ethical reference in scientific research.
The magazine also relies on a careful arbitration and review process by a jury of specialists and competencies, with strict ethical standards.
Journal editors use PlagScan to compare content submitted to our journals to what has been published to check for ethical malpractices
such as plagiarism and data falsification.

Below is a selection of the most important scientific publishing ethics:

• As a peer-reviewed scientific journal, the Arab Journal for Scientific Publishing follows a rigorous review process, It provides important guidance for reviewers and referees to ensure that original publications are of high scientific merit.
• Copyright belongs to the Arab Journal for Scientific Publishing and authors must declare that the paper is original, has not been submitted elsewhere, and does not contain copyrighted elements.
• Authors must disclose any information in the manuscript that could be considered a potential conflict of interest before submitting it to the journal.
• For other researchers to reconstruct the study, the data and methods used must be described in sufficient detail in the research paper so that other researchers can take full advantage of the results.
• The research must not contain any published information. If you wish to post and include a previously published graphic or image, please seek appropriate permission from the copyright holder.
• Plagiarism involves copying text, ideas, images, or data from other sources, including your publications, without citing the source or references. Therefore, the reuse of copied content must be enclosed in quotation marks with the source cited.

Criteria for Research Papers: Authors must provide an accurate description of the work performed and an objective discussion of its significance.
The research paper should also contain sufficient details and references to allow others to expand on it.
Data access and retention: The Editorial Board may ask authors to submit raw data from a paper for review.

Originality and plagiarism: Authors must ensure that the research they write is completely original and if they use the research or writings of others, they must cite or cite it appropriately. Duplicate or concurrent publications: Authors should generally not publish papers describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or research article.

• Researchers participate in designing and planning research projects, extracting or obtaining research data, or analyzing or interpreting research data.
• Researchers participate in drafting large portions of scientific papers prepared for publication or in critically reviewing them.
• Final approval of the issued version.
• You agree to be responsible for the completeness and accuracy of all aspects of the research work and its results

Copyright may not be transferred in any of the following cases:
• Lack of intellectual or scientific contribution of value to the research or its results.
