MANUSCRIPT ASSESSMENT

  • After initial assessment the submittted manuscripts are gone through a rigorous double blind peer review process in order to maintain the excellent academic standards. The identities of the reviewers and authors will be anonymous for each other. The submissions not conforming to the standards due to ethical issues are sent to advisory board for advice and future action.

PLAGIARISM

  • JSEIS publishes only original research i.e. a research that has never been published at any local or international forum. Moreover, it has not been submitted for review elsewhere. JSEIS crosschecks the manuscripts for any plagiarized material in order to keep the integriy of the published contents upto mark. If a manuscript is found plagiarized then the palgiarism penalty/penalties will be employed in full zest and the concerned academic or research centre will be informed duly.

DUPLICATE SUBMISSIONS / CITATION MANIPULATION

  • JSEIS recommends that author should not submit a manuscript if it has already been submitted at some other forum. In case a research is based on some previous research then authors must cite their previous work with a possible indication of sufficient research contribution in the submitted manuscript. Moreover, there should not be citation manipulation in order to elevate the number of citations based on requests by some authors. Hence, an appropriate action will be taken against such cases as mentioned in the penalty section.

FALSIFICATION OF RESULTS

  • Results or data gathered related to experimentation must be the true reflection of the original experimentation. In case of fabrication or falsfication of the results the pnalties related to data fabrication or falsification will be imposed.

AUTHOR CONTRIBUTION

  • There must be significant contribution by all authors who will be involved in a research. In case if other researchers will claim their contribution in the same research then appropriate action will be taken and penalty related to misleading information will be imposed.

CONFLICT OF INTEREST / COMPETING INTERESTS

  • Any conflict of interest also called as competing interest must be reported within due course of time. The conflict or conflicts reported at any later stage will result in rejection of the manuscript. The conflicts may be related to funding, affiliations, ideology, acamdemic, personal or intellectual property. Hence, its responsibility of author or authors to mention all conflicts well before time.
