Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice

  • The Journal of Engineering Research is an electronic peer reviewed international journal committed to upholding the highest standards of publication ethics. In order to provide our readers with a journal of highest quality, we state the following principles of Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement. All articles not in accordance with these standards will be removed from the publication if malpractice is discovered at any time even after the publication. The Journal of Engineering Research is checking all papers in a single-blind peer review process; Submitted manuscripts for publication are single-blind peer-reviewed: reviewers are aware of the identity of the authors, but author(s) are unaware of the identity of the reviewers.
  • We also check for plagiarism and research fabrication (using PlagScan) as The Journal of Engineering Research reserves the right to use plagiarism detecting software to screen submitted papers at all times; falsification (manipulation of existing research data, tables, or images) and improper use of animals in research. In accordance with the code of conduct we will report any cases of suspected plagiarism or duplicate publishing.
  • 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 the work of the authors 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 for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, and the publisher. The Journal of Engineering Research is committed to the highest standards of publication ethics and takes all measures against any publication malpractices.
  • All parties involved in publishing - the authors, the journal editors, the peer reviewers and the publisher - agree with standards of ethical behavior.

Publishing controls

  • The scientific papers are published in the journal in either Arabic or English, and in both cases the research includes an abstract in English or Arabic, according to the research language.
  • The journal does not accept previously published research papers or papers submitted for review in other journals, and the moral and legal responsibility rests with the author in the event that he/she submits a research previously published in another magazine or a scientific conference at home or abroad.
  • Anyone who has published research in a scientific conference (mentioning the name of the conference) may republish it in the journal, provided that it would be subjected to rereviewing. The paper published in the conference must be placed in the list of references and referenced in the paper submitted for publication in the journal.
  • The research published in the journal does not necessarily express the opinion of its editorial committee, and the literary and scientific responsibility rests with the authors.
