Publication Ethics

We expects all authors to adhere to ethical requirements in the preparation of their manuscript.

Plagiarism a serious offense. JELTIM is committed to eliminating manuscripts with possible cases of plagiarism from its review and publication process. We use the iThenticate plagiarism detection application to check each manuscript for possible cases of plagiarism.

Plagiarism check is the first step in the manuscript review process. Manuscripts that are found to contain unacceptable level of similarity with other published works are immediately rejected.

Submitted manuscripts should be the original works of the author(s). JELTIM will follow COPE guideline in suspected cases of plagiarism.

An author is not allowed to submit the same or similar manuscripts to two different journals at the same time either within Academic Journals or any other publisher. This includes the submission of manuscripts derived from the same data in such a manner that there are no substantial differences in the manuscripts. Duplicate submission also includes the submission of the same/similar manuscript in different languages to different journals.

It is unethical to fabricate, manipulate or falsify data in a manuscript.  JELTIM is by COPE guidelines in dealing with suspected cases of data fabrication and falsification.

A manuscript should contain only relevant citations. Inclusion of citations that are not relevant to the work is strongly discouraged. Similarly, irrelevant self-citation to increase one’s citation is unethical.

Peer Review

JELTIM employs a double-blind peer review system. All submitted manuscripts undergo a peer review process before publication.
