Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement for IIA International Research Conference ANVESHAN

The IIA International Research Conference ANVESHAN 2024 is committed to upholding the highest standards of ethical conduct in the publication of conference proceedings. Authors, reviewers, editors, and conference organizers are expected to adhere to the following ethical principles:

  1. Originality and Plagiarism: Authors must ensure that their submissions are original works and properly cite and attribute the work of others. Plagiarism in any form is strictly prohibited. All papers will be checked by ANVESHAN with the officially acceptable software for a similarity index up to 12 %.
  2. Authorship: All individuals who have made significant contributions to the research should be listed as authors. Authorship needs to be limited to only those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution or interpretation of the work of the paper. Any individual or organization that has contributed to the research should be acknowledged appropriately.
  3. Conflict of Interest: Authors are required to disclose any potential conflicts of interest that could influence the research or its interpretation. Conflicts of interest may include financial interests, affiliations, or personal relationships that could bias the work.
  4. Data Integrity: Authors must ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted. Authors are solely responsible for the accuracy and integrity of the data presented in their submissions. Fabrication, falsification, or manipulation of data is unacceptable.
  5. Ethical Treatment of Subjects: Research involving human subjects or animals must comply with ethical guidelines and regulations. Authors should obtain informed consent from human subjects and adhere to the principles of humane treatment for animal subjects.
  6. Review Process: Reviewers and editors are expected to conduct the peer review process with integrity, objectivity, and confidentiality. Reviewers should provide constructive feedback to authors and disclose any potential conflicts of interest. All submitted papers are subject to double-blind review process by at least two international reviewers that are experts in the area of the paper. The factors that are taken into account in review are relevance, significance, originality, readability and language. The possible decisions include acceptance or rejection.
    Rejected articles will not be re-reviewed. Articles may be rejected without review if they are obviously not suitable for publication. A reviewer should also call to the publisher's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge. Reviews will be conducted objectively, through clearly-expressed views with supporting arguments. There will be no inappropriate or personal criticism of the author, and evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.
    The staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate.
    The paper acceptance is constrained by such legal requirements as shall then be in force regarding libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism.
  7. Confidentiality: All manuscripts received for review are treated as confidential documents and are reviewed by anonymous reviewers and editors who must refrain from using unpublished materials for their own research or benefit.
  8. Editorial Independence: Reviewers and editors should make decisions based on the quality and validity of the research and not be influenced by personal biases or external pressures.
  9. Corrections and Retractions: Authors should promptly retract or correct any errors or inaccuracies discovered in their published work. Editors have the responsibility to investigate allegations of misconduct and take appropriate actions, including issuing corrections or retractions.
  10. Compliance with Guidelines: Authors should adhere to the formatting and submission guidelines provided by the conference organizers. Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in rejection or withdrawal of the submission. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.
  11. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one publication concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.
  12. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.

By submitting their work to ANVESHAN 2024, authors acknowledge their commitment to upholding these ethical principles and contributing to the integrity and credibility of scholarly research.
