Basic Research Journals (BRJ) adhere strictly to certain ethical standards in order to guarantee excellence in scientific publications and to ensure that people receive credit for their works. Basic Research Journals (BRJ) is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and abides by its Code of Conduct and aims to adhere to its Best Practice Guidelines.
All journals published by Basic Research Journals (BRJ) are committed to publishing only original material i.e., material that has neither been published elsewhere, nor is it under consideration for publication by another publisher, it is of grate significant if authors avoid the following ethical violations.
Data falsification means the researcher did not experiment or really carry out a thorough study on the research but rather made up data and results without a complete information, thereby omitting the original results from the research findings.
Plagiarism is intentionally using someone else’s idea or other original material as if they are your own. Copying one's sentence from someone else’s manuscript or even one of your own that has previously been published, without proper citation is considered by Basic Research Journals (BRJ) as plagiarism.
Submitted manuscript should be the original work of the author(s).
Simultaneous submission occurs when a manuscript is submitted to different journals for publication. or is been considered for publication in a journal and is been submitted to another journal for publication.
Duplicate publication occurs when an already published article is not clearly referenced in a submitted article. for this reason, author(s) should use only citations that are relevant to their manuscripts. Addition of references that are not relevant to the work is strongly discouraged.
Citation Manipulation is including excessive citations in the submitted manuscript that do not contribute to the scholarly content of the article and have been included solely for the purpose of increasing citations to a given author’s work or to articles published in a particular journal. This leads to misrepresenting the importance of the specific work and journal in which it appears and is thus a form of scientific misconduct.
