Publications Ethics Statement

Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement

Standards of ethical behaviour are expected from: Authors, Editors, Reviewers and the Publisher.



Four fundamental ethical issues have been defined and procedures for responding to malpractice have been outlined below:

  1. Data fabrication (the making up of research findings) and data falsification (manipulating research data with intention of giving a false impression).
  2. Duplicate submission (submitting the same paper to two journals), redundant publication (one study is split into several parts and submitted to two or more journals) and over publication (republishing the same research outcome in another journal).
  3. Plagiarism (present the work of other author(s) as own without proper citation or acknowledgment).
  4. Citation manipulation (submitted manuscripts that are found to include citations whose primary purpose is to increase the number of citations to a given author’s work or to articles published in a particular journal).


Sanctions for malpractice

The ESRI tolerate no ethical malpractice. Any submitted paper suspected ethical malpractice can never be published. Author’s employer will be informed about the ethical malpractice. The author also will not be able to proceed to publication in any journal or book published by the ESRI for 3 years. The author convicted of malpractice gets lifetime prohibition to serve on the Editorial Board of any journal published by the ESRI.



Authors are required to present only the results of their own work and their own thoughts. Any results or thoughts from other works have to be properly cited. Besides the properly citation of authors are required to obtain a permission form copyright holder when using figure, table or more than 150 words form other work. The authors' own results should be predominated in the original research paper.


Conflict of interest

All authors are requested to disclose any actual or potential conflict of interest that could inappropriately influence, or be perceived to influence, their work.



All persons who have a significant role in the preparation of the manuscript (e.g. laboratory analysis, statistical evaluation of data, writing, etc.) should be included in the list of authors of the manuscript. Authors are required to state in all its affiliated employers whose technical equipment or finance has been used in preparation process of the manuscript. Persons carrying out only ancillary works should by mentioned in the acknowledgments at the end of the paper.



Editors must evaluate manuscripts exclusively on the basis of their scientific value and meeting the requirements given by the guide for authors. An editor must not use unpublished information in his own research without the express written consent of the author. Editors should take reasonable responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper.



Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. Privileged information obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for reviewer profit. Reviews should be conducted objectively and observations should be formulated clearly with supporting arguments. Any chosen reviewer who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that review within 30 days will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse himself from the review process.


Conflict of interest

Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the manuscript.


Peer review

Peer review plays an important role in ensuring the quality of the submitted manuscripts. Peer reviewers play a central and critical part in the peer-review process. The ESRI has a group of experts as reviewers all over the world.



The ESRI creates favourable conditions for fulfilment given publication ethics by authors, editors and reviewers and strictly controlled its compliance.

The ESRI also helps to propagate the scientific results strictly along with ethical standard.
