The publication of an article in this conference is an essential model for our academic values we preserve at the ISTE. We encourage the best standards of publication ethics and take all possible measures against publication malpractices. Multiple, redundant or concurrent publication act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer and the publisher.
Duties of authors
- Reporting standards
Authors of manuscripts should present an original, accurate account of the work performed, as well as an objective discussion of its effects.
- Data Access and Retention
Authors may be asked to provide the data connection with a paper for the purpose of editorial review and should be ready to provide public access to such data, if practicable, and should in any event be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable amount of time after publication of paper.
- Originality and Plagiarism
The authors should be ensuring of the work done by them is original, and if the authors have used the work of others, then such work should be provided proper citation/references. Articles found to have plagiarized material will subjected to withdrawn/rejected from publication consideration. If plagiarism is found after an article is published, the publisher will contact the author of article for justifications to the allegations. In cases of proven allegations or non-response/non-adequate response, the offending paper will be retracted and a statement from the publisher will be inserted instead of the article file in journal archives. The citation to such article won’t be counted valid afterwards.
- Multiple, redundant or concurrent publication
Submitting the same work to multiple conferences/journals concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and it is unacceptable. Manuscripts must only be peer reviewed by a one conference/journal at a time. We would consider articles that have been published earlier, with verification of the fact that they have undergone noticeable revision or enhancement. In such cases, at least 85% of the article must consist of new work.
- Acknowledgment of Sources
The acknowledgment of the work done by others must always be given in a proper citation/referencing format (auto-linked). Authors should cite the publication work which has influence over their research work. The content without such references would also be counted under plagiarized criteria.
- Authorship of the Paper
Authorship of the article should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the construction of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Apart from the co-authors, if there are others who participated in such work, they should be acknowledged and should be listed as contributors. Before article is subjected to publication, all co-authors should have seen and approved the final version of the paper and agreed for its publication.
- Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest
All authors should mention in their manuscript any conflict of interest that might have affected the results or interpretation of the manuscript. A financial support, if made should also be disclosed in the work.
