 Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement

The Miriam Webster Online Dictionary defines plagiarism as follows:

Steal and pass (ideas or other words) as his own ideas
Use (other production) without source constraint
Committing a literary journey
Introducing a new or original idea or product derived from an existing source

Academic journals consider plagiarism a serious crime. Academic journals are committed to the elimination of literary manuscripts from the process of review and publication. Revic Revues uses an iThenticate application to detect impersonation to examine each manuscript to see potential impersonations.

Spoofing is the first step in the process of reviewing the manuscript. The manuscripts that have an unacceptable level of similarity with other published works are immediately rejected. Please review the review process below.

Manuscripts must be the original work of the author (authors). Academic journals will follow the COPE guidelines in cases of suspected plagiarism.

Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism means copying someone else's text or ideas and passing the copied material as your own work. You must both separate and identify the copied text from your text and give credit to (i.e., cite the source) the source of the copied text to avoid accusations of plagiarism. Plagiarism is considered fraud and has potentially harsh consequences including loss of job, loss of reputation, and the assignation of reduced or failing degrees. AJPS Review is strictly against any unethical act of copying or plagiarism in any form. Plagiarism is said to have occurred when large portions of a manuscript have been copied from existing previously published resources. Every manuscript submitted for publication in AJPS Review will be checked for plagiarism using text-matching software.

If low plagiarism is detected, the corresponding author will be alerted and asked to either rewrite the text or quote the text exactly and to cite the original source. If at least 15% of the original submission is plagiarized during initial stages of review it will be rejected and not considered for publication in AJPS Review.

Repeated submission is a position in which the author presents the same manuscript or similar manuscripts to two different journals at the same time, both in academic journals and in any other publisher. This includes the submission of manuscripts derived from the same data so that there are no fundamental differences between the manuscripts. The duplicate submission also includes the submission of the same manuscript / manuscript in different languages ​​to different journals.

Manufacturing and forging data
It is immoral to fabricate, manipulate or falsify data in a manuscript. According to the COPE guidelines, Revues Revisions deals with suspected cases of fabrication and falsification.

Manipulation of Quotations
The manuscript should contain only the relevant citations. The inclusion of non-task bids is strongly discouraged. Similarly, self-citation is irrelevant to increasing the quote immoral.

Simultaneous Submission

Submitting a manuscript to multiple scientific journals at the same time is termed as simultaneous submission. At the time of manuscript submission, most journals obtain a declaration from the authors that the manuscript is original and is not being considered for publication by any other scientific journals. Declaring as such and then disregarding this process leads to submission to another journal where the chances of success are perceived to be better by the authors. This could lead to publication of the same manuscript by two different journals. As this type of misconduct occurs at the discretion of the author alone, the onus is on the author to submit to one journal and wait for a decision before submitting to another journal.

Submitting/presenting a paper for a scientific conference does not preclude authors from submitting the same paper for publication to a peer-reviewed journal.
