    Publication Ethics

    In line with the mission of the Islamic University of Madinah, the JESC aims to promote and circulate knowledge and support of its scientific publications. Within the framework of this mandate, the university press assumes an impartial, unbiased, and highly ethical viewpoint on the subject matter in its publications.

    Publishing Ethics for JESC Editors

    Editorial Responsibilities

    Editorial Responsibilities The JESC is served by the international editorial board and international editorial advisory board. Editors are responsible for the timely publication of the manuscripts as per the publication schedule and are published in the journal. This includes measures to assess the quality of the scientific material that is considered for the journal. Editors must be fair-minded and sensible in the execution of their duties, without any kind of bias or discrimination. Editors should state clearly to authors and reviewers on everything that is expected of them.


    The editor and the editorial team may not pass on information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the author, reviewer, potential reviewer, any other editorial consultant.

    Peer review

    It is the journal's policy to conduct at least two blind peer reviews of each submission of the articles it receives. Based on the originality, research rigor, quality of scientific methodology, article presentations, and suitability of the contents of the articles for the JESC, without the intervention of the peer review process, the editors must decide which articles should be published. An explanation of the peer review processes is described via the JESC web portal. Editors are responsible to justify any deviations from the peer review processes as articulated. Editors can further invite alternate review in case it is deemed necessary to uphold the quality of the review process. Editors should treat submissions impartially, fairly, and appropriately and treat all manuscripts confidentially so that the manuscripts can only be passed on to others for peer review. JESC Editors maintain a system to ensure that the identity of peer reviewers, authors, are protected and conflict of interests are not compromised. In case of misconduct, including plagiarism, or if doubtful authorships are suspected, editors are guided by JESC's international editorial board via publication ethics guidelines and committee decisions. Editors, via the JESC web portal, provides guidelines on JESC publication policies and keep all members informed of the new guidelines, announcements, and future developments.

    Conflicts of interest

    Editors maintain a system to manage any conflicts of interest, of the authors, reviewers, and editors.

    Publishing Ethics for JESC authors

    Plagiarism statement for Ethical Guidelines

    It is the responsibility of the author(s) to ensure that the manuscript submitted is original and does not contain plagiarized material. Plagiarism involves passing on the work of someone else other than the author(s), that is, reusing text, results, or creative expression without expressly acknowledging or referring to the original author or publication. Authors should be aware that the self-plagiarism, defined as the re-use of substantial portions of the author's work or published work without attribution to the source (see the JESC website). Examples of plagiarism are verbatim copying of published articles; text copy of published articles, such as figures, tables, and equations. The author must obtain appropriate permission and properly cite or cite non-original material to the sources. In this context, "citing" is defined as reusing other works with appropriate credit. An appropriate quotation is given as to whether the material was written by another author or by the author previously. Publication ethics prohibit duplicate publication as well. Plagiarism, which skews ideas, words, computer code, or other creative expressions such as the author's own, is an obvious violation of the ethical principles. Plagiarism includes a variety of forms, including literal copying, quasi-literal copying, or deliberately paraphrasing parts of another author's article. Copy items from another author's article, such as well-known equations or figures, or intentionally copy or paraphrase sentences without citing the source. Self-plagiarism is disallowed in JESC. The journal defines self-plagiarism as the literal or literal re- use of substantial parts of a copyrighted work without citing the source. Other types of unethical and data manipulation include tempering data in ways that deceive others and that violate both core values and professional standards. This involves misrepresenting research - using selective or fraudulent data to support a hypothesis or claim. Duplicate publication or submission of research results and failure to review the article or submit it to the JESC is fundamentally unethical.

    Responsibilities of the Author

    Authors should declare that all work in their submitted piece is original and they should appropriately cite the content of the manuscript from other sources to avoid plagiarism. Authors should ensure that their contribution is free from any defamatory material and recognize the copyrights or other intellectual property rights or patents or any other third-party rights. The list of authors included in the manuscript should exactly list who executed the research and who penned the article, and the order of the author should be cooperatively determined by all authors to avoid any future conflicts. The JESC provides monetary rewards to the corresponding author only upon publication of the manuscript, as articulated in the JESC web portal. All authors are notified of their article's submission to the JESC via web portal and authors should ensure that their submitted manuscript is not reviewed or accepted for publication elsewhere. If the similarity content of the submitted manuscript, exceeds a threshold limit of overlap as described by the JESC web portal, the manuscript will be declined for publication. Authors must provide consent to reproduce content from third-party sources, such as texts, images, equations, illustrations, etc. If the article under consideration, received a research fund, the author(s) must acknowledge such source of funding as a part of research ethics. The responsibility falls on the author(s).

    Disclosure and conflicts of interest

    The authors should indicate potential conflicts of interest for the submitted manuscript for publication consideration. Unpublished material that has been published in a manuscript may not be used as the author's research without the unambiguous written consent of the author with justification expressing why such repetition is necessary. The JESC maintains a similarity policy as described in the journal web. The authors should provide a detailed report of a collaborative work that is completed. The original data should be complete in the document. The manuscript should contain sufficient features and references for others to reproduce the work. Deceitful or knowingly incorporating erroneous statements characterize unethical conduct. Authors are urged to provide the raw data in conjunction with an editorial review process of the article and should be prepared to provide public access to this data in case it may be necessary. Authors should notify the Editor in Chief of any possible errors in their published work in methods, material, results, and conclusions, to publish an erratum or addendum, or revocation, as the case may be. Authors are can appeal editorial decisions via the JESC web portal and email contact.

    Publishing Ethics for JESC Reviewers

    Responsibilities of Reviewers

    The task of reviewers is to contribute to editorial decisions. The peer review supports the editor in editorial decisions and can also help the author(s) to improve the article through editorial communication with the author. The JESC selects reviewers who have the proper knowledge in the field and follows best practices to avoid choosing fraudulent peer reviewers. The JESC Editorial Board initially evaluates manuscripts on their intellectual content, regardless of race, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity, religious belief, citizenship, or philosophy of the authors before they are sent to the peer-review process. JESC uses an electronic distribution system for all communication. Reviewers should help improve the quality of a submitted article by reviewing the manuscript promptly with care, consideration, feedback, and objectivity. An evaluation form is provided to the reviewers to identify the strength and weaknesses of a manuscript under review. The reviewer's evaluation is categorized as (1) recommend to accept the paper as it is or (2) recommend to reject the paper or (3) suggest major revisions and restructuring of the manuscript for 2nd round review or (4) suggest minor revisions. Reviewers should inform the JESC editorial board of any published or submitted content that is similar to the material to be reviewed, or suspected of plagiarism. Reviewers should identify potential conflicts of interest associated with a particular article or author. Reviewers should respect the confidentiality of any information or material provided during the review process.
