Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement

ISCDBU general statement lays ground to develop and assure good practices and ethics in scientific publishing. It also aims to deal,in a practical way,with issues that arise in and by the publication of the proceedings of the conference,concerning intellectual honesty to prevent misconduct.

– All authors must own their original work,which has not been published previously somewhere else – research and analysis within the paper must reflect the author’s own work: fraudulent or knowingly fallacious declarations are not accepted and constitute unethical behavior;
– Significant contributions of co-authors and co-researchers must be properly listed,whereas the corresponding author should ensure all agree with the final version and submission for application;
– The framework of a prior and existing research/work must be guaranteed,ensuring that the work/words of others are appropriately quoted or cited: plagiarism in any form is unaccepted;
– Not be submitted to more than one society,institute or journal for deliberation,to prevent redundant concurrent peer review and unethical publishing behavior;
– Procedures or equipment that may cause unusual hazards inherent in their use must be clarified: Human or animal subjects must have their privacy rights observed and human experimentation (institutional or private) must have informed consent,according to ethical standards;
– All works received must be treated as confidential papers,not to be shown or discussed with others: the review process should be objective and clear,not leaving room to personal views or criticism;
– Reasonably responsive measures can be taken regarding ethical issues or claims made.
