Publication Ethics

The Indus Journal of Animal and Plant Sciences (IJAPS) is committed to publishing high-quality research that is ethically sound. The journal's publication ethics policy is based on the principles of honesty, transparency, and accountability.

The following are some of the key ethical principles that IJAPS upholds:

  • Originality: Authors should submit only original research that has not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere.
  • Data Plagiarism: Authors should not plagiarize the work of others. This includes copying text, figures, or tables from other sources without proper attribution.
  • Research Misconduct: Authors should not engage in any form of research misconduct, such as fabrication, falsification, or plagiarism.
  • Data Access and Reproducibility: Authors should make their data available to other researchers upon request. They should also ensure that their research is reproducible.
  • Confidentiality: Authors should respect the confidentiality of any information that is shared with them during the peer review process.
  • Disclosure of Conflicts of Interest: Authors should disclose any potential conflicts of interest that could bias their research.

IJAPS takes all allegations of ethical misconduct seriously. If an allegation is made against an author, the journal will investigate the matter and take appropriate action.

The journal's publication ethics policy is available on the IJAPS website. Authors are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the policy before submitting their work to the journal.

This ensures that all articles published in IJAPS are preserved and accessible to the public for future research.
