Ethics in publishing
For information on Ethics in publishing and Ethical guidelines for journal publication see http://joese.mans.edu.eg
Policy and ethics
The work described in your article must have been carried out in accordance with the code of ethics of the World Medical Association (Declaration of Helsinki) for experiments involving humans http://www.wma.net/e/policy/b3.htm; EC Directive 86/609/EEC for animal experiments http://ec.europa.eu/environment/chemicals/lab_animals/legislation_en.htm; Uniform Requirements for manuscript submitted to biomedical journals http://www.icmje.org. This must be stated at an appropriate point in the article.
SCIRP is committed to maintaining high standards through a rigorous peer-review together with strict ethical policies. Any infringements of professional ethical codes, such as plagiarism, fraudulent use of data, bogus claims of authorship, should be taken very seriously by the editors with zero tolerance.
An Initial Plagiarism Check is carried out for every manuscript submitted to JOESE. The check starts with a Google search which is built into SCIRP’s Paper Submission and Manuscript Tracking System. SCIRP is a member of CrossCheck and has added all its papers to the CrossCheck database. In this way, also other publishers can compare their manuscripts with SCIRP’s papers. CrossCheck is used through the web-based iThenticate system by uploading a document and running a similarity check against the CrossCheck database and the Internet. The check provides a ”Similarity Index” which is the percentage of the manuscript matching other sources. Therefore, manuscripts with a high ”Similarity Index” are examined if the other matching sources have been properly cited. http://turnitin.com/ar/login.
