Allegations of Misconduct

FUJBE Press makes all reasonable efforts to investigate publication misconduct, including fabrication, falsification, plagiarism, and Redundant Publication.

•  Fabrication is making up data or results and recording or reporting them.
•  Falsification is manipulating research materials, equipment, or processes, or changing or omitting data or results such that the research is not accurately represented in the research record.
•  Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person's ideas, processes, results, or words without giving appropriate credit.
•  Redundant Publication: The submission has not been published nor is it under consideration for publication elsewhere. Authors also shall not submit their manuscripts to other outlets while under review at FUJBE Press journals. Violation will result in the rejection of their submissions (if still under review) or retraction of their published paper, the incidence will be reported to their institutions and they will be charged with the cost of reviewing.

FUJBE Press reserves the right to contact the institutions of the authors to investigate possible publication misconduct if the editors find conclusive evidence of misconduct before or after the publication. The AIMS Press is a member of CrossCheck, and we will screen the submitted content for originality.
