Data fabrication and Datafalsification
Data fabrication and falsification means the researcher did not really carry out the study, but made up data or results and had recorded or reported the fabricated information.Data falsification means the researcher did the experiment, but manipulated, changed, or omitted data or results from the research findings.
Plagiarism is intentionally using someone else's ideas, or other original material as if they are one's own. Copying even one sentence from someone else's manuscript, or even one of your own that has previously been published, without proper citation is considered by journals of JPS Scientific Publications as plagiarism.
Simultaneous submission occurs when a manuscript is submitted to a journal when it is already under consideration by another journal.
Citation Manipulation is including excessive citations, in the submitted manuscript, that do not contribute to the scholarly content of the article and have been included solely for the purpose of increasing citations to a given author's work, or to articles published in a particular journal. This leads to misrepresenting the importance of the specific work and journal
in which it appears and is thus a form of scientific misconduct.
In the event that there are documented violations of any of the above mentioned policies in any journal, regardless of whether or not the violations occurred in a journal published by JPS Scientific Publications, the following sanctions will be applied:
