Publication Ethics and Malpractice

Proceedings of Engineering and Technology Innovation (PETI) is an international, multidiscipline, peer-reviewed, open access, scholarly journal, published quarterly for researchers, developers, technical managers, and educators in the field of engineering and technology innovation. PETI will do its best to abide by the Code of Conduct of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), and aims to adhere to its Best Practice Guidelines. The following statements describe the ethical behavior of all parties involved in the act of publishing an article for PETI, i.e.: the author, the peer reviewer, the editor, and the publisher.

Duties of Authors

Originality and Plagiarism
    Authors should warrant that their article is completely original and not a reproduction of previously published works or AI-generated work. If authors have used any pre-existing words or work, they must properly quote or cite them.

When authors use generative AI and AI-assisted technologies in writing the article, they should ensure that these technologies are used only to improve the language and readability of the work.

Multiple and Concurrent Publications
    Authors should not publish or submit manuscripts that describe the same research in more than one journal or publication, either in different languages. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently is against publishing ethics and is not acceptable.

Authorship of the Paper
    Authorship should be restricted to individuals who have a substantial contribution to the conception, analysis, design, implementation, or interpretation of the study. All those who have made significant contributions must be listed as co-authors.

Authors should not include AI or AI-assisted technologies as authors or co-authors in their manuscripts, nor should they cite AI as an author. Authorship carries with it certain responsibilities and tasks that are unique to human beings.

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest
   All authors must disclose any substantive or financial conflicts of interest in their manuscript that may potentially influence the results or interpretation. Additionally, all the sources of financial/substantive support for the study should be fully disclosed.

 Reporting standards
    The authors must provide an accurate and truthful account of the work conducted, along with an impartial discussion of its importance. They should represent the underlying data accurately in the manuscript which includes sufficient details and references to enable others to replicate the study.

Data Access and Retention
    The authors may be requested to provide the raw data regarding their study for editorial/peer review, and must be willing to allow public access to it if feasible, and must keep the data available for a reasonable period after publication.

Acknowledgment of Sources
    Authors should always provide proper acknowledgment of others’ work. They should cite publications that have affected the nature of the study.

Fundamental errors in published works
    If an author finds a significant error or inaccuracy in their published work, he/she must immediately inform the journal editorial office or editor, and collaborate with them to correct or retract the paper.

Duties of Reviewers

Contribution to editorial decision
    Proper peer review helps the Editor-in-Chief in making informed decisions about the manuscript. Additionally, it provides a platform for constructive editorial communications between the author and reviewers that may lead to an improvement in the quality of the paper.

Standards of Objectivity
    Reviews must be conducted objectively, without resorting to personal criticism. Reviewers should clearly express their comments by providing supporting arguments to back up their claims.

    Receiving a manuscript for review is confidential. it should not be shared or discussed with anyone else unless authorized by the Editor-in-Chief. Any privileged ideas or information obtained during the peer review process must be kept confidential and should not be used for any other purpose.

    If a chosen reviewer feels unqualified to assess the assigned manuscript or cannot provide a timely review, they should inform the Editor-in-Charge and decline participation in the review.

Acknowledgment of Sources
    Reviewers should identify pertinent published articles that the authors have not cited. Any statement previously reported elsewhere should include the relevant citation. Reviewers should also alert the Editor-in-Charge to any significant overlap or similarity between the manuscript under review and any other published work.

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest
    Reviewers should not evaluate manuscripts if they have conflicts of interest stemming from competitive, collaborative, or other associations with the authors, institutions, or companies relevant to the manuscripts.

Duties of Editors

Decision on the Publication of Articles
    The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for deciding which submitted articles should be published, guided by the journal's editorial policies and legal obligations regarding copyright and plagiarism. They may consult with other editors or reviewers to reach a final decision.

    The Editor-in-Chief and editorial staff should not reveal any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone except the authors, reviewers/potential reviewers, and editorial advisers.

Fair play
    Manuscripts should be assessed based solely on their intellectual worth, without any consideration given to the author's ethnicity, citizenship, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, gender, or any other personal characteristics.

    The Editor-in-Chief or authorized editorial staff should use appropriate software or tools to check the originality and similarity of all submitted manuscripts. If any manuscript is found to have plagiarized content from published or unpublished works by other authors, it will face plagiarism sanctions.

Disclosure and conflicts of interest
    Reviewers should refrain from evaluating manuscripts if they have conflicts of interest stemming from collaborative, competitive, or other relationships with the authors, institutions, or companies associated with the manuscripts.

Duties of Publishers

    A publisher has a responsibility to establish journal policies and ensure they are followed, particularly regarding research ethics, editorial independence, transparency, integrity, authorship, and peer review. The publisher should review these policies periodically, particularly in light of new recommendations from organizations such as the COPE, and ensure that journal content is published promptly.

Handling of unethical publishing behavior

    If an article is suspected of plagiarism, fraudulent publication, or academic misconduct, the publisher along with the Editor-in-Charge should take corrective action to investigate and address the issue. This may include clarifying or amending the article, issuing a correction or retraction, or taking further disciplinary action as necessary.

Access to journal content

    The publisher has a responsibility to ensure that scholarly research is permanently available and preserved, including through the use of digital archiving systems. They should also partner with organizations that specialize in maintaining digital records and certify that the research is accessible to the public.

    The publisher must respect the privacy of authors and peer reviewers.

Digital Preservation Policy

Digital preservation involves processes and actions to safeguard digital information, ensuring its backup and distribution for sustained accessibility over the long term. The journal's digital content is highly valuable, and steps are taken to ensure its ongoing accessibility and preservation. These preservation measures include:

Website archiving

   All the electronic content (website, manuscripts, etc.) is stored in three separate locations. One server hosts the content online, while identical copies are kept as backups on two other sources. Should one server fail, any of the backup sources can be activated to bring the website back online, typically within 12-48 hours.

Abstracting/Indexing services

   The Abstracting/Indexing databases of the journal contain essential information about the articles. These databases not only archive metadata but also store electronic versions of the articles. Therefore, scientific community members can access copies of the articles through these systems as an alternative to the journal's platform.


   Authors should archive the final version of their published papers in personal or institutional repositories immediately after publication.

If the journal stops publishing

    The journal is expected to continue publishing for the foreseeable future. In the unlikely event that circumstances force us to cease publication, the published articles will remain online and accessible to readers for at least 10 more years. In exceptional cases, such as discontinuation of the collection or catastrophic website failure, the content will be accessible through PKP PN to ensure the long-term preservation of these resources.
