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 must ensure that their work is completely original and not a reproduction of previously published works or an AI-generated work. If authors have used any pre-existing work or words, they must appropriately cite or quote them.
When authors use generative AI and AI-assisted technologies in the writing process, they should ensure that these technologies are used only to improve the readability and language of the work.
Multiple and Concurrent Publications
In general, authors should not publish manuscripts that describe the same research in more than one journal or primary publication, either in different languages. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently is considered unethical publishing behavior and is not acceptable.
Authorship of the Paper
Authorship should be restricted to individuals who have made a substantial contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions must be acknowledged as co-authors. In cases where others have participated in specific substantive aspects of the research project, they should be recognized and listed as contributors.
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 should disclose in their manuscript any financial or substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.
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 manuscript for editorial 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
Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.
Fundamental errors in published works
If an author finds a significant error or inaccuracy in their published work, he/her 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
Peer review helps the Editor in Chief and the editorial board in making informed decisions to 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 in an objective manner, without resorting to personal criticism of the author. Reviewers should clearly express their comments by providing supporting arguments to back up their claims.
Received manuscripts for review are confidential. They should not be shared or discussed with anyone else unless authorized by the Editor in Chief. Any privileged information or ideas obtained during the peer review process must be kept confidential and should not be used for personal gain.
If a chosen reviewer feels unqualified to assess the assigned manuscript or cannot provide a timely review, they should inform the editor and decline to participate in the review process.
Acknowledgment of Sources
Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that had been previously reported elsewhere should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also call to the Editor in Chief/Editorial Board member's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.
Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest
Reviewers must not evaluate manuscripts in cases where they have conflicts of interest resulting from collaborative, competitive, or any other relationships or affiliations with the authors, companies, or institutions associated with the papers.
Duties of Editors
Decision on the Publication of Articles
The Editor in Chief of AITI is responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published. The Editor in Chief is guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and is subjected to legal requirements regarding copyright and plagiarism. The Editor in Chief may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this final decision.
The Editor in Chief and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher.
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 must check the originality and similarity of all the submitted manuscripts with adequate software or tools. Manuscripts that are found to have been plagiarized from a manuscript by other authors, whether published or unpublished, will incur plagiarism sanctions.
Disclosure and conflicts of interest
Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used by anyone who has a view of the manuscript (while handling it) in his or her own research without the express written consent of the author.
Duties of Publishers
A publisher has a responsibility to establish journal policies and ensure they are followed, particularly with regard to editorial independence, research ethics, authorship, transparency, integrity, 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 in a timely manner.
Handling of unethical publishing behavior
If an article is suspected of academic misconduct, fraudulent publication, or plagiarism, the publishers, in collaboration with the editors, 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 can be seen as the set of processes and activities that ensure information which now exists in digital formats is backed up and distributed to guarantee continued access for the long term. The digital content of the journal is extremely valuable and measures are in place to ensure both its current accessibility and long-term preservation. The preservation policy includes the following measures:
All of our electronic content (website, manuscripts, etc.) is stored in three different sources. Content on one server is online and accessible to the readers. The copy of the same content is kept as a backup on two other sources. In case of failure of one server, any one of the other sources can be made online and the website is expected to be accessible within less than 12-48 hours.
Our journal’s Abstracting/Indexing services store much essential information about the articles. Additionally, all of our journal’s Abstracting/Indexing services archive not only the metadata about the article, but the electronic versions of the articles, as well. Therefore, copies of the articles are available to the scientific community through their systems as an alternative to the journal's own.
Authors may archive the final published version of their articles in personal or institutional repositories immediately after publication.
If journals stop publishing
We intend and expect to continue to publish our journals for a very long time. If, due to some rare, unfortunate circumstances, we are forced to stop publishing the journals, the manuscripts published in the journal will be kept online and accessible to the readers for at least 10 more years. When required under specific conditions, such as discontinuation of the collection or catastrophic failure of the website, the content will be accessible through PKP PN to ensure that these resources are preserved in the long term.
- All advertisements should be approved by the publisher or the editor-in-chief.
- Advertisements are a separate section from the content. Editors should not shape the content to accommodate advertising.
- All advertisements are independent of editorial decisions. The Editorial Board does not endorse any product or service marked as an advertisement or promoted by a sponsor in the journal.
- Advertising is clearly distinguished from the editorial content.
- Editorial content is not compromised by commercial or financial interests, or by any specific arrangements with advertising clients or sponsors.
- Advertisers have no control or influence over the results of searches a user may conduct on the publisher's journal.
- All advertisements must be non-discriminatory in terms of sex, age, race, religion, marital status, or physical handicap, and comply with all applicable laws and regulations.
- All advertisements should identify the advertiser by trademark or signature.
- The publisher does not release personally identifiable data on the users of our websites.
- Advertisements should clearly identify the advertiser and the product or service being offered. Exaggerated or extravagantly worded copies will not be allowed.
- Once an advertisement has been deployed online, it will be withdrawn from the journal site at any time if the Editor(s)-in-Chief or Publisher requests its removal.
- The IJETI journal will not allow any treatment-specific or drug-specific campaign to be targeted to a specific article(s) or on any page where content relates to the product(s) being advertised.
