Ethics of Publication

Publication Ethics

For Researchers:

1) Submission of research to the journal implies the researcher's agreement to adhere to the publishing ethics established by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). These guidelines can be explored through the following two links:

2) Researchers must sign a declaration confirming their ownership of the research, its originality, and that it has not been previously published or submitted elsewhere for publication.

3) If researchers become aware of any issues with their research, whether before or after submission, they must promptly notify the editor-in-chief and work to rectify these issues.

4) Researchers are expected to be responsive and address any recommended amendments throughout the submission, review, and publication process, as needed.

5) Researchers should avoid addressing topics that promote sectarianism, ethnicity, denominationalism, or partisanship.

6) Published research in the journal reflects the opinions of the researchers and not necessarily those of the journal itself.

7) The journal will not publish research that does not conform to its established standards, and if it discovers non-compliance after publication, it reserves the right to remove the research from its website and associated databases.

8) In line with the Code of Conduct, the journal will report any suspected cases of plagiarism or duplicate publication and may employ plagiarism detection software to check submitted papers at any time.


For Editors:

1) Editors are responsible for selecting suitable research papers for publication, making decisions on copyright and plagiarism issues, and consulting with expert reviewers and the journal's advisory board members as necessary.

2) Editors are committed to:

  • Maintaining neutrality and objectivity when evaluating submitted research, regardless of the researcher's race, gender, beliefs, or nationality.
  • Ensuring confidentiality by not disclosing any information related to submitted research except to authorized individuals designated by the journal's administrative body.
  • Upholding integrity and fairness, particularly in selecting and maintaining the anonymity of reviewers and researchers.
  • Assisting in the research and investigation processes to uphold the scientific integrity of submitted research, making appropriate corrections, or rejecting articles when necessary. Editors also address complaints as needed.


For Reviewers:

1) Each research paper is reviewed by two reviewers in the relevant field, with a third reviewer consulted if one of the initial reviewers rejects the research. The third reviewer's decision is decisive. All reviews are conducted through a double-blind process to maintain anonymity between the researchers and reviewers.

2) Reviewers are typically affiliated with different universities and hold high academic titles, such as professor or associate professor.

3) Reviewers are committed to scientific integrity, objectivity, and impartiality in evaluating research.

4) Reviewers adhere to set timeframes and promptly notify the editor-in-chief if they encounter any issues.

5) Reviewers maintain complete confidentiality regarding the research they review.

6) Reviewers substantiate their reports with scientific evidence and provide detailed comments on the research.


For the Journal's Administrative Body:

1) Following the highest standards of integrity and transparency.

2) Adopting the policies of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) as a reference in the ethics of scientific research.

3) Researchers are given adequate opportunity to make required amendments and respond to reviewers' questions.

4) Researchers are informed of the permission to publish their research and are provided with specific publication details.

5) The organization of research papers in journal issues adheres to technical standards
