Publication Ethics

IJGC-RI is committed to upholding standards of ethical behaviour at all stages of the publication process. As such, we respect the guidelines composed by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) as best practices. 

The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works. Plagiarism in all its forms (including self-plagiarism) constitutes unethical behaviour and is unacceptable. All of forms plagiarism is strictly Author responsibility. 

Authors should ensure that writing is free from bias and free of stereotyping, based on race, sex, culture, religion, social and political environment, jobs or other kinds of humanity. 

Authors should obtain permission to reproduce any content (text and images) from third-party sources. Authors must ensure their paper does not:

  • Contain any libellous matter
  • Infringe any copyright or other intellectual property rights
  • Infringe any other rights of any third party

The listing of authors should accurately reflect who carried out the paper or research. Where there are multiple authors, the order of authorship should be jointly determined by all of the co-authors.

Submitted manuscripts must not be under consideration or accepted for publication with another publisher.
