Last Edition
Journal information

Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement define ethical standards in the journal Advanced Engineering Letters. It is intended to publish original scientific papers, without violating any rights (author’s, publishing, scientific, state, human, etc.). The Advanced Engineering Letters publication ethics encourages integrity in research and peer review process and prohibits any malpractices regarding publication. For all broader interpretations of ethical rights than those listed below, the Editorial Board of the journal will apply internationally accepted ethical principles in the area of Publishing Ethics by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). We fully adhere to its Core Practices that apply to all involved in publishing scholarly literature: editors and journal teams, publishers, and institutions; also and Guidelines intended to advise editors and publishers on expected publication ethics practices.

The journal Advanced Engineering Letters is dedicated to following best practices on ethical matters, errors, and retractions. The prevention of publication malpractice is one of the important responsibilities of the Editorial Board. Any kind of unethical behavior is not acceptable, and journal Advanced Engineering Letters does not tolerate plagiarism in any form. Authors submitting articles to the journal affirm that manuscript contents are original. Furthermore, they warrant that their article has neither been published elsewhere in any language fully or partly nor is it under review for publication anywhere.

Duplicate Submission
The manuscripts published in identical form in other places, will not be published in the journal Advanced Engineering Letters. In case the manuscript satisfies the software’s control on plagiarism, and subsequently, it turns out that it has already been published in another journal, it will be retracted from publication in the journal Advanced Engineering Letters by the Retraction policy of the journal.

Citation Manipulation
Submitted manuscripts that are found to include citations whose primary purpose is to increase the number of citations to a given author’s work, or to articles published in a particular journal, will incur citation manipulation sanctions.

Data Fabrication and Falsification
Submitted manuscripts that are found to be expressed substances in them (originality of the method, research results, conclusions, tables, figures, etc.) arbitrarily listed or falsified, will be treated as a falsification. In accordance with the Retraction Policy of the journal Advanced Engineering Letters Editorial Board, these manuscripts will be discarded.

Improper Author Contribution or Attribution
All listed authors must have made a significant scientific contribution to the research in the manuscript and approved all its claims. It is important to list everyone who made a significant scientific contribution, including students and laboratory technicians.

Redundant Publications
Redundant publications involve the inappropriate division of study outcomes into several articles.

Fair Play
All manuscripts will be reviewed based on intellectual content without regard for age, gender, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, country of origin, or political philosophy of the authors.

All manuscripts submitted for peer-review are kept strictly confidential. 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, as appropriate. At no time will Editors or reviewers utilize submitted materials without the consent of the authors.

Fundamental Errors in Published Works
When a significant error or inaccuracy has been discovered in a published work (with or without the author notifying it), the journal Editors will cooperate with the author to retract or correct the paper accordingly. If a correction is deemed appropriate, the Editors reserve the right to correct the published material and include a dated erratum.

In case of non-compliance with the prescribed policy of the journal Editorial Board predicted the following sanctions:

  • Refusal publishing manuscripts.
  • Prohibition of publication of works for 2 years for authors who have grossly violated the ethics of publication.
  • Prohibiting authors to participate in the work of the journal (reviewers, Editorial Board, etc.) for 2 years.

The Editorial Board of the journal may apply additional sanctions for severe ethical violations.
