Plagiarism and Data Fabrication

Plagiarism is one of the most serious threat to quality publication and is not acceptable in any way in APJCS. Plagiarism may be intentional or unintentional. It may include, but not limited, to the following forms: showing the work or idea of someone as if their own, using parts of other works without proper attribution to the original source, presenting research data derived from an extant source or from others without permission.

The authors must cite the works, words, ideas, or figures used in their manuscript. All sources used must be properly attributed. The reuse of text that is copied from another source must be appropriately quoted. The citations and quotations should be written following the prescribed standards.

Other unethical behaviors like fabrication of data and manipulation of visual objects are strictly not allowed in APJCS. The authors must show an correct account of their research, especially as regards data generation, presentation, analysis, and interpretation. Any falsified statements represent unethical behaviors and are in any way not acceptable in APJCS.
