Publication Ethics And Publication Malpractice Statement

Journal of Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Intelligence (JAIAI) Publication decision is based on a codified process. Journal policies are a Part of this process. Content compatibility of each submitted paper with the scope of journal is one of the journal policies. This journal follows the guidelines of the ‘Committee on Publication Ethics’ (COPE) (https://publicationethics.org). Submitted papers must be free of allegations such as libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism. Reviewer comments and editor’s decision are another Part of decision process. The results of these two parts determine the final decision for each paper. JAIAI has been authorized to select valuable submitted papers for publication.

     

    Confidentiality

    JAIAI has commitment to protect all information of submitted articles from untrusted ones. In this regard, JAIAI’s editorial boards such as reviewers and advisers are only able to access the information.

    Identification Of And Dealing With Allegations of Research Misconduct

     

    Publisher and editor of the journal take reasonable steps to identify and prevent the publication of papers where research misconduct has occurred, including plagiarism, citation manipulation, and data falsification/Fabrication, among others. In no case shall the journal or its editor encourage such misconduct, or knowingly allow such misconduct to take place. In the event that the journal’s publisher or editor is made aware of any allegation of research misconduct relating to a published article in the journal –the publisher or editor shall follow COPE’S guidelines  (https://publicationethics.org/guidance/Guidelines and https://publicationethics.org/guidance/Flowcharts), in dealing with allegations.

    Revenue Sources/Advertising/Direct Marketing

    JAIAI is a journal launched under Shimur publications and JAIAI does not receive funding from any institution/Government. Hence, the operation of the journal is solely financed by the handling fees received from authors. The handling fees are required to meet maintenance of the journal. Being an open access journal, JAIAI does not receive payment for subscription, as the articles are freely accessible over the internet. Authors of articles are required to pay a fair handling fee for processing their articles. However, there are no submission charges. Authors are required to make payment only after their manuscript has been accepted for publication. JAIAI accepts no advertisements in its official website.

     

    Publishing Schedule

     JAIAI publishes four issues per year, with occasional special issues coming in addition. All the contents of the journal are available forever on aaiml’s exclusive website.

    Policy On Prior Publication

     We recognise that clarity on Journal policies on prior publishing and how these might work with any institutional requirements for authors to deposit their e-theses is important to both authors and institutions.

    To avoid any doubt, Journal of Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Intelligence does not count publication of an academic thesis as prior publication. You can find further information in the summary below.

    Summary

    When work has not already been published or is not being considered for publication elsewhere in other journals, Journal of Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Intelligence welcomes submissions from authors and will take them into consideration for publication. The following prior uses of a work are not considered prior publications by Journal of Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Intelligence:

    • Publication In The Form Of An Abstract
    • Publication As An Academic Thesis
    • Publication As An Electronic Preprint


    Editor Responsibilities

    Accountability

    An editor of a peer-reviewed journal is liable for everything published in the journal as well as for choosing which articles submitted to the journal should be published. The editorial board's policies as well as legal requirements for libel, copyright infringement, and plagiarism may serve as the editor's guides in reaching these decisions. The editor may seek advice from other editors or reviewers when deciding what to publish. The editor should uphold the integrity of the academic record, refrain from sacrificing moral and intellectual standards, and always be prepared to publish retractions, clarifications, and corrections when appropriate.

    Fairness

    The editor should assess manuscripts for intellectual content regardless of the author's race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy (s). The editor will not reveal any information about a manuscript under consideration to anyone other than the author(s), reviewers and potential reviewers, and, in some cases, editorial board members.

    Confidentiality

    The editor and any editorial staff must not divulge any information about a submitted article to anybody other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, \sand the publisher, as appropriate.

    Disclosure, Conflicts Of Interest, And Other Issues

    When deciding whether to retract, express concerns about, or make modifications to papers that have been published in Journal of Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Intelligence, the editor will follow COPE's Guidelines (https://publicationethics.org/retraction-guidelinesfor Retracting Articles as a guidance.

    Unpublished information disclosed in a submitted manuscript may not be used by the editor for independent research projects without the author's express written approval. Peer review's privileged knowledge or ideas must be kept secret and not used for one's own benefit.

    The editor is committed to ensuring that commercial revenue from reprints or other sources has no effect on editorial choices.

    The editor should work to make sure the peer review process is impartial and suitable. Editors should abstain from reviewing and evaluating manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from cooperative or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, businesses, or (possibly) institutions associated with the papers. Instead, they should ask a co-editor, associate editor, or other member of the editorial board to do so. All contributors should be required to disclose any pertinent competing interests, and editors should publish revisions if any are discovered after the article has been published. If additional action is required, it should be performed, such as publishing a retraction or expressing concern.

    Involvement And Cooperation In Investigation Reviewer Responsibilities

    By issuing corrections and retractions when necessary and looking into suspicions of research and publication misconduct, editors should protect the integrity of the written record. Editors need to investigate reviewer and editorial malpractice. When ethical concerns about a submitted manuscript or published work are raised, an editor should respond in a reasonable manner.


    Reviewer Responsibilities

    Contribution To Editorial Decisions

    Peer review helps the editor make decisions about what to publish.

    Promptness

    Anyone who has been asked to serve as a referee but feels unqualified to do so or realises that doing so in a timely manner will be impossible should notify the editor right away so that substitute reviewers can be contacted.

    Confidentiality

    All manuscripts that are sent to you for review need to be handled with confidentiality. Other than with the editor's permission, they cannot be displayed to or discussed with others.

    Standards Of Objectivity

    Reviews ought to be carried out impartially. It is unacceptable to criticise the author personally. Referees should clearly state their opinions and provide relevant justifications.

     Acknowledgement of Sources

    Reviewers should point out pertinent published works that the authors have not cited. Any claim that a certain observation, deduction, or argument has already been recorded should be supported by the appropriate citation. Any significant overlap or resemblance between the manuscript under consideration and any other published data that the reviewer is aware of should be brought to the editor's notice.

    Disclosure And Conflict of Interest

    Peer review's privileged knowledge or ideas must be kept secret and not used for one's own benefit. Reviewers should avoid taking into account manuscripts for which they have competing, cooperative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, businesses, or organizations associated with the submission.

    Author Responsibilities

    Reporting Standards

    Writers who present the findings of original research should give a truthful assessment of the work done and an unbiased analysis of its relevance. The article should appropriately reflect the underlying data. A paper should have enough information and citations to let someone else duplicate the work. False or deliberately inaccurate statements are inappropriate and represent unethical behaviour.

    Originality And Plagiarism

    The authors should make sure that their writing is wholly unique and that, if they do utilise someone else's words or work, they have properly cited or quoted them.

    Multiple, Redundant Or Concurrent Publication

    Generally speaking, an author shouldn't submit articles detailing essentially the same study to more than one journal or primary publication. The simultaneous submission of the same paper to multiple journals is unacceptable and is considered unethical publishing practice.

    Acknowledgement Of Sources

    Always give due credit to other people's contributions. Moreover, publications that helped define the character of the presented study should be cited by the authors.

    Authorship Of A Manuscript

    Only individuals who significantly contributed to the conception, design, implementation, or interpretation of the reported study should be given the privilege of authorship. Co-authors should be named for everyone who contributed significantly. Those people who contributed to the study effort in meaningful ways should be acknowledged in the acknowledgements section.

    The corresponding author should make sure that the author list of the manuscript includes all appropriate co-authors (as defined above) and excludes any inappropriate co-authors. They should also make sure that all co-authors have seen the final draught of the paper, approved it, and agreed to its submission for publication.

    Hazards And Human Or Animal Subjects

    The authors must make it explicit in the manuscript whether the work uses any chemicals, techniques, or tools that have any special risks inherent in their usage.

    Disclosure And Conflicts Of Interest

    Any financial or other significant conflict of interest that could be taken to have an impact on the findings or how they are interpreted in the publication should be disclosed by all authors in the manuscript. Disclosure of all funding sources for the project is required.

    Fundamental Errors In Published Works

    It is the duty of the author to contact the journal's editor or publisher as soon as he or she becomes aware of a material error or inaccuracy in his or her own published work and to work with them to either retract the paper or publish an appropriate erratum.

    Publisher’s Confirmation

    In instances of claimed or established scientific misconduct, fraudulent publication, or plagiarism, the publisher will take all necessary steps in close coordination with the editors to make things clear and rectify the offending article. In the worst scenarios, the impacted work may be completely retracted. This includes the quick release of an erratum.


    Post publication corrections

    Correction and Retraction Policy

    Some articles may need to be corrected after they are published for a variety of reasons. They can be anything from minor inaccuracies to more major concerns with ethics and copyright. The many types of error are handled in the following manner by Advances in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in compliance with the rules set forth by the Committee on Publication Ethics.

     

    In order to reduce demands for post-publication edits:

     

    • When the files are delivered to typesetting, editors should make sure that the author(s) have had a chance to approve their final draught and metadata. It should be made clear that there won't be any more editing allowed.
    • Before sending the final manuscript and metadata to typesetting, editors should thoroughly review them to ensure that they are satisfied with the content.
    • The author or editor will have reviewed all articles' PDF proofs before they are published. This is your last chance to check for minor editorial concerns like typos and layout problems. There is no chance for extensive content modification here.

     

    If you think an article needs to be corrected, kindly get in touch with the Journal/Editorial Manager. We maintain the right to determine what counts as a minor or major issue and whether an item needs to be amended or corrected.

    Amendment

    If a very minor content or metadata error is discovered very quickly (often within 48 hours) after publishing AND the publication has not yet been submitted for indexing, Journal of Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Intelligence may directly edit the article (both in PDF and HTML).

    Only glaring and minor errors are permitted for in-line changes. A proper correction must be published for any changes to the scientific substance or other significant metadata concerns (such a change in authorship). If an in-line change is made, the publication may also include a note to inform readers of the change.

    If a publication has already been sent to indexing services, in-line modifications will not be allowed to prevent the circulation of multiple versions of the same publication.

    Correction Article

    A published article becomes immediately accessible to the general audience. To help with this distribution, we will also send the publishing details and files to several indexes shortly after publication. All corrections must be made public as a separate publication that is linked to the original after this indexing process has started (often within a day or two of publication). This makes sure that the academic record's transparency and integrity are upheld.

    A correction article will be published in cases when an error impacts the material provided, the arguments put forth, or the conclusions of an article (but not the validity of the findings), or contains inaccurate information regarding the article's metadata (author list, title, editor, etc.). To formally correct the scientific record and guarantee that metadata mistakes are correctly noted, correction articles are utilised. Corrected articles will be submitted to indexes as normal and will display as an article in the journal's table of contents. To inform readers, a note with a link to the correction will be included in the original article. The editors and/or authors of Journal of Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Intelligence will create the note's language, and both parties will need to approve it (s). The editor(s) and Journal of Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Intelligence will decide if the error needs to be fixed by a correction article in consultation with the author.

    For insignificant problems, such as small formatting errors or typos, we won't publish Correction articles after indexing because, when the original is unchanged, such a notice just draws attention to a mistake that readers may overlook or easily overlook.

     

    Retraction

    A published paper can be expunged from the scientific record using retractions. Retractions are used in accordance with the recommendations of the Council on Publication Ethics ( https://publicationethics.org/retraction-guidelines ) when:

     

    • The findings in the article are unreliable, according to editors, either because of malfeasance (such as fabricating data) or clerical error (e.g. miscalculation or experimental error)
    • The results have already been reported elsewhere without the required cross-referencing, approval, or justification (i.e., instances of redundant or duplicate publication).
    • Article publication constitutes plagiarism
    • Unethical  research is reported in the article.

     

    Retraction articles will be written, approved by the editors, and posted in the same manner as correction articles. The original story will still be available, but a note at the top will inform readers that it has been retracted.

    Retraction & Withdrawal

    Rarely, articles will need to be completely or partially deleted from the journal website. Usually, this is done for legal justifications, such as copyright violations or moral dilemmas. The original article's metadata and abstract will still be present, but the remaining text will be replaced with a note that links to the retraction article.
