Below is a brief statement summarising the main points for ethical procedure


All authors must declare they have read and agreed to the content of the submitted manuscript and completed all the relevant journal documentation. Manuscripts may be rejected by the editorial office if it is felt that the work was not carried out within an ethical framework.


Competing interests

Authors must declare all potential competing interests involving people or organisations that might reasonably be perceived as relevant. Ethical approval for any type of research project needs to be obtained by a relevant body and a statement to this effect shown in the paper submission. This will be vetted at the review stage.


Editors and Reviewers responsibilities

Editors will blind referee all manuscripts as will reviewers, to the guidelines explicitly highlighted by COPE.

Plagiarism

Plagiarism in any form constitutes a serious violation of the most basic principles of scholarship and cannot be tolerated. Examples of plagiarism include:

Word-for-word copying of portions of another's writing without enclosing the copied passage in quotation marks and acknowledging the source in the appropriate scholarly convention. The referencing code is not important but the referencing source is.

The use of a particularly unique term or concept that one has come across in reading without acknowledging the author or source is constituted as plagiarism. This is a difficult area to stipulate as any contribution to knowledge may infringe on other peoples' work.

The paraphrasing or abbreviated restatement of someone else's ideas without acknowledging that another person's text has been the basis for the paraphrasing is also an example of plagiarism. It goes without saying, that paraphrasing does take place as long as it’s realistic and not the basis of the published work.

False citation: material should not be attributed to a source from which it has not been obtained. Every endeavour for correctness has to be secured, notwithstanding errors can be made.


Unacknowledged multiple submission of a paper for several purposes without prior approval from the parties involved. Notwithstanding that papers with similar empirical materials are submitted to differing journals.


The IJMC is a member of COPE and as such adheres to all the principles of that association
