Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement
Advances In Artificial Intelligence And Machine Learning’s (Aaiml) 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. COPE’s Guidelines Also Check In This Part. 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. AAIML Has Been Authorized To Select Valuable Submitted Papers For Publication.
AAIML has commitment to protect all information of submitted
articles from untrusted ones. In this regard, AAIML’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 in dealing with allegations.
Revenue Sources/Advertising/Direct Marketing
To avoid any doubt, Advances in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning does not count publication of an academic thesis as prior publication. You can find further information in the summary below.
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.
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.
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 Advances in Artificial
Intelligence and Machine Learning, the editor will follow COPE's Guidelines for
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
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.
Contribution To Editorial Decisions
Peer review helps the editor make decisions about what to
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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:
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.
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, Advances in Artificial Intelligence and
Machine Learning 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.
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 Advances in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning will
create the note's language, and both parties will need to approve it (s). The
editor(s) and Advances in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning 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.
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 (derived from
http://publicationethics.org/files/retraction%20guidelines 0.pdf) when:
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 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.
