NNN is committed to peer review integrity and practices the highest standards of ethical publishing across all NNN journals. We publish original research papers that has not been published nor under review elsewhere. NNN publication ethics encourages integrity in research and peer review process as outlined below and we prohibit any malpractices regarding publication. NNN uses Docloc tool to verify the originality of every submitted manuscript. NNN promotes new research and scientific applications in the field of Computer science & Engineering and allied fields. We provide high quality and flexible information solutions to researchers.
All manuscripts will be subject to a well established, fair, unbiased peer review and refereeing procedure, and are considered on the basis of their significance, novelty and usefulness to the Journals readership. The reviewing structure will always ensure the anonymity of the referees & it will be reviewed by 3 experts in the field. For more details , please visit “Review Process“ section.
Using another person’s ideas, language, graphs, pictures, results and experiments without giving credit to them. Without citing the source, copying even a single sentence from your own or another person’s research paper leaded to plagiarism. NNN uses Docloc tool to verify the originality of every submitted manuscript. The plagiarized submissions will be rejected and the authors will face sanctions. If there is a plagiarism issue found in the published article, it will be either corrected or retracted.
Redundant publications or Self plagiarism– It primarily refers to publishing the same material / experiments more than once. It refers to the situation that one study is split into several parts and submitted to two or more journals. Or the findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper cross-referencing, permission or justification. “Self-plagiarism” is considered a form of redundant publication. It concerns recycling or borrowing content from previous work without citation. This practice is widespread and might be unintentional. Articles based on content previously posted on a preprint, institutional repositories and thesis will not be considered as a redundant publications. The extended version of the conference article with substantial improvement with proper citations, permissions will be considered for possible publications. Submissions are accepted for review with the understanding that the same work has been neither submitted to, nor published in, another publication. Simultaneous submission to other publications will result in immediate rejection of the paper and face sanctions. NNN’s authors, readers, reviewers and editors encouraged to complain any suspicions of self-plagiarism by contacting the relevant editor or by emailing email@example.com
Making up data or results and recording or reporting them is fabrication of data. Falsification of data is manipulating research materials, omitting/deletion/suppression of conflicting data without justification and this would cause mistrust and disgrace to scientific community. The submissions or published articles that identified for falsification, fabrication, or misrepresentation of the results, including the manipulation of Images, may lead to actions and published articles may be retracted.
Note: Translations of articles without proper permission or notification and resubmission of previously published articles are considered duplications.
All persons who meet authorship criteria are listed as authors, and all authors certify that they have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for the content, including participation in the concept, design, analysis, writing, or revision of the manuscript.
Authors mentioned in the article should strictly be someone who has made a significant intellectual or scholarly contribution to the research described in the research output, are willing to be accountable for their contribution, and agree to be listed as an author. Any person who helped technically to the experiments, survey or manuscript preparation may be acknowledged with their approval. Third party submissions will not be accepted for review process. Researchers are encouraged to talk about authorship with all those involved in the research and it’s the responsibility of the author to get approval from co-authors that he/she will act on behalf of the co-authors. Including authors who have not contributed to the research in the manuscript and excluding authors who have contributed to the research is unacceptable author contribution.
Citing irrelevant articles that don’t contribute to content of manuscript is a kind of scientific misconduct. Editors, reviewers are not permitted to ask authors to include their own articles, or an Associate work, articles published in the journal or associated journal to references. Such kind of actions will lead to actions.
A conflict of interest occurs when an individual’s objectivity is potentially compromised by a desire for financial gain, prominence, professional advancement or a successful outcome. Authors are fully responsible to disclose any conflict of interest, perceived or potential conflict of interest that may bias their work, and acknowledge all financial support and any other personal connections. Even if there is no conflict of interest, the authors should state that clearly in the article. The corresponding author is responsible for co-authors declaring their conflict of interest. In addition to the conflicts of interest, authors are also required to declare funding statement.
Conflicts of interest include any circumstances where an author has a real, perceived or potential opportunity to prefer their own interests, or those of any other person or organization, to the interests of the University.
Authors must declare all potential interests in a ‘Conflicts of interest’ section, which should explain the details. Even if there is no conflict of interests, the authors should state that in the article. Corresponding author is responsible for coauthors declaring their conflict of Interests.
Authors / Editors / Reviewers must declare all potential interests in a ‘Conflicts of interest’ section, which should explain why the interest may be a conflict. If there are none, the authors should state “The author(s) declare(s) that there are no conflicts of interest regarding the publication of this paper.”
Editors/reviewers should consider situations such as being recent co-author, recent colleague, supervisor, personal relationship, and financial gainer are considered as conflicts.
If conflicts of interest are found in a published article, publish a corrigendum or reassess the review process or retraction might be necessary. Conflict of interest must be declared and it doesn’t stop a publication of work or some one’s involvement in the review process.
As an Open Access publisher, NNN doesn’t support publishing false statements that harm the reputation of individuals, groups, or organizations.
Any published article identified to include fraudulent results will be retracted, or expression of concern or an appropriate correction will be issued. We work with editors, reviewers and other appropriate institutions to investigate fraudulent research and research misconduct.
The Journal will issue a corrigendum to correct the errors of the authors. If the journal is responsible for the error, it will issue an erratum. If the article is seriously flawed that their findings or concluding remarks should not be relied upon, it may be retracted. All authors, author’s institutions, editors and others involved will be consulted by the publisher for the course of the action and all authors will be required to agree the action by journal.
