Plagiarism & Fabrication

Plagiarism is stealing others ideas, text or results and incorporating them into one's own manuscript. The plagiarized manuscript that is presented with large copy pasted data is inappropriate and would not be considered for publication in IJEHSR. If any article under process in IJESHR is identified having plagiarism will lead to the explanation from authors. The plagiarized articles will be retracted temporarily from publication. The authors will be given a fair chance to explain and justify their actions. In case of unsatisfactory response, the article will be permanently retracted. The notice of such retraction will be published online immediately and in the next issue of the printed version of IJEHSR.

Scientific misconduct includes data fabrication; data falsification, including deceptive manipulation of images; and plagiarism. When scientific misconduct is suspected, or concerns are raised about the integrity of work described in submitted or published papers, the editor initiates appropriate procedures according to the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) guidelines. The procedure involves investigation at the authors. If then scientific misconduct is proved through the investigation, the retraction process is followed.  Expressions of retractions would prominently be labeled in all its forms (abstract, full text, PDF).  Retracted articles would remain in the public domain. The validity of previous work by the author of a fraudulent paper cannot be assumed.
