Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement

  1. Measures to identify and prevent misconduct

    International Journal of Arabic-English Studies (IJAES) conforms to and emphasizes research publication integrity. The editors are working persistently to prevent plagiarism and other forms of fraud and misconduct in academic publishing. They consider it as an integral part of IJAES’s ethical responsibilities. As editors, they strive to meet the challenges of ethical publication standards and develop strategies for coping with them. They expect the journal's peer reviewers to act in the same manner.

    IJAES is also committed to ethical standards in its own editorial policy, where editors consistently try to ensure fair, unbiased, and transparent peer review processes and editorial decisions. The editors assume responsibility for everything they publish and they have procedures and policies in place to ensure the quality of the material IJAES publishes and maintain the integrity of the published record. Further, IJAES is committed to following the international standards for editors and authors as defined by COPE Committee on Publication Ethics and their updates as stated in the following link

  2. Guidelines for retracting or correcting articles

    IJAES pledges to correct and publish as soon as possible any genuine errors in published work pointed out by readers, authors, or editors, which do not render the work invalid. The online version of the paper will be corrected with a date of correction and a link to the printed erratum. If the error renders the work or substantial parts of it invalid, the paper will be retracted with an explanation as to the reason for retraction.

  3. Issues pertinent to publication

    IJAES’s publishers and editors will publish corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies when needed. Editors take responsibility for everything they publish and ensure fair and unbiased decisions independent of commercial consideration and ensure a fair and appropriate peer review process. Editors adopt editorial policies that encourage maximum transparency and complete, honest reporting as well as follow up that peer reviewers and authors are aware of what is expected of them

  4. Measures of dealing with allegations of research misconduct

    IJAES publishers and editors will pursue suspected or alleged research and publication misconduct so that any detected cases of misconduct, whether on the part of authors, reviewers or editors, will be vigorously pursued. The editors have appropriate policies in place for handling editorial conflicts of interest.
