Journal of Computational and Applied Research in Mechanical Engineering (JCARME) is committed to upholding the highest standards of publication ethics and takes all possible measures against any publication malpractices.
It is necessary to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer and the publisher.
The editor of JCARME is responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published. The editor (co-editor) may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.
Any manuscript received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discuss with others except as authorized by the editor (co-editor) of JCARME.
Contribution to Editorial Decision
Peer review assists the editor in making editorial decisions. This will be done through computer software which allows us to measure the originality of the authors work.
Standards and Objectivity
Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.
Originality and Plagiarism
The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of the others this must be cited appropriately.
Acknowledgement of the Source
Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Any statement that an observation or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation.
Fundamental Error in Published Works
When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
It must be noted that we follow Committee on Publication Ethic (COPE) rules and we have asked for its membership.
