Allegations of Misconduct

KJVS is very sensitive to research misconduct and uses all means available to prevent publishing miscounted research. Though there is no standard definition of research misconduct, the Council of Editors defines research misconduct broadly in three categories of action and conducts. KJVS uses this definition of the misconduct in its dealing with the issue and follows strictly the COPE follow chart in dealing with research misconduct.  In addition, for each component of the research misconduct, KJVS has many assurance policies as follows

-      Mistreatment of research subjects

-      Falsification and Fabrication of data

-      Piracy and Plagiarism
