Ethical research and publication practices are essential for honest scholarly and scientific research. Most journals today are keenly aware of this
I submitted a paper to JSS one month ago and it got rejected. The editor suggested revision and re-submission. However, the reviewer questions were too difficult to answer, so I revised my paper and submitted it to PCA. I got a reply from the Chief Editor today saying that this is a case of duplicate submission. I am very confused.

Dear Dr. Eddy,
I want to know if a paper is published in Chinese, can the same paper be published in an English journal? Would this be called duplicate publication? What’s the view globally?
Authors are sometimes so keen on publishing in high impact factor journals that they indulge in unacceptable practices, such as unethical withdrawal or concurrent submission. This case study follows one such case and finds out what consequences such actions can have for the author.
