What is duplicate submission? Can a paper be published without ethical approval? Is it ethical to use data from a previous paper? This section provides guidance on publication ethics: authors can learn about the code of ethics in research to avoid accidental plagiarism and the importance of obtaining ethical approval. Developing good ethical research practices can help authors publish their work ethically, and avoid rejection and retraction due to misconduct.

I was invited by a journal to publish an essay in about 2 pages for the journal’s initial issue. As it was an open journal, I declared that I would not pay any money, and sent a miscellaneous piece of writing (essay) about a kind of medical perspective. 1 month later, I received an invoice for US$3600 by email and my essay had been uploaded as Editorial on the journal’s homepage. I had just sent my writing directly to an editor instead of submitting through the journal’s manuscript submission...

We used a detailed data from a referenced paper as data to verify the formula which we derived. We included that paper as a reference, and changed the variable name of the table to our own. And we added the variable, which can be obtained from an easy calculation, to our data table. Also we used the original formula on the paper as a reference. Our manuscript has been already accepted and is soon to be published. Should we ask or inform the author of the referenced paper about our citation? If...

I submitted a manuscript to an international journal and it is currently under review. In the meantime I have planning to present at an international conference to be held in February 2018. For this conference, the 700 - 1000 words’ extended abstract is to be shown in the proceedings. The content of the presentation will be a part of the paper instead of the whole paper. As I said my paper is under review and is not yet accepted, and the initial result is to be informed within December 2017. If...

Can I make a presentation at an international conference with the same data which was already used at a domestic conference, if I would use different analytical methods and I would deepen the contents?

A collaborator (Full Professor) and I (Assistant Professor) have been working on a project with one of the collaborator's students for some time. We agreed early on that the student is the first author, as it is part of their thesis work, I am the last and corresponding author, because I came up with the idea for the project, and am the person with the technical and theoretical expertise needed to complete the project. The collaborator was to be the middle author. After the first draft was...

I’m going to submit my paper to the journal Clinics in Mother and Child Health. I have chosen this journal because: 1. I am an occasional reader of this journal, 2. Article Processing Charge is not so high among other open access journals, 3. It has an impact factor. However, this journal cannot be searched in Pub Med and Web of Science, and only searched in Google scholar. As my affiliated institution is asking us to beware of predatory journals, I want to confirm that this journal is not one...
