Publishing Policies

Publication ethics: IJASE is devoted to sustain the integrity of the academic record. We encourage authors to refer to the Committee on Publication Ethics’ International Standards for Authors .  The journal policy prohibits an author from submitting the same manuscript for consideration by another journal and does not allow publication of a manuscript that has been published in whole or in part by another journal.

Plagiarism: IJASE take issues of copyright infringement, plagiarism or other breaches of best practice in publication very seriously. We appeal to safeguard the rights of our authors and we always probe claims of plagiarism or misuse of published articles. Where an article, for example, is found to have plagiarized other work or included third-party copyright material without permission or with insufficient acknowledgement, or where the authorship of the article is contested, we reserve the right to take action including, but not limited to: publishing an erratum or corrigendum (correction); retracting the article; taking up the matter with the head of department or dean of the author's institution and/or relevant academic bodies or societies; or taking appropriate legal action.

Prior publication: If material has been previously published, it is not generally acceptable for publication in IJASE. However, there are certain circumstances where previously published material can be considered for publication
