Publication Malpractice Policy

Publication malpractice policy:

By submitting a manuscript to the Abhidhvaj Law Journal, the authors affirm that the manuscript is their own, original work, that it hasn’t already been published or isn’t currently being considered for publication somewhere else, and that any sources used in the manuscript that aren’t their own have been correctly cited.

Editors’ Accountability : 

Confidentiality  – The corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, where applicable, are the only people who should know anything about a manuscript that has been submitted.

Interest conflicts and disclosure :
Without the author’s express written approval, the editor and editorial board members will not utilise any unpublished materials revealed in a submitted manuscript for their own study.

Authors’ Obligations :
Reporting standards –  Original research report authors should include an accurate summary of the work done as well as an objective appraisal of its importance. The underlying data should be appropriately reported in the study. A paper should provide enough detail and references to allow others to reproduce the work. Fraudulent or willfully incorrect remarks are unethical and must be avoided.

Basic mistakes in published works : When an author finds a substantial error or inaccuracy in a piece of writing that has already been published, it is the author’s responsibility to contact the journal editor or publisher as soon as possible and work with the editor to get the material retracted or corrected in the form.

It is the author’s obligation to confirm that the manuscript hasn’t already been submitted for consideration or publication elsewhere before submitting it. This conduct goes against the idea of fair publication and could have negative repercussions for the authors.

It is the author’s duty and responsibility to disclose all the information obtained from other sources that are not the author’s original idea. All authors are required to submit a duly signed copyright form; failure to do so will result in the manuscript (accepted by the double-blind peer review process) not being published.

The authors retain the copyright, but others are free to reproduce distribute and exhibit the copy-righted work, as well as derivative works based on it, under specific circumstances.

Plagiarism is completely prohibited in ALJ and such text will not be considered for publication.

All manuscripts submitted at ALJ are checked through Turnitin plagiarism software  and other software and the report of the same is also provided to all authors and reviewers for their understanding.

The organization which is called as ALJ reserve the right to reject manuscript that contain pleg more then we mentioned in our guidelines.

Authors may please take note that providing citations might not necessarily eradicate plagiarism.

The author will be given the opportunity to respond to the objection if any claims regarding the author’s copyright or a significant degree of plagiarism are discovered after publishing.

If the ALJ finds that the plagiarism or copyright complaint is valid, they are required to remove the manuscripts without asking for a refund.

Herein, Abhidhvaj Law Journal is referred to as ALJ.
