JOURNAL OF RESEARCH IN SCIENCE ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY
the Journal of Research in Science Engineering and Technology (JRSET) endeavors to select and publish high-quality articles that can freely and accessibly contribute to the advancement of our knowledge in these fields. To reach this goal, we follow the blind peer review process carefully and fairly, and with respect to copyright, provide articles in the form of open access to readers. The whole process of publishing articles (from submitting to publishing the final version) is free and no money is received from the authors to further develop science and get closer to the knowledge of experts. Certainly, this opportunity can be an effective step in a better understanding of Science Engineering and Technology in society.

the Journal of Research in Science Engineering and Technology (JRSET) strives to be able to select and publish high standard articles in the fields of management and accounting through a peer-review process and open access strategy. To achieve this goal, the reviewing process must be fair, accurate, and the same for everyone. Certainly, mutual trust is the result of justice in reviewing and accuracy in work. Developing clear ethical principles that can be effective for potential issues between authors, reviewers, and editors will increase the journal’s credibility and reliability in the future. For this reason, effective ethical principles are drawn for the Journal of Research in Science Engineering and Technology that meet the needs of authors when submitting a manuscript, peer reviewers, and editors to prepare and publish it. All JRSET’s authors, reviewers, and editors are encouraged to read codes of ethics and contact the Editor-in-Chief, Morteza Rahmani, at firstname.lastname@example.org, if they have any questions or concerns. These guideline apply to the Journal of Research in Science Engineering and Technology from October 6, 2020, and maybe revised at any time by the Editor-in-Chief.
Ethical principles for authors
Plagiarism: All manuscripts submitted to the journal must be free from any form of plagiarism, distortion, or fabrication of research. Plagiarism takes many forms; Inspired by other authors’ articles without mentioning their names, copying the original parts, and even research results proven by others. Authors are expected to cite others’ articles and ideas if they use them, even if they have not quoted them literally. These principles also apply to published articles, unpublished articles, and articles submitted electronically to authors. Plagiarism in all its forms is an immoral and unacceptable act.
Self-Plagiarism: An unethical act in publishing articles. This style of plagiarism occurs in two ways. First: that the authors go back to a part of their previous writings using similar and close paragraphs and sentences that they have published in the past and repeat them in their next articles without reference or even acknowledgment. Second, the authors submit several articles for review, with minor variations from each other, simultaneously in different journals without reference to them.
If authors use the same author’s phrase or sentence in their work, it is necessary to indicate it with a quotation mark “(Abcdef”) and to cite the page number accurately. The authors in the direct quotation should not change the structure of the sentence and should cite the exact same thing.
If plagiarism is proven by browsers or editorial boards, in severe cases of plagiarism (such as copying paragraphs from other sources without citing), the article will be desk rejected from the journal and the author is also banned from submitting its article for a certain period of time. In the case of minor plagiarism (such as a duplicate paragraph in the research method section), the author is asked to explain duplicate sentences.
Conflict of interest: Points out that if the authors have any interest in this research or have done this research with organizational affiliation and any benefit such as commercial, political, financial, or academic should be removed at the time of submitting the article. because of leading to errors in the reviewing process. However, in the last part of the article, the authors are obliged to mention any benefit that the research has interested, such as financial benefit or any other form, after the article has been accepted by the reviewers and received an e-mail by the chief-in-editor.
blind peer review: Authors are unaware of the reviewer’s name, and the journal provides articles to reviewers without mentioning authors’ names. Authors should not communicate with the reviewers apart from the conditions for submitting the article, and authors should not submit the article on their own and directly to the reviewer.
Accuracy: Authors are required to fully describe their entire research process as well as provide a final discussion of the importance of their research. In any case, the results of the research must be fully reported, whether the hypotheses are confirmed or rejected. In each article, the statistical hypothesis, theoretical support, research method, measurement of variables operationally, and then the findings and its interpretation should be fully disclosed.
If the authors themselves are aware of a significant error in their research process, they should inform the journal immediately and the reviewer should be aware of it in the shortest possible time.
All references in the main body of the article should also be cited in the bibliography sources perfectly and adapted with journal standards.
Participation of authors: All authors named as authors should have a significant role to play in the research process and share responsibility for the results. Only authors who are responsible for the results of the research can be named. Otherwise, you can thank them at the end of the article as contributors.
Corresponding author: The person who is introduced as the responsible author should make sure that the e-mail address sent is correct because all correspondence and processes will be the corresponding author during the review and after the publication of the article.
Duties of the Corresponding author:
– Check and mention the e-mail address of the authors and ensure the correctness of their e-mail address.
– Check and mention the full mailing address of the authors.
– Check and mention phone and fax numbers.
– Make sure to load all shapes and images of the article along with its description.
– Make sure all tables and descriptions and footnotes are loaded.
– The article should be checked by the corresponding author for the correct pronunciation and grammatical rules.
– Properly arrange the list of resources in the standard journal format.
– Ensure that all references at the end of the text are used in the main text of the article.
Copyright: Authors should review their article for copyright and possible flaws. Authors must obtain permission from the authors to review the article before submitting it. Authors should also avoid using words that may cause tension. Authors should not use sexually explicit language that may be interpreted as immoral by a particular group.
Ethical principles for reviewers
The review process is a highly sensitive and critical activity that can increase the credibility of the journal and, at the same time, increase the level of development of the literature in that field. The reviewers may be selected from researchers and scholars who submit their manuscripts to JRSET. We expect the reviewing process to be fair and based solely on scientific criteria and to consider the following points at any time and for each manuscript.
Right of Refusal: The reviewers have the right not to accept the review of an manuscript. When reviewers feel they have insufficient expertise in judging a manuscript, should refuse to accept it. Also, if there is a conflict of interest, they should refuse to review. Sometimes a reviewer may collaborate in two journals, if she/he has received the same article that has previously judged, should inform the editor-in-chief.
Blind peer review: JRSET has a blind peer review process. The identity of the reviewers is unknown to the authors, so the reviewers should refuse to review manuscripts that the author finds out about their identity. In this process, reviewers have the right to see the authors ‘profiles but are not allowed to talk about the authors’ identities and reveal their identities.
Conflict of Interest: Reviewers should refuse to review manuscripts that have a conflict of interest, such as organizational, personal, institutional, and financial, and any factors that reflect the authors’ relationship to companies, organizations, and individuals. If the Reviewers perceive any conflict of interest, they should inform the editor-in-chief immediately.
Unbiased: Reviewers should not take personal or ethnic biases into account during their review process and should evaluate all points of the manuscripts with accurate and fair scientific criteria.
Confidentiality: Reviewers should note that the review process is confidential and should not be leaked outside the journal. Only the editors of the JRSET have the right to speak to the review on the manuscript. If reviewers observe any unprofessional behavior, they should discuss the matter with the editor-in-chief before their concerns are leaked out of the journal.
Accuracy: The JRSET expects the reviewers to evaluate the manuscripts by up-to-date and accurate standards and to have convincing reasons for each comment. The reviewers should inform the author of their points in detail and sincerely try to improve the manuscripts. Also, The reviewers should be honest with the editor of what think about publishing the manuscripts.
Timeliness: The reviewers must express their judgments within two weeks. If they can not deliver at this time, they must coordinate with the JRSET Managing Editor to either request more time or select a new reviewer.
Ethical principles for editors
Independence: JRSET editors must maintain their independence under all circumstances and be impartial in deciding to reject or accept manuscripts. Of course, the editors make this decision in consultation with the reviewers. However, in the case of manuscripts that are inconsistent with the journal’s mission or inappropriate, editors have the right to reject them without review.
Unbiased: Authors expect editors to review a manuscript in an impartial, confidential, unbiased, and fair manner. The criterion for the editors’ judgments is only scientific, and they should refrain from any bias in this way. Knowing the identity of the authors should not lead to bias against them, and they should not use discriminatory directions in their correspondence.
Conflict of Interest: Editors-in-chief can not publish an article in their journal during their career. And about the publication of the article in other journals under Research Hub LLC, it is also submitted completely blind. Editors-in-chief and deputy editors should have no conflict of interest with the authors; Whether individual, organizational, institutional, or financial.
Blind peer review: JRSET has a blind peer review process. But sometimes guest editors may write introductory articles for specific issues, which should be specified in the article.
Confidentiality: Any information about the authors’ articles should not be leaked by the editors-in-chief and other staff of the journal. In the blind peer review process, editors-in-chief must also be careful about the confidentiality of the reviewers’ identities and decide the fate of the article immediately if the names are revealed. Editors-in-chief have access to many raw articles and brilliant ideas and should not use them for personal advantage.
Review Quality: Normally, JRSET journal invites two reviewers to review a manuscript, but depending on the article, that number may increase. The editor decides on the select of reviewers and this decision can not be overshadowed by the authors. The selection of reviewers is based on their scientific competence.
Timeliness: Editors-in-chief should incorporate the manuscript into the peer review process immediately after initial approval and respond quickly to the authors’ questions.
Decision Quality: The reviewer’s comment must be sent to the authors along with the editor’s decision letter. Authors have the right to know the comment of the reviewers about their manuscript. Also, in the event of a dispute between the author and the reviewer, the editor-in-chief can help to resolve the dispute as a mediator.
Authority: The editor-in-chief of the journal is appointed by the members of the Resrach Hub LLC Academy. The editor-in-chief must think honestly, independently, and responsibly about increasing the quality of the journal. The editor-in-chief should select the members of the editorial board, and evaluate the rights and responsibilities of these individuals and their performance.
To create these ethical principles, sources A have been used extensively, which are mentioned below

Reviewing articles as a professional activity plays a significant role in increasing the quality of the journal’s metrics. Here, Scholars who have published their articles in our journal are invited to assist us in the peer-review process in the future.
In the reviewing process, some manuscripts may be refused for several reasons, such as Insufficient expertise for review a manuscript; and existence of conflict of interest, whether individually or organizationally. Our center has a blind peer review process, and reviewers who feel that the principles of ethical codes have been violated can refuse to review (Please see the JRSET ethical principles).
Reviewers should evaluate articles fairly, professionally, standardly, and accurately, and communicate their comments honestly to both the author and the editor-in-chief.
The review process of the article is confidential, and the reviewer should not leak any information from the article to people outside the journal.
Reviewers should treat the author with respect. Also, comments should be addressed to the manuscripts, not the author. The reviewers should look at the article in a constructive and supportive manner. Reviewers’ comments should focus on the content and contributions of the manuscripts and should avoid any editorial or linguistic suggestions. They can advise authors to enlist the help of a professional editor to rewrite their manuscripts.
The reviewers should, as far as possible, present objections with convincing arguments. The reviewers should point out strengths as well as weaknesses.
Reviewers should keep in mind that not to comment on acceptance, rejection, or revision to the author. The final opinion of the Reviewers must be communicated to the editor-in-chief in a separate letter.
The reviewers must express their judgments within two weeks. If they can not deliver at this time, they must coordinate with the JRSET Managing Editor to either request more time or select a new reviewer.
