The MERC Global is committed to support and maintain the highest standards of publication ethics for MERC Global's IJM. Author(s) submitting manuscript(s) / works to the MERC Global for publication will be abide by the terms of copyright agreement. The MERC Global is also committed to maintaining rigorous and fair double-blind peer-review process. Any departures from the defined rules should be brought into the notice of the Editor, who is unequivocally committed to providing swift resolutions to any of such a type of issues. In order to support publication ethics, it is important for authors to avoid:
PLAGIARISM: Authors must not take any idea and work of others without giving them credit, as it
is unfair and dishonest. Authors must not copying even a single sentence from
someone others' manuscript / work, or even one of their own that has previously
been published, without proper citation, as it is considered plagiarism-use
their own words instead.
REDUNDANT PUBLICATIONS (SELF-PLAGIARISM): Authors must not recycle parts of their previous writings by exploiting identical or nearly identical paragraphs or even sentences from earlier writings in subsequent manuscript, without quotation or reference or acknowledgement. Authors must not produce multiple manuscripts, which are slight variations on each other, which are submitted for publication to different publishers however while not acknowledgement of the other manuscript. Authors must not submit several terribly similar manuscripts supported identical experiment. It will create readers less probably to concentrate to the manuscripts.
DATA FABRICATION AND FALSIFICATION: Authors must not use made up data. Authors must do the study actually. Authors must not change some of the data of experiment or study, as both of these practices make people distrust.
MULTIPLE SUBMISSIONS: Authors must not submit the same manuscript, in whole or in part to more than one publisher at the same
time, or at any time while the manuscript is under review. It is also discreditable for an Author to submit a manuscript describing the same research to more than one publisher, unless a resubmission of a manuscript has not been rejected for or withdrawn from publication. It will not only waste the time of editors and peer
reviewers, but also can damage the reputation of journals if published in more
than one. Therefore, an Author may not submit a manuscript/work to MERC Global's publications that is in whole or in part under review elsewhere, nor submit to another publisher a work that is in whole or in part under review at MERC Global.
