Authorship and Contributorship
During the submission of a manuscript at a conference, the corresponding author agrees to the term that all the authors have significantly contributed to the manuscript. Inappropriate addition or subtraction of an author is highly discouraged for publication in the SciEn Conference Series: Engineering. It is the corresponding author’s responsibility that all the authors have contributed to the manuscript. Conference organizers are required to follow this policy.
Changes to Authorship
The corresponding author is requested to carefully consider the author's contributions and order of authors before submitting a manuscript. Authorship cannot be changed at any point once the proceedings are submitted to the SCS: Engineering for publication.
Post-Publication Discussions and Corrections
The Journal does not have any option on the website for post-publication discussion however it is encouraged that any comments on published papers should be directly emailed to the editorial office ([email protected]).
Allegations of Research Misconduct
SciEn Conference Series: Engineering takes research misconduct (e.g. plagiarism, data fabrication, citation manipulation, etc.) seriously. Although all the papers are screened for plagiarism checking before publication. However, if potential misconduct occurs, the concerned person should email directly the Editor-in-Chief ([email protected]) expressing their concern. The Editor-in-Chief will investigate the allegation(s) with the help of the relevant editor and corresponding author of the specific paper. The Editor-in-Chief will take a decision based on the degree of misconduct. If a major misconduct is found which may significantly affect the results and findings of the paper or it is proved that the authors have manipulated or fabricated the data, that paper will be retracted. The Editor-in-Chief will email the outcome of the investigation to the person who raised the concern of potential misconduct, the conference organizers, and the corresponding author.
There should be no change in the published articles. However, the articles may be subjected to retraction due to plagiarism, redundant publication, or flawed/fabricated data to uphold the reliability of scientific knowledge. The Editor-in-Chief will initiate the retraction process at the request of the author(s) or any concerned person. A retraction notice will be emailed to the corresponding author, concerned person, and conference organizer including the details of the paper, the reason for the retraction, and who is retracting the article.
