Publication Ethics

A. Author's Code of Ethics:

Author's code of ethics aims to give birth to an original work, not a plagiarized work.

In parliamentary law to uphold the truth and the benefits and the meaning of information disseminated so as not to mislead the writer is asked to:

  1. Write carefully, thoroughly, and precisely.
  2. Responsible academically for his writing.
  3. Benefit to the user community.
  4. Uphold the rights, opinions or findings of others.
  5. Be fully aware of non-infringement.

The source is supposed to violate the code of ethics when making out:

  1. Falsification
  2. Fabrication
  3. Plagiarism

Data fabrication is to 'fabricate' data or create data that actually does not exist or more generally create fictitious data.

Falsification of data is can mean to modify the data in accordance with the wishes, especially to fit the conclusion that 'wanted' taken from a sketch.

Plagiarism is taking words or sentences or texts of others without giving sufficient credit (in the quotation).

If the authors do plagiarize, and so he/she is thought to give an intentional 'persecution' because there is a forced style of taking words/ideas without the permission of the proprietor.

The classification of plagiarism can be earned depending on various aspects of view: in terms of substance stolen,

  1. From the level of aim,
  2. In conditions of volume/proportion
    • Light plagiarism: <30%
    • Medium plagiarism: 30-70%
    • Severe plagiarism: > 70%
    • From the form of theft, plagiarism can be done verbatim or can be sourced from various informants and with own words (mosaic).
    • Grounded along the individual source of ideas, there is likewise known as Auto-plagiarism / self-plagiarism: If the work it has been published earlier, then when we get the idea, it should include a citation or quotation. Differently, this can be regarded as auto-plagiarism or self-plagiarism. This is feared because if intended or later applied to add academic credit, it can be seen as a grave infringement of academic moral philosophy.

Somebody who manages one of three violations of academic ethics (falsification, fabrication, and plagiarism) can be read to have moral defects, particularly when seen through the eyes of faith. Religious value denounces violations as part of dishonesty, theft or taking possession of others without rights.
