Publication ethics

When it comes to publication ethics, the International Conference on Intellectuals’ Global Responsibility (ICIGR) takes every precaution. Plagiarism of any kind, including but not limited to the use of another author’s ideas without giving proper credit or presenting someone else’s work as one’s own, will not be published in the proceedings of this Conference. The ICIGR Committee retains the right to employ plagiarism detection software on any and all submissions.

All authors submitting papers to the ICIGR for publication agree that the papers are original to them and have not been plagiarized in any way.

In order to guarantee the ultimate high quality of all accepted submissions. On average, two anonymous reviewers evaluate each submission.

Peer reviewers should point out when authors have failed to properly cite other relevant published work. The ICIGR Committee ensures a thorough and impartial peer review and publication process. Review copies of manuscripts are to be kept strictly confidential. Peer-reviewed research results and ideas should be treated as confidential and not used for personal gain. Reviewers ought to be impartial, and their comments ought to be well-stated and backed up by evidence, so that authors can use them to enhance the paper in question. If a referee is selected but then realizes he isn’t qualified to review the research reported in the manuscript or that he can’t review it quickly, he should let the editor know. If a reviewer has a personal, financial, professional, or other conflict of interest with any of the authors, companies, or institutions associated with the submitted papers, they should recuse themselves from reviewing those submissions.

In the event that misconduct is discovered at any time, including after publication, all articles that are not in compliance with these standards will be removed from the proceedings.
