Editorial Policies

Focus and Scope

CJET is a peer-reviewed, Open Access multidisciplinary engineering journal that publishes original research articles as well as review articles in all areas of engineering technology. It publishes both theoretical and experimental high-quality papers of permanent interest, not previously published in journals, in the field of engineering technology. In addition to peer-reviewed original research papers, the Editorial Board welcomes original research reports, state-of-the-art reviews and communications in the broadly defined field of engineering science and technology.

Peer Review Process

Manuscripts submitted to CJET will generally be reviewed by two (2) experts. Each author may recommend four (4) experts in the field of study. Authors should be communicated of the final decision on their articles within four (4) months of submission. CJET aims for very fast publication and will endeavour to reach a first decision within four (4) weeks.  

 

Ethics and Misconducts

Ethics

The Editors of Covenant University Journals (CUJ) strictly ensure that all research must have been carried out within an appropriate ethical framework. If there is a suspicion that the work has not taken place within an appropriate ethical framework, Editors will follow the Misconduct policy and may reject the manuscript, and/or contact the author(s), institution or ethics committee. On rare occasions, if the Editor has serious concerns about the ethics of a study, the manuscript may be rejected on ethical grounds.

Confidentiality

Editors will treat all manuscripts submitted to all CU Journals in confidence. Reviewers are also required to treat manuscripts confidentially. CUJ will not share manuscripts with third parties outside of CUJ, except in cases of suspected misconduct. Manuscripts may be shared with other Editors of CUJ unless authors indicate on submission that they do not wish their manuscript to be passed on beyond the journal they submitted to. 

Consent

For all research involving human subjects, informed consent to participate in the study should be obtained from participants (or their parent or guardian in the case of children under 18) and a statement to this effect should appear in the manuscript.

Misconduct

CUJ takes seriously all allegations of potential misconduct. As members of COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics), all CU Journals will follow COPE guidelines outlining how to deal with cases of suspected misconduct. In cases of suspected research or publication misconduct, it may be necessary for Editors to contact and share manuscripts with third parties, for example, author(s)’ institution(s) and Ethics Committee(s). CUJ may also seek advice from COPE and discuss anonymized cases in the COPE forum. Editors may also involve CUJ‟s independent ombudsman.

Research Misconduct

All research must be carried out within an appropriate ethical framework. If there is a suspicion that research has not taken place within an appropriate ethical framework, Editors may reject a manuscript and may inform third parties, for example, author(s)’ institution(s) and Ethics Committee(s). In cases of proven research misconduct involving published articles, such articles may be retracted.

Publication misconduct

As members of COPE, all CU journals will follow COPE guidelines outlining how to deal with cases of potential publication misconduct.

Plagiarism

CUJ is a member of Crosscheck’s plagiarism detection initiative and uses plagiarism detection software. If plagiarism is identified, COPE guidelines on plagiarism will be followed.
