Ethics and Malpractice Statement

Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement

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 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.

Research Misconduct: All research must be carried out within an appropriate ethical framework. If there is 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.
