Authorship of the research article shall be limited to those who have made significant contribution to the concept / study / analysis presented in the article. It is the responsibility of the first author to ensure that all the contributors are fairly acknowledged and are placed accurately in the list of authors. Ghost (use of anonymous author to write an article, such as junior researcher, employee and paid sponsor), Guest (person mentioned in the list of authors who has made insignificant or no contribution in the preparation of the article), and Gift (senior researcher, friend or colleague of the main author) authorship will be considered unethical and any allegations regarding such cases will be investigated thoroughly. In case such practices are identified, the author/s in question will be removed from an article through a post-publication correction or erratum. In addition the JASM may choose to ban the authors in question from submitting articles in future.

Submission of the Research Article

The article already published elsewhere or simultaneously submitted to other publication will not be considered. The submission is accepted by the JASM on the understanding that it is an original work of the author/s. Use of any data, figures, maps or images without appropriate acknowledgment or permission is considered plagiarism. Using any idea, concept or text as it is or paraphrasing it will also be included in plagiarism. All allegations of plagiarism will be investigated. The JASM is free to take any action in the proven case of plagiarism as deemed fit from time to time against the authors in question.

Ethical Research

The JASM tries hard to maintain highest standards of research through the publication of the Journal. Any submission found unfit or not matching the expected standards, it is at the sole discretion of the Journal not to accept such research article. If any submission is found to contain fabricated, non-factual or misleading data, the author will be contacted for seeking the explanation. If the author does not give any explanation or the explanation provided by the author is found unsatisfactory, the submission will not be accepted for publication. Similarly, in the cases of repeat offenders, persons using abusive language or making baseless allegations against the editors, the Journal or the Society, the editors will have the right to refuse to review / accept the articles from such authors.
