Code of Scientific Research ethic
Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology
The followings are for the purpose of adhering to the principles of research ethics and for providing a lively and accurate basis for conducting scientific research. Hope that by maintaining mutual respect for research and adhering to ethical principles, we will be able to provide new and valuable research.
- Reporting laboratory results, output of a simulations, and theory of a problem that are not measured or calculated is unethical.
- The manipulation (deletion or addition) of the final laboratory data, the output of a simulation code, and the theoretical data of a problem, so that the results appear to be appropriate and correct, is unethical.
- Deliberate manipulation of the laboratory equipment, apparatus or simulation results in such a way that alter the examination or simulation process so that the results appear to be new and recent is unethical.
- The use of research results (laboratory, simulation and theory) of others, including tables, charts and figures without permission and without referring to the relevant reference is unethical.
- It is unethical to use others’ simulation software, laboratory tools, or to use any equations or programs from others without permission and without referring to the relevant references.
- The use of important and influential sentences from articles, books, texts, or concepts and documents previously published elsewhere is unethical without referring to the relevant references.
- Texts and sentences taken from other articles must be paraphrased or written in quotation marks. Copying the same sentences from others without any change, even with reference, is unethical.
- The use of important and influential texts and sentences of articles and books and documents published elsewhere in the results section of them, even if it is accompanied by a reference and is paraphrased, is unethical.
- The list of authors should only be limited to those who have made an effective contribution to the creation of the work, including: project execution, data processing, graphing, graph analysis, results analysis, and manuscript writing.
10.Not mentioning the names of the researchers who have contributed effectively to the research is indicative of unethical research behavior, as well as mentioning the names of those who did not play an effective role in any of the steps (executing, data processing, graphing and graphical analysis, etc.).
11.An article in which a thesis supervisor (a senior and a PhD) publishes a work (with minor modification to the original work) in his own name (paper, book, research project, project, etc.) without mentioning the names of fellow students and researchers is a clear example of unethical research.
12.The author must be extremely careful in referring to others’ works so that one's work does not contain plagiarism and that other author or authors' rights are not impaired. In citing material from other publications, cite the source of the material correctly and accurately. The article must not be published in any domestic or foreign journals or a series of seminars and scientific papers or must not be submitted simultaneously to other journals.
