Publication Ethics (for recent update, please check: ijge.camdemia.ca/publication-ethics)

The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential component in research and in building knowledge base in the discipline. It is a direct reflection of the quality of work of the author and the organizations that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific methods. It is therefore important to follow internationally acceptable standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer and the publisher.

Malpractice Policy
For authors, if there is an evidence or a reasonable belief of violation of IJGE policies and the Terms and Conditions, the manuscript will be automatically rejected. If a paper has already been published, it will be removed from the journal with a notice to the public on the journal website stating "this paper has been removed from the journal due to violation to IJGE policies". In severe case, the authors' names may also be revealed.
    For anyone who is involved in reviewing, editing and publishing, if there is evidence or reasonable belief of violation of IJGE policies, the individual will be subject to disciplinary actions, from suspension to removal, depending on the situation.
