Research and publication misconduct

Engineering of Biomaterials Journal and its Publisher emphasize the importance of high research standards and publication ethics. All cases of various research misconduct (plagiarism, data fabrication, image manipulation) will be treated seriously when encountered.

Plagiarism and self-plagiarism
(copying text, ideas, images, or data from another source, without giving credit to the original) are not acceptable. Manuscripts submitted to Engineering of Biomaterials are subjected to the verification process using Plagiarism Checker (Grammarly). It is forbidden to manipulate or adjust image files in any way that could lead to misinterpretation of the information provided by the original image. Furthermore, data presented must be original and not inappropriately selected, manipulated, or enhanced. If any signs of research misconduct shall be detected and confirmed, the Editorial Team contacts the authors in question immediately. In such a case, the manuscript may be rejected (and only open for resubmission for smaller faults), while the published journal article may be retracted. Corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies may be published.

Moreover, in case of serious and deliberate example of research misconduct the Publisher, together with the Editor-in-Chief may decide to contact the authorities of the institution listed in the authors’ affiliation.
