  • Research Ethics

    The journal adheres to the principles set forth in the Helsinki Declaration (https://www.wma.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/DoH-Oct2013-JAMA.pdf) and holds that all reported research involving "Human beings" conducted in accordance with such principles.

    All papers reporting experiments using animals must include a statement in the MATERIAL AND METHODS section giving assurance that all animals have received human care in compliance with the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (https://www.nap.edu/read/12910/chapter/1) and indicating approval by the institutional ethical review board.

  • Plagiarism

    Plagiarism takes many forms, from ‘passing off’ another’s paper as the author’s own paper, to copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another’s paper (without attribution), to claiming results from research conducted by others. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical behavior and is unacceptable. Authors should submit original works and sources must be appropriately cited or quoted.

    According to COPE, plagiarism ranges from the unreferenced use of others’ published and unpublished ideas including research grant applications to submission under new authorship of a complex paper, sometimes in a different language. It may occur at any stage of planning, research, writing or publication; it applies to print and electronic versions.

    All submitted manuscripts are checked for plagiarism using Crossref Similarity Check and subsequently reviewed for their suitability for publication in the Journal of Clinical Obstetrics & Gynecology. Manuscripts with high plagiarism, insufficient originality, serious scientific or technical flaws are rejected.

  • Duplicate submission

    Authors should not submit the same manuscript or similar manuscript based on the same database, in the same or different languages, simultaneously to more than one journal.

  • Fabrication and falsification of data

    Scientific misconduct in research and non-research publications includes but is not necessarily limited to data fabrication; data falsification, including deceptive manipulation of images; purposeful failure to disclose conflicts of interest; and plagiarism. Some people consider failure to publish the results of clinical trials and other human studies a form of scientific misconduct.

    When scientific misconduct is alleged, or concerns are otherwise raised about the conduct or integrity of work described in submitted or published papers, the journal acts according to the COPE Guidelines.

  • Citations manipulation

    A manuscript should contain only relevant citations. The inclusion of citations that are not relevant to the work is strongly discouraged. Similarly, irrelevant self-citation to increase one’s citation is unethical.
