Allegations of Misconduct

The ZJPAS takes research misconduct seriously and prevents the publication of miscounted research. However, because there is no universal definition of research misconduct, the editorial board defines it broadly in terms of action and conduct. The ZJPAS attempts to detect any form of fabrication or falsification at every stage of manuscript processing, ranging from the preliminary screening to the thorough assessment of a revised manuscript and even beyond publication. ZJPAS maintains the right to remove or withdraw an article that has been made up or is fraudulent.
