Publication Ethics

Authors are responsible for the originality of manuscripts submitted to Mapta Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MJMIE) and the original data based on which the manuscript is provided must be available upon on editor request. Authors are responsible for the contents of their manuscript, including article claims, conclusions, and appropriate citation, acknowledgments, and author contribution.

Authors of Mapta Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering must confirm the following:

  • Submitted manuscripts must be the original work of the author(s)
  • Only unpublished manuscripts should be submitted
  • It is unethical to submit a manuscript to more than one journal concurrently
  • Any conflict of interest must be clearly stated
  • Acknowledge the sources of data used in the development of the manuscript
  • All errors discovered in the manuscript after submission must be swiftly communicated to the Editor

Plagiarism

Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to:

  • Directly copying text from other sources without attribution
  • Copying ideas, images, or data from other sources without attribution
  • Reusing text from your own previous publications without attribution or agreement of the editor
    • Exception: Reusing text from the Methods section in the author’s previous publications, with attribution to the source, is acceptable.
  • Using an idea from another source with slightly modified language without attribution

If plagiarism is detected during the peer review process, the manuscript may be rejected. If plagiarism is detected after publication, we may issue a correction or retract the paper, as appropriate.

Mapta Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering use "iThenticate" software to detect plagiarism.

Peer Review Process

All published articles in Mapta Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MJMIE) must be passed through peer review process. 

The submitted manuscript is firstly reviewed by editorial team. It will be evaluated in the office whether it is suitable with focus and scope or not. Manuscripts that do not meet this criteria are returned to the authors within one week of receipt. Every submitted manuscript which passes this step will be checked to identify any plagiarism before being reviewed by reviewers. Regarding the plagiarism, editorial team will be used plagiarism checker and Google Scholar network.

Manuscripts that pass the initial review are assigned to an Associate Editor, who selects several referees based on their expertise in that particular field. Each manuscript is reviewed by at least two referees under a double-blind peer review process, where both the referees and the authors are kept anonymous. Referees are asked to evaluate the manuscript based on its originality, soundness of methodology, impact to design research, and relevance to design practices. To facilitate timely publication, referees are asked to complete their reviews within three weeks. After collecting the referees' reports, the Associate Editor makes a recommendation on the acceptability of the manuscript to the Editor-in-Chief.

Based on the referees' comments and the Associate Editor's recommendation, the Editor-in-Chief makes a final decision on the acceptability of the manuscript and communicates to the authors the decision, along with referees' reports. The final decision can be "Accept Submission", "Revisions Required", "Resubmit for Review", "Resubmit Elsewhere", or "Decline Submission." A revised manuscript should be re-submitted within six months of the decision. It will usually be returned to the original referees for evaluation.

Publication Frequency

The journal is published tri annual (April, August, December).
