Journal of Theoretical and Applied Information
Technology supports the highest standards of intellectual
discourse in its publications. All members of the publication
process -- authors, editors and reviewers -- should be treated
with fairness and balance, and adhere to the principles in
Section of “PUBLICATION
The principles in this document represent a minimum set of
requirements. Individual publications may have additional
requirements. A publication with additional requirements shall
have a publicly available statement of publication policies and
Authorship credit should be based on a substantial
intellectual contribution. It is assumed that all authors have
had a significant role in the creation of a manuscript that
bears their names. Therefore, the list of authors on an article
serves multiple purposes; it indicates who is responsible for
the work and to whom questions regarding the work should be
addressed. Moreover, the credit implied by authorship is often
used as a measure of the contributors’ productivity when they
are evaluated for employment, promotions, grants, and prizes.
a) The Journal of Theoretical and Applied Information
Technology affirms that authorship credit must be reserved for
individuals who have met each of the following conditions:
Made a significant intellectual contribution to the
theoretical development, system or experimental design,
prototype development, and/or the analysis and interpretation of
data associated with the work contained in the manuscript.
-Contributed to drafting the article or reviewing and/or
revising it for intellectual content.
-Approved the final version of the manuscript, including
references. (Deceased persons deemed appropriate as authors
should be so included with a footnote reporting their death.)
b) In papers with multiple authorship, the order of the
authors shall be at the discretion of the authors and shall be
considered as per time of copyrihgt submission.
c) Once the
list and order of authors has been established, the list and
order of authors should not be altered without permission of all
d) Any part of an article essential to its main
conclusions shall be the responsibility of the corresponding
e) In the case of papers with multiple authors, the
“corresponding” author must be designated as having
responsibility for overseeing the publication process and
ensuring the integrity of the final document. The corresponding
author accepts the responsibility for:
- Including as
co-authors all persons appropriate at time of final paper and
copyright submission as acceptnce is based on blind process and
aurhoship claims at time of acceptance are considered
provisional by the journal;
- Obtaining from all co-authors
their assent to be designated as such, as well as their approval
of the final version of the manuscript; and
- Keeping all co-authors apprised of the
current status of a manuscript submitted for publication,
including furnishing all co-authors with copies of the reviewers
comments and a copy of the published version, as appropriate.
f) Co-authors have responsibility of working with
corresponidng author for work being processed. They should
remain knowledgeable in so far as possible regarding the status
of the manuscript, including the nature of any revisions.
If a manuscript is revised and resubmitted to the same journal,
co-authors should be asked by the corresponding author to
reaffirm their assent to be listed as co-authors and to approve
the revised version. In addition, if the manuscript is rejected
or withdrawn from a journal and then submitted to a different
Journal of Theoretical and Applied Information Technology
volume, the co-authors should be asked again by the
corresponding author to affirm their assent to authorship even
if no substantive changes have been made.
claims can be requesetd to be amended by the corresonding author
after submissinon of final document along with copyrihgt
document of the manuscript to the journal prior publication date
announced. However, no request of authorship amendment shall be
entertained after publicatoin and distribution of the paper. The
responsible handling editor shall be contacted in the above case
for any queries.
B. Responsibilities of Manuscript Authors
a) Peer review is essential to scientific and technical
discourse. Authors are encouraged to have the first formal
publication of their results be a peer-reviewed paper.
b) Financial support of the work being reported and of the
authors should be clearly acknowledged, as should any potential
conflict of interest.
c) Methods and materials should be described in sufficient
detail to permit evaluation and replication.
d) All data should be presented upon request by the editor,
to facilitate the review process.
e) Authors have an obligation to correct errors promptly.
f) Journal of Theoretical and Applied Information
Technology defines plagiarism as the use of someone else’s prior
ideas, processes, results, or words without explicitly
acknowledging the original author and source. Plagiarism in any
form is unacceptable and is considered a serious breach of
professional conduct, with potentially severe ethical and legal
g) Fabrication and falsification are unacceptable.
h) Except as indicated in Section of “Multiple
Publication of Original Technical Material inJournal of
Theoretical and Applied Information Technology Periodicals”,
authors should only submit original work that has neither
appeared elsewhere for publication, nor which is under review
for another refereed publication. If authors have used their own
previously published work(s) as a basis for a new submission,
they are required to cite the previous work(s) and very briefly
indicate how the new submission offers substantively novel
contributions beyond those of the previously published work(s).
Authors should not discuss any aspect of a manuscript under
evaluation with reviewers of the submitted manuscript.
i) Only those articles of a researcher’s publication record
that are directly relevant to the subject matter of the paper
under consideration should be included in the bibliography.
Furthermore, an article should be appropriately labeled as
"submitted" when still in the review process or "in press" when
it has been accepted for publication but has not yet appeared in
j) The Journal of Theoretical and Applied Information
Technology assumes that the material submitted to its
publications is properly available for general dissemination to
the readership of those publications. It is the responsibility
of the authors, not the Journal of Theoretical and Applied
Information Technology, to determine whether disclosure of their
material requires the prior consent of other parties and, if so,
to obtain it. If authors make use of charts, photographs, or
other graphical or textual material from previously published
material, the authors are responsible for obtaining written
permission to use the material in the manuscript.
