It is necessary to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer and the publisher. Our ethic statements are based on Elsevier recommendations and COPE's Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.
All Journals published by The Science and Information (SAI) Organization are dedicated to following best practices on ethical matters, errors and retractions. The prevention of publication malpractice is one of the important responsibilities of the editorial board. Any kind of unethical behavior is not acceptable, and The Science and Information (SAI) Organization do not tolerate plagiarism in any form.
Authors submitting articles to The Science and Information (SAI) Organization Journals affirm that manuscript contents are original.
When plagiarism has been found to have occurred, The Science and Information (SAI) Organization will take the actions as determined by the type of plagiarism. Unless determined otherwise during the investigation, all authors are deemed to be individually and collectively responsible for the content of a plagiarizing paper. The Science and Information (SAI) Organization Editorial Board places the investigation of each claim of plagiarism at the highest priority for resolution and action.

The following key principles govern The Science and Information Organization’s approach to Sanctions policies and procedures:
Measures to Comply with Sanctions
Before engaging in any commercial relationship or transaction, The Science and Information Organization ensures that these relationships and transactions comply with applicable U.S., U.N., and E.U. Sanctions laws, by screening those individuals or entities against the SDN list and other relevant Sanctions lists.
The Science and Information Organization shall also screen its transactions as to potential violations on country specific sanctions.
In carrying out such screening, The Science and Information Organization may rely on information provided to it by its authors, participants, and partners unless it is aware or suspects that those participant and partners, or the information provided, is unreliable or dishonest, or relates to a high-risk jurisdiction.
