For any reuse or redistribution of a work, you must also make clear the license terms under which the work was published.

This broad license was developed to facilitate open access to, and free use of, original works of all types. Applying this standard license to your own work will ensure your right to make your work freely and openly available.


Publication ethics policy

Journal of Innovation in Psychology, Education and Didactics (JIPED) is committed to publish only original articles which are not considered for publication elsewhere and have not been previously published. All the authors of an article jointly accept the responsibility for the submitted manuscript.

The articles submitted for publication in JIPED are expected to acknowledge the work of other researchers through appropriate references.

All the articles are verified with Plagiarism Detector software. Allegations of fraud or misconduct will be investigated thoroughly. If, after due process, a paper is found to contain ethical violations, it will be rejected or withdrawn.

Examples of infractions against generally acceptable standards for research and publication of results include, but are not limited to:

  • Fabrication/ falsification: making up research findings or manipulating research data with the intention of giving a false impression.
  • Plagiarism: representing the thoughts, words, ideas, discoveries or data of another as one’s own original work. Plagiarism includes copying the work of part of the work of another, either published or unpublished, without giving a proper reference or citation.
  • Redundant/ Duplicate publication: the resubmission of substantial parts of the author’s own published work, presented as if it were a completely new work.
  • Authorship without the author’s knowledge:  a person is mentioned as an author in an article on which he/ she has not cooperated.
  • Unacknowledged authorship: an author is not acknowledged or incorrectly acknowledged for his/ her contribution to an article.
  • Undeclared conflict of interest

Authors: when authors fail to declare all conflicts of interest relevant to their publication (i.e. relationships, both financial and personal, that might affect the conduct or interpretation of their work and about which editors or readers might wish to be made aware).

Reviewers: when reviewers fail to declare all conflicts of interest relevant to the submission being considered (i.e., relationships, both financial and personal, that might prevent an unbiased and objective evaluation of the work).
