The policies and guidelines provided on this page are put in place to protect the quality and integrity of all forms of scholarly practice and research, as well as the reputations of the publications produced by MJMP.
Issues covered in this Publication Ethics page are:
1.Redundant Submission: Submission of papers to multiple publications is unethical. It wastes the time of the editors and peer reviewers that form research communities and contribute to the publication of scholarly journals. Any article found to have been submitted to more than one journal, published by MJEE or another publisher, will be immediately rejected. Sanctions, such as a ban from submitting further publications for a specified period may also be considered. Authors must inform the editors of journals to which they submit their work about any related papers by any of the authors of the article that have been submitted to the same or other journals.
2.Article Authorship:Those submitting papers should carefully check that all those whose work (in research or writing) contributed to the paper are acknowledged as contributing authors. No one who made a meaningful contribution to the article should be left out. Similarly, individuals who did not make a meaningful contribution should not be included as contributing authors for the sake of prestige or their own referencing quota. To clarify, the list of authors should include all those who can legitimately claim authorship.
3. Plagiarism: Plagiarism is the unauthorised and/or unacknowledged use or imitation of works, language, and ideas of another. Generally, in the context of article publication, plagiarism occurs when one researcher/author uses the words, language, or ideas of another researcher/author without making it clear within the narrative or referencing of the article that this has occurred; that is, passing off a piece of research or text as his or her own.
4. Dishonesty – authors must use their best endeavors to ensure the material that they submit contains no fictitious data, reference omissions, or false statements.
Focus and Scope
The scope of MJMP is ranging from mathematical foundation to practical engineering design in all areas of mechatronic systems. The editorial board is international and original unpublished papers are welcome from throughout the world. The journal is devoted primarily to research papers, but very high quality survey and tutorial papers are also published.
There is no publication charge for the authors.
Peer Review Process
MJMP publishes only peer-reviewed papers. The Editor assigns each submitted manuscript to a Section Editor, who will relies on at least two anonymous reviewers to decide on the acceptance of the paper, on mandatory modifications, or rejection of the paper. The Author is responsible for checking the galley proofs prior to publication. The review process may take approximately two ~three months to be completed. Targeted publication time is six months from the end of the month in which the manuscript is received, provided that the author responds immediately to all communications.
Open Access Policy
The journal provides readers with immediate free access to all published content.
