IUJUR places great emphasis on the importance of sound and comprehensive publication ethics. The Journal promotes and values ethical behavior throughout the research publication process, holding students, supervisors, reviewers and editors accountable and responsible for the highest levels of integrity. Publication ethics is the core of IUJUR’s mission to cultivate a culture of curiosity on campus and to foster an engaged student body by providing a unified, ethical and sound forum for undergraduate research.
Accordingly, IUJUR expects:
- Authors of research must sign a contract that submitted research has not been published in another journal, is not currently under review elsewhere and has been submitted to IUJUR with the full knowledge of their supervisors, sponsors and institutions.
- Any research that does not meet requirements regarding citations, references and APA guidelines will be rejected with or without peer review.
- All manuscripts will be reviewed based on research and intellectual content without consideration of age, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, country of origin or political viewpoints of authors.
- All research submitted for peer review will remain strictly confidential by editors and reviewers. Editors and reviewers may not utilize submitted materials without the consent of authors.
