Originality of Content MJT


Author Information Page on Originality of Content
MJT’s policies on the originality of an author’s work begin with the following statement: “Authors should only submit original work that has neither appeared elsewhere for publication, nor which is under review for another publication.” In addition, the following policies offer further clarification on originality in several different contexts

Responsibilities of authors of articles published by MJT
When submitting a manuscript, authors shall disclose whether or not the manuscript has been published previously or if it is still under active consideration by another publication. In addition, if an author submits a manuscript to a other publications while that manuscript is under review by MJT, the author shall immediately notify MJT about the additional submission.

Authors should only submit original work that has neither appeared elsewhere for publication, nor which is under review for another 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 substantive novel contributions beyond those of the previously published work(s).

Editorial reuse of previously published material
It is common in technical publishing for material to be presented at various stages of its evolution. As one example, this can take the form of publishing early ideas in a workshop, more developed work in a conference and fully developed contributions as papers/articles. The MJT recognizes the importance of this evolutionary publication process as a significant means of scientific communication and fully supports this publishing paradigm. At the same time the MJT requires that this evolutionary process be fully referenced.

Author obligation to cite previous work
If author(s), within the evolutionary publishing paradigm, have used their own previously published or submitted material as a basis for a new submission, it requires that the author(s) cite the previous work(s) and very clearly indicate how the new submission differs from the previously published work(s).

Author obligation to inform editors of previous work
Authors should only submit original work that has neither appeared elsewhere for publication, nor which is under review for another refereed publication. Multiple submission is defined as a given manuscript being concurrently under active consideration by two or more publications. MJT Board will decide to allow or not for multiple submission, based on authors information to the Board.
