  • Publication Ethics

    We at GMJ editorial board are aware of the increasing pressure that members of the academic research and publishing community are under today. This can sometimes lead to academic authors falling short of industry standards for ethical publication. We find as a duty of ours to provide support services to authors, we have on occasion been witness to potential cases of ethical violation while editing research papers. A majority of these cases are instances of “accidental plagiarism” where the authors were unwittingly engaging in an unethical practice, mainly because of lack of information and professional training on the subject.
    This realization has made us more aware of our responsibilities toward the academic community. We serve as trusted advisors to thousands of researchers, especially early-career scientists not fully aware of the pitfalls of unethical academic publication. The GMJ editorial board hereby commits to following the best practices of supporting authors to publish ethically, by implementing essential processes and undertaking initiatives to educate authors and optimize editorial processes.
