Copyright and author entitlement

1. What happens about copyright?

In accordance with academic and professional protocols, Cybernomics cannot accept an article if it is not the author's original work, has been published before  or is currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. The article must not contain any libellous or unlawful statements or in any way infringe the rights of others. The author must be the owner of the copyright and be entitled to sign the Author Copyright Agreement. In submitting an article, the author complies with these conditions.

If/when an article is accepted for publication, Author Copyright Agreements should be submitted , along with the final accepted version of the article. Each author must sign a copyright agreement (Author Copyright Agreement) form after reading the Explanatory Notes below. Signatures of all authors may appear on one form or be sent on individual forms. Each form must list the names of all authors of the article under the title of the article at the top of the form, and must reflect the order given in the article. We would expect a "Corresponding Author" to be responsible for the collection and provision of the copyright assignment from each author.

2.  Plagiarism

Plagiarism takes many forms, the summitted manuscript should be free of any plagiarism, falsification, fabrications, or omission of significant material. Authors are expected to explicitly cite others’ work and ideas, even if the work or ideas are not quoted verbatim or paraphrased. This standard applies whether the previous work is published, unpublished, or electronically available.

Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. If exact sentences or paragraphs that appear in another work by the Author are included in the manuscript, the material must be appropriately cited.

Cybernomics reserves the right to evaluate issues of plagiarism and redundancy on a case-by-case basis.
