About the Book

An edited book under the title “A Strategic Planning on Research and Publication Ethics” a vision for healthier research powered by valuable research and publication ethics is going to be published by Desh Bhagat University. The edited book aims to develop knowledge about the research and publication of Ethics. 

Research and publication ethics are crucial not only for performing research but also for publishing it. It is one of the most important pillars of scientific credibility and honesty. Fair practices must be implemented by academics, universities/institutions, and publications. 

The book shall give graduate students and early-stage researchers with concise yet comprehensive resources. We’ve found some common areas where researchers have doubts and difficulties. We’ve discussed how to assign authorship, how to avoid image alteration and plagiarism, how to successfully manage research data, and how to identify conflicts of interest,  among other issues. This book will provide you with plenty of advice on how to deal with any circumstance like this. 

Scholars in the modern era are frequently confronted with regulations/guidelines developed for academics by various statutory bodies/institutions. It is up to the students to deal with it and maintain an optimal learning speed. The book’s concept evolved in response to the scholar’s queries about the  Ph.D. process. As a result, this book took shape while keeping all of the scholars’ quarries/ideas in mind. 

The book provides a quick review of research methods and statistical approaches, as well as practical thumb rules and recommendations.
