ETHICAL GUIDELINES

PREAMBLE

Construction in the 21st Century International Conferences (CITC) commits itself to promote the highest standard of professional ethical norms and values for all its participants (practitioners, academics and students).


AUTHORSHIP

All participating authors of CITC submit a paper on the understanding that the manuscript has been read and approved by all authors and that all authors agree to the submission of the manuscript to this journal. Authors submitting a paper also do so maintaining they are the original creators of the work. 


ETHICAL STANDARDS

The Construction in the 21st Century International Conference (CITC) maintains a rigorous standard for article submissions, emphasizing research quality and integrity. Articles undergo double-blind peer review to ensure excellence while preserving author anonymity. An international committee of experts evaluates full papers based on quality, relevance, and originality. CITC operates with impartiality and no conflict of interest in research topics. The organization is committed to preventing and addressing research misconduct, with guidelines for retracting or correcting articles as necessary. CITC encourages transparency and accountability, including the publication of corrections, clarifications, retractions, and apologies when warranted.

PUBLICATION ETHICS AND
PUBLICATION MALPRACTICE STATEMENTS

Publication malpractice is an unfortunate occurrence in the world of scholarly literature. It happens in all subject areas and in all jurisdictions, and few journals or books are immune. The prevention of publication malpractice is the responsibility of every author, editor, reviewer, publisher, and institution.

Scopus requires that every journal we index has clear and publicly available statements of publication ethics and publication malpractice. Scopus will hold each publisher listed in the database accountable for the performance and compliance with these policies.

 

Scopus does not mandate any specific wording of publication ethics and publication malpractice statements, but notes that:

  • Major publishers already publish comprehensive statements of compliance on their websites. See Elsevier for an example.

  • A number of industry organizations publish comprehensive guidelines and advice that can be readily adopted by any publisher. Such notable organizations include:

  • Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)

  • World Association of Medical Editors (WAME)

  • International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE)

  • Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT)

  • Guidelines for what a Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement should adhere to (PEMS)
