    Publication Ethics
     

    Grassroots Institute is committed to maintaining high standards through a rigorous peer-review together with strict ethical policies. Any infringements of professional ethical codes, such as plagiarism, fraudulent use of data, bogus claims of authorship, should be taken very seriously.

    An Initial Plagiarism Check is carried out for every manuscript submitted to Grassroots Journal of Natural Resources. Grassroots Institute is a member of CrossCheck and has added all its papers to the CrossCheck database. In this way, also other publishers can compare their manuscripts with Grassroots Institute’ papers. CrossCheck is used through the web-based iThenticate system by uploading a document and running a similarity check against the CrossCheck database and the Internet. The check provides a "Similarity Index" which is the percentage of the manuscript matching other sources. iThenticate does not determine whether a manuscript contains plagiarism. Therefore, manuscripts with a high "Similarity Index" are examined if the other matching sources have been properly cited.

    Grassroots Institute follows the Code of Conduct of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).  

    The submitted manuscript should not have been previously published in any form and must not be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.
