▣ Before You Begin: Ethics in Publishing
All authors are supposed to submit the manuscript containing original contents. The manuscript which has not been simultaneously submitted to, nor published in any other publication channels, solely can be accepted. If the same paper is found appearing or published in any other publication, the paper will be automatically rejected. The paper previously published in other minor publications such as conference, workshop, seminar, or proceedings can be eligible for being reviewed and published in JIIS. However, we require that the paper be substantially revised with at least 30% new contents which have never been published in the previous publications. Even though the new results from the conference paper are not required, the revised manuscript version should include expansion of key ideas, examples, explanations, figures, tables, and so on. In this case, the manuscript should indicate its previously published conference name and date as a footnote in the left bottom of the first page. We strictly prohibit plagiarism and self-plagiarism. If plagiarism is found in a paper in review or in the publication, the Research Ethics Committee of KIISS (Korea Intelligent Information Systems Society) will immediately investigate the case. The severe penalty will be imposed on the author(s) related to the plagiarism case based on the investigation.
The ethical code of conduct of KIISS can be found at the Web site of KIISS (Link#1) or downloaded (Link#2). Also, the author(s) should comply with International Standard Publication Ethics.
