Publication Ethics Statement
The American Journal of Rising Scholar Activities subscribes to the professional publishing standards codified by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). These are best practice guidelines for authors, reviewers, and editors that attempt to ensure originality and accuracy in technical publications. All individuals associated with this journal are committed to these principles. All authors pledge to provide original work. Reviewers agree to fairly examine and provide positive feedback for article improvement, and editors work to maintain a high level of quality by checking for plagiarism, providing transparency in process, and preventing misrepresentation, falsification, and distortion of information. The Editorial Board takes these responsibilities seriously and will bar authors and reviewers who violate these ideals from further participation with our journal.
