Plagiarism, falsifying data, giving the wrong author credit, and other similar things do happen. These issues of publishing ethics are very important to Jordanian Education Journal , and our editors are trained to handle them with a "zero tolerance" policy.

Reporting standards: Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work.

Data access and retention: Authors may be asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review.

Originality and plagiarism: The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works and if the authors have used the work or words of others, that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.

Acknowledgment of Sources: Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given.

Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors. Author contribution must be added. Each author contribution must be specified. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate coauthors and no inappropriate coauthors are included in the author list and verify that all coauthors have seen and approved the final version of the manuscript and agreed to its submission for publication.
