1.Journal of Unmanned Undersea Systems academic misconduct detection methods and prevention guidelines

In addition to the editorial board's initial review and double-blind peer review, the journal also adopts academic misconduct detection software to assist the screening.Academic misconduct detection needs to be carried out twice, the first detection is carried out at the time of manuscript acceptance, and the second detection is carried out before the manuscript is published.

The detection software adopts the "Academic Misconduct Literature Detection System" (AMLC) of China Knowledge Network, which can realize the rapid detection of plagiarism and plagiarism, forgery, tampering and other academic misconduct. When the total text copy ratio of the manuscript is found to be more than 30%, the manuscript can be returned directly; when the total text copy ratio is between 20% and 30%, the manuscript will be returned directly if the important conclusion is plagiarized, and the relevant concepts will be repeated to inform the authors and require them to make modifications; when the total text copy ratio is lower than 10% and the citations have been correctly marked in the text, it will be regarded as acceptable.

Journal of Unmanned Undersea Systems follows the principle of first issue and only reports the results of original researches. Other non-academic journals (such as social media, popular science journals, or newspapers) should indicate the journal name, annual issue, page number, title, author, original website address, DOI number, and other information when forwarding our paper. To avoid taking out of context or unilaterally misinterpreting the original content, excerpts or compiled content must be approved by the author or this journal.

This journal firmly prohibits academic misconduct. During the publication process, manuscripts with evidence indicating academic misconduct will be rejected. If it is found that there is academic misconduct in a published paper, a statement revoking the publication of the paper will be published in this journal and its website, and the data of the paper in the relevant database will be deleted, the dissemination of the paper will be terminated, and adverse effects will be eliminated. At the same time, depending on the severity of the situation, the author of the article should be warned, or the author's unit should be notified, or relevant journals in the field should be notified.

In order to maintain academic ethics and ensure the academic reputation of the journal, all authors who submit to this journal are deemed to have recognized this convention and are subject to self-discipline in accordance with it.
