    Publication ethics and malpractice statement
    Journal of Fiber Bioengineering and Informatics (JFBI) is committed to upholding the highest standards of publication ethics and takes all possible measures against publication malpractice. Authors who submit papers to JFBI attest that their work is original and unpublished, and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. In addition, authors confirm that their paper is their own; that it has not been copied or plagiarized, in whole or in part, from other works; and that they have disclosed actual or potential conflicts of interest with their work or partial benefits associated with it. 


    Papers submitted must be original and unpublished, and should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. In general, if a paper is accepted for publication, authority to publish elsewhere will not be refused, provided an appropriate acknowledgment is made. It's a condition of publication that authors assign copyright to Textile Bioengineering and Informatics Society. Also, authors must warrant that their paper doesn't constitute an infringement of an existing copyright and that they'll indemnify the publisher should there be any breach of such warranty. Before submission, authors must get permission from copyright holders to reproduce any copyright material that's to be included in the paper. A copy of this permission should be sent to the publisher. Adequate acknowledgment must also be made in the paper.
