Informed Consent Policy

Data and Materials Sharing policy

Authors are encouraged to make underlying data/biological materials available upon reasonable request, where this is possible. We also encourage the deposition of data/materials to a discipline-specific, community-recognized repository where one exists, or a generalist repository if no suitable specific resource is available, in order to aid in the future replication of methods or the completion of follow-on studies. Repositories can be found via sites such as Where data have been deposited in a public repository, authors should state at the end of the abstract the dataset name, repository name and number.

Duplicate Publication/Submission Policy

All manuscripts submitted to Bangladesh J Infect Dis titles are considered for publication on the understanding that they have not been published previously elsewhere or are under consideration for publication elsewhere. The journal may, however, consider republication of a paper previously published in a language other than English, subject to prominent disclosure of the original source and with any necessary permission. Authors will be asked to certify that the manuscript represents valid work and that neither this manuscript nor one with substantially similar content under their authorship has been published or is being considered for publication elsewhere. Where specific findings from a particular study have been previously published (in Bangladesh J Infect Dis titles or elsewhere), Bangladesh J Infect Dis titles will not consider manuscripts reporting the same findings, except where the results are substantially reanalyzed, reinterpreted for a different audience, or translated into another language; the primary publication is clearly acknowledged and cited and the trial registration number (where available) of the original research is included; and the publication is clearly presented as an analysis derived from the primary publication results or marked as a translation, with appropriate permission obtained from the previous publisher and copyright laws upheld. All submitted articles will be evaluated using plagiarism detection software, which compares the submitted manuscript with full text articles from all major journal databases and the internet. The use of published or unpublished ideas, words or other intellectual property derived from other sources without attribution or permission, and representation of such as those of the author(s) is regarded as scientific misconduct and will be addressed as such.

Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism is the unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and representing them as one's own original work. It is considered dishonesty or fraud and offenders are subject to academic censure. Plagiarism can be unintentional or intentional, reproducing academic material without appropriate credit to the original authors. Similarly, self-plagiarism is the re-use of significant, identical or near identical portions of one's own work without citing the original work. This is also known as 'Recycling fraud. Worst form of plagiarism is to steal the whole article from some journal and publish it under one's own name in another journal. The Editorial Committee of BJID will blacklist any author found to be guilty of plagiarism. The name of author(s) committing plagiarism will also be disseminated to editors of other medical journals.
