  • Data access and retention: The raw data of the research should be available even after the paper’s publication for at least ten years.
  • Originality and plagiarism: Only entirely original papers can be submitted to International STEM Education Conference. All the work or words of others should be cited or quoted appropriately. Plagiarism and fraudulent date papers will not be considered for publication by International STEM Education Conference.
  • Multiple, redundant or concurrent publication: Papers should not be published in more than one journal. Submitting the same research in different languages and the under-review manuscripts to different journals are also unethical behavior, which are unacceptable by International STEM Education Conference.
  • Sign the International STEM Education Conference Copyright form and statement that all data in article are real and authentic.
  • Authorship of the paper: All authors should have significantly contributed to the research.
