The Journal of Innovation Management (JIM) is guided by COPE's various resources on issues relating to Digital Image Manipulation. 


JIM also suggests authors, editors, reviewers consult the comprehensive information/resources available publicly on the STM - Advancing trusted research website about Image Alterations & Duplication, including its 'Recommendations for handling image integrity issues' paper.


JIM does not permit the modifying of an image by enhancing, obscuring, relocating, moved, removing, or introducing specific features. However, adjustments to brightness, contrast, or colour balance are acceptable so long as they do not obscure or eliminate any original information.
