Our ethical practice on the research work submitted:
The aim of implementing ethics in journals is to ensure that the article submitted is original, contains true information, and has zero errors. The article is published after a lengthy process in which we ensure that every possible area of the article is effectively targeted and cross-checked with our metrics standards.

Our Malpractice statement ethics is mainly based on the Code of Conduct and Best-Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors. The main role of editors is to decide what type of research papers are to be accepted according to the journal standards. The editor will evaluate the content of the article without regard to the author’s race, origin, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political background. The decision is based on the research paper’s scope of interest, importance, originality, and validity with respect to the content fact. Copyright infringement and plagiarism should be taken into account while establishing the decision about the journal publication. The editorial staff by any means should not disclose the data submitted by authors by any means to anybody other than the author himself, reviewers, peers, and other editorial advisers as appropriate. He is also held responsible for unpublished content that is submitted by the researcher and should not be used by the editors for other upcoming authors or researchers without the original author’s explicit consent. Our peer panel of experts helps the editors in their editorial process easier in bringing out good decisions and assisting the authors in improving their research paperwork.
When it comes to article eligibility, any random referee who feels that the manuscript submitted by the author is unqualified needs to notify the peer review panel or the editorial team and the article received should not be publicly available in order to maintain its confidentiality. They must not be disclosed in any manner except at the discretion of the author or editors only. The review should be carried out accordingly and see that the target journal requirements are met. The review panel should give appropriate answers to each decision they make with clear explanations. The peers should identify case-by-case scenarios in which the article submitted has not been cited anywhere else and is unplagiarized. They should also check for the arguments derived from other probable reference sources in the right usage and prove that these arguments are established by the respective source.
Our peers will notify the editorial team if any substantial similarities may occur during their analysis of the submitted research article or have been cited in any other published articles so far. Our peer reviewers will discuss with the editor any similarities that may exist between manuscripts under process and any other published paper that has already been indexed in international journal databases like SCOPUS, Google Scholar, etc. Data obtained from the researchers should be kept confidential and should not be used for personal purposes. Conflicts of interest due to vulnerable manuscripts should be avoided by all means necessary from competitive, collaborative, and other relationships from other potential sources that are connected with the material content.
Authors should always present their original research article of the research that they carried out as well as the scope and significance must be authentic and true in all aspects. The submitted paper should contain sufficient detail and a reference list mentioned in detail to make the author’s research work more recognizable. Fraudulent practices knowingly inaccurate statements and other unethical behavior are prohibited. Authors could be asked to give other details related to their research study for editorial review. In the event of making the author’s article open-access after publication for at least ten years, provided that the confidentiality and rights of the authors are protected. Authors will submit only original work and will get appropriate cite scores about their work in which the articles that have been influential with their appreciable cite score after the promotion of the article. The nature of the work contained in the report established by the author should be well-cited and influenced. Papers describing that it is a similar research should not be published in another journal. All irrelevant information on research data should be removed from the article content so that the topics covered are to the subject and not out of the context. The submitted paper entering into more than one journal constitutes unethical publishing practice and is unacceptable. Manuscripts already published into the indexed journal listing and copyrighted material of other publications cannot be accepted.
Manuscripts under review by our journal should not be resubmitted. However, after submission, the authors have the rights to the published material. We make the authors’ articles open-access which will enable other upcoming authors to copy or distribute the research work established by them publicly. Authorship is significant for those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, and interpretation of ideas in the research work that they have done. All the co-authors should be enlisted and the corresponding authors ensure that all the contributing co-authors are mentioned in the author’s list. The corresponding author is responsible for verifying that co-authors have their approval about the final version of the paper and have agreed to our publication policies. All authors and co-authors should include a written statement disclosing their funding contributions and other substantive conflicts of interest to influence the results of their manuscript. All sources of financial details for the project should be disclosed. When an author discovers a significant error in his presentation work, it is the author’s responsibility to promptly notify the journal editor about the inaccuracy and to cooperate with the editorial team to retract or make corrections to the paper submitted in a form of an erratum.
