Publication Ethics

1.The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society of society-owned or sponsored journals.

2.During the submission, authors need to state that their work has not been submitted elsewhere, instances (if any) & conflicts need to be mentioned and plagiarism must be strictly cross checked. For Animal/Human models, ethical clearance copy needs to be submitted.

3.Any submission that has partially /completely plagiarized content will be rejected immediately.

4.If the author fails to reproduce citation for any previous work, it will be considered as technical plagiarism and the paper might be rejected immediately.

5.The author(s) should hold responsibility in providing conflicts if any to avoid further conflicts.

6.The work involving animal models and human volunteers need to submit the necessary statements.

7.Author needs to mention consents and instances if any to avoid further obligations. Clear statement with written signature must be submitted by the author while submitting his/her work.
