Author Guidelines

Duties and Responsibilities of Authors:

  • Authors should provide an accurate description of the work done in their original research papers, along with an objective discussion of its significance. The underlying data should be accurately represented in the paper. Sufficient details and references should be included in the paper to allow others to replicate the work. Misleading or inaccurate statements about knowledge are considered unethical and unacceptable behavior.
  • Authors may be asked to provide primary data for their study along with the paper for review, and they should be prepared to make the data available to readers.
  • Authors should ensure the accessibility of this data to other qualified professionals for at least ten years after publication (preferably through an institutional or subject repository or another data center), provided that the confidentiality of participants is protected.
  • Authors should only present entirely original works and properly cite or quote the works and/or words of others. They should also acknowledge the works that have influenced the nature of the work.
  • Submitting the same research paper to more than one journal is considered unethical and unacceptable publication behavior.
