 Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism is an act of using thoughts of another author without authorization and the representation of that author's work as one's own, without crediting the original author. Whether intentional or unintentional, plagiarism is recognized as a serious academic offence. All manuscripts received are scanned for plagiarism. If potential plagiarism is detected, authors will be contacted for clarification. The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others, it is necessary to indicate the source of the information within your paper using an internal citation.

This journal aims to publish original high-quality research work.

Guidelines for Peer Reviewers

Peer review in all its forms plays an important role in ensuring the integrity of the scholarly record. The process depends to a large extent on trust, and requires that everyone involved behaves responsibly and ethically. Peer reviewers play a central and critical part in the peer-review process, but too often come to the role without any guidance and unaware of their ethical obligations. Committee on Publication Ethics has produced some guidelines which set out the basic principles and standards to which all peer reviewers should adhere during the peer-review process in research publication. The aim has been to make them generic so that they can be applied across disciplines.
