Duties of Editor

Publication Decisions: It is the responsibility of the journal's editorial board to determine which of the papers submitted to the journal should be written. Such decisions must always be informed by the validation of the work in question and its relevance to researchers and readers. The editors may be directed by the policies of the editorial board of the journal and limited by the legal provisions that are then in place regarding libel, violation of copyright and plagiarism.

Review of Manuscripts: The editor must ensure that each manuscript is checked for originality by the editor initially. The editor can equally and wisely coordinate and use peer review. In the data for authors, editors should clarify their peer review processes and also show which sections of the journal are peer reviewed. By hiring people with adequate experience and excluding those with conflicts of interest, the editor should use appropriate peer reviewers for papers that are considered for publication.

Fair Play: Without regard to the race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political ideology of the authors, an editor reviews manuscripts for their intellectual content at any time.

Confidentiality: Any information concerning the manuscript submitted may not be revealed by the editor and any editorial staff to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, prospective reviewers, other editorial advisors and the publisher, as appropriate.

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest: Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript cannot, without the express written permission of the author, be used in the editor's own study.

Duties of Reviewers

Confidentiality: Reviewers must uphold the principle of confidentiality, whereby they are not allowed to discuss the manuscript with other parties without the editorial team's knowledge.

Acknowledgement of Sources: The related published work that has not been cited by the authors should be listed by reviewers. The appropriate citation should be followed by some assertion that an observation, derivation or argument has previously been published. Every noticeable resemblance or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published document that they have personal knowledge of should also be brought to the attention of the editor by a reviewer.

Standards of Objectivity: Reviewers must be objective in their decisions, underpinning any input based on scientific justification

Disclosure and Conflict of Interest: Privileged data or opinions gained through peer review must be held private and not used for personal gain. Manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest arising from competitive, collaborative, or other partnerships or ties with any of the authors, businesses, or organizations related to the papers should not be considered by reviewers.

Promptness: Any chosen referee who feels unable to review the research mentioned in a manuscript or agrees that its immediate review would be difficult should inform the editor and excuse himself from the review process.

Duties of Authors

Reporting Standards: Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.

Data Access and Retention: Authors may be asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review. They should be prepared to provide such data within a reasonable time.

Originality and Plagiarism: The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.

Multiple, Redundant or Concurrent Publication: In general, an author does not print, in more than one journal or primary publication, manuscripts detailing basically the same research. Submitting the same manuscript simultaneously to more than one journal constitutes unethical and inappropriate publishing conduct.

Acknowledgement of Sources: Proper acknowledgment of others' work should always be offered. In deciding the essence of the recorded work, writers should cite publications that were influential.

Authorship of the Paper: Authorship should be restricted to those who have made a substantial contribution to the study's creation, design, implementation, or interpretation. As co-authors, all those who have made substantial contributions should be listed. They should be remembered or identified as participants if others have engaged in some practical aspects of the research project. The corresponding author should ensure that all relevant co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included in the paper and that the final version of the paper has been viewed and accepted by all the co-authors and that they have agreed to submit it for publication.

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest: All authors should report any financial or other substantive conflict of interest in their manuscript that could be construed to impact their manuscript 's findings or interpretation. It is necessary to report all sources of financial support for the project.

Fundamental errors in published works: If an author finds in his/her own published work a serious error or inaccuracy, it is the responsibility of the author to inform the journal editor or publisher immediately and collaborate with the editor to withdraw or correct the article.

Hazards and Human or Animal Subjects: The author must explicitly describe these in the manuscript if the work includes chemicals, processes or facilities that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use.
