Plagiarism

The peer-review process is at the heart of scientific publishing. As part of Journal commitment to protecting the integrity of the scholarly record, Journal feels a strong obligation to support the scientific community in all aspects of research and publishing ethics. We invest in many resources to help educate researchers on how to avoid ethical issues, to detect any issues during the editorial process, to support editors in handling publishing ethics allegations and, if necessary, to correct the scholarly record.

Note:  The plagiarism should be less than 10%. If it is exceeded above 10% the articles will be rejected in initial screening.  

 

Peer review process

Initially, the manuscript will be checked for the journal format and other necessary details as per author guidelines. The manuscript passes this initial step will be moved to the editor-in-chief for language and technical screening as per journal scope.  Once the manuscript satisfies the aim and scope of the journal will be sent to the reviewer for peer-review process. If it is not satisfied with the journal scope and aim of the journal then it is directly rejected by the editor without any further considerations. In the peer review process, the manuscript will be sent to two reviewers (Experts in particular subject areas) for evaluating the quality of the manuscript. Based on the reviewer’s comments, the editor will be given the following decision such as Accepted, Major revision, Minor revision, Rejected. If the manuscript is rejected by the reviewer then it is directly rejected without any further considerations. If the revise decision is given, the author should be asked to revise the manuscript according to reviewer comments. After receiving the revised version, the manuscript should be allotted to reviewers for final evaluation. Based on the reviewer’s second level of comments, the manuscript should be accepted or rejected by the editor. If the second revision is required then the manuscript should be sent back to the authors. If the manuscript is accepted then it will be moved to the production process. 

 

Copyright

After acceptance, authors will be asked to submit a completed copyright agreement form. The copyright form will be sent to the corresponding author for necessary action. It should be signed by all the authors after checking. The corresponding author is answerable for securing any permissions needed for the reuse of copyrighted materials incorporated in the manuscript. Authors retain the copyright of their manuscripts, and all Open Access articles are disseminated under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License (CC-BY), which licenses unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided that the original work is appropriately cited. The use of general descriptive names, trade names, trademarks, and so forth in this publication, even if not specifically identified, does not imply that these names are not protected by the relevant laws and regulations.

 

Funding statement

All examination articles ought to have a subsidizing affirmation articulation remembered for the original copy as a sentence under a different heading named 'Financing' straightforwardly after your Acknowledgments and Declaration of Conflicting Interests, if material, and preceding any Notes and your References. The subsidizing organization ought to be worked out in full, followed by the grant number in square brackets, see following sample (the text in bold is mandatory, unless specified otherwise by the journal):

The author(s) revealed receipt of the following financial provision for the research, authorship, and/or publication of this article: This work was supported by the Department of Science and Technology (DST) [grant number xxx]

Declaration of competing interest statement

All research manuscripts must have a Declaration of competing interest statement comprised in the manuscript in the system of a verdict underneath a distinct heading. For example author should write the statement like this;

  • The authors state that they have no known competing financial interests or individual associations that could have looked to influence the work described in this article.

  • This investigation is sponsored by [company X] and may lead to the development of products which may be allowed to [company Y], in which I have a commercial and/or monetary interest. I have exposed those benefits fully to JAMS, and have in place an allowed tactic for management any conceivable conflicts climbing from this preparation.

 

Ethics in publishing

The publication of a manuscript in a peer-reviewed journal is a vital construction block in the growth of an intelligible and appreciated network of data. It is a straight replication of the excellence of the effort of the writers and the organizations that care them. Peer-reviewed articles care and exemplify the technical process. It is therefore significant to approve upon morals of anticipated ethical behaviour for all festivities complicated in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society of society-owned or sponsored journals.

 

Ethical Responsibilities of Authors

This journal is dedicated to perpetuation the honesty of the scientific record. As a fellow of the Board on Publication Ethics (COPE) the journal will track the COPE guidelines on how to deal with possible acts of misconduct.

Authors should catchphrase from perverting research results which could harm the faith in the journal and eventually the whole scientific endeavour. Preserving honesty of the study and its exhibition can be attained by following the rubrics of good scientific repetition, which comprises

  • The document has not been submitted to more than one journal for instantaneous deliberation.

  • The manuscript has not been published previously (partly or in full), if the new work anxieties a development of preceding work (please deliver transparency on the re-use of material to evade the clue of text-recycling (“self-plagiarism”)).

  • A single investigation is not divided up into numerous parts to upsurge the quantity of submissions and acquiesced to various journals or to one journal over time.

  • No data have been made-up or deployed (including images) to support your deductions

  • No data, text, or theories by others are obtainable as if they were the authors own (“plagiarism”). Correct salutations to other works should be given (this comprises material that is carefully copied (near verbatim), abridged and/or rephrased), quotation marks are used for precise copying of material, and authorizations are tenable for material that is copyrighted.

Important note: the journal may use software to screen for plagiarism.

  • Agreement to submit has been acknowledged from all co-authors and answerable authorities at the institute/organization where the study has carried out earlier the study is submitted.

  • Authors whose names look on the proposal have donated adequately to the scientific work and therefore share cooperative accountability for the results.

In addition:

  • Changes of authorship or in the order of authors are not recognized after acceptance of an article.

  • Requirements to add or delete authors at revision stage or after publication is a thoughtful matter, and may be painstaking only after receiving of written endorsement from all writers and thorough clarification about the role/deletion of the new/deleted author. The judgement on compliant the change rests with the Editor-in-Chief of the journal.

  • Upon appeal authors should be equipped to send appropriate certification or data in order to confirm the rationality of the results. This could be in the method of raw data, records, samples etc

If there is a misgiving of misbehaviour, the journal will carry out an examination following the COPE guidelines. If, after examination, the claim appears to raise lawful concerns, the suspect author will be communicated and given an chance to discourse the issue. If misbehaviour has been confirmed, this may result in the Editor-in-Chief’s implementation of the following actions, including, but not limited to:

  • If the article is still under contemplation, it may be rejected and reverted to the author.

  • If the article has already been available online, contingent on the nature and harshness of the breach, either an erratum will be located with the article or in severe cases complete withdrawal of the manuscript will occur. The aim must be given in the published erratum or withdrawal note.

  • The author’s institution may be informed.

After Acceptance

Proofing Procedure:

            After acceptance of the manuscript, the corresponding author will receive an acceptance email from the chief editor of the journal along with a request to submit a signed declaration and copyright transfer form. Once the signed copyright form is received by the editorial office, the production process will be initiated and the corresponding author will receive a proof by PDF. Proofreading is solely your responsibility

The proof is to be checked carefully for the following

  • Author(s) name, sequence, affiliation details, and corresponding author's contact information (email address, contact number, and fax).

  • Correctness of the text, citation of all figures and tables.

  • Confirm that all the references cited are listed under references.

  • Funding and conflict of interests, if any should be included at the end.

Prompt retuning of the proofs will ensure timely publishing of your manuscript.

Publication and Printed version

            The updated final version of your manuscript will be published online along with the journal issue. If authors need a printed version of a particular paper or issue or entire volume they have to pay accordingly. Please mention the number of copies required and contact address with phone number through email.
