Ethics & Guidelines to Authors
ETHICS & Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) for research publications
1. Authorship in Publication
authorship is for significant research contribution in the current content
of manuscript. It should not be for technical assistance in the
lab/instrument operation/ field work or participating in software handling/
graphical output/ word-processing the script.
communicating author should submit the postal and e-mail addresses of all
co-authors. The deletion of any author is not permitted after submission of
manuscript. In case of major revision of the paper, a coauthor can be
added with detailed explanation of the contribution.
journal publishes current research findings. Even self-plagiarism is a taboo
in the final draft of the manuscript. Too
many of references, except where the context demand, it is a subset of
Conflict of Interest: The
manuscript should include authors'
competing interests, if any. The
authors should declare conflict of financial and IPR interest.
2. Authors' Responsibilities
To participate peer review process: The
authors with Ph.D degree and at least two years of published post-doctoral
experience are eligible to participate in peer review process in their field
of experience and expertise.
Arena of research: The
manuscript should contain research results with sharable new findings
amongst scientific personnel and falling within the broad spectrum of the
journals' prime focus.
Raw data and experimental proof: The
authors are encouraged to submit experimental methods/primary data and
intermediate details as supplementary material for archives.
Research work involving animals or humans: Prior
permission from Animal Ethics Committee for experiments involving live
animals is to be submitted along with manuscript.
after the publication, the authors are obliged to bring to the notice of
editors the major mistakes in figures or formulae for subsequent Erratum
column of the journal.
3. Review Process
Review process: A
multi-level review process is adopted. After a preview by one of
editorial board members for the suitability of manuscript, it will be sent
for experts from India and abroad in the concerned field. The paper may be
accepted with revision, or rejected. After
literative modifications, the Editor-in-chief forwards for publication. The
identity of reviewers is kept confidential in the editorial office.
# If the one of editors acts as referee for a manuscript, the same pattern
of reviewing process by an external scientist is adapted.
comments are only medium of transmission to modify the script and they
should never be hostile, inflammatory or derogatory style /language.
reviewer comments should be only in the direction of improving the
readability of manuscript, adept to international scientific script style.
The manuscript is author's brain child and it should not be molded into any
referees remarks in a classical tone that 'This work is not interesting', '
Similar studies were made earlier', It is not in frame of today's
inter-disciplinary pursuit etc. are discouraged.
critical comments should be annexed with earlier literature evidence,
references to make things easier to the editors for final decision. The
comments can even be categorized as 'Authors only', 'Editors only', 'Both
for authors and editors'.
reviewer should not use information in the manuscript for the benefit of
himself/his school or organization. Also it should never be revealed
to discredit anyone in the ladder.
reviewer should not accept the manuscript, if his research group is on way
of preparation of similar content or when under editorial processing in the
same or any other journal.
reviewer should not contact the author(s) by any communication means during
the entire process.
reviewer is to be immune in refereeing process to
nationality/religion/political arena of origin of manuscript or even gender
4. Editorial Board Responsibilities
Quality of manuscript: The
factors considered are objectives of study, equipment/instruments,
computations, current results adhering to existing theories, new findings
and extension/future scope of the study.
contents are in open access for reading and printing, but the publisher of
journal has full rights on published papers. Authors should seek prior
permission to reproduce in any form.
tit-bits of e-Learning program in operation by standard organizations are
adapted to avoid fabrication of manuscripts, plagiarism and diminished
contribution of authors is for web site maintenance for the open access
5. Ethics of publication and post-publication issues
errors of typographic, transcription etc. (brought to the notice of
editor-in-chief after publication) will be published under errata in the
subsequent issue of the journal.
guidelines are prepared based on state-of-art of publication standards and
COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines. The policies of journal publication are
reviewed in bi-annual
meetings of editorial board to arrive at tit bits for authors and referees
for prospective publication process. The revisions are updated
from the immediate next issue.
