Guidelines for Authors
1. Authors must ensure that the research paper they submit is unique and has not been published elsewhere under the same or similar title.
2. Authors must ensure that all authors are accurately represented and that clear references to the work of others are provided.
3. Research submissions with more than one author must include the name and contact information for a designated corresponding author. The corresponding author will be responsible for all timely communication with the editor and publisher regarding the paper's originality and other ethical concerns, both before and after publication. The publisher and editor will hold such a designated corresponding author accountable for any factual misrepresentation or misconduct discovered before or after publication. All co-authors of a paper are expected to maintain open lines of communication with one another.
4. It is the authors' responsibility to disclose the source of all data and third-party material used. This includes any material previously used by the authors in both published and unpublished work.
5. Any use of third-party material must be done with the written permission of the respective copyright holders. The permission documents should be submitted with the research work for publication, and the publisher or editor should not be held liable for the improper use of copyrighted material in the research work at any stage. In the event that data used in a study is found to be false, insufficient, or misrepresented, the authors should cooperate if an investigation is initiated by the editor or publisher. When the editor or publisher requests a source of data, proof of authorship, or any other such detail, authors are expected to comply.
6. Any potential conflict of interest should be declared openly. If the research work submitted for publication will benefit a company, organisation, or service in which any of the authors is involved, a disclosure should be included.
7. When an ethical or technical issue with a published research work is discovered, the authors should be prepared to provide corrigenda in a timely manner, as well as cooperate with the editor and publisher in the case of the publication of an errata or retraction of the published research work.
