We encourage authors to submit the original work with appropriate results and citations by adhering to the best publication practices stated by scholarly organizations - COPE, WAME, DOAJ

Under few conditions, authors should be ready to submit original raw data along with the manuscript for the review process without any concert. Same research content or information should not be published in more than one journal or publishing house. 

Authors are responsible for the content or information in the manuscript. The corresponding author needs to include all coauthors and acknowledgment with the written consent. Authors need to disclose any conflict of interest that interprets the results or content in the manuscript. All the resources and sources of financial grant for the research work need to disclose.


The author's research involved chemical procedures, hazards are to be mentioned in the manuscript. Any animal or human experiments should be under the guidelines and approval of appropriate committees. The rights of the human participants must always be considered along with a consent letter.


All Authors cooperate for speedy publishing process like peer review process and submit the required data, clarifications, ethics approval proofs, copyright permission, participant or patient consent. 

If required based on peer review comments author needs to revise the manuscript by considering the review comments for maintaining the quality of the manuscript. 

Parts of the Manuscript

The manuscript should be submitted in separate files: main text file; figures.


Main Text File

The text file should be presented in the following order:

i. A short informative title containing the major key words. The title should not contain abbreviations
ii. A short running title of less than 50 characters;
iii. The full names of the authors;
iv. The author's institutional affiliations where the work was conducted, with a footnote for the author’s present address if different from where the work was conducted;
v. Acknowledgments;
vi. Abstract and keywords;
vii. Main text;
viii. References;
ix. Tables (each table complete with title and footnotes);
x. Figure legends;
xi. Appendices (if relevant).

Figures and supporting information should be supplied as separate files.


Acknowledgments

Contributions from anyone who does not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed, with permission from the contributor, in an Acknowledgments section. Financial and material support should also be mentioned. 


Conflict of Interest Statement

Authors will be asked to provide a conflict of interest statement during the submission process. 

Article Processing charge

There are no submission charges for this journal. However, upon acceptance, the author will be charged 250 USD for one article, and the thesis will be charged 850 USD.

Article promotion:

The publisher will promote the Individual article in different ways. Through mail, social media, and others. We encourage authors to promote their articles by sharing with their peers, in conferences, social media accounts, etc.

Peer review:

A Peer-review system is the means to assess the quality of the article and provides the platform for sharing the opinion and its value. Therefore, every manuscript that the journal receives will undergo a single-blind peer-review process, which means we will assign the article to 3-5 independent reviewers from the same research interest. In this method, the reviewers will know the authors, but the reviewers’ reports will be shared with the authors. The decision of the editor will be final.
