Ethics to the authors

Submitted manuscripts that are found to include citations whose primary purpose is to increase the number of citations to a given author’s work, or to articles published in a particular journal, will incur citation manipulation sanctions.


Submitted manuscripts that are found to have either fabricated or falsified experimental results, including the manipulation of images, will incur data fabrication and falsification sanctions.

All listed authors must have made a significant scientific contribution to the research in the manuscript and approved all its claims. It is important to list everyone who made a significant scientific contribution, including students and laboratory technicians.


The journal is not responsible in any way for the views expressed or claims made by the authors.


Peer-Review Policies and Indexing

All manuscripts submitted to any journal will be peer-reviewed. Each manuscript will be assigned 2 or more reviewers (members of
the Editorial Board or outside experts) with the stipulation that the review should be submitted within 3 weeks (the actual time taken
for review might vary depending upon reviewer response). Once at least two reviews are received, the Chief Editor or Editor will make
a decision. In the case of conflicting reviews, the Editor will have the prerogative on making a decision. In general, if the two reviews
are favorable, the manuscript will be accepted. However, if one or both reviews are not favorable, the manuscript will be rejected. All
journals follow Double-Blind Peer-Review process wherein the identity of the Reviewers and Authors is unknown. Authors are
encouraged to suggest reviewers for their submitted manuscript who may be contacted by us if peer-review is delayed due to slow
reviewer response.

All published manuscripts will appear in search results on Google and Yahoo within a few days of online publication. Later, they will
be covered by Google Scholar, Directory of Open Access Journals, Chemical Abstracts Service (American Chemical Society),
EBSCO, Gale, CABI, etc.
