All rights reserved. This publication or parts thereof may not be reproduced in any form without permission of the publisher.

Representing research results falsely harm the journal's reputation, the professionalism of scientific writing, and eventually the field of science as a whole. Therefore, authors should avoid doing so.

Observing the following guidelines for good scientific practice can aid in preserving the integrity of the study and its presentation:

It is not advisable to submit the manuscript to multiple journals at the same time for review.

The work that has been submitted must be unique and cannot have been published in any form or language, either partially or fully, elsewhere, unless it is an extension of previously published work. To allay worries about text recycling, or "self-plagiarism," kindly provide transparency regarding the repurposing of content.

To maximize the number of submissions, a single study shouldn't be divided into multiple sections and submitted to multiple journals at once, or "slicing/publishing."

The outcomes ought to be communicated in an unbiased, truthful manner, devoid of any fabrication, falsification, or improper manipulation of data, including manipulation based on images.

Authors should adhere to discipline-specific rules for acquiring, selecting and processing data.

There is "plagiarism" involved when information, ideas, or texts from other sources are presented as the author's.

Permissions must be secured for copyrighted material, and proper acknowledgments to other works must be given (this includes material that is summarized, paraphrased, and/or closely copied—almost verbatim).

The journal might check for plagiarism using software.

When using software, surveys, questionnaires, and scales in their research, authors should confirm that they have the necessary authorizations (if applicable).

Untrue claims about an entity—which can be a single person or a business—as well as descriptions of their conduct or deeds that might be interpreted as accusations or personal assaults against that person should be avoided by authors.


Authors are strongly advised to ensure the author group, the Corresponding Author, and the order of authors are all correct at submission. Adding and/or deleting authors during the revision stages is generally not permitted, but in some cases may be warranted. Reasons for changes in authorship should be explained in detail.

Please note that changes to authorship cannot be made after acceptance of a manuscript.

Once authors find a significant error or inaccuracy in their published article, they have a duty to correct it.

Please get in touch with the journal and let them know how the error is affecting the article.
Depending on the type of error, a determination about how to fix the literature will be made. This could be an apologies or retractions. It should be clear from the retraction note which sections of the article are affected by the mistake.
