Authors should present an objective discussion of the significance of their research work as well as sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Authors also must ensure that their work is entirely original, and therefore wherever and whenever the work and/or words of others are used, all instances must be appropriately acknowledged. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Authors should not submit articles describing essentially the same research to more than one journal. The corresponding author should ensure that there is a full consensus of all co-authors in approving the final version of the paper and its submission for publication. The author(s) should inquire with the original copyright holder (usually the original publisher or authors), whether or not this material can be re-used.

Whenever ethical complaints are filed concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper, editors must take reasonable action to ensure that proper compliance to ethical standards is restored. Submitted information and ideas must be kept confidential and cannot be used for personal advantage or gain. Editors should pass the final acceptance only after discussion with the other managing and co-editors and reviewers based on the compliance, originality and quality of the article. It is the duty of editors to correct the articles if demand comes from authors. If needed, other appropriate action should be taken at the time of processing of the article. Editor should address and take sufficient steps about ethical complaints to the published data and/or methodologies. Further communications should be made to the corresponding authors.

Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
