Authors must ensure that they have written original works. In addition, they must ensure that the manuscript has not been published elsewhere. Any work or words of other authors, contributors, or sources should be appropriately credited and referenced. Authors are also responsible for language editing before submitting the article. Authors submitting their works to the journal for publication as original articles confirm that the submitted works represent their authors’ contributions and have not been copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other works without prior citation. The same regulations apply to Internet sites and digital resources. An author automatically adheres to the license agreement before submitting the article. All articles must be submitted using online submission procedure. Submitting a paper simultaneously to more than one publication at a time is a breach of publications ethics.

They will strive to prevent any potential conflict of interests between the author and editorial personnel. Editors will also ensure that all the information related to submitted manuscripts is confidential before publishing.
