Moreover, the journal is a associate of Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) which outlines the necessary principles that needs to be adhered by subscribers on dealing with different acts of transgression. Hence, the committee is tasked to guarantee integrity of research.

It is important for authors to refrain from misrepresenting research results that may be damaging to the journal, professional scientific community and the entire research community. Below are good science laws that need to be adhered to:

Authors need to submit their manuscript to more than one publishing journal in order to get favourable considerations.

Manuscript need to have original works without any other form of publication anywhere wither in any form or language. The only exception is if the new paper is an extension of the preceding work. In addition, it is important to present precision on any re-used material to avoid any worry raised on self-plagiarism.

To enhance the number of submissions a study can be split into several parts and ensure submissions are done to diverse journals or one periodical over time also referred as publishing’.

Use of secondary or concurrent publication can be reasonable provided all conditions are met. For instance, translation or manuscript desired for different groups of readers.

All results need to be honest, offered clearly and with no distortion or unfortunate data manipulation. It is paramount for authors to ensure they adhere to all discipline-specific rules in selection nd processing of data.

If data or theories are presented within the authors work should not be used. It is integral to make proper acknowledgement to different works including closely copied materials, summarized, quotation marks. Hence the need to attain needed permissions to use copyright materials.

Authors are counselled to guarantee author groups, matching author, and order of authors are in accurate submissions. It is not acceptable to make either addition or delete of authors when undertaking a revision. In case of any alteration it is important to make detailed explanations. But changes to authorship cannot be made once the manuscript has been accepted. Stipulated guidelines and authors need to ensure third parties such as moral rights and copyrights are respected. Authors need to be ready to share any applicable credentials or data to make any verification on validity of resulted shared. This may be presented in form of samples, raw data or records. But responsive information is excluded. In case of any misbehaviour or suspicious behaviour investigation needs to be done under COPE guideline. If after investigation the concerns are validated respective authors will be contacted with provided e-mail and allowed a chance to tackle the issues. Based on scenario the following measures may be implemented but not partial.

For manuscript under deliberation it could be return to the author or rejected.
