Duties and Responsibilities of Authors: Authors are required to submit the original research work that has not been published elsewhere. It is expected that the authors have made a significant contribution to the research area and the paper must contain sufficient details about the literature and methodology.

Peer Review Policy: The editors first evaluate all manuscripts submitted to the journal. At this stage, an exceptional manuscript to be accepted and rejected may have issues with originality, have a serious scientific limitation, have poor grammar or English language, or are outside the aims and scope of the journal. Those who meet the minimum criteria are passed on to experts for review. Reviewers are asked to evaluate the manuscript based on originality, methodological soundness, presentation of results and concluding, appropriate referencing of previous works and ethical aspects of research. Language correction or correcting manuscripts is not part of the peer-review process. A final decision to accept or reject the manuscript will be sent to the author along with any recommendations made by the reviewers.
Publication Ethics: Manuscripts submitted to the journal are evaluated entirely based on their scientific contents. There are no publication charges for publication in the journal.
