Any manuscript accepted for review should be treated as a confidential document. Manuscripts should not be disseminated or discussed with others unless authorized by the editor.

Objectivity Standards

The review should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism from the author is inappropriate to convey. Reviewers should state their views clearly with supporting arguments.

The reviewer must also declare to the editor if there are similarities.

Originality and Plagiarism

Multiple, Redundant and Concurrent Publication

An author should not publish a manuscript outlining the essence of the same research in more than one journal or major publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal simultaneously is unethical and unacceptable publishing behavior. Proper acknowledgement of the work of others should always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the work they are reporting.
