Journal Policy

The research published in the journal is covered by a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License. This license permits various actions, including sharing, remixing, and building upon the material for any purpose.

Publishing Policies

  • The journal upholds widely recognized publishing ethics.
  • The acceptance or rejection of research for publication hinges on evaluations provided by referees and editors. These assessments consider the scientific merit, adherence to research ethics, and the novelty of the work.
  • The researcher will receive an acceptance for publication once the research attains final approval. This acceptance will include details such as the acceptance date, publication date, and the issue number in which the research will appear.
  • Research submitted for publication is subject to initial examination by editors to determine its suitability to the journal’s specialty, its policy, and the soundness of scientific research procedures, and then indicate its eligibility for scientific evaluation.
  • The editorial board may decline to accept the entire research or ask the researcher to modify it under the journal’s policy before sending it to the referees.
  • The referees are selected by the editor-in-chief, their deputy, the managing editor, or the specialized editor. The arbitration process is double-blind and anonymous.
  • The referees meticulously evaluate the research and provide a comprehensive report. Based on the nature of the issues identified, the research may be accepted with significant or minor adjustments, or it could face rejection. In cases where there’s a discrepancy between the referees’ opinions, a third arbitrator is consulted for further assessment.
  • The researcher is committed to making the recommended amendments in full within twenty days from the date of providing him with the referees’ reports.
  • When referees deem it necessary to assess the researcher’s adherence to their requests, the research is referred back to them. If the recommendation involves minor modifications, the editorial department diligently follows up on the evaluation. After a final verification, the researcher receives an acceptance letter for publication.
  • After ensuring that the research is ready in its final form, it is sent for linguistic and technical review, and then referred to final production.

Plagiarism Policy:

Every research undergoes thorough scrutiny using various methods to detect plagiarism before it is submitted for scientific evaluation. The researcher undertakes in writing to bear legal and ethical responsibility in the event of plagiarism or taking from the efforts of other researchers without mentioning it.

Dealing with Research Misconduct:

The journal strictly prohibits publishing research that involves research misconduct, plagiarism, citation manipulation, and falsification or fabrication of data.

Arbitration Policy:

The journal diligently receives and evaluates research submissions to ascertain their integrity and alignment with scientific and technical norms. If a submission adheres to these standards, it proceeds to arbitration. However, if any defects are identified, the research is either returned to the researchers for revision or rejected outright. In cases of discrepancy, arbitrators weigh in to assess the extent of its integrity.  Detailed reports inform the journal’s management, guiding their decision on whether to publish the research.

When a research manuscript receives approval from reviewers, the researcher is issued a letter of acceptance, endorsed by the editor-in-chief. If the research is accepted with modifications, it is returned to the researcher for revision. Once the necessary adjustments are made, the manuscript is reevaluated by the reviewers to assess the researcher’s commitment to the requested changes. In cases where arbitrators hold conflicting opinions, a specialized third arbitrator of the highest rank is consulted to weigh in on the decision.

The arbitration process is double confidential, so that the two arbitrators do not know who the researcher is, nor does the researcher know who the arbitrators are, and the journal deals with the arbitrators’ reports, their data, and the researcher’s data in complete confidentiality. The referees are officially assigned to review the research, and they respond within 20 days from the date of assignment and receipt of the research.
