Manuscript Withdrawal
Authors are not allowed to recall submitted manuscripts, as such withdrawals are a waste of valuable resources that editors and referees spend a great deal of time processing submitted manuscripts, and the work invested by the publisher.

If the author still requests a withdrawal of the manuscript while the manuscript is still in the peer-review process, the author will be penalized by paying $35 per manuscript, as a withdrawal penalty to the publisher. However, it is unethical to withdraw a manuscript submitted from one journal if it is received by another.

Withdrawal of manuscripts after the manuscript is accepted for publication, the author will be punished by paying US $ 100 per manuscript. Manuscript withdrawal is only permitted after the withdrawal penalty has been paid in full to the Publisher. If the author does not agree to pay the fine, the author and his affiliates will be blacklisted for publication in this journal. In fact, his previously published articles will be removed from our online system.

Revised Article

 If a request for revision of an article submitted to a scientific and health journal is not revised by the author no later than 2 weeks from the date the revision request was sent by the editor, then the article is considered self-admitted for publication in a scientific and health journal and will be subject to a journal withdrawal fee.

  • Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage.
  • Editors should recuse themselves (i.e. should ask a co-editor, associate editor or other member of the editorial board instead to review and consider) from considering manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or (possibly) institutions connected to the papers.

Involvement and cooperation in investigations

An editor should take reasonably responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper, in conjunction with the publisher (or society). Such measures will generally include contacting the author of the manuscript or paper and giving due consideration of the respective complaint or claims made, but may also include further communications to the relevant institutions and research bodies, and if the complaint is upheld, the publication of a correction, retraction, expression of concern, or other note, as may be relevant. Every reported act of unethical publishing behaviour must be looked into, even if it is discovered years after publication.

Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except as authorized by the editor.

Standards of Objectivity

Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

Acknowledgement of Sources

Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should also call to the editor's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.

Reporting standards

Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance.

Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical conduct and are unacceptable.

Originality and Plagiarism

The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.

Multiple, Redundant or Concurrent Publication

An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing conduct and is unacceptable.

Authorship of the Paper

Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be acknowledged or listed as contributors. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included on the paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.

Hazards and Human or Animal Subjects
