  1. Original Research: Authors must submit their original research work.
  2. Accurate Representation: Misinterpretation of research results must be avoided.

  6. Proper Acknowledgments: Proper acknowledgments and citations of other works must be given.
  7. Co-Author Consent: Authors must obtain consent from all co-authors before submitting a manuscript.
  8. Communication: The first author (or corresponding author) is responsible for informing all co-authors about any communication from the editor regarding the manuscript.
  9. Authorship Changes: Changes in authorship and order of authors are not accepted after submission.
  10. Conflict of Interest: Authors must disclose any financial gain, personal relationships, organizational ties, or other associations that may influence or be perceived to influence their work.
  11. Ethical Responsibility: Any unethical practices found in the manuscript are the sole responsibility of the authors.
  12. Copyright Agreement: A copyright agreement form will be provided once the manuscript is reviewed and provisionally accepted.
  13. Copyright Retention: Authors retain the copyright and full publishing rights without restrictions after publication. No permission is required from the journal or publisher for future use.
