IJESS follows a peer reviewed model for an article to publish in this journal. For this we need to accept the standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer and the publisher.

Our ethic statements are based on the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), the World Association of Medical Editors (WAME), and the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) for Journal Editors.


In order of implementing these principals, we strongly uphold some criteria for the all levels of Stakeholders.

  • Role of Editor
  • Role of Reviewers
  • Role of Authors
  • Plagiarism and possible misconduct

Role of Editor

Decision Making: The Managing editor of the journal is responsible for deciding the articles submitted to the journal, should be published or not.The managing editor may be guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board. The managing editor may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.

Rationality: The editorial boardshould evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.

Privacy: The editorial boardshouldensure not to disclose any information's of author or reviewer's names or email addresses to each other.

Conflicts of interest: Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used by any editor's own research in any condition.

Peer review: Peer reviewers are experts chosen by editors to provide written assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of written research, with the aim of improving the article and modifying itin most appropriate and highest mode for the journal.


Role of Reviewers

Punctuality: The reviewers who feels unable to review the research or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor.

Confidentiality: 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.

Disclosure and conflict of interest: Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in a reviewer's own research in any condition. Information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage.

Reviewers are requested to go through the ICMJE and COPE guidelines for peer reviewers below:


Reviewers are requested to submit their feedback on the IJNRP peer review form below:


Role of Authors

Reporting standards: An accurate account of the implemented work and results should be presented, along with an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable. Review and professional publication articles should also be accurate and objective, and editorial 'opinion' works should be clearly identified as such.

Data access and retention: Authors are asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such data (consistent with the ALPSP-STM Statement on Data and Databases), if practicable, and should in any event be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication.

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 behavior and is unacceptable.

Acknowledgement of sources: Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

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.

Fundamental errors in published works: When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author's obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper. If the editor or the publisher learns from a third party that a published work contains a significant error, it is the obligation of the author to promptly retract or correct the paper or provide evidence to the editor of the correctness of the original paper.

Ethical considerations: Article reporting experiments on human subjects should disclose whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional or regional) and with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975, as revised in 1983.

Subject / Patient consent: Studies on patients or volunteers require ethical committee approval and informed consent, which should be documented in submitted manuscript. Do not use patients' names, initials, or hospital numbers, especially in illustrative material.


Plagiarism

Plagiarism is the use of others' published and unpublished ideas or words (or other intellectual property) without attribution or permission, and presenting them as new and original rather than derived from an existing source. This applies whether the ideas or words are taken from abstracts, research grant applications, Institutional Review Board applications, or unpublished or published manuscripts in any publication format (print or electronic).

Self-plagiarism: The author's copying of her or his own previously published material: duplicate publication or "self--? plagiarism." If an author has published an article in Journal A, she or he may not send the same article with a few minor adjustments to Journal B. Nor may she or he take verbatim portions of the first article without quotation marks for use in a second article. Each publication should contain fresh writing, even if there is nothing new to report on the topic.

Inadequate acknowledgement of data or ideas: Most writers rely on the ideas and data of others, but doing so without naming the source is a form of plagiarism.

Copyright infringement: Occurs when an author copies (with or without attribution) significant portions of a published work, including tables and figures, without having obtained the permission of the person or publisher holding the copyright. When this plagiarized "writing" is published, the new publisher is guilty of violating the copyright held by the original publisher.

Policy for misconduct:

IJNRP policies towards plagiarism are.

  • When plagiarism is detected, by either reviewers or editors, before or after acceptance, during editing, or at any time before publication, IJESS editor office will alert the author, asking her or him to rewrite or quote exactly and to cite the original source.
  • If the plagiarism is extensive ? the article may be rejected and the author's institute may be notified about the violation.
  • If plagiarism is detected after publication, the editors will notify readers of the infraction through an editor's note in the journal.
  • In any condition if plagiarism found and author(s) failed to provide a suitable explanation, the IJNRP Plagiarism Committee can take further action.

Is there any articles charge for Authors?

IJESS is now charging an article processing fee of 3000 Rupees (Indian authors), US$ 70 (IAPES foreign members) and US$ 80 (foreign authors).

What are authors paying for?

Costs are involved for the publication process, digital typing and copy-editing; the author is asked to pay an article-processing charge.

When do I need to pay Article Processing Charges?

Article processing charges will have to be paid after the manuscript has been peer reviewed and accepted for publication. The corresponding author will be responsible for arranging the payments.

Will there be additional charges, especially if an article contains colour images?

IJNRP is an open-access online Journal, so there are no extra charges for the Colour Images.

What will happen if the authors do not submit the manuscript after the peer review process has been completed?

It is unethical not to submit the final version of the manuscript to IJESS after a series of reviews and major copy editing process. Such process demands a lot of time and effort from the experts. IJESS tends to publish the name and titles of the manuscript in such condition.
