  1. Peer Review Process: All submitted manuscripts undergo a rigorous peer review process, wherein expert reviewers evaluate the quality, originality, and academic significance of the research. The identities of both authors and reviewers are typically anonymized to maintain impartiality.

  2. Publication Ethics: We adhere to strict ethical guidelines, and authors are expected to submit original work that complies with academic and research integrity standards. This includes proper citation, avoidance of plagiarism, and adherence to ethical conduct in research.

  3. Transparency: The editorial process is conducted with full transparency. Authors receive feedback from reviewers, and decisions are based on the merit of the manuscript, not personal biases or affiliations.

  5. Authorship and Acknowledgment: All listed authors must have made a substantial contribution to the research. Any conflicts of interest or sources of funding should be disclosed.

  7. Timely Review: We aim to provide authors with timely feedback. Authors should be prepared to respond promptly to reviewer comments and make necessary revisions within the specified timeframe.

  8. Finality of Editorial Decisions: Editorial decisions, including acceptance, rejection, or revisions, are considered final and non-contestable. The editorial team carefully deliberates each decision and does not entertain appeals against these decisions.
