Copyrights of all articles published in journal are retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the journal. The journal/publisher is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work.
All articles are published under the Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) license.
Authors have the rights to reuse, republish, archive, and distribute their own articles after publication, and undertake to permit others to distribute, remix, adapt, and build upon this work non-commercially provided the original work is properly cited. The full guidance that applies to the CC-BY license can be found at http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/
We follow Sherpa/Romeo‘s green archiving policy. Both pre-print and post-print or publisher’s version/PDF can be archived, without restrictions.
We follow the Gold Open Access way in journal publishing: Authors publish in journal that provides immediate open access to all of their articles on the publisher’s website.
The Open Access Publishing refers to the free availability of peer-reviewed papers on the worldwide internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full manuscripts. However, you must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license (Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License.), and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.
The Open Access Policy grants IJSI Publishing the right to license articles for free use. Alternatively, the authors (or their institution or funding agency) pay a publication fee to finance the operation of the journals.
All manuscripts should be written in English and prepared according to the Author Guide.
Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the authorities responsible where the work was carried out. However, we accept submissions that have previously appeared on preprint servers (for example: arXiv, bioRxiv, Nature Precedings, Philica, Social Science Research Network, and Vixra); have previously been presented at conferences; or have previously appeared in other “non-journal” venues (for example: blogs or posters). Authors are responsible for updating the archived preprint with the journal reference (including DOI) and a link to the published articles on the appropriate journal website upon publication.
Any manuscripts out of the journal’s scope or containing plagiarism, including self-plagiarism, are rejected. All submissions will be checked by iThenticate, Plagiarism X and dotRED before being sent to reviewers.
Reviewer can place his comments or recommend to reject any article if found to be inappropriate or irrelevant in terms of subject provided in the title of journal, or found to be having redundant data or copied data without providing proper citation.
Reviewing will be done with due respect for authors confidentiality which should not be violated during review process.
The reviewer should not place any criticism for the author or his research work while reviewing. There should be no personal objection of the article for reviewing.
Conflict of Interest
Reviewers should not review manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
Proper Peer Review System
Proper and fair peer review process should be followed resulting in good quality, accuracy of data as provided by the author and focuses in continuous improvement of the system.
As an Open Access publisher, IJSI Publishing charges a publication fee to cover the publication costs. The waiver policy is only available to the journal reviewers and editorial board members, so long as they performed the assigned review task punctually and seriously. We do not waive or reduce publication fees in any other cases.
