Policy of Authenticity

On submitting their manuscript to the IJPSL, the/all author(s) ensure and warrant its originality. They accept all the terms and conditions mentioned on our website and/or conveyed via emails and condemn any malpractices associated with the publication. The IJPSL firmly dissuades all forms of plagiarism- lines, paragraphs, images, screenshots, diagrams, tables, charts, illustrations, logos, trademarks, etc. The author(s) must acknowledge and give due credits to the work of others. Any analysis/theory obtained privately/publicly by the author should be used only after receiving permission from the original source or through citations. Otherwise, serious actions can be taken against the author(s).

Besides plagiarism, the IJPSL has a zero-tolerance policy towards counterfeiting and falsification. Such acts not only harm the reputation of the journal but also the academic identity of the author(s). The manuscript shall not include any obscene, libellous or defamatory material that goes against the journal guidelines. These malpractices can lead to the rejection of your manuscript and if caught after the publication will lead to the suspension of the author(s) from publishing in the IJPSL.

Before submitting their manuscripts to the IJPSL, the author(s) must assure that neither their research- in total or in parts- is in consideration elsewhere nor it has been published previously. If the journal finds it otherwise, the manuscript will not be considered for publication in the IJPSL and if published, will be removed with immediate effect. All the author(s) must also submit a duly signed Author(s) Declaration, sent before the publication, as failure to do so can lead to rejection of the manuscript. 

Any/all the conflict of interests related to a publication shall be conveyed by the author, directly/indirectly, to the journal. Conflict of interest, here, refers to disclosing any individual/organization that affected/aided/shaped/influenced your research. Any sensitive information related to the potential publication shall not be obscured from the readers. Any serious allegations, within this context, shall fall upon the author(s) and must be satisfied by them. Such instances will lead to the expulsion of the concerned manuscript from the journal. 

In case the author(s) find an error in the published version of their research, they are suggested to convey the same to the journal via email and assist them to correct the same.
