Editors will also ensure that all the information related to submitted manuscripts is kept as confidential before publishing. Editors also check for and manipulation of existing research data. The editors will report any cases of suspected plagiarism or duplicate publishing.

Reviewers evaluate manuscripts based on content without regard to ethnic or racial origin, residence, gender, sexual orientation, citizenship, religious belief, political affiliation or other personal characteristics of the authors. They must ensure that all the information related to submitted manuscripts is kept as confidential and must report to the Editor-in-Chief if they suspect copyright infringement and plagiarism. They must evaluate the submitted works objectively as well as present clearly their opinions on the works in the review form.

Authors must ensure that they have written original, unpublished works. Any work or words of other authors, contributors, or sources should be appropriately credited, referenced and cited.

All articles submitted undergo language editing before publication. All authors should disclose financial or other conflict of interest that might influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript (financial support of research projects should be disclosed, usually within the article itself). An author agrees to the license agreement before submitting the article. Submitting a paper simultaneously to more than one publication at a time is considered a breach of publications ethics.
