Accidentally or knowingly inaccurate statements, included in unethical behavior which is strictly prohibited. Review, short communication, surveys and any other type of article, should also fulfill the objectives accurately.
- Data Access and Retention
During reviewing process, if any question arises about the accuracy or validity of the research work, author must have to provide the raw data and evidence to the Editor. All the data included Tables and Figures should also be generated originally, should be free from manipulation. Authors and researchers asked to anonymize the research data and personal information, so that they may be accessed. As a data source, authors may asked to retain data for a reasonable number of years after publication.
