IJSRMS does not tolerate plagiarism, data or figure manipulation, knowingly providing incorrect information, copyright infringement, inaccurate author attributions, attempts
to inappropriately manipulate the peer review process, failures to declare conflicts of interest, fraud, and libel. IJSRMS will rigorously enforce its standards, and follow up
on any transgressions. In extreme cases, this may call for individuals to be reported to their institutions and/or for manuscripts to be retracted. Any complaints should be
directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
IJSRMS is an open access journal. Authors have to pay an article-processing charge whereby their accepted manuscripts are made available barrier-free and open
access. These manuscripts are published under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License (CC-BY), the most permissive of the CC licenses, which
permits authors and others to copy, distribute, transmit, and adapt the work, provided that proper credit is given. The article-processing charges have been set to cover all
costs, thus providing a sustainable model.

research, publication or professional behaviour, we may discuss the case in confidence with the deliberation committee selected by IJSRMS editorial board members.

confidentiality unless given permission to reveal identities. Authors, reviewers and editors must also treat correspondence as confidential unless explicitly stated otherwise.
IJSRMS reserves the right to retract articles which are found to be fraudulent (for example subject to deception such as data manipulation) or in serious breach of one of
