An author is deemed to have made a significant intellectual contribution to a published study if they have contributed significantly to the conception and design, the collection of data, the analysis and interpretation of data, the writing of the manuscript or its critical revision for significant intellectual content, and the giving of the version to be published. Each author should have contributed sufficiently to the project to accept accountability for the appropriate portions of the work’s content and to agree to be responsible for all aspects of the work, including ensuring that any concerns about the work’s accuracy or integrity are duly investigated and acknowledged.The basic receipt of funds, data collecting, or overall oversight of the study team is typically insufficient to claim authorship. Those who contributed but didn’t match the requirements for authorship should all be acknowledged. It is important to recognize the contribution of scientific writers as well as their funding. All authors must certify in writing to SCIENXT-Centre of Excellence Publishing any suggested changes to the authorship of previously submitted works.
A Competing Interests section outlining any competing interests must be included in every paper that is submitted. The phrase “The authors have declared that no competing interests exist” should be used when there are no competing interests. Editors may request more details regarding conflicting interests. A competing interest must be disclosed by editors and reviewers or they will be disqualified from participating in the peer review process.
Editors and reviewers must maintain the confidentiality of the manuscripts. Except in instances of suspected malfeasance, SCIENXT Publishing will not divulge manuscripts to parties outside of SCIENXT Publishing.
Plagiarism and Copyright
Any manuscript that is submitted to a journal must be unique and cannot already be under review by another publication. Each article is checked by SCIENXT Publishing for plagiarism, and any instances of publication misconduct are taken seriously. The SCIENXT stance on overlapping publications is supported by SCIENXT Publishing. Text from the authors’ prior writings that has been copied is not accepted. Abstracts of up to 400 words and posters displayed at or published alongside academic gatherings do not exclude a full article from peer review. It is appropriate to cite published abstracts.The number of conference proceedings that surpass the permitted limit and are citable should be made clear to authors. If authors of non-research papers affirm upon submission that permission has been received from the original publisher and cite the original piece, they may incorporate figures and tables that have previously been published in other journals. Self-citation that is excessive or inappropriate is strongly discouraged. The legal accuracy of authors’ papers is their responsibility. Legally, Scienxt Publishing must make sure that none of the information published in its magazines violates copyright or contains libelous or defamatory statements. Manuscripts with content that might be libelous or defamatory, or that violates copyright, will be rejected.
Corrections and retractions
The publication of an erratum or a retraction article will be used to correct errors in or retract published articles. The original article will not be changed except to include a prominent link to the erratum/retraction piece. In the unlikely occasion that content is deemed to violate specific rights or is libelous, we may be required to delete it from our site, and archive sites.
