- That information pertaining to manuscripts are kept confidential

- The Editorial Board takes responsibility for making publication decisions for submitted manuscripts based on the reviewer’s evaluation of the manuscript, policies of the journal editorial board and legal restrain acting against plagiarism, libel and copyright infringement.
You are not permitted to withdraw submitted articles as such articles are immediately assigned to reviewers upon submission. Any author who wishes to withdraw his/her submitted manuscript(s) must pay the article processing charge of the journal otherwise, we will inform his university as it is illegal and unethical to withdraw a manuscript under review.
You are not permitted to withdraw accepted articles as most of our editors and reviewers are salaried workers whom we are obligated to pay whenever they complete the peer-review process.
You are not allowed to withdraw an already published work. If you request us to remove an already published work for any reason other than plagiarism, such a request would attract a withdrawal fee.
Once an author has filled the consent form to pay the handling fee and later change his mind to withdraw his paper, he must pay the article processing fee and if he refuses, we shall report him to his university.
The only ground for authors to withdraw their articles is when their manuscripts have been rejected by our reviewers or editors. If authors withdraw or send their articles to another journal without our permission, then we shall have no choice than to report them to their institutions.
