Publication Ethics

International Journal Of Clinical Pharmacokinetics and Medical Sciences (IJCPMS) sponsored by Pharma Springs publication advises the authors not to pay any agents who assure you of quick acceptance and publishing. Pharma Springs Publications is not responsible for any cash transaction between the agents and authors. We have not authorized any person to act as an agent. All correspondence should be made only to our official email ID: editorijcpmspharmasprings@gmail.com

Pharma Springs Publications is an Ethical standard for publication that exists to ensure high-quality scientific publications, public trust in scientific findings, and that people receive credit for their ideas. All authors submitting their works to the journal for publication as original articles attest that the submitted works represent their author’s contributions and have not been copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other works.

The authors acknowledge that they have disclosed all and any actual or potential conflicts of interest with their work or partial benefits associated with it. All submitted papers are subjected to plagiarism check and peer-review, these processes may take about 1-3 months.  In the same manner, “International Journal Of  Clinical Pharmacokinetics and Medical Sciences” is committed to objective and fair double-blind peer-review of the submitted for publication works and to prevent any actual or potential conflict of interests between the editorial and review personnel and the reviewed material. Any departures from the above-defined rules should be reported directly to the Editors-in-Chief, who is unequivocally committed to providing swift resolutions to any of such a type of problem. If you have any concerns about how your information is being used or questions about IJCPMS, Privacy Statement, please contact editorijcpmspharmasprings@gmail.com.

It is important to avoid:

Article assessment

All manuscripts are subject to peer review and are expected to meet standards of academic excellence. If approved by the editor, submissions will be considered by peer reviewers, whose identities will remain anonymous to the authors.

Our Research Integrity team will occasionally seek advice outside standard peer review, for example, on submissions with serious ethical, security, or societal implications. We may consult experts and the academic editor before deciding on appropriate actions, including but not limited to recruiting reviewers with specific expertise, assessment by additional editors, and declining to further consider a submission.

Originality and Plagiarism

Authors should ensure that they have written original works. Any work or words of other authors, contributors, or sources (including online sites) should be appropriately credited and referenced. Taking the ideas and work of others without giving them credit is unfair and dishonest. Copying even one sentence from someone else’s manuscript, or even one of your own that has previously been published, without proper citation, is considered plagiarism-use your own words instead.

Plagiarism detection

International Journal Of Clinical Pharmacokinetics and Medical Sciences sponsored by Pharma Springs Publications is a member of the Cross Check plagiarism detection initiative. In cases of suspected plagiarism, Cross Check is available to the editors of our journals to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts.

Further to the above journal sponsored by Pharma Springs Publications provides a platform for the open public discussion of the journal contents. The website contents will be available without logging but no peer review comments can be posted on the website without the disclosure of the reviewer identity to the journal editors.

Multiple submissions

It is unethical to submit the same manuscript to more than one journal at the same time. Doing this wastes the time of editors and peer reviewers, and can damage the reputation of the authors and the journals if published in more than one journal as the later publication will have to be retracted.

Redundant publications

This means publishing many very similar manuscripts based on the same experiment. It can make readers less likely to pay attention to your manuscripts.

Improper author contribution or attribution:

All listed authors must have made a significant scientific contribution to the research in the manuscript and approved all its claims. Don't forget to list everyone who made a significant scientific contribution, including students and laboratory technicians. The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors has detailed guidelines on authorship that are useful for scientists in all fields.

Citation manipulation

Authors whose submitted manuscripts are found to include citations whose primary purpose is to increase the number of citations to a given author’s work or articles published in a particular journal may incur sanctions. Editors and reviewers must not ask authors to include references merely to increase citations to their own or an associate’s work, to the journal, or to another journal they are associated with.

Fabrication and falsification

The authors of submitted manuscripts or published articles that are found to have fabricated or falsified the results, including the manipulation of images, may incur sanctions, and published articles may be retracted.

Improper author contribution or attribution

All listed authors must have made a significant scientific contribution to the research in the manuscript and approved all its claims. Don’t forget to list everyone who made a significant scientific contribution, including students and laboratory technicians. Do not “gift” authorship to those who did not contribute to the paper. The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors has detailed guidelines on authorship that are useful for scientists in all fields: International Committee of Medical Journal Editors. Many journals have tools and processes in place to identify researchers that engage in unethical behaviour. If you are caught your manuscript may be rejected without review and your institution informed.

COPE 

Our journal will follow the guidelines of COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) is an international forum for editors and publishers of peer-reviewed journals that provide the “code of conduct” and “best practice guidelines” that define publication ethics and advises editors on how to handle cases of research and publication misconduct. Which is a charity registered in the UK. It is concerned with the integrity of peer-reviewed publications in science.

 

Corrections and retractions

When errors are identified in published articles, the publisher will consider what action is required and may consult the editors and the authors’ institution(s).

Errors by the authors may be corrected by a corrigendum and errors by the publisher by an erratum. If there are errors that significantly affect the conclusions or there is evidence of misconduct, this may require retraction or an expression of concern following the COPE Retraction Guidelines. All authors will be asked to agree to the content of the notice.

As a part of IJCPMS commitment to protecting the integrity of the scholarly record, IJCPMS feels strong obligation to support the scientific community in all aspects of research and publishing ethics. We invest in many resources to help educate researchers on how to avoid ethical issues, to detect any issues during the editors in handling publishing ethics allegations and, if necessary, to correct the scholarly record.
