Article Posting Policy and Ethics
Follows generally three stages-
a) Raw Pre-data Manuscript: An author's own document or data submitted based on the investigations or research findings that has not been processed by any peer reviewers nor had any possible worth added to it by a publisher which includes formatting, copy editing, technical enhancement etc. of its kind.
b) Post-print Manuscript: A post-print is any version of an article which has been approved by peer review but not copy-edited. In scientific content, it is identical to the published version of the article.
c) Open Publisher's version(OPV): Called as the "open publisher's version" mostly in PDF format the published version of the article usually includes additional changes made by the journal's editorial staff after acceptance of the author's final manuscript.
IJCIH is quite lenient with respect to authors and electronic raw Pre-data Manuscript. So, an author has the right to use the same for personal use, interior institutional use and for allowed academic posting.
We guarantees each OPV credibility, we work with others (e.g. national libraries) to protect them for posterity and in perpetuity, and we contribute to drive their use. We as Publishers contribute considerable time, money and assets to create, keep up and develop both journals not orieties and the publishing process. The circulation of OPV is along these lines likewise subject to strict guidelines so that journals capability to recover the speculations needed to make them is not compromised.
To follow professional ethics codes, such as multiple submission, false claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data, or the like we have got Cross Check Team(CCT) who take care to verify the originality of published works using software tools to avoid publishing hazards in the form of Legal limitations upon the publisher, copyright holder or author(s), article retraction, article removal or article replacement in relations especially based on false medical or inaccurate data relating to health risk.
Special issues are published as part of the journal's announced publication schedule, and production costs are chargeable by the journal from the authors.; this is different for supplements, with which special issues are often confused. It is required that editors agree to a time schedule and inform contributing authors of the deadlines for submitting and revising manuscripts. Deadlines should be strictly adhered to, especially at revision stage.
