Disclosure Policy and Publication Ethics

Conflict of Interest

We require that authors provide a statement at the end of the manuscript revealing all possible conflicts of interest related to the work presented in the manuscript, or the lack thereof.

Research Ethics and Integrity

Authors MUST follow ethical means of undertaking research, acquiring data, and presenting information.

Use of Human and Animal Subjects

In any studies, involving human subjects all work must be conducted in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki (1964). Papers describing studies on human subjects must include a statement that their relevant institutional committee has approved the described work.

In the case of experiments involving animals, the authors should provide a statement assuring that the described experiments have been approved by the relevant institutional committee.


All journals published by AgiAl Publishing House are committed to publishing only original material, i.e., material that has neither been published nor is under review elsewhere. AgiAl Publishing House as a participant of Crossref Similarity Check uses iThenticate software to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. Manuscripts that are found to have been plagiarized from a manuscript by other authors, whether published or unpublished, will incur plagiarism sanctions.

Duplicate Submission

Manuscripts that are found to have been published elsewhere, or to be under review elsewhere, will incur duplicate submission/publication sanctions. If authors have used their own previously published work, or work that is currently under review, as the basis for a submitted manuscript, they are required to cite the previous work and indicate how their submitted manuscript offers novel contributions beyond those of the previous work.

Citation Manipulation

Submitted manuscripts that are found to include citations whose primary purpose is to increase the number of citations to a given author’s work, or to articles published in a particular journal, will incur citation manipulation sanctions.

Data Fabrication and Falsification

Submitted manuscripts that are found to have either fabricated or falsified experimental results, including the manipulation of images, will incur data fabrication and falsification sanctions.

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. It is important to list everyone who made a significant scientific contribution, including students and laboratory technicians.

Redundant Publications

Redundant publications involve the inappropriate division of study outcomes into several articles.

  • Prohibition against all of the authors for any new submissions to any journal published by AgiAl Publishing House, either individually or in combination with other authors of the infringing manuscript, as well as in combination with any other authors. This prohibition will be imposed for a minimum of 36 months.
