Peer Review Policy
The Editorial Board of the journal will immediately screen all articles submitted for publication in this journal. Those articles which fail to reach the scientific standards of the journal may be declined without further review. Those articles which satisfy the requirements of the Editorial Board will be sent to a maximum of two referees. These are experts in the field who have agreed to provide a rapid assessment of the article. Every effort will be made to provide an editorial decision as to acceptance for publication within 4-6 weeks of submission. Referees may request a revision of the article to be made. In this case, it is generally understood that only one revised version can be considered for further appraisal under the peer-review system. The Editorial Board of the journal is responsible for the final selection of referees to conduct the peer-review process for that journal.
The names of referees will not be made available to authors. However, referees will be informed as to the identity of the authors whose articles are subject to review.
All members of the Editorial Board and referees are asked to declare any competing interests they may have in reviewing a manuscript. If on receiving the editorial decision concerning their manuscript authors are not satisfied they are invited to appeal to the Editorial Office. In cases in which this is considered appropriate, a second opinion on the manuscript will be requested.
Article Retraction Policy
Work may be withdrawn only after it has been submitted and before it is published. Publication in academic journals is not like newspaper news or blog posts that can be easily retracted or removed after open-access online publication. After publication, all published contents are the assets (intellectual property) of the journal. The journals which publish research articles, do not publish any articles for any future removal or retraction. The journals never retract/ remove any of their published research articles without a valid reason. Moreover, all published contents are distributed in different databases through the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH).
However, for any emergency cases, the journal follows its retraction policy to retract any contents.
- >> The retraction request must come from the corresponding author's email, with the concern of all authors.
- >> For retraction, there is a charge of 330 US$ that must be paid.
- >> The URL for the original article will be maintained in its entirety, with a note on the.pdf stating that it has been "retracted."
- >> The PDF version of the previously uploaded document from the journal's own volume archive will be deleted only.
- >> For the removal of whole information of the manuscript, there is a charge of 525 US$ that must be bear (title, abstract, author info and full-text article pdf will be removed, cause of retraction will remain in the archive with the title only for a maximum of 7 days).
- >> Article retraction/ removal would not ensure of removal of the PDF from any third-party databases, or indexed databases.

All papers are published as soon as they have been accepted, by adding them to the "current" volume's Table of Contents.
Subscription Access Policy
This journal does not provide immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available. To the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge, the journal will require a minimum subscription to access some or all of its contents.
This journal utilizes the PKP Preservation Network, and Portico to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries and permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration.
Pre- and post-prints
Upright Publications allows and encourages authors to deposit both their pre- and post-prints in Open-Access institutional archives or repositories. The primary benefit of pre- and post-print self-archiving is reaching a larger audience which enhances the visibility and impact of your research.
Upright Publications strongly supports the mission of the COPE Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors; all individuals collaborating with Upright Publications are strongly invited to comply with this mission.
All research articles published by Upright journals are subject to rigorous ethical standards. Our journals endorse the Code of Conduct of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), as well as the COPE International Standards for Editors and Authors Guidelines. The Editorial Board of each journal is responsible for the form the peer review process will take; therefore, all authors in the biomedical field must adhere to the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals. Upright Publications endorses the World Association of Medical Editors (WAME) Policy Statement on Geopolitical Intrusion on Editorial Decisions, too.
The Editorial Board of our journals will immediately screen all articles submitted for publication in that journal. All submissions we receive are checked for plagiarism by using online available tools like Turnitin and Grammarly. Any suspected misconduct ends up with a quick rejection.
Conflict of Interests
Conflict of interest exists when an author (or the author's institution), reviewer, or editor has financial or personal relationships that inappropriately influence (bias) his or her actions (such relationships are also known as dual commitments, competing interests, or competing loyalties). These relationships vary from negligible to great potential for influencing judgment. Not all relationships represent true conflict of interest. On the other hand, the potential for conflict of interest can exist regardless of whether an individual believes that the relationship affects his or her scientific judgment. Financial relationships (such as employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, and paid expert testimony) are the most easily identifiable conflicts of interest and the most likely to undermine the credibility of the journal, the authors, and of science itself. However, conflicts can occur for other reasons, such as personal relationships, academic competition, and intellectual passion.
All participants in the peer-review and publication process must disclose all relationships that could be viewed as potential conflicts of interest. Disclosure of such relationships is also important in connection with editorials and review articles because it can be more difficult to detect bias in these types of publications than in reports of original research. Editors may use information disclosed in conflict-of-interest and financial-interest statements as a basis for editorial decisions.
When authors submit a manuscript, whether an article or a letter, they are responsible for disclosing all financial and personal relationships that might bias their work. To prevent ambiguity, authors must state explicitly whether potential conflicts do or do not exist. Authors should do so in the manuscript on a conflict-of-interest notification page, providing additional detail, if necessary, in a cover letter that accompanies the manuscript. Increasingly, individual studies receive funding from commercial firms, private foundations, and the government. The conditions of this funding have the potential to bias and otherwise discredit the research.
Editors may request that authors of a study funded by an agency with a proprietary or financial interest in the outcome sign a statement, such as "I had full access to all of the data in this study and I take complete responsibility for the integrity of the data and the accuracy of the data analysis." Editors should be encouraged to review copies of the protocol and/or contracts associated with project-specific studies before accepting such studies for publication. Editors may choose not to consider an article if a sponsor has asserted control over the authors' right to publish.
Reviewers must disclose to editors any conflicts of interest that could bias their opinions of the manuscript, and they should recuse themselves from reviewing specific manuscripts if the potential for bias exists. As in the case of authors, silence on the part of reviewers concerning potential conflicts may mean either that conflicts exist and the reviewer has failed to disclose them or conflicts do not exist. Reviewers must therefore also be asked to state explicitly whether conflicts do or do not exist. Reviewers must not use knowledge of the work, before its publication, to further their own interests.
Editors who make final decisions about manuscripts must have no personal, professional, or financial involvement in any of the issues they might judge. Other members of the editorial staff, if they participate in editorial decisions, must provide editors with a current description of their financial interests (as they might relate to editorial judgments) and recuse themselves from any decisions in which a conflict of interest exists.
