Journal OA Policy and Ethics:

IJABR maintains the highest standards of peer review while increasing the efficiency of the process. All research articles published in journal are fully open access: immediately freely available to read, download and share. Articles are published under the terms of a Creative Commons license which permits use, distribution and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited.

Submission of a manuscript to our journal implies that all authors have read and agreed to its content and that the manuscript conforms to the journal's policies.

Originality: only original content is published. Authors confirm the submission of original content in the Terms & Conditions upon submission. Manuscripts submitted to the journal must not have been previously published or be under consideration for publication elsewhere, either in whole or in part.

Plagiarism: IJABR checks all submitted manuscripts for plagiarism and duplication, and publishes only original content. Plagiarism occurs when an author attempts to present previously published work as original content. Those manuscripts where plagiarism or duplication is shown to have occurred will not be considered for publication in IJABR journal.
In accordance with COPE guidelines , expected that original words/statement taken directly from published work by other researchers should appear with the appropriate citations.

Ethics approval: Whenever human data involved in research should be approved by an appropriate ethics committee. Manuscripts may be rejected if the research has not been carried out within an appropriate ethical framework.

Sex and gender in research (SAGER): We encourage our authors to follow the ‘Sex and Gender Equity in Research – SAGER – guidelines’ and to include sex and gender considerations where relevant.

Consent for publication: For all manuscripts that include details, images, or videos relating to an individual person, written informed consent for the publication of these details must be obtained from that person. When informed consent has been obtained, it should be indicated in the published article.
The consent must be for publication of their details under the Creative Commons Attribution License 4.0 (such that they will be freely available on the internet).

Acknowledgement of sources: Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given.

Disclosure and conflicts of interest: All submissions must include disclosure of all relationships that could be viewed as presenting a potential conflict of interest.

Peer review of referred papers:
Single blind:Author doesn't know the identiy of the reviewer.
Double blind:Reviewer doesn't know the identity of the author, and vice-versa.
Open Peer review:The identity of the author and the reviewer is known by all participants, during or after the review process.
Transparent Peer review: Review report is posted with the published article. Reviewer can choose if they want to share their identity.
Collaborative: Two or more reviewers work together to submit a unified report.    OR  Author revises manuscript under the supervision of one or more reviewers.
Post publication: Review solicited or unsolicited, of a published paper. Does not exclude other forms of peer review.
Editors of our Open Access journal will decide promptly whether to accept, reject, or request revisions of referred papers based on the reviews and editorial insight of the supporting journals. In addition, Editors will have the option of seeking additional reviews when needed. Authors will be advised when Editors decide further review is needed.

Our Peer review process  of novel submissions:
The peer review is double blind, i.e. authors and reviewers do not know each other's identities during peer review. Usually, an article is reviewed by two independent reviewers.

1. Authors submit a Manuscript.
2. The Editor-in-chief verifies relevance of the Manuscript to the journal's policy for publishing.
3. If Manuscript have the merits of journal's Scope, the Editor-in-chief will assign the two reviewers, who are expert in respective field. IJABR follows Double blind Review process.
4. Reviewer'r comment will be sent to the Associate editor, whether Manuscript Need modification, Rejection or Accepted. This message will forward to Authors also.
5.  If Manuscript accepted by reviewrs, Acceptance will be sent to the author, after galley proof approved by the Author then Manuscript will be in queue for publication.
6. If modification asked by the reviwer, The author/s should respond in due time and clarify ambiguities if any.
7. Upon receiving the revised Manuscript, the reviewers will check the author/s modified Manuscript.
8. If modified/revised paper Manuscript by the reviewer, the acceptance will be sent to the author, after galley proof approved by Author then Manuscript will be in queue for publication.

Withdrawal of Manuscripts
Authors are not allowed to withdraw submitted manuscripts, because the withdrawals are waste of valuable resources that editors and referees spent a great deal of time processing submitted manuscript, money and works invested by the publisher.
Withdrawal of manuscripts are only allowed after withdrawal request has been made to the Publisher.
In case of fraudulent submission, Withdrawn means that the article content (HTML and PDF) is removed and replaced with a HTML page and PDF simply stating that the article has been withdrawn according to the journal Policy on Article in Press Withdrawal with a link to the current policy document.

Confidentiality: Editors will treat all manuscripts submitted to our journals in confidence. Our journal adheres to COPE's Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers. Reviewers are therefore required to respect the confidentiality of the peer review process and not reveal any details of a manuscript or its review, during or after the peer-review process, beyond the information released by the journal. We will not share manuscripts with third parties outside of our journal editorial committee except in cases of suspected misconduct.

Third party submissions: Some third party/like agents contact to publisher/journal to publish the bulk of papers from different Authors. IJABR strictly declare that, Third party submission is not allowed. All manuscripts must be submitted by an author and may not be submitted by a third party.

The Process for Handling Cases Requiring Corrections, Retractions, and Editorial Expressions of Concern.

Corrections
Fundamental errors in published works
When an author discovers a significant error in own published work, author should promptly notify the journal editor or publisher to retract or correct the paper.
Corrections can be submitted if: a small portion of /there is an error in a figure/there is an error in statistical data; these changes should not alter the conclusions. Corrections can be submitted if the author or contributor list is incorrect.
Editorial expressions of concern
Where substantial doubt arises as to the honesty or integrity of a submitted or published article, journal editors may consider issuing an expression of concern. However, expressions of concern should only be issued if an investigation into the problems relating to the article has proven inconclusive, and if there remain strong indicators that the concerns are valid.  Under some rare cases, an editorial expression of concern may also be issued when an investigation is underway but a judgement will not be available for a considerable time.
The expression of concern will be linked back to the published article it relates to.

Retractions
Retractions are considered and published when there are severe errors in an article that invalidate the conclusions. Retractions are also made in cases where there is evidence of publication malpractice, such as plagiarism, duplicate publication, or unethical research.
The original article is retained unchanged save for a watermark on the HTML and PDF indicating on each page that it has been "retracted."

Editorial expressions of concern: Where substantial doubt arises as to the honesty or integrity of a submitted or published article, journal editors may consider issuing an expression of concern.
