Submission of a research work to more than one Journal is exploitative and unsatisfactory. AU-GSB e-Journal adapts ‘Turnitin’ software to check for plagiarism and/or previous publication plagiarism history (if applicable) and rejects the manuscript that have substantial proportions of text that are directly adapted from other journals or resources.

Accuracy: Authors of the manuscript that report original research should submit a proof of an accurate account of the work performed as well as discussions regarding its significance, since underlying data should be represented accurately in the manuscript. Conclusions and decisions should be made according to the evidence presented in the paper.

Acknowledgment of Sources: A research paper that is built upon previously published research study. Author(s) must acknowledge ideas and previously published outcomes by citing the studies in the manuscript and list them in the references. Providing statements of ideas and figures without acknowledging and citing evidence to back up these statements is not a favorable research practice.

Disclosure of Financial Support and Conflicts of Interest: All financial assistance for the manuscript and the research study composing interaction ought to be disclosed in the affirmations and any conflicts of interest ought to be expressed.

Authorship: Each personnel listed as an Author should have sufficient participation in the research, accountable for public responsibility for the submitted manuscript, and agree to be accountable for all areas related to its authenticity. This support should incorporate conception and plan of action of the manuscript, data acquisition or analysis of data and interpretation, the manuscript drafting and/or revising it for critically significant intellectual content, amendments and final approval of the manuscript and statistical analysis, obtaining fund, administrative, technical, or material support, or supervision.

Unpublished materials revealed in a submitted composition should not be cited or referred to by an editor without the express composed assent of the creator. Information or ideas obtained throughout the peer review process must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage.

Objectivity: Choices on distribution are made dispassionately subsequent to exploring the submitted composition and the companion audits. The importance of the article's contribution to the existing research in its field, the quality of articulation of the argument, and the strength of the submitted evidence are critical factors in the decision to publish.

Duties of Reviewers

Confidentiality: Reviewers should respect the confidentiality of the review process. They should not discuss aspects of the research under review with other researchers until the article is published.

Conflicts of interest can include competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the paper under review.

Objectivity: Manuscripts should be reviewed objectively in the context of the reviewer's expertise in the field.
