These policies serve as guidelines for authors, reviewers, and editors, fostering a fair and unbiased publishing process. Below are the key editorial policies that govern our publication:

Peer Review Process:

All submitted manuscripts undergo a rigorous and impartial peer review process. Our expert reviewers assess the quality, originality, and scientific merit of each submission. The peer review process is double-blind, ensuring the anonymity of both authors and reviewers to maintain objectivity.

Originality and Plagiarism:

We strictly enforce policies against plagiarism and self-plagiarism. All submitted works must be original and not under consideration for publication elsewhere. We use advanced plagiarism detection tools to screen all submissions, and any instances of plagiarism will result in immediate rejection.

Publication Ethics:

Contusm Publication adheres to the highest standards of publication ethics. We expect authors to present accurate and honest research findings, provide proper citation to all sources, and disclose any conflicts of interest. Any breach of publication ethics will be addressed seriously.

Authorship and Contributions:

Authors should meet the criteria for authorship, as defined by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE). All individuals who have made significant contributions to the research should be listed as co-authors. It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to ensure that all co-authors have approved the final version of the manuscript.

Data Availability:

We encourage authors to provide access to the underlying data that support their research findings whenever possible. Authors should clearly state the data availability and provide relevant links or instructions for accessing the data.

Conflicts of Interest:

Authors are required to disclose any financial, professional, or personal relationships that could be perceived as potential conflicts of interest. Reviewers and editors are also expected to declare any conflicts of interest that may influence their impartiality in the review process.
