Publication Ethics

Pharmascope advices the authors not to pay any agents who assure you for quick acceptance and publishing. Pharmascope is not responsible for any cash transaction between the agents and authors. We have not authorized any person to act as agent. All correspondance should be made only to our official email ID: pharmascope.org@gmail.com

All submitted papers are subjected to plagiarism check and peer-review, these processes may take about 1-3 months. Pharmascope will not charge any amount for quick or unethical publications. Otherthan article processing, publishing of article is free and open access. Ethical standards for publication exist to ensure high-quality scientific publications, public trust in scientific findings, and that people receive credit for their ideas.

It is important to avoid:

Data fabrication and falsification

Data fabrication means the researcher did not actually do the study, but made up data. Data falsification means the researcher did the experiment, but then changed some of the data. Both of these practices make people distrust scientists. If the public is mistrustful of science then it will be less willing to provide funding support.

Plagiarism

Taking the ideas and work of others without giving them credit is unfair and dishonest. Copying even one sentence from someone else's manuscript, or even one of your own that has previously been published, without proper citation is considered plagiarism-use your own words instead.

Multiple submissions

It is unethical to submit the same manuscript to more than one journal at the same time. Doing this wastes the time of editors and peer reviewers, and can damage the reputation of journals if published in more than one.

Redundant publications

This means publishing many very similar manuscripts based on the same experiment. It can make readers less likely to pay attention to your manuscripts.

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. Don't forget to list everyone who made a significant scientific contribution, including students and laboratory technicians.

COPE

Our journal will follow the guidelines of COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics), which is a charity registered in the UK. It is concerned with the integrity of peer-reviewed publications in science.

Plagiarism detection

Pharmascope is a member of the CrossCheck plagiarism detection initiative. In cases of suspected plagiarism, CrossCheck is available to the editors of our journals to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts.
