Publication Policy and Agreement
(a) Publication Agreement
(b) Publication Policies
This is a publication agreement regarding a research paper, which is submitted for publication in our journal. There will be two parties; the author and the SMART MOVES JOURNAL IJOSCIENCE/SMART MOVES (Publisher). In later on in this agreement, we will write IJOSCIENCE instead of SMART MOVES JOURNAL IJOSCIENCE/SMART MOVES. When an author or a co-author submit their research paper to the journal this means that they agree to the journal's terms and conditions. If an author is submitting a manuscript, he/she will be deemed that he/she has read, agree and abide by our policies.
IJOSCIENCE is committed to fair and ethical publication policies. We adhere to publication ethics, policy, guidance laid by COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics). The following points are only intended to give a broad overview and are not exhaustive. We categorically instruct our authors, editors, reviewers or anyone who is a part of the publication process, do refer to the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). If we found any violation of COPE guidelines, the action will be taken according to COPE guidelines on case to case basis.
