Open Access Policy
This is an open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to the user or his/her institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles in this journal without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the BOAI definition of open access.
Peer Review Policy
Reviewers play a central role in scholarly publishing. OJCST uses double-blind peer review process, which means that both the reviewer(s) and author(s) identities are concealed from the reviewer(s), and vice versa, throughout the review process. Peer review helps validate research, establish a method by which it can be evaluated, and increase networking possibilities within research communities.
All submitted papers will be reviewed by double-blind peer review process which may take minimum 1 to 5 weeks from the date of submission. We are advising all the author(s), not to submit the same paper to multiple journals.
Simultaneous submissions of the same manuscript to different journals will not be tolerated.
- Manuscripts with contents outside the scope will not be considered for review.
- Papers will be refereed by at least 2 experts (reviewers) as suggested by the editorial.
- In addition, Editors will have the option of seeking additional reviews when needed.
- All publication decisions are made by the journal’s Editors-in-Chief on the basis of the referees’ reports (reviewers report).
- Authors of papers that are not accepted are notified promptly.
- All submitted manuscripts are treated as confidential documents.
Plagiarism is the unethical act of copying someone else’s prior ideas, processes, results or words without explicit acknowledgment of the original author and source. Self-plagiarism occurs when an author utilizes a large part of his/her own previously published work without using appropriate references. This can range from getting the same manuscript published in multiple journals to modifying a previously published manuscript with some new data.
The journal is strictly against any unethical act of copying or plagiarism in any form. Oriental Journal of computer science and technology acts very strongly against plagiarism. Manuscripts found to be plagiarized during initial stages of review are sent back to the author for revision.?Any article with heavy similarity is out-rightly rejected and not considered for publication in the journal. All the papers submitted have to pass through an initial editorial screening and will be checked through the Advanced Plagiarism Detection Software (CrossCheck by iThenticate).
OJCST recognizes the importance of the integrity and completeness of the scholarly record to researchers and librarians and attaches the highest importance to maintaining trust in the authority of its electronic archive.
Articles can be withdrawn by the corresponding author. A request has to made to Editor in Chief with a valid reason for withdrawal. The completed withdrawal form along with withdrawal charges should be mailed to Editor in Chief.
Article Retraction Policy
Infringements of professional ethical codes, such as multiple submission, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data or the like. Occasionally a retraction will be used to correct errors in submission or publication. The retraction of an article by its authors or the editor under the advice of members of the scholarly community has long been an occasional feature of the learned world. Standards for dealing with retractions have been developed by a number of library and scholarly bodies, and this best practice is adopted for article retraction by OJCST:
- A retraction note titled “Retraction: [article title]” signed by the authors and/or the editor is published in the paginated part of a subsequent issue of the journal and listed in the contents list.
- In the electronic version, a link is made to the original article.
- The online article is preceded by a screen containing the retraction note. It is to this screen that the link resolves; the reader can then proceed to the article itself.
- The original article is retained unchanged save for a watermark on the .pdf indicating on each page that it is “retracted.” The HTML version of the document is removed.
Correctional representative all have the need to produce clear and concise written directives for staff, wrongdoer, and the community. provided the issues of administrative liability, accreditation standards, case law, and the need to support professional behavior, written policy and procedure is a necessity. It is also the basis for staff supervision, training, and supporting a defense when things go wrong. Corrections are published in the subsequent issue under Corrections and addendum.

Techno research publishers follow COPE and DOAJ policies of Ethical Publishing. It acts strongly against any complaints, which refers to unethical practices. Each case is investigated by Editor in Chief and the results are mailed to the complainant.
Oriental Journal of Science and Technology’s?Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement is based, in large part, on the guidelines and standards developed by the?Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). The relevant duties and expectations of authors, reviewers, and editors of the journal are set out below.
RESPONSIBILITIES OF AUTHORS
By submitting a manuscript to?Oriental Journal of Science and Technology, the author(s) warrant that the manuscript is their own, original work and that it has neither been published previously nor is currently being considered for publication elsewhere. They also warrant that the sources of any ideas and/or words in the manuscript that are not their own have been properly attributed through appropriate citations and/or quotes.
An author should not normally publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in multiple journals or publication venues. Such redundant publication is generally considered to constitute unethical publishing behavior, and if discovered may result in a manuscript under consideration being rejected, or a published article being retracted.
Authors of manuscripts reporting on original research should present an accurate account of the work performed, accompanied by an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the manuscript. The manuscript should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. The fabrication of results and the making of fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and may be cause for rejection or retraction of a manuscript or published article.
Where the manuscript reports on commercial software, hardware, or other products, authors must include a declaration at the beginning of the manuscript in which they must either state that no conflict of interest exists or describe the nature of any potential conflict. All sources of financial support for the research should also be disclosed in the manuscript.
The author(s) of a manuscript agree that if the manuscript is accepted for publication in?Oriental Journal of Science and Technology, the published article will be copyrighted using a Creative Commons “Attribution-Non Commercial-Share Alike” license. This license allows the author(s) to retain the copyright but also allows others to freely copy, distribute, and display the copyrighted work, and derivative works based upon it, under certain specified conditions.
Authors are responsible for obtaining written permission to include any images or artwork for which they do not hold copyright in their articles or to adopt any such images or artwork for inclusion in their articles. The copyright holder must be made explicitly aware that the image(s) or artwork will be made freely available online as part of the article under a Creative Commons “Attribution-Non Commercial-Share Alike” license.
The authors’ names should be listed in the article in order of their contribution to the article, and all authors take responsibility for their own contributions. Only those individuals who have made a substantive contribution should be listed as authors; those whose contributions are indirect or marginal (e.g., colleagues or supervisors who have reviewed drafts of the work or provided proofreading assistance, and heads of research institutes/centers/labs) should be named in an “Acknowledgments” section at the end of the article, immediately preceding the Reference List. The corresponding author must ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included on the article and that all listed co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the article and agreed to its publication.
Where an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in an article of his/hers that has been published in Oriental Journal of Science and Technology, he/she has an obligation to promptly notify the editors and cooperate with them to correct the article or retract it as appropriate. o
RESPONSIBILITIES OF REVIEWERS
Oriental Journal of Science and Technology’s?reviewers perform work for the journal on a volunteer basis. Given that most of these individuals are in full-time employment, their reviewing activities for?Oriental Journal of Science and Technology?must, by necessity, not be their top priority. Reviewers are free to decline invitations to review particular manuscripts at their discretion, for example, if their current employment workload and/or other commitments make it prohibitive for them to complete a review in a timely fashion and to do justice to the task in the available time frame. They should also not accept manuscript review assignments for which they feel unqualified.
Reviewers who have accepted manuscript assignments are normally expected to submit their reviews within three weeks. They should recuse themselves from the assignment if it becomes apparent to them at any stage that they do not possess the required expertise to perform the review, or that they may have a potential conflict of interest in performing the review (e.g., one resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, institutions, or companies associated with the manuscript).
Privileged information or ideas obtained by reviewers through the peer review process must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents, and must not be shown to or discussed with others except as authorized by the?Oriental Journal of Science and Technology Editor.
When conducting their reviews, reviewers are asked to do so as objectively as possible, refraining from engaging in personal criticism of the author(s). They are encouraged to express their views clearly, explaining and justifying all recommendations made. They should always attempt to provide detailed and constructive feedback to assist the author(s) in improving their work, even if the manuscript is, in their opinion, not publishable.
Reviewers should identify in their reviews relevant published work that has not been cited by the author(s), together with any instances in which proper attribution of sources has not been provided. They should call to the responsible editor’s attention any major resemblances between a manuscript under consideration and other published articles or papers of which they are aware, as well as any concerns they might have in relation to the ethical acceptability of the research reported in the manuscript.
RESPONSIBILITIES OF EDITORS
The?Oriental Journal of Science and Technology?Editor has ultimate responsibility for deciding if a manuscript submitted to?Oriental Journal of Science and Technology?should be published, and in doing so is guided by the journal’s policies as determined by the?Oriental Journal of Science and Technology?editorial board and constrained by such legal requirements as shall then be in force regarding libel, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. The Editor may consult with the Associate Editor and other members of the editorial team, as well as with reviewers, in making publication decisions.
The editors will evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to the race, color, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the author(s). They will not disclose any information about a manuscript under consideration to anyone other than the author(s), reviewers and potential reviewers, and in some instances the?Oriental Journal of Science and Technology editorial board members, as appropriate. Additionally, the editors will make every effort to ensure the integrity of the blind review process by not revealing the identity of the author(s) of a manuscript to the reviewers of that manuscript, and vice versa.
When evaluating a manuscript for publication, in addition to considering standard criteria pertaining to the rigor of the manuscript, the quality of its presentation, and its contribution to humanity’s stock of knowledge, the editors will also seek evidence that ethical harms have been minimized in the conduct of the reported research. They will question whether the benefits outweigh the harms in the particular study’s case. Since?Oriental Journal of Science and Technology?welcomes the submission of manuscripts from any country, it is necessary to recognize that laws and regulations regarding research ethics and ethical approval vary worldwide. As such, the editors may need to seek clarification in this regard with the author(s) and request that they supply a letter from the relevant institutional ethics committee or board that approved the research.
The editors will be guided by CORE’s?Guidelines for Retracting Articles?when considering retracting, issuing an expressions of concern about, and issuing corrections pertaining to articles that have been published in Oriental Journal of Science and Technology. They are committed to working closely with research organizations and institutions in line with CORE’s advice on?Cooperation between Research Institutions and Journals on Research Integrity Cases.
