The Journal of Research Society of Pakistan's Management Committee has adopted, in accordance with the guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), this code of conduct to guarantee an ethical approach to the publication and dissemination of scientific works. The Management and all the other organs of the Journal undertake to know, respect and enforce, also towards all the collaborators of the Journal (Authors and Reviewers), the ethical principles set out below.

Journal Bodies:
The Management undertakes to select contributions for publication exclusively on the basis of their scientific value, certified by means of an anonymous review procedure. The Management is also required to act promptly in the event that any ethical issue is brought to its attention or emerges in relation to a contribution, being bound by the provisions of the law in force on defamation, violation of copyright, copyright and plagiarism. The Management, the Editorial Committee and the Editors undertake not to disclose information relating to the contributions or authors, acquired in the exercise of the magazine's activity and to observe the copyright on the contents of what is not published.

The Author undertakes to respect the editorial rules and relative to the sending of contributions, and to guarantee that the article submitted for evaluation is unpublished, scientifically original and not proposed for publication at the same time in other journals, volumes or periodicals, unless otherwise expressly Management consent. The latter must be informed if the article proposed for publication is also intended to be published elsewhere, so that it is mentioned. The Author is also required to adequately cite the texts used following the editorial rules of the Magazine. Any co-authors must be aware of the evaluation phases of the contribution and approve the final version before its acceptance for publication. The Management or on its behalf the members of the Editorial Committee may ask the Authors, also following the evaluations expressed during the review, for all corrections and / or additions considered appropriate. Authors can express their observations or objections in this regard, which will be evaluated by the Management to decide on acceptance or not for publication. The organs of the magazine may indicate editorial changes, to ensure the uniformity of the texts and compliance with the editorial standards of the magazine. The Author undertakes not to favor and report any possible conflict of interest that affects the contents of the proposed contribution, the theses and / or interpretations supported therein. When present, the Author must indicate, in a special note, any research funding details and the Bodies involved. If an error or inaccuracy is detected, the Author will have the duty to promptly inform the Magazine and provide all the necessary information to make the necessary corrections.

When evaluating the texts proposed for publication, through the peer review procedure, the reviewers undertake to exercise their task by ensuring impartiality, professionalism in the analysis, expressing constructive recommendations and comments and which give the authors the opportunity to increase the qualitative level of research and contributions. The selected reviewer who does not feel qualified for the revision of the contribution assigned to him or who knows he is not able to carry it out within the required time frame must promptly communicate his decision to the Management, also through other bodies of the Journal, renouncing the process of revision. The auditors, both during the performance and after the conclusion of the evaluation process, are required to respect confidentiality. The contributions received for the evaluation must be treated as confidential documents and must not be disclosed, shown or discussed with anyone who is not previously authorized by the Management. Information or ideas gained through reviewing contributions should be kept confidential and should not be used for personal advantage. It will be the duty of the auditors to communicate any possible conflict of interest to the Management and to promptly abstain from evaluating the contribution."
