We define publication adequacy as a continuous and rigorous efforts in maintaining and enhancing the standards and quality of our journals. We provide an edge to build strong relationship between authors' interest and readers' trust in the authors.
Heighten Science endorses publication adequacy on the basis of following aspects:
a. Harmony and reliability-
The harmony in publication can be maintained only when the research is sound and carefully executed. Researchers and authors should use appropriate and proven methods of data analysis and should take collective responsibility for their work and for the content of their publications. Researchers should check their publications carefully at all stages to ensure methods and findings are reported accurately.
In order to provide optimum and reliable services, our online articles are freely available under Creative Commons Attribution License. In perpetual succession, we authenticate and validate all the journals through rigorous peer-review system.
What is Creative Commons Attribution License?
Creative Commons Attribution License is a tool that helps a creator or licensor to retain the copyright of their work while allowing others to copy, distribute, and make some uses of their work. Creative Commons License also ensures that the licensors get the credit for their work they deserve.
Researchers are transformational leaders so we expect them to present their research results honestly and without fabrication, falsification or inappropriate data manipulation. Researchers should strive to describe their methods and to present their findings clearly and unambiguously. They should also ensure that research images should not be modified in a misleading way.
We believe that any new finding always has a direct or indirect relation to ongoing or past researches. Therefore the New findings should be presented in the context of previous research. The work of others should be fairly represented. Scholarly reviews and syntheses of existing research should be complete, balanced, and should include findings regardless of whether they support the submitted manuscripts.
Authors and researchers should adhere to publication requirements that submitted work is original and has not been published elsewhere in any language. Work should not be submitted concurrently to more than one publication unless the editors have agreed to co-publication. If articles are co-published this fact should be made clear to readers. Relevant previous work and publications, both by other researchers and the authors' own, should be properly acknowledged and referenced. The primary literature should be cited where possible.
e. Authorship acknowledgement
The manuscripts submitted not only reflect a record what has been discovered but also who has made this discovery. Therefore, the authorship of research publications should accurately reflect individuals' contributions to the work and its reporting. We expect the journals editors to publish and promote accepted authorship criteria appropriate to their field; however they cannot be expected to adjudicate in authorship disputes.
Authors should follow our requirements that work is not submitted to more than one publication for consideration at the same time. Authors should inform the editor if they withdraw their work from review, or choose not to respond to reviewer comments after receiving a conditional acceptance. Authors should respond to reviewers' comments in a professional and timely manner and should respect our requests for press embargos.
