Note on plagiarism:
All authors must note that plagiarism is an unethical activity. Authors must ensure that the contents of their manuscript are not plagiarized.
Authors are required to transfer the copyright to IPCO once the manuscript is accepted. All the authors should sign the copyright form. A scanned copy of the copyright form duly filled-in and signed should be uploaded in the system in ‘Article Cycle’ page.
Manuscript Length & Processing
The length of a manuscript should be of 4 to 6 Journal pages including Figures, References, Authors’ Bios and Photos.
We expect to complete the review process within about 10 to 12 weeks. Authors will be intimated about the acceptance/rejection of the manuscript by the Editor-in-Chief. If the manuscript requires a revision, authors need to prepare a point-by-point response to the reviewers’ comments and identify these changes in the revised manuscript. Authors are given 03 – 04 weeks for submitting the revision.
