The Journals covers all aspects of
practicing disciplines. Manuscripts are accepted for consideration on the
condition that they represent original material, have not been published
previously, are not being considered for publication elsewhere, and have been
approved by each author. Review articles, research papers, case reports and
letters to the editor may be submitted for publication. All authors of a
manuscript must have agreed to its submission and are responsible for its
content (initial submission and any subsequent versions), including appropriate
citations and acknowledgments, and must also have agreed that the corresponding
author has the authority to act on their behalf in all matters pertaining to
publication of the manuscript. It is the responsibility of the corresponding
author to inform the coauthors of the manuscript's status throughout the
submission, review, and publication processes. The corresponding author is
responsible for obtaining permission from both the original author and the original
publisher (i.e., the copyright owner) to reproduce or modify figures and tables
and to reproduce text (in whole or in part) from previous publications.
Manuscripts submitted to the journal must represent reports of original
research, and the original data must be available for review by the editor if
necessary. Authors who are unsure of proper English usage should have their
manuscripts checked by someone proficient in the English language. By
submission of a manuscript to the journal, the author(s) guarantee that they
have the authority to publish the work and that the manuscript, or one with
substantially the same content, was not published previously, is not being
considered for publication or published elsewhere.
Criteria of Publication
All manuscripts are considered to be
confidential and are reviewed by the editors, members of the editorial board,
or qualified reviewers. Publication of manuscripts by Journals are dependent
primarily on their validity and coherence. The authors of published articles
automatically transfer the copyright to Journals and there parent incorporation
upon formal acceptance. However, the authors reserve right to use the
information contained in the article for non-commercial purposes.
Conflicts of Interest
Authors are required to disclose
any sponsorship or funding arrangements relating to their research and all
authors should disclose any possible conflicts of interest.
policies of Consortium Publisher on peer-review, publication
ethics, plagiarism, copyrights, licenses, errata/corrections,
retraction/ withdrawal can be viewed at our Editorial Policy.
Published research information must
comply with the publication
ethics and guidelines for human studies and animal welfare regulations.
Authors should state that subjects have given their informed consent and that
the study protocol has been approved by the institute's committee on human
research. Further, they should also state that animal experiments conform to
institutional standards. This should be described in the Methods section. For
those investigators who do not have formal ethics review committees, the
principles outlined in the Declaration of
Helsinki should be followed. Editors may request that authors provide
documentation of the formal review and recommendation from the institutional
review board or ethics committee responsible for oversight of the study. ICDTD
Inc. requires authors to follow the requirements for manuscripts submitted to
Submission of Manuscripts
Manuscripts must be submitted online. That may potentially save the time, effort and proceeding.
If there is problem in submission, please write to the editorial or administration. All components of the manuscript must appear within a
single electronic file: references, figure legends and tables must appear in
the body of the manuscript.
The research or review manuscripts
submitted should be divided into the following sections,

the experimental system at hand and should not contain extensive repetition of
the Results section or reiteration of the introduction. The discussion section
should (a) reiterate the principal findings of the research, (b) explain why
those findings are important, (c) comment on methodological weaknesses of the

We accept the Vancouver (numbered) style and APA
(American Psychological Association) reference styles. The articles belong to
the medical, biology, and life sciences are required to use the Vancouver reference style (numbered style). The journals of this category are as under,
Whereas, the following journals of
social, business and technological sciences are needed to use the APA referenced
- Advanced Food and Nutritional
- Canadian Journal of Biomedical
- Journal of Applied Molecular Cell
- Journal of Applied Pharmacy
- Advanced Business and Finance
- Advanced Calculation and Analysis
- Advanced Engineering and Technology
- Advanced Geosciences
- Advanced Humanities and Social
- Journal of Experimental Physics
The Vancouver (numbered) references style should
be numbered sequentially [in square brackets] in the text and listed in the
same numerical order in the reference section. The reference numbers must be
finalized and the bibliography must be fully formatted before submission. Few examples
are given below,

APA (American Psychological

style rules to increase the ease of reading comprehension. The rules or
guidelines of this style ensure clear and consistent presentation of written

Moreover, the references must be
complete and accurate. If the number of authors exceeds six then et al.
will be used after three names (the term “et al.” should be in italics).
Date of access should be provided for online citations. Journal names should be
abbreviated according to the Index Medicus/MEDLINE. Punctuation should be
properly applied as mentioned in the examples given above. Superscript in the
in-text citations and reference section should be avoided. Abstracts,
unpublished data and personal communications (which can only be included if
prior permission has been obtained) should not be given in the references
section. The details may however appear in the footnotes. The authors are
encouraged to use a recent version of EndNote (version 5 and above) or
Reference Manager (version 10) when formatting their reference list, as this
allows references to be automatically extracted.
Consortium Publisher uses the software
to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. We
check the contents of submitted articles against the archive of periodicals, online
internet material and scientific database. The obtained similarity report highlights
the proportion or percentage of uploaded article the overlap the published contents.
Thus, we accept the overall 20% similarity of manuscript to be considered for
Moreover, the content tracking mode
ensures that manuscripts with an overall low percentage of similarity but have
a higher similarity from a single source are not ignored. The acceptable limit
for similarity of text from a single source is 5%. If the similarity level is
above 5%, the manuscript is returned to the author for paraphrasing the text
and citing the original source of the copied material.
Additionally, it is understandable
that the scholarly articles are compiled after comprehensive review of
previously published information. It’s not easy to differentiate the legitimated
and plagiarized information. However, the certain features can potentially help
to identifying different kinds of plagiarized content.
Registrations, Patient Consents and Animal Protection
The clinical studies must be
conducted according to the Declaration of Helsinki principles. All submission must comply with the guidelines of the International Committee of Medical
Journal Editors (www.icmje.org) with regard to the patient’s consent for research or
participation in a study. The editors can demand the documentation of the
formal review and recommendation from the institutional review board or ethics
committee responsible for oversight of the study.
The research studies involving the animals,
the authors should indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance
with the standards set forth in the eighth edition of Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals; published by the National Academy of Sciences, The
National Academies Press, Washington, D.C.).
