Editorial Process


Author is a significant entity of the whole publishing process as he/she is the person that puts forth generous attempts in the origination, perception, structuring and the appearance of the ultimate result as a of the final outcome as a manuscript for submission/ publication. This involves tests, clinical preliminaries, data collection through experimental and observation methods for analysis and interpretation. SOA firmly believes in respecting the human, creature and ecological rights while directing examinations and gathering information and anticipates that the authors should respect the equivalent. Author is solely responsible for violations if any and SOA expects a declaration to this extent that the study did not violate any national or the universal laws identified with human, creature and the environment

All the submitted original copies must include a declaration stating that the study submitted to be considered for publication has no financial and commercial conflict of interest. Editors and the reviewers must also make a statement to this effect that they have executed their functions fair-mindedly as commentators and chiefs with no contention of individual financial and commercial interests

Plagiarism and copyright

Any manuscript submitted to a SOA journal must be unique and must not be under consideration by any other journal. SOA Publications checks each article for plagiarism and take action against cases of publication offense. SOA endorses ICMJE policies in relation to overlapping publications. Replication of content from the authors’ own previous publications is also not acceptable.

SOA Publications ensure that its journals do not publish material that infringes copyright or includes defamatory content. Manuscripts containing material containing material that encroaches copyrights and possesses potentially defamatory will be rejected.


SOA pays attention to all claims of potential misconduct. In cases of suspected research or publication misconduct, it might be essential for the  Editors to contact and share manuscripts with third parties.
