>> Publication of all the articles will be dependent primarily on their novelty, relevance and coherence, as judged by peer reviewers.

>> IJSCDBD is proposed to be an open access journal (free to read online). Therefore, article processing fee will be contributed by authors.

>> The authors of published articles in IJSCDBD will automatically transfer the copyright to the publisher upon formal acceptance of their articles. However, the authors will reserve the right to use extracted transcripts from the article for non commercial purposes.

>> The manuscripts will be reviewed for possible publication with the understanding that they are being submitted to only IJSCDBD and have not been published, simultaneously submitted or already accepted for publication elsewhere.

>> The Editors will review all submitted manuscripts initially. Manuscripts with insufficient originality, plagiarism, serious scientific and technical flaws or lack of a significant message will be rejected.

>> All manuscripts received will be duly acknowledged. Manuscripts will be sent to two or more expert reviewers without revealing the identity of the authors to the reviewers except review articles.

>> Final decision on a manuscript will be taken based on the comments from the reviewers. The authors will be informed about the reviewers' comments and acceptance or rejection of manuscript. The average submission to decision time will be about three months.

>> Articles accepted in IJSCDBD will not be allowed for withdrawal in any circumstances.
