• Full acknowledgement of funding sources and disclosure of any conflicts of interest has been made.
Any failure to abide by these standards will result in rejection of the manuscript and may lead to a suspension of future publication privileges in IJAT.

Authorship guidelines: To prevent the devaluation of authorship, all authors must follow these guidelines:
• Authorship is based solely on significant scientific and intellectual contribution to the research.
• All authors have approved the paper before submission.
• All individuals deserving authorship have been included.
• The first and corresponding author take responsibility for the entire manuscript.

Review policy. Reviewers must follow the confidentiality regulations detailed in the instructions for reviewers. Reviewers must not:

Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism may be defined as the uncredited use of the words or concepts of others in the papers. Using one’s own published research without proper citation is called selfplagiarism. Both forms of plagiarism are unacceptable. Plagiarism is dishonest and undermines the scientific method and the advancement of science which is based on the steady accumulation and evaluation of new ideas. It also deprives the originator of recognition for their contribution by failing to cite it; since citation of one’s work is a metric used for academic advancement, plagiarism harms the careers of fellow scientists.

IJAT uses the program of Plagiarism to examine a manuscript under evaluation for evidence of plagiarism. The editors will evaluate the results of the analysis to determine whether the manuscript complies with the IJAT

Publication Ethics Policy
Authors must identify text reused from previously published materials with an appropriate citation.
