Journal's Approach to Plagiarism

The journal takes a firm stance against any unethical behavior, such as copying or plagiarism. Plagiarism is identified when substantial parts of a manuscript are taken from previously published sources. To ensure the authenticity of all submissions, we employ iThenticate/Turnitin software to detect plagiarism. Plagiarism encompasses copying another person's ideas, processes, results, or words without proper acknowledgment. Self-plagiarism occurs when an author reuses their own previously published work without appropriate references. If plagiarism is detected during the review process, the manuscript will be rejected outright. In cases of post-publication plagiarism, the Editor-in-Chief will investigate, potentially with the help of a dedicated committee. If plagiarism is found to be beyond acceptable limits, the author's institution and relevant funding agency will be informed. In instances of misconduct, a statement will be published online, linked to the original paper, acknowledging the plagiarism and providing a reference to the copied material. Additionally, each page of the PDF with plagiarized content will be marked, and depending on the severity, the paper may be retracted formally.

Peer Review Protocol

This journal uses a double-blind peer review system to maintain the integrity and quality of the review process. Two independent academic experts typically review papers in line with the journal's objectives. Policy experts may also be invited to provide additional reviews. Reviewers are expected to follow COPE ethical guidelines and report any misconduct to the editorial office.

Policy Overview: Article Processing Charges and Discounts

The International Journal of convergence in healthcare (IJCIH) is a non-profit organization that depends on Article Processing Charges (APCs) from authors to sustain its operations and uphold the journal's quality. Domestic authors are charged INR 5000 per article, while foreign authors are required to pay USD 40. These fees help maintain the journal's standards and contribute to its overall functioning. As an author, if you fall under specific categories such as being a student, lacking funding, hailing from a developing country, or holding an extraordinary status, you may request a discount or waived charges for the publication. To do so, kindly address a letter to the Editor-in-Chief, clearly stating your reasons for seeking a discount. Remember that the publisher's decision on this matter is final and binding.

Protocol for Withdrawing Manuscript

Our manuscript withdrawal policy aims to maintain publication integrity and fairness. Authors can withdraw before editorial decision, but post-review requests may need approval. Improper withdrawals may result in retraction notices to uphold journal standards.
