Ethical standards for publication exist to ensure high-quality scientific publications, public trust in scientific findings, and that people receive credit for their ideas.
Taking the ideas and work of others without giving them credit is unfair and dishonest. Copying even one sentence from someone else’s manuscript, or even one of your own that has previously been published, without proper citation is considered plagiarism-use your own words instead.

Review Articles / Original Research Article / Short Communication
Open Submissions, Indexed, and Peer Reviewed
A manuscript will be reviewed for possible publication with the understanding that it is being submitted to International Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research alone at that point in time and has not been published anywhere, simultaneously submitted, or already accepted for publication elsewhere. The journal expects that authors would authorize one of them to correspond with the Journal for all matters related to the manuscript. All manuscripts received are duly acknowledged. On submission, editor review all submitted manuscripts initially for suitability for formal review. Manuscripts with insufficient originality, serious scientific or technical flaws, or lack of a significant message, if not prepared as per journals instructions are rejected before proceeding for formal peer-review. Manuscripts that are unlikely to be of interest to the International Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research readers are also liable to be rejected at this stage itself.
Manuscripts that are found suitable for publication in the International Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research are sent to expert reviewers. The reviewers should not be affiliated with the same institutes as the contributor/s. Every manuscript is finally reviewed by the Editor of the journal, who based on the comments from the reviewers takes a final decision on the manuscript. The comments and suggestions received from reviewers are conveyed to the corresponding author. If required, the author is requested to provide a point by point response to reviewers’ comments and submit a revised version of the manuscript. This process is repeated till reviewers and editors are satisfied with the manuscript.
Manuscripts accepted for publication are copy edited for grammar, punctuation, print style, and format. Page proofs are sent to the corresponding author. The corresponding author is expected to return the corrected proofs within two days. It may not be possible to incorporate corrections received after that period. The whole process of submission of the manuscript to the final decision and sending and receiving proofs is completed online.
Peer Review Process:
Scientific development requires the exchange and discussion of data and ideas. International Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research (IJPSR) is a unique publication dedicated to presenting the results of scientific and technical research from Science and Pharmacy discipline in an open-access background. The peer review of each article concentrates on objective and technical concerns to determine whether the research has been sufficiently well conceived, well executed, and well described to justify inclusion in the scientific evidence. Then, after publication, all papers are opened up for interactive discussions and evaluation in which the whole scientific and research community can be involved. Unlike many journals which attempt to use the peer review process to determine whether or not an article reaches the level of ‘importance’ required by a given journal, International Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research (IJPSR) uses peer review to determine whether a paper is technically sound and worthy of inclusion in the published scientific record. Once the work is published in IJPSR, the broader community is then able to discuss and estimate the significance of the articles.
IJPSR staff does not copyedit the text of accepted manuscripts; it is, therefore, important for the work, as presented, to be intelligible. Perfect, stylish English is not essential, but the language must be clear and unambiguous. If the language of a paper is poor, IJPSR reviewer should recommend that authors seek independent editorial help before submission of a revision. Poor presentation and language is a justifiable reason for rejection.
Please note the authors when submitting an article, all authors are asked to indicate that they have not submitted a related manuscript for publication elsewhere. If similar or related work has been submitted elsewhere, then a copy must be included with the article submitted. Reviewers will be asked to comment on the overlap between related submissions.
Before submitting your manuscript, please collect information on the sources of funding that have supported the work. When you submit, you will be required to provide a statement in the online submission system or manuscript text declaring the funding sources, and also stating the role of the study sponsor(s), if any, in study design; collection, analysis, and interpretation of data; writing of the paper; and decision to submit it for publication. Please also include the following statement, if pertinent: “The funders had no role in study design, data collection, and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript.” If this statement is not correct, you must amend it as needed.
