Ethical Policy

The ethical policies for "Global International Research Thoughts" aimed at guiding the conduct of all parties involved in the publication process (authors, editors, reviewers, and the publisher), are designed to uphold the highest standards of integrity and ethical behavior. 

1. Responsibilities of Authors
Originality and Plagiarism: Authors must ensure that their manuscripts are entirely original works. Any use of work and/or words of others must be appropriately cited or quoted. Plagiarism in any form is unacceptable and unethical.
Multiple, Redundant, or Concurrent Publication: Authors should not submit manuscripts describing essentially the same research to more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently is unethical and unacceptable.
Acknowledgment of Sources: Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

2. Responsibilities of Reviewers
Confidentiality: Reviewers must keep all manuscripts received confidential, discussing them only with the editorial staff as necessary.
Objectivity: The review process should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Reviewers should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.
Disclosure and Conflict of Interest: Reviewers should not review manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.

3. Responsibilities of Editors
Fair Play: Manuscripts shall be evaluated for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.
Confidentiality: The editor and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate.
Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest: Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in an editor's own research without the express written consent of the author.

4. Publication Decisions
The editor is responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published, based on the validation of the work in question, its importance to researchers and readers, and the reviewers' comments.

5. Reporting Standards
Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed, followed by an objective discussion of its significance. The underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper.

6. Data Access and Retention
Authors may be asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such data, if practicable, and should in any event be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication.

7. Ethical Oversight
If the research work involves chemicals, humans, animals, procedures or equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify these in the manuscript.

Adherence to these ethical policies is crucial for maintaining the quality and integrity of the journal. Any deviations from these policies may lead to the application of sanctions against the involved parties, including, but not limited to, the retraction of articles, the imposition of publication bans, and the notification of professional bodies or institutions.
