Conflict of Interest

Any financial interests, direct or indirect, or situations that may raise the issue of bias in research work, including relevant commercial or other sources of funding for the individual author(s)/associated department(s)/personal relations/direct academic competition, constitute a conflict of interest (CoI).

Author and Corresponding Author: The respective research authors are liable in order that all co-authors who have contributed to the research receive permission and consent and have their copyright form signed. It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to confirm to other co-authors whether they have any conflicts to declare and the title covering letter or title pages of the manuscript should be mentioned.

Reviewer: According to the fair publishing practices of IJEBHB, all referees should either refuse to examine a handbook if there is any potential conflict or report any conflict.

Editorial Members: All editors must report their possible conflicts of interest in compliance with editorial guidelines. If there was a possible conflict of interest, the editors would not review a document, instead the manuscript would be transmitted to another publisher.

Should any person experience conflicts of interest, any author or representative should report on the same at or, even after the manuscript has been published.

Resolution on Conflict: The manuscript shall be thoroughly examined for the validity of statements which may take up to 7-10 working days. If the alleged conflict of interest is found valid during the inquiries, the manuscript will be duly deleted from the website and removed from the various repositories and abstracting/indexing services of IJEBHB.
