A conflict of interest arises when an individual or organization possesses a connection, whether personal or otherwise, that may compromise or disrupt professional objectivity or decision-making in matters associated with that connection. A conflict of interest arises when there is a concrete relationship present, or when the potential for a relationship can be perceived. In both scenarios, journal Editors, Associate Editors, members of the Editorial Board, authors, and reviewers must disclose any Conflicts of Interest, whether they are actual or perceived, to ensure that necessary measures are implemented. When submitting a paper to IJRMSS you must declare any conflict of interest either in your cover letter or in your manuscript under declaration section.

Research involving human or animal subjects typically necessitates ethical approval from an established body within the authors' institution. Discrepancies in ethical approval requirements may exist across different countries, prompting editors to consider either adhering to the author's country regulations or enforcing the ethical standards of their own country. Generally, ethical standards observed at the research site are preferred. All research articles should explicitly mention the ethical approval received, with a notation if no approval was necessary. Case reports and review articles usually do not warrant ethical approval. All researchers must adhere to ethical guidelines. Editors may reject manuscripts suspected of ethical violations or contact relevant authorities. More on ethical approvals. (hyperlink to Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement)

Informed consent
In research involving human subjects, informed consent is mandatory, with declarations required in the manuscript. Explicit written consent is necessary for any individual materials in manuscripts, including images, videos, or information. If participants are deceased, consent must be obtained from their next of kin. Documentation should be available to Editors upon request, with confidentiality assured. Declarations regarding adherence to guidelines and ethics committee approval or exemption must be included in the manuscript. Editors reserve the right to decline manuscripts involving animal research that do not meet established standards, with communication with ethics committees for clarification if needed.

Whether intentional or not, plagiarism is a serious violation. Plagiarism is the copying of ideas, text, data and other creative work (e.g. tables, figures and graphs) and presenting it as original research without proper citation. We define plagiarism as a case in which a paper reproduces another work with similarity and without citation. If evidence of plagiarism is found before/after acceptance or after publication of the paper, the author will be offered a chance for rebuttal. If the arguments are not found to be satisfactory, the manuscript will be retracted. All the articles will be checked through Turnitin Software before the publication of the journal.

Digital preservation aims to ensure continuous access to digital information through archiving electronic content, abstracting/indexing services, and author self-archiving. We do our best to provide high-quality metadata for digital archiving purposes. All our articles maintain good metadata and they are captured by the Google Scholar search engine. They are also available in the form of PDFs and readers can easily download and read the content of papers from our website. Yet, authors are encouraged to upload their articles on personal and institutional websites after publication.

It is journal policy not to have advertising as a source of financing.

If AI tools are used in manuscript writing, the authors must declare it in the Materials and Methods or write a declaration at the end of the paper before References. The declaration must state which AI tool was used and the reason.
