Responsibilities of the Journals
We adhere strictly to an embargo policy in order to prevent unauthorised access to any papers submitted to the IJTOS Journal. The manuscripts will not be available to the media or the general public until they are published. We shall do everything in our power to ensure that the reviewer keeps their word about confidentiality. IJTOS disclaims responsibility for any confidentiality violations committed by reviewers, editorial board members, or corresponding authors prior to the manuscript's publication in our journal, but will take the appropriate action to hold them accountable. The embargo policy refers to this time frame when the paper becomes visible in the current issue. Additionally, this prevents unauthorised access to or display of the articles. Additionally, this guarantees that every effort will be made to ensure that the reviewers uphold their confidentiality oath. This embargo period is in effect as of the official online publication date of the work in its complete and fully citable form. The Journal may refuse to publish any submission, including one that has been approved, if it is made available to the public or to the media before it is published due to a breach of confidence. However, the manuscript can be presented in conferences or seminars as long as our publication is properly attributed or referenced. Until the embargo period discussion of the manuscript by peer peoples, researchers , scientist , media etc is permissible , but datas or the manuscript on entirety should not be revealed by the author which could jeopardise the citation of that manuscript in our journal or any other ostensible justification for publication in our journal.
The relevant authors will be informed if the Journal decides to issue a press release or engage in additional publicity. Additionally, information on the authors will be made available to the press or made public. If the author engages in any unethical behaviour, IJTOS has the right to publicize that behavior together with the author's information, etc. Likewise, the authors are required to provide a confidentiality assurance.
Responsibilities of the Authors
The author should not make a paper, a portion of a paper, or the study's key findings available to the public or to the press before or after publication, and if they do, they must note that the full paper is currently under review by our journal. The author shall refrain from disclosing any information about the work to the general public or the press from the time of submission until rejection or publishing in the event of acceptance.
However, if the author ever gives an interview to the press or shares any information about the manuscript (research findings or the content of the manuscript in whole or in part) through another oral or written medium (in a website, forum, or blog), that information should be kept private until the Press Embargo date.
This regulation will be viewed as a breach of the Journal's embargo policy if it is not followed. Until the embargo is lifted and a listing of the "Early version View/forthcoming issue" is released, these policies will be in effect. While the writers are free to talk with their peers, they shouldn't go so far as to post the entirety of an unpublished paper—or even just a portion of it—before our magazine has published the full document. The author may then post the article anywhere, but only once the proper citation criteria are met.
Responsibilities of Media and Public
Media are expected to abide by press ethics guidelines and hold off on publishing any content prior to the deadline for the embargo's removal. Even if someone shares something to get professional advice, they should still be regarded as being subject to the embargo rules of the Journal. And any dishonouring, even by unrelated parties, will be viewed as a crime.
