Publication Ethics

International Journal of Advance Research in Computer Science and Management Studies (IJARCSMS) has been introduced to give an opportunity for expressing refined and innovative ideas in Computer Science and Management field. It is our humble endeavour to provide a springboard to the upcoming specialists and give a chance to know about the latest in the sphere of research and knowledge. We have taken a small step and we hope that with the active co-operation of like-minded scholars, we shall be able to serve the society with our humble efforts. This journal was conceived with this noble intention in view.

IJARCSMS is a peer reviewed, open access monthly International Journal, included in the International Serial Directories as well as number of other International directories, which provide instant, worldwide and barrier-free access to the full-text of all published manuscripts to all interested readers in the best interests of the research community.

IJARCSMS: International Journal of Advance Research in Computer Science and Management Studies will immediately reject papers leading to plagiarism or self-plagiarism.

B). All manuscripts submitted will be checked for plagiarism (copying text or results from other sources) and self-plagiarism (duplicating substantial parts of authors' own published work without giving the appropriate references) using the CrossCheck database. Plagiarism is not tolerated. If plagiarism is discovered postpublication, we will follow our guidance outlined in the Corrections and retractions section.
