Benefits of Open Access
  • Open access articles are freely available via the internet and are therefore more widely visible than articles published behind subscription barriers, with some studies suggesting that on average open access articles are twice as likely to be cited.
  • Retaining copyright means that authors can reproduce and distribute their work as they choose, for example on their institution's website.
  • Open access publication benefits the scientific community by making the results of research immediately and freely available to all.

Submitting a manuscript to the International Journal of Advances in Mathematics and Statistics (IJAMS), the corresponding author, confirm that

  • All authors have provided agreements for this arrangement between the authors and the journal.
  • The manuscript is authentic, has not been formally published in any other scholarly journal, is not under consideration elsewhere, and does not violate any existing copyright or third-party rights.
  • They are the exclusive author(s) of the manuscript and possess complete authorization to finalize this agreement, ensuring that no other obligations are breached in granting rights to IJAMS.
  • The manuscript does not contain any material that is illegal, defamatory, or could result in contractual breaches, breaches of confidence, or violations of commitments to confidentiality once published. Great care has been taken to maintain the integrity of the manuscript.
  • All statements presented as facts within it are accurate, and any formulas or instructions provided will not cause harm, illness, or damage to users if followed correctly.
  • He/She and all co-authors, consent to the manuscript being licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License upon editorial acceptance for publication. Creative Commons CC BY NC 4.0 https://www.creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/deed.en means that any article published in IJAMS can be freely downloaded cited and reused with a proper attribution to the source but with no commercial use.

Research misconduct encompasses fabrication, falsification, or plagiarism in the inception, execution, or evaluation of research, as well as in the dissemination of research findings. Fraudulent authorship is also considered misconduct.

    ➢ Fabrication involves inventing data or results and documenting or presenting them as genuine.

    ➢ Falsification refers to manipulating research materials, equipment, or procedures, or altering or excluding data or results in a manner that misrepresents the research in the scholarly record.

    ➢ Plagiarism is the act of using someone else's ideas, methods, findings, or words without proper acknowledgement.

In addition, fraudulent authorship and misrepresentation constitute misconduct. This includes scenarios such as

    ➢ The omission of an individual as an author who meets the authorship criteria and actively participated in the research,

    ➢ Adding researchers, often senior figures, to the author list based on their status or influence, with the expectation of enhancing publication or impact prospects and

    ➢ Listing an individual as an author who made no substantive contribution to the manuscript, often as a form of reward, favour return, or for personal or financial gain.

Allegations related to all the above mentioned and any deviations from what has been explained in the Duties of authors/editors/reviewers will be investigated promptly, with confidentiality, equity, and neutrality upheld throughout. If a manuscript is implicated in misconduct, processing will be suspended until the case is resolved. The publication director will keep the corresponding author updated. If no misconduct is found, processing will continue. For confirmed misconduct, specific actions will be taken against the involved author.


Plagiarism refers to passing off someone else's work as one's own. It also includes duplicate publication, also known as self-plagiarism, which involves reusing substantial parts of one's own previously published work without proper citation*. Copying of ideas, text, data and other creative work (e.g. tables, figures and graphs) is the usual means of plagiarism. We define plagiarism as a case in which a paper reproduces another work with similarity and without citation.

Plagiarism detection occurs at submission and before review, with manuscripts checked for plagiarism. Depending on the extent of plagiarism detected (greater than 5%, 5-30%, or over 30%), manuscripts are handled accordingly, ranging from content revision to rejection without review. Plagiarism over 30% results in immediate rejection.

If evidence of plagiarism is found after acceptance or after publication of the paper, the Editor-in-Chief will conduct a preliminary investigation, maybe with the help of a suitable committee constituted for the purpose.

Depending upon this investigation and its outcome the author may be offered a chance for justification. 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.

*Types of plagiarism identified by IJAMS include complete plagiarism, where previously published content is reused without modification; partial plagiarism, where content is a mixture of material from different sources that has been extensively rephrased; and self-plagiarism, where an author reuses their previously published research, either in parts or in entirety.


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. Therefore, the following format of the statement is suggested:

“The author(s) used [NAME AI TOOL USED] during the preparation of this work to [REASON]. The author(s) reviewed and edited the work as necessary and take(s) full responsibility for the final version.”


IJAMS is committed to upholding the integrity of the literature and publishes Errata, Expressions of Concerns or Retraction Notices depending on the situation.


Corrections in the published research article: They are allowed provided the authors give reasonable justification. Various scenarios where a correction can be made include:

    ➢ Rectification: Authors can rectify omissions by adding a section in the current journal issue, linked to the original publication.

    ➢ Erratum: Significant errors, including factual omissions, result in an erratum issued, cross-referenced with the corrected article.

    ➢ Corrigendum: Authors notify the journal of errors, subject to approval, and associated with the corrected version.

    ➢ Retraction: Conducted following COPE guidelines, retractions are linked to the original article.

Author Name corrections: Any errors in the name of the authors or any change in the authors/s' name and affiliations will only be allowed upon reasonable request. No new author can be added to the existing list after the preparation of gallery proof of articles.

In exceptional circumstances, articles may be retracted due to ethical violations, including plagiarism, duplicate submissions, data fraud, and false authorship claims. Retraction requests, whether from authors or journal editors, undergo thorough investigation following COPE guidelines.

If an investigation warrants article retraction, a retraction notice is published in the subsequent issue. The online version of the retracted article includes the notice attached to the original, with the PDF retaining the article with a "Retracted" watermark on each page. The HTML version is removed, while metadata reflects the retraction status.


Appeal against a rejection
Should any individual desire to request the Editor or Editorial Board to reassess the rejection of a manuscript, they ought to initially reach out to the Editor via email at editor@ijams.in. Such requests are recognized as appeals, which, as per the established policy, are to be accorded lower priority compared to the regular workload. Consequently, the processing of appeals typically spans over a few weeks. It is important to note that only one appeal per manuscript is permissible. The ultimate determinations on appeals will be undertaken either by the Editorial Board Member managing the paper or the Editor.

Typically, an appeal opposing a rejection verdict on a manuscript will be entertained under the following circumstances:

    ➢ The authors can substantiate that an error affecting the final decision was made - either by a reviewer or the Editors - during the evaluation process, or significant supplementary data can be furnished, OR,

    ➢ A compelling argument for partiality in the evaluation process can be established.

Authors intending to contest an editorial verdict should forward a formal appeal letter to the journal by reaching out to the journal's editorial office. It is crucial to include the manuscript tracking number in the subject line of the email and within the body of the appeal letter.

Should an appeal prove fruitful, the authors will receive guidance on the subsequent steps to take. In instances where an appeal warrants additional examination, the Editor might opt to circulate the authors' response and the revised manuscript for further peer evaluation.

Complaints about our processes or publication ethics will in the first instance be handled by the Editor responsible for the journal. For complaints about processes, such as time taken for review, the Editor will review and respond to the complainant's concerns. This feedback will be provided to relevant stakeholders to guide improvements to processes and procedures.

For complaints about publication ethics or scientific content, the Editor will follow guidelines published by the Committee on Publication Ethics. The Editor then decides on a course of action and provides feedback to the complainant.

If the complainant remains dissatisfied with the handling of their complaint, it will be escalated to the journal's editorial and publishing management team for investigation.

All the complaints in a letter form can be sent to the email editor@ijams.in
