- The submission file is in OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file format.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.

Open Access/Subscription: The journal uses the hybrid model approach where the author can choose their article after acceptance to be open access or not. The open-access article processing fee is $300 and is nonrefundable. If you choose to publish your article based on the "Subscription" model, only the abstract will be accessible through the journal website.
Registration and/or Subscription Fees may be waived for low-income countries (https://data.worldbank.org/country/XM ) or based on special cases (email us at [email protected]).

Repetition of submission and publishing
- PLOMS journals accept only original content, i.e., unpublished papers.
- Manuscripts submitted to PLOMS journals must be withdrawn before being submitted elsewhere.
- Authors who have publications accepted elsewhere may face sanctions.
To submit a paper based on previously published or under review work, authors must reference the prior publications and explain how their submission differs from their earlier work. The authors are responsible for seeking permission from the copyright holder to reuse their own figures or large portions of text.
PLOMS journals will accept expanded versions of conference papers if they are explicitly referenced, addressed in the previous edition, substantial additional material, and all relevant rights are acquired. Duplicate publishing of the same or very identical paper may result in retraction and sanctions for the authors.
- It is not allowed to boost the number of citations to a specific author's work or to other research articles. Upon discovery of such behavior, the paper will be rejected.
- Editors and reviewers must not ask authors to cite their work. The EIC will remove the journal's reviewer and/or associate editor.
Fabrication and Dishonesty
discovered fabricated articles of falsification of the results would be retracted, and authors will face sanction.
Authorship and acknowledgments
All authors must have contributed significantly to the research article. Submissions from anyone other than an author will be ignored.
Conflicts of interest

"The author(s) declares that there is no conflict of interest with the publication of this paper,"
- Declared conflicts of interest will be reviewed by the editor and reviewers.
- Any funding has to be reported in the paper.

PLOMS PUBLISHER JOURNALS - PLAGIARISM
PLOMS publisher will assess any incident of plagiarism on its limits. Suppose an editorial board member, reviewer, editor, etc., detects plagiarism before or after acceptance or during editing. In that case, the associate editor will notify the authors and ask them to modify the content or cite the sources. If more than 25% of the material is plagiarized, the article may be rejected, and the author may be informed according to the EIC decision.
All articles submitted for publication are screened for plagiarism before review.
Manuscripts with plagiarism are addressed depending on the level of plagiarism.
- 5% Plagiarism: The paper is assigned an ID and submitted to the author for modification.
- 5- 30% Plagiarism: The paper is returned to the author for modification.
- 30% percent Plagiarism: Manuscript is rejected. The authors should rewrite and resubmit their work.
The Journals will investigate plagiarism found after publication. An institution and funding agencies will be notified if plagiarism is identified.
Self-plagiarism is a problem. A copyrighted work is self-plagiarized when reused exactly or almost verbatim without citing the original source. A past publication by the author (e.g., in conference proceedings) is not considered self-plagiarism if a clear reference is provided to the earlier publication. The reused material does not need quote marks, but the source must be credited.
