INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHOR

 

The International Journal of Interdisciplinary Research in Science Society and Culture(IJIRSSC) is an open access journal that provides rapid publication of research paper in all areas of the subject.

MANUSCRIPT CATEGORIES :

Research Article: Full papers of original research and high scientific quality that have not previously been published. Full paper contains all experimental details. New, significant, innovative and original findings are suitable as research papers.


Communications: Short Communications are short reports of preliminary research findings and findings must be of great significance and urgency, and must contribute to the development or further development of an important area of research. A short Experimental section may be included. It includes preliminary data or studies that did not provide enough information for a Research paper.


Reviews: Reviews are summaries of significant recent research work and new developments from the research group of the principal author. The main part of the review should be a comprehensive but critical analysis of recent (last three to five years) developments, current problems, and future directions.

Therefore I request to the all our author(s) please adopt the holistic & pragmatic approach to design the manuscript of interest. Hence IJSRR will not be responsible for further action on Plagiarism issue. The author will be solely responsible for plagiarism issue.
