|Aims and Objectives
The “International Journal of Agriculture and Biosciences ” (IJAB) is a Quarterly Journal (January-March; April-June; July-September; October-December) published by the Unique Scientific Publishers . This peer-reviewed and open-access journal publishes high-quality original research articles, review articles, short communications, and clinical articles/case reports in the area of Agriculture, Veterinary/Animal Sciences and allied disciplines. The IJAB publishes articles/manuscripts that contribute significantly to knowledge in the agricultural and biological sciences field. Preference is given to the original articles that develop new concepts or experimental approaches and are not merely repositories of scientific data.
Disclaimer by the Editor/Publisher
The contents of the manuscript published in the IJAB are the opinions of the authors. Consequently, neither the Editor nor the Publisher (Unique Scientific Publishers ) is responsible for the views expressed/deduced or for plagiarism committed by the author (s).
Manuscript Reviewing Policy
It is being clarified that all submissions to IJAB are subjected to the peer-review process. IJAB follows a double-blind peer-review process. Manuscripts are sent for obtaining advice on individual manuscripts from reviewers’ experts in the field who are not part of the journal’s editorial staff. IJAB management neither guarantees short or very short peer review process times nor acceptance on submission of the manuscript. For more clarity read the following points about peer reviewing process:
Authors are encouraged to go through the Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statements mentioned by the management of IJAB. These ethical guidelines are developed keeping the standards defined by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE ). Authors must write a Bioethical statement at the start of the Materials and Methods section. Ethics Committee or Bioethics/Biosecurity Committee/Institutional Bioethics Committee approval is mandatory when human or animal/bird subjects/samples are involved in the research. In addition to this approval, authors must have written consent from patients (or relatives/guardians) before submitting the manuscript to the IJAB. It is taken for granted that the anonymity of the personals involved in research will be maintained.
All animal experiments should comply with the ARRIVE guidelines and should be carried out in accordance with the UK Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 and associated guidelines (UK Animal Act 1986 ) or EU Directive 2010/63/EU on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes (EU Directive 2010) , or the US Public Health Service Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals and, as applicable, the Animal Welfare Act .
