Duties of Reviewers 


The journal editors are commited to provide timely review to the authors. If a reviewer does not submit his/her report in a timely manner, the paper is immediately sent to another qualified reviewer.


Manuscript content is treated with a most confidentiality. The journal uses single and double blind process. Reviewers cannot discuss paper with any other person, including the authors.

The editors and reviewers are required to evaluate papers based on the content. The review comment must be respectful of authors. The reviewers are requires to justify their decision and recommendation.

Acknowledgement of Sources

Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has been cited by authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by  the relevant citation. A reviewer should also call to the editor’s attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.

Disclosure and conflict of interest

Priviledged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which  they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.

Duties of Authors

Reporting standards

Author should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work wherever possible.

Originality and plagiarism

In publishing only original research, JIMF is committed to deterring plagiarism, including self-plagiarism. The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted. Papers found with such problems are automatically rejected and authors are so advised.

Multiple, redundant, or concurrent publication

Authors should not concurrently submit the same manuscript for publishing to other journals. It is also expected that the author(s) will not publish redundant manuscripts, or manuscripts describing the same research in several publishing venues, after the initial manuscript has been accepted for publication. Simultaneous submission is considered unethical and is therefore unacceptable.

Acknowledgement of sources

Paper acknowledgement of the work of others is required. Author must cite publications that have led to the authors current research.

Authorship of the paper

Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the research reported in the manuscript.

All authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript.

Fundamental errors in published works

When an author discovers a significant error or innaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.

  2. Editor should protect the confidentiality of individual information. Editor ensures the anonymity of reviewers and authors.
  3. Editors have a duty to act if they suspect misconduct
