International Journal of Scientific Research and Reviews (IJSRR) is an open access peer reviewed research journal that publishes articles in the field of Science, Commerce & Arts. It is an international journal to encourage research publication to research scholars, academicians, professionals and students engaged in their respective field of Accountancy, Agriculture, Allied sciences, Arts and Humanities, Banking ,Biology, Biotechnology, Botany, Business Management, Chemistry, Commerce, Computer Science, Economics, Education, Engineering, English Literature, Finance, Forestry, Human Resource, Information Technology, Knowledge Management, Management, Marketing, Mathematics, Medical, Nursing, Pharmacy, Physics, Psychology, Social Sciences. The journal also provides an international forum to disseminate their knowledge. Our mission is to advance research by working to develop and maintain competence, ethics and integrity and the highest professional standards in the specialty for the benefit of the public. The Faculty seeks, through its activities, to bring about an improvement in research of the public. IJSRR serves an intellectual audience that is interested in the latest research coming out of universities and industries around the world. The journal publishes research developments and disseminates them to an international audience. The journal welcomes publications of high quality papers. Original research papers, reviews and high quality technical notes are invited for publications.

Research Article: Full papers are complete reports of original research of 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.

The authors are requested to prepare their manuscripts as per the instructions/specifications given below.

Plagiarism is a serious issue around the world in the arena of manuscript writing. Plagiarism means “the unauthorized use or close imitation of the language andthoughts of another author and the representation of the one's own original work”.

The IJSRR Journal is committed to upholding the highest standards of publication ethics. All authors submitting their works to the IJSRR journal for publication as original articles attest that the submitted works represent their authors’ contributions and have not been copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other works.
