“The potential for conflict of interest and bias exists when professional judgment concerning a primary interest (such as patients' welfare or the validity of research) may be influenced by a secondary interest (such as financial gain). Perceptions of conflict of interest are as important as actual conflicts of interest.”
Any interest or relationship, financial or otherwise that might be perceived as influencing an author's objectivity is considered a potential source of conflict of interest. These must be disclosed when directly relevant or directly related to the work that the authors describe in their manuscript. Potential sources of conflict of interest include, but are not limited to the following: patent or stock ownership, membership of a company board of directors, membership of an advisory board or committee for a company.

Before going to review process, all manuscripts will be checked that they are free from plagiarism practice (less than 20% similarities). If there an indication of plagiarism (higher than 20% similarities), the manuscript will instantly be rejected.Policy and Action for Plagiarism:
A) Plagiarism before Publishing
AGPE The Royal Gondwana Research Journal tries to find out the case of plagiarism on its own level. If plagiarism is detected by the editorial board member, reviewer, editor etc., in any stage of article process- before or after acceptance, during editing or at a page proof stage. We will alert the same to the author(s) and will ask them to rewrite the content or to cite the references from where the content has been taken. If more than 20% of the paper is plagiarized- the article may be rejected and the same is notified to the author..
B)What If Plagiarism Detected After Publication
If plagiarism is detected after publication, the Journals will conduct an investigation. If plagiarism is found, the competent authority of the AGPE The Royal Gondwana Research Journal will contact the author's institute and funding agencies. The paper containing the plagiarism will be marked on each page of the PDF. Depending on the extent of the plagiarism, the paper may also be formally retracted. Once we find papers associated with any plagiarism/misconduct, we will:
1. Reject the submitted manuscript or withdraw the published paper.
2. Not accept manuscripts submitted to all AGPE-RGRJ journals by the same research team within one year.
3. Inform the institution the corresponding author is affiliated with and the funder(s) about such misconduct.
4. Once the manuscript is found to have committed publication misconduct, we will immediately withdraw the published paper and as misconduct by author/authors any article processing charge has not refund in any condition.
5. As a penalty of misconduct publication/ Duplicate publication charge $ 500 (foreign authors) or Rs. 5000 (Indian authors) as compensation costs in case that a published paper is withdrawn.
The author is not allowed to withdraw submitted manuscripts, because the withdrawal is a waste of valuable resources that editors and referees spent a great deal of time processing submitted manuscript, and works invested by the publisher.
If the author still requests withdrawal of his/her manuscript when the manuscript is still in the peer-reviewing process, the author will be punished with paying $15 USD per manuscript, as a withdrawal penalty to the publisher. However, it is unethical to withdraw a submitted manuscript from one journal if accepted by another journal.
The withdrawal of the manuscript after the manuscript is accepted for publication, the author will be punished by paying $15 USD per manuscript. Withdrawal of the manuscript is only allowed after the withdrawal penalty has been fully paid to the Publisher. If the author doesn't agree to pay the penalty, the author and his/her affiliation will be blacklisted for publication in this journal. Even, his/her previously published articles will be removed from our online system.
