Plagiarism:

Each Article for publication is checked by licensed Plagiarism software checker DOCOLOC, GERMANY. The maximum Plagiarism limit for an article excluding references of the text is 10%. Authors must be aware that attempts to pass off the work, words, or ideas of another as one’s own is regarded as unethical. Authors should also note that presenting text and figures of previously published work without reference is considered as self-plagiarism.
Plagiarism includes directly copying others’ work, copying substantial amounts/elements of another work, and also paraphrasing another work without due credit.
All authors must take care to cite and acknowledge all works that have influenced or been used to produce the submitted manuscript, including previous works by the author themselves.
To minimize the occurrence of plagiarism, JMCMS enlists the use of CrossCheck to randomly check submitted manuscripts against a database of works.

Publication Procedure:

After submission of an  Article Author/s may find the status of the paper on the website of the journal within one week. The article will be sent to 3 Reviewers : (A) Spelling and Grammar mistake checking. (B) To peer Reviewers 2nd & 3rd for checking the quality of the Article (C) If there is a difference of opinion between 2nd & 3rd Reviewers the article will be sent to the 4th reviewer to take final decisions regarding the quality of the paper. An average time 4 weeks will be required to conclude the Reviewing process. All the reviewer’s reports will be placed in a meeting of the editorial board within one week. After the final decision of the editorial board acceptance letters will be issued by the Chief Editor of the Journal to the successful Authors for publication. 2 Weeks Average time will be required for publication after the final decision of the Editorial Board. Average 8 weeks will be required between submission and publication of an article.

Peer Review Policy

Journal of Mechanics of Continua and Mathematical Sciences (JMCMS) is having ISSN 0973-8975 (Print), and ISSN 2454-7190 (online) monthly international journal, is published by the Institute of Mechanics of Continua and Mathematical Sciences (IMCMS), Kolkata (W.B.), India since the year 2006.

Reviewers play a central role in scholarly publishing. Journal uses a double-blind peer-review process, which means that both the reviewer(s) and author(s) identities are concealed from the reviewer(s), and vice versa, throughout the review process. This means that the reviewer(s) of the paper won’t get to know the identity of the author(s), and the author(s) won’t get to know the identity of the reviewer(s). Peer review helps validate research, establish a method by which it can be evaluated, and increase networking possibilities within research communities. Despite criticisms, peer review is still the only widely accepted method for research validation.

All submitted papers will be reviewed by a double-blind peer review process, which may take a minimum of 01 to 04 weeks from the date of submission. We are advising all the author(s), do not submit the same paper to the multiple journals. Author(s) should wait for the review status of the paper.

Journal is committed to prompt evaluation and publication of entirely accepted papers. To maintain a high-quality publication, all submissions undergo a rigorous review process. Characteristics of the peer review process are as follows:

  • Simultaneous submissions of the same manuscript to different journals will not be tolerated.
  • Manuscripts with contents outside the scope will not be considered for review.
  • Papers will be refereed by at least 3 or 4 experts (reviewers) as suggested by the editorial board. 
  • Also, Editors will have the option of seeking additional reviews when needed.
  • The authors will be informed when Editors decide further review is required. All publication decisions are made by the journal’s Chief Editor on the basis of the referees’ reports (reviewers report).
  • Authors of papers that are not accepted are notified promptly.
  • All submitted manuscripts are treated as confidential documents. All submitted papers will be reviewed by the double-blind review process.
  • All manuscripts submitted for publication in the journal cross-checked for plagiarism software. Manuscripts found to be plagiarized during the initial stages of review are out-rightly rejected and not considered for publication in the journal.
  • In case if a manuscript is found to be plagiarized (see plagiarism policy) after publication, the Chief Editor will conduct a preliminary investigation, maybe with the help of a suitable committee constituted for the purpose. If the manuscript is found to be plagiarized beyond the acceptable limits, the journal will contact the author’s Institute / College / University and Funding Agency, if any.

Prior publication

Your submission may be similar to, or an update of, one previously published article by you. If this is the case, your manuscript must be a minimum of 90% different from the previous article and you must cite it as a reference.
Your present submission should not have been published, or be under peer review, elsewhere (dual submission). If this is discovered, it will be rejected and we will not consider further work from you for two years.

Article Processing Charges(APC):

All articles published in the Open Access journal, JOURNAL OF MECHANICS OF CONTINUA AND MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES is not free of cost but the article submission process is free of cost. Article-processing charges provide free access to the full text, maximizing the exposure of the author’s research results to readers and also to cover securing inclusion in Crossref and Crossref- cited-linking, peer review, copy editing, long term archiving, and journal management. The authors are requested to pay Rs.8400.00 or 120$ (equivalent / Approx) For papers over 15 pages according to our journal format, an extra charge of Rs.350.00, or 5$ (equivalent / Approx) per article page has to be paid. We accept payment in Indian currency only. The extra amount required for Fund Transfer has to be borne by the Author/s only. Article-processing charges should be paid after receiving the acceptance letter only. Article Processing Charge once paid is non-refundable. The decision taken by the Executive Committee of the Institute of Mechanics of Continua and Mathematical Sciences is final.
If an article is found to be a very high-quality article the Cheif-Editor can waive publication charges partially or completely on the basis of the decision of the editorial board.
Note that many nations and private research funding organizations and universities explicitly cover APC for an article from different funded research projects.

All work that has been used in the article presented, including the author(s)’ own previous publications should be acknowledged, reference, and cited. If any personal communications (conversations, correspondence, etc) are referred to or used in the manuscript, the author must seek written permission from the source to use. If an article reproduces research material, tables, images,  the author must seek permission to use that material and fully acknowledge the owner and/or copyright owner. The authors should refer to the permission guidelines for authors for further information.
 

Report to us immediately regarding the following points :

1. If you can download content without any barriers such as installations etc., it is likely that you have discovered a case of piracy. Get in touch with the JMCMS editorial team immediately.
2. Peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing networks (torrents) need to be differentiated: they are not run by one host but by a network of private computers. Though they rarely present a threat to journal content, you should be extremely cautious.
3. Downloading content automatically means uploading content from your PC. This can cause legal problems. We strongly recommend to avoid it. Don’t install sharing clients such as “Utorrent” or others.
4.JMCMS links from P2P networks cannot be deactivated. But when detected, the individual file-sharer will be sued.
JMCMS will put all sorts of efforts to target illegal download files and supports, new developments, and initiatives to prevent journal piracy. If you are a JMCMS author and have encountered illegal versions of your JMCMS, please get in touch with the JMCMS editorial team and help us to protect your rights.
