General Policies

Bothalia believes that the manuscript is not under consideration anywhere else, and once accepted shall not be published elsewhere in the same form, in either the same or another language, without the consent of the Editors. Manuscripts with multiple authors are reviewed assuming that all listed authors have contributed to the research and all have unanimously approved the final manuscript. Authors must secure permission from appropriate institutional review boards for use of human participants in research. Authors are responsible for obtaining copyright permissions for previously published material, including graphics and data. Author contributions found to use plagiarized or self-plagiarized material will not be accepted for publication. Articles should be written at a level accessible to readers who are non-specialists in the topic of the article themselves, but who are interested in the research. The Journal welcomes mini-reviews on topics of wide interest to investigators in the life sciences. Quantitative conclusions must be based on truly quantitative methods.
