Universal Journal of Pharmaceutical Research (UJPR) is committed to upholding the highest standards of publication ethics and takes all possible measures against any publication malpractices. UJPR adheres strictly to internationally accepted publication ethics. All authors submitting their works to the journal for publication as original research 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. The authors acknowledge that they have disclosed all and any actual or potential conflicts of interest in their work or partial benefits associated with it. In the same manner, the UJPR is committed to objective and fair blind peer-review of the submitted for publication works and to prevent any actual or potential conflict of interests between the editorial and review personnel and the reviewed material. Any departures from the above-defined rules should be reported directly to the Editor-in-Chief, who is unequivocally committed to providing swift resolutions to any of such a type of problem. We provide high-quality and flexible information solutions to researchers. UJPR adopt the COPE guidelines on publication ethics.
