Ethical Statement

Publication Policy Agreement

As part of the submission process of the articles submitted to Al-Irfan, the authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all
of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these  guidelines.

  • The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another
    journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to
    the Editor).
  • The submission file is in Open Office, Microsoft Word, or RTF document file
  • The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than
    underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables
    are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • The text adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the
    Author Guidelines.
  • Furthermore, the manuscript contains nothing that is abusive, defamatory,
    libelous, obscene, fraudulent, or illegal.
  • If I send the same article to any other publisher within or outside the country, I
    will let you know in anticipation which will be considered as my voluntary
    withdrawal from the Al-Irfan.
