Ivyspring International Publisher is dedicated to rapid dissemination of important scientific knowledge and discoveries to the global research, academic and professional community. We publish peer-reviewed scientific journals of highest quality. All journals are open-access and the contents immediately available to readers around the world. Our goal is to become a viable choice for authors, researchers and scientists to present their finest results, and to disseminate the results in the widest possible way and with high impact.
Ivyspring International Publisher is a proprietary, limited liability company located in Sydney, Australia, registered with the Australian government under registration number ACN: 126 316 032. In Ivyspring, we use our own submission system and manuscript processing system, and do our own in-house manuscript editing, xml generation, PubMed Central/doi submissions, etc., to meet professional standard. Our journals are funded by author publication fees. Our fees are clearly stated in every journal's website (in the author info pages), and authors are made fully aware of fees (if any) when making any manuscript submission.
Articles in our journals are now distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License (CC-BY license).
Authors are also encouraged to self-archive the published articles in their own or institutional websites as well as governmental websites, library websites, without permissions required.
Our journals follow the guidelines as set out in the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) on handling potential conflicts of interest of editors, authors, and reviewers. Editors-in-chief or handling editors, with the assistance of editorial board, are fully responsible for the peer-review process, decisions, and selection of articles.
There is a zero-tolerance policy towards plagiarism (including self-plagiarism) in our journals. Manuscripts are screened for plagiarism before or during publication, and if found they are rejected at any stage of processing. Other ethical issues, allegations of research misconduct or complaints are handled very seriously and investigations are carried out by the editors and/or editorial office, followed by actions such as rejection, withdrawal, or retraction of articles.
