Scope 

The Editor-in-Chief defines “the idea of interdisciplinary research as a kind of concentration to the particular area of concern or subject to evolving the value knowledge.  It is a kind of entity that is studied and analyzed in terms of an object of just a single discipline. It works to make a kind of singularity in the world which is full of a variety of branches in the field of research and education”. Following this, we encourage authors to engage themselves in an interdisciplinary discussion of topics from the broad areas listed below and apply interdisciplinary perspectives which may be applicable. We discourage submission with a singular perspective and with scholarly values. Author(s) must be sure of the high value of his/ her research contribution in the international standards and then submit it.

It was once in the UGC list but it has been excluded now. As the UGC has stated "The final UGC-approved List of Journals would be dynamic in nature that would be subject to periodic review for deletion of existing journal titles or inclusion of new journal titles based on the checklist criteria"

Special Attention to all Academicians, Universities, Academic Bodies, Institutes-

If any article or part of the article is found plagiarized or copied the author himself/herself will be responsible. Neither Editors nor Publisher will be liable to any charge of plagiarism. Though we take utmost care to select original, unpublished and unplagiarized articles yet sometimes we are reported such irresponsible vagaries from the authors' side. Our journal is open access and UGC approved that is why academicians and researchers keep on delving to get the reliable material for their research work so we follow and also suggest following academic responsibility otherwise all our endeavour will go in the ditch.
