Adhering to the highest standards of integrity and transparency, the Information Sciences with Applications (ISWA) Journal diligently follows the Conflict of Interest and Disclosure Policy established by Sciences Force Publisher. Recognizing the paramount importance of impartiality in the publication process, all involved parties, including authors, reviewers, and editors, are required to adhere to this comprehensive policy. The primary objective is to identify, manage, and, when necessary, disclose potential conflicts of interest that could compromise the objectivity and integrity of the scholarly work published in ISWA Journal.

Study Sponsorship and Data Access:
Authors are strongly encouraged to avoid entering agreements with study sponsors, whether for-profit or non-profit, that impede their access to the study's data or restrict their ability to independently analyze, interpret, and publish manuscripts without limitations regarding timing or venue.

Disclosure of Conflicts of Interest:
Authors are obligated to disclose all potential conflicts of interest that might improperly influence or bias their work. These conflicts encompass both financial and non-financial relationships or interests, including but not limited to financial interests (e.g., membership, employment, consultancies, stock/share ownership, honoraria, grants, or other funding) and non-financial interests (e.g., personal or professional relationships, affiliations, personal beliefs).

Submission and Declaration Process:
Authors are required to disclose any potential conflicts of interest during the manuscript submission process via the online submission system. The corresponding author must provide a summary statement in a separate section titled “Conflicts of Interest” just before the reference list in the manuscript. This statement should encompass all collected potential conflict of interest disclosures.
"In the absence of any conflicts, authors should state: 'Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflicts of interest.'"

Verification and Handling:
The journal's editorial and review process involves a thorough examination of disclosed conflicts of interest. Any potential conflicts will be evaluated in the context of the submitted manuscript and may be communicated to reviewers for consideration during the peer-review process.

Publication of Conflicts of Interest:
Disclosure of conflicts of interest will be published alongside the manuscript to ensure transparency and allow readers to appropriately evaluate the research conducted within the pages of ISWA Journal.
