Human and Animal Rights

United Pharma Journals has policies which require all authors to ensure protection and appropriate use of animals and human in all forms of research. These policies will be applicable to all the United Pharma Journals.

Additionally, it is mandatory for the authors reporting experiments which involve animals and human subjects to adhere to following facets:

  1. The authors should include a statement in the “Methods” section of the article in which they have identified the concerning institutional and/or licensing committee and mention of the approval gotten from the committee for the experiments.
  2. The authors must verify that they have conducted all experiments as per relevant guidelines and regulations of the committee.
  3. If an author performs experimental studies involving client-owned animals, he/she must submit an acceptance document from the client about the best practices in animal testing. Field studies and other non-experimental research on animals have to follow institutional, national, or international guidelines, and wherever available should be approved by an appropriate ethics panel.
  4. The authors involved in research and experiments involving human subjects must confirm that consent was taken from all participants and/or their legal guardians and have been shown the final manuscript to be published.

The U.S. Public Health Service’s Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (PHS policy) and the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals outline general policies and procedures designed to make sure the human and appropriate use of live vertebrate animals in various kinds of medical research. United Pharma Journals abides by the policies and procedures set forth within the PHS Policy and therefore the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals and hence finds both to be necessary and sufficient to ensure a high standard of animal care. The researchers are expected to conduct their animal research in compliance with the PHS policy.

The Editor-In-Chief will be evaluating the submitted manuscripts on animal well-being issues and if the research is found to be in disagreement with accepted norms of using the animal and human subjects, the manuscript is susceptible to be rejected. The Editor-In-Chief also reserve the right to contact the approving committee for any additional clarification.

Researcher, please note that you have an ethical obligation towards the animals and human subjects you use for your research goals and that they must be treated them considerately and keep in mind their welfare while designing the projects.
