About the Journal


UCP Journal of Science and Technology (UCP-JST) is a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed, open-access journal devoted to publishing research in the field of science and technology, including biological, physical, and life sciences. The journal publishes research articles, review papers, and conference proceedings in the core areas of biochemistry, biotechnology, microbiology, health, and pharmaceutical sciences, zoology, mathematics, and physics. UCP-JST encourages interdisciplinary research engaging academia and industry to produce practical solutions to industrial challenges. 

Peer Review Policy

The peer-review method for the UCP-JST is double-blind. Reviewers aren't given any information about the authors, including their identities or associations, and review reports are similarly sent to authors anonymously. The benefit of a double-blind peer-review approach is that it assures that submissions are evaluated solely on their quality and content. It allows reviewers to evaluate submissions objectively and determine whether the data is original, genuine, and significant.

In most cases, the submissions are peer-reviewed along with at least 2 specialists. They thoroughly evaluate the manuscript not only to see the quality of the content, and research but also to check the duplication of previous scientific papers in references. If the paper is recommended for consideration for publishing in assessment reports by the assessors, the editorial staff will take the final selection.

Conflict of Interest Policy

A conflict of interest can occur when there is a financial, commercial, legal, or professional relationship with other organizations, or with the people working who could influence research.

Full disclosure is required when you submit your paper to the UCP-JST. The editor will primarily use this information to inform his or her editorial decisions. They can publish such disclosures to assist readers in evaluating the article. Moreover, the editor may decide not to publish your article on the basis of any declared conflict. You can declare the conflict of interest on your cover letter or on the manuscript submission form in the journal’s online peer-review system.

If necessary, please describe any potential conflicts of interest in a cover letter. In addition, you should fully acknowledge all funding sources supporting the work.

Ethical policy

UCP-JST observes thorough ethical guidelines for distributing articles. Our Publication and review policies are aligned with Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) guidelines.

In order to ensure the research integrity of our publications, and by so doing to ensure that we achieve our aim of providing scholars with superior service, UCP-JST works closely with authors and editors to promote adherence to the core principles of publication ethics as articulated by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). We encourage further exploration of COPE’s resources on the website (https://publicationethics.org/).

All manuscripts, archival materials, and supporting files (to include but not limited to interviews, images, data, infographics, audio and video, and facsimiles), whether submitted to a peer-reviewed publication (book series, journal, or major reference work) or a primary source online collection, are expected to conform to the standards of ethical behavior promulgated by COPE.

We encourage you to direct questions and concerns to info.ucp-jst@ucp.edu.pk. For detailed discussion of and an abundance of resources to assist in handling specific cases of research misconduct and violations of publication ethics, please visit the COPE website.

Authors (s) are exclusively answerable for the creativity and unwavering quality of the exploration and should go along the guidelines.

  • Authors with unique research should introduce an exact record of the work performed and the outcomes, trailed by an objective conversation about the meaning of the work.
  • The original copy ought to contain adequate details and references to allow others to reproduce the results.
  • False or purposely incorrect proclamations represent dishonest behavior and are unacceptable.
  • Authors might be approached to give the raw information of their study along with the original copy for a publication review.
  • The information ought to be openly accessible if practicable, given that the secrecy of the members can be safeguarded and lawful rights concerning exclusive information don't obstruct their accessibility.
  • Research data and results of the study will be given provided that they are genuine and solid.
  • Authors ought to guarantee that they have submitted authentic research, assuming they have utilized the work or potential expressions of others, which has been properly cited.
  • Likewise, publications that have been persuasive in deciding the idea of the research work in the manuscript ought to be cited.
  • Various forms of plagiarism such as passing off (presenting other’s work as author’s own), replicating or re-wording significant pieces of another's paper (without acknowledgment). Literary theft in the entirety of its structures establishes dishonest distributing conduct and is prohibited.
  • Information sources and supporting proof should be cited precisely in the text and reference segment.
  • The findings of featured research issues should be unique.
  • Any original copy of the manuscript will not be submitted if it is published or submitted in another Journal. Accommodation of a manuscript simultaneously to more than one journal is exploitative distributing conduct and inadmissible.
  • All people who made significant contributions ought to be mentioned in the article (like specialized help, composing and altering help, and general help); however, who do not meet the original rules should not be acknowledged as an author, yet ought to be recognized in the "Acknowledgements" area after their composed consent to be named as been acquired.
  • The corresponding author ought to guarantee that every co-author (as indicated by the above definition) has been mentioned in the authors' list. Moreover, they will confirm that all co-authors have seen and endorsed the last form of the manuscript and agreed to its submission and publication.
  • The confidentiality of covertly received data (from the discussion, correspondence, or conversation with outsiders) should not be utilized or detailed without consent from the source.
  • Authors shouldn’t utilize data acquired by offering a secret type of assistance, for example, refereeing articles or award applications except if they have gotten the unequivocal composed consent of the author(s) regarding the work associated with these sources.
  • There will be no abuse of copyrights in the text, tables, designs, and recipes of the article.
  • Authors are obliged to take an interest in the peer-review process and coordinate completely by answering instantly to editors' solicitations for raw information, explanations, and verification of morals endorsement, patient assents, and copyright consents.
  • The conclusive remarks at the end of each research article are by the authors that don't recommend the perspectives of the publication board. Hence, no commitment is forced in the UCP-JST article group in this unique situation.
