Guidelines for Authors
All submissions to this journal must be made on the OJS. The articles submitted to this journal should neither be published nor be submitted elsewhere for publication while it is being processed by the CU Journal of Non-Linear Fluid Mechanics. The research should be original and must not be a replica or imitation of any other work and the presentation of the work must be accurate along with a significant scholarly discussion. The submitted papers must possess all the relevant information concerning the article including the funding, grants, involvement of organisations etc. Any fraudulent, suspicious or inaccurate claims or proposals made in the research will be regarded as an unethical approach and hence such an article will not be accepted for publication.
It is the sole responsibility of the authors to make sure that the work is entirely written by them. If in case they have used the words and/or works of any other authors then this has to be appropriately cited or quoted. This also includes the citation of the works that have motivated or influenced the present research to uphold the integrity of the scholarly record. This is an important step in acknowledging the intellectual thoughts of the other authors and avoiding any possible plagiarism. All the articles submitted to the CU Journal of Non-Linear Fluid Mechanics will undergo a Turnitin check to avoid plagiarism in all its forms to prevent any possible unethical behaviour. Any submission found to have more than 20% similarity (Turnitin report) shall be unconditionally rejected.
All those who have made substantial contributions to the research or the study conducted must be listed as co-authors and the others who have actively participated in substantive aspects of the paper must be acknowledged in the article. Conception, design, execution, interpretation, computational support, and manuscript preparation can be considered as significant contributions whereas services such as language editing, and writing assistance must be reported in the acknowledgement. Furthermore, the corresponding author must ensure that all the co-authors listed in the manuscript have approved and agreed to the submission of the study for publication. The order of the author and the list of authors cannot be changed once the submission has been made and it remains the same as the original submission. Every co-author listed in the manuscript is accountable for the integrity of the work and is responsible for the same.
In recent times, there has been a tremendous increase in the use of AI tools in all possible fields. Hence, we urge the authors to limit the use of AI tools to enhance the language used in the research to provide a better readability atmosphere to the readers. It should be noted that the use of AI tools to analyse and draw insights from the data as part of the research process is inappropriate and is considered unethical. If AI or AI-assisted tools are used in creating the content of the research, then it is the responsibility of all the authors listed to carefully review the content and make necessary changes as the authors are ultimately responsible and accountable for the content. The use of AI tools must be declared in the manuscript as it supports the transparency between the editors, reviewers, authors, and readers. However, the AI or AI-assisted tools can neither be listed as an author nor be cited as a source.
