Science Text Publishers (STP) is mainly focus on providing high quality articles to the scientific world and upholds the publication ethics. We strongly expect the authors will show integrity towards their work and adhere to publication ethics.

Some authors request withdrawal of their manuscript while it is under the process or published. This may cause the waste of resources and valuable effort made by editorial board members, reviewers and editorial staff.
