The Research Mosaic (RM) adheres to ethical guidelines outlined by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). Both the publisher and the editorial board of RM affirm their commitment to ensuring ethical considerations throughout the submission, review, conflict of interest disclosure, and publication process, as emphasized in the COPE declaration on publication ethics and conflict of interest. Additionally, RM follows ethical guidelines recommended by the Higher Education Commission Pakistan (HEC), which serve as necessary benchmarks for quality assurance in journals within the social sciences, management sciences, arts, and humanities categories.
