IJOHMN has published scientific scholarly manuscripts from authors of all over the globe. We understand that authors from different countries follow different writing styles. To provide ease to the authors we have not had a strict writing style, perhaps we need basic citation style from authors. No matter which citation style you follow as the most citation styles often require the same type of data though they are just arranged in a different way. The foremost rule is that all Works Cited /References must have a mention or correlate with in-text Citation in the manuscript body.
The authors are requested to follow the below-mentioned author’s guidelines:

Use of images:
As we ethically and legally support only plagiarism-free material and contents of the article, we are equally concerned about the quality of the images. We do encourage our authors to use only original images with full copyright holdings. If you do not want to spend money on images, then use royalty-free images. The images should be original, alteration free and free from any kind of software manipulation. All the material (contents, images, data, and tables) used in the article must be plagiarism free and should also be free from any copyright issues. We strictly advise our authors and readers not to use the infringed material of any kind, which may cause any legal issue or problem in the future.
Copyright issues can only be raised against the use of copyrighted content, images or the content is not cited properly. As a publishing house, we have a policy not to use the copyrighted contents without the owner's permission. We suggest our authors to search and download images from the sites below-mentioned. They have millions of copyright-free images that may be used. You can even use images from Wikipedia if necessary.
