Copyright Infringement

Copyright infringements of intellectual properties are serious in nature and Foundation of Computer Science (FCS) is committed to protect the IP rights of not only the FCS authors but any researcher whose rights are infringed upon.
Any claim of copyright infringement should be addressed to the Editor of the concerned FCS journal bearing the subject line "Copyright Infringement". The FCS email software will automatically prioritize the email for immediate action.
The claim must be sufficed by documented evidence supporting the same version as being published or copyrighted or patented by the aggrieved party before the date of publication of the concerned FCS journal article. On receipt of the claim, the Board of the concerned FCS journal, if found deemed, shall inform the authors to provide an explanation; the discussion of which shall be transparent to both parties.
The Board reserves the sole rights to decide the validity of any such claims. After deliberation, if the claim is found justified, the concerned manuscript will be removed from all the journal archives and servers. Any subsequent print copies of the concerned issue will not contain the article. In case, the changes required are minimal such as inclusion of references, the authors will be intimated to do the required amendments according to the article correction policies of the concerned FCS journal. The alternative version shall undergo peer-review as any other general submission and shall be published in the same issue(number) of the concerned volume.
Any claim on copyright will be addressed with the highest priority. A revert mail will be dispatched within 3 working days provided the claim is supported with documented evidence.
