Special issues devoted to important topics in all the fields. We welcome papers from both academicians and practitioners on theories, business models, conceptual paradigms, academic research and consultancy projects.</p> <p>The Journal invites original papers, review articles, technical reports and short communications that have not been published or not being considered for publication elsewhere.</p> <p> </p> <h2>Journal Particulars</h2> <p><strong>Title: </strong>International Journal of Innovative Scientific Research (IJISR)<br /><strong>Frequency: </strong>Quarterly<br /><strong>ISSN: </strong>3008-5039 | <strong>ISSN-L:</strong> 3008-5039<br /><strong>Publisher: </strong>World BIOLOGICA<br /><strong>Chief Editor: </strong>Dr. Junaid Ahmad Malik<br /><strong>Copyright: </strong>IJISR<br /><strong>Starting Year: </strong>2023<br /><strong>Subject: </strong>Multidisciplinary Subjects<br /><strong>Language:</strong> English<br /><strong>Publication Format: </strong>Online<br /><strong>Publishing Model:</strong> Open Access<br /><strong>Email id: </strong><a href=""></a><br /><strong>Website: </strong><a href=""></a></p> en-US (Editor-in-Chief) (Admin [IJISR]) Fri, 30 Jun 2023 00:00:00 +0000 OJS 60 Exploring the Zenana: Ismat Chughtai and the Vision of Feminist Utopia <p>The conventional interpretation of a zenana often symbolizes male dominance over women. However, Ismat Chughtai's work, particularly her story "Lihaaf," challenges this prevailing notion and offers a different perspective. Chughtai seeks to disrupt the association of a zenana with male control and aims to provide it with a transformed meaning. While conventional views perceive a zenana as a space designed to isolate women from the outside world, Chughtai, in "Lihaaf," employs it as a microcosm that represents her own reality. This paper aims to demonstrate how Chughtai subverts the gendered nature of this space and establishes a feminist utopia within it. It explores the notion that patriarchy's inherent disparities unintentionally create opportunities for agency and generate spaces for a feminist utopia to emerge.</p> Alexandar Rufhi, Gomidhy Saroph Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Innovative Scientific Research Thu, 15 Jun 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Examining the Impact of Mindfulness Meditation on Stress and Health in College Scholars <p>A total of 50 participants were recruited, with 25 identifying themselves as regular meditators and 25 as non-meditators. All participants completed self-report measures assessing stress, well-being, mood, resilience, self-compassion, and academic performance. The results revealed significant differences between the two groups. The meditator group exhibited lower levels of stress, higher scores in well-being, improved mood, greater resilience, and higher levels of self-compassion compared to the non-meditator group. However, no significant difference was found in terms of academic performance. These results imply that practising mindfulness might be a useful strategy for undergraduates to reduce stress and improve wellbeing. Further research is needed to investigate barriers to meditation practice and determine the optimal frequency and duration of practice for maximum benefits.</p> Gemrex D.

In his renowned ballad, "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner," Coleridge skillfully explores the transformative power and ethical implications associated with the four realms of the Earth, particularly emphasizing the vital role of water. This study aims to dissect the profound significance of water and its representation in Coleridge's major work, particularly in "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner." By unraveling the hidden truths obscured by skepticism, we seek to shed light on Coleridge's supernatural techniques and innovative ideas, which employ water as a symbol of salvation. Through this exploration, Coleridge has paved the way for future generations, constructing a new platform for understanding and appreciation.</p> GD Marina, TM Jaishrin Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Innovative Scientific Research Wed, 21 Jun 2023 00:00:00 +0000 A Study on the Hematology of Golden Mahseer Tor putitora (Hamilton) in Relation to Aeromonas hydrophila <p>Present&nbsp; &nbsp;investigation deals with the haematological studies on freshwater fish Tor putitora, an economical fresh water fish, with reference to Aeromonas hydrophila infection. The haematological parameters included Total Erythrocyte Count (TEC), Total Leucocytes Count (TLC), Packed Cell Volume (PCV), Haemoglobin concentration (Hb.C), Different al Leucocyte Count (DLC), Mean corpuscular Volume (MCV), Mean Corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH) and Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin Concentration (MCHC). Thrombocytes, Lymphocytes percentage, eosinophil of infected fish decreased when compared with the healthy fish but MCV, TEC, neutrophil percentage. Monocytes of the infected fish increased when compared with the normal fish.</p> Fehmida Sultana, Samuel Sajid, Waris Jamshed Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Innovative Scientific Research Wed, 21 Jun 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Bioactive Compounds and Bioremediation Potential of Brown Algae <p>The toxic effects of heavy metal bioaccumulation in various biological systems, including humans, animals, microorganisms, and plants, pose significant concerns for environmental health and safety. Utilizing different plant materials for the synthesis of nanoparticles is regarded as an environmentally friendly approach, as it avoids the use of harmful chemicals. This review aims to enhance our understanding of the issues related to heavy metal toxicity in contaminated ecosystems and explores viable, sustainable, and eco-friendly bioremediation technologies, particularly focusing on the mechanisms of phytoremediation or heavy metals. However, it is important not to overlook the challenges, such as biosafety assessment and genetic pollution, associated with the implementation of new strategies for cleaning up heavy metal-contaminated ecosystems, considering both ecological and greener perspectives.</p> Kuntal G.

Most parents experience anxiety from time to time, but for some people, parenting anxiety can affect the quality of their life or their child's life. The regulation of emotions and behavior is crucial to the healthy early development of children, where they interact with the environment to adjust emotions, cope with frustrations and stress. Parents who are depressed and out of tune with their child's needs and emotions leave the child unsupported, left to manage the r own anger, sadness, and fear, and are left to their own immature repertoire of behaviors.</p> Dharam Aggarwal, Subhash Malhotra, Pramod Malhotra Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Innovative Scientific Research Thu, 29 Jun 2023 00:00:00 +0000
