Fractional analysis has become a more popular topic in recent years as researchers working in applied mathematics and other areas of science have found numerios applications of it. Several new derivative and integral operators have been defined and various properties of these operators have been established. These new operators in the fractional analysis have attracted the attention of mathematicians working in the field of inequality and with the help of these new operators, the inequality theory has moved towards a new trend. Numerous inequalities have been studied with the caputo derivative, which is one of the most used operators in fractional analysis. In this context, we have established some new integral inequalities for \( m \)-convex functions by using \( \psi \)-Caputo derivatives and some basic definitions and techniques in this article. We have also given some special cases of our results for convexity.
