Hi, we have implemented prev/next articles on every article of our website.

Is this a good practice for Google SEO or not. Kindly advise.. Thanks!

It's really impossible for anyone not familiar with a site to say how one factor might affect SEO.

The good news is that since you've already implemented it you should see for yourself exactly what effects it might have.

Let us know.

Yes It's really good for your website because user can read previous and next articles which will reduce your website bounce rate. Users will be able to stay more time on your website which is really good.

will reduce your website bounce rate.

So what? Dwell time will still be the same. One of my sites is a 1 pager (with AJAX) with 100% bounce rate... this has no negative impact.

No they won't. Dwell time will be the same (apart from extra page load time).

Basically paginated content is one article (one page) and can be confirmed so by reading Google using the correct markup such as the "rel" attribute: [support.google.com...]
