Plagiarism Policy



Plagiarism Policy

- Plagiarism is the copying of ideas, text, data and other creative work and presenting it as original research without proper citation. We define plagiarism as a case in which a paper reproduces another work with at least 25% similarity and without citation.

- We check each submission for plagiarism with dedicated software at www.ithenticate.com, to prevent such unethical practices.
- If evidence of plagiarism is found before/after acceptance or after publication of the paper, the author will be offered a chance for rebuttal. If the arguments are not found to be satisfactory, the manuscript will be retracted and the author sanctioned from publishing papers for a period to be determined by the responsible Editor(s).
