Plagiarism and self-plagiarism are strictly prohibited:
Authors are responsible for ensuring the complete originality of their work. If they have incorporated the ideas or verbiage of others, proper citation or quotation is mandatory.
In general, authors should refrain from publishing research that significantly overlaps with previously published work in multiple journals or primary sources. Simultaneously submitting the same manuscript to multiple journals is considered unethical and unacceptable.
It is essential to acknowledge the influence of other authors by appropriately citing their influential publications, which have shaped the nature of the reported work.
The Editorial Team performs a meticulous manual check of the manuscript on both offline and online databases, focusing on proper citation and quotation.
Once a manuscript clears this initial examination, it undergoes a plagiarism check using Turnitin before being sent for peer review. The acceptable similarity index for plagiarism checks is set below 15%.
