Plagiarism Policy

As a reputable scientific journal, we have a strict plagiarism policy in place to uphold the highest standards of academic integrity and ensure the originality of the research published. Plagiarism, in any form, is considered a serious ethical violation and will not be tolerated.

Our plagiarism policy aims to:

  1. Prevent Plagiarism: We expect authors to submit original work that has not been published elsewhere or submitted to multiple publications simultaneously. Authors should appropriately acknowledge and cite all sources used in their research.

  2. Detect Plagiarism: We employ advanced plagiarism detection tools and software to thoroughly screen all submitted manuscripts. This includes checking for similarities with previously published works, both within our journal and in other sources.

  3. Educate Authors: We strive to educate authors on the importance of academic integrity and proper citation practices. Our guidelines and instructions for authors explicitly address the issue of plagiarism, providing clear instructions on how to avoid it.

  4. Investigate Suspected Cases: If plagiarism is suspected in a submitted manuscript, our editorial team conducts a thorough investigation. This may involve using plagiarism detection software, examining similarities with other works, and contacting the corresponding author for clarification or additional information.

  5. Take Appropriate Actions: In the event that plagiarism is detected, we take swift and appropriate actions. This may include rejecting the manuscript, contacting the author's institution or employer, informing relevant academic bodies or organizations, and imposing sanctions or penalties on the authors.

  6. Maintain Confidentiality: Throughout the plagiarism investigation process, we ensure the confidentiality of all parties involved, including the authors and the reviewers. We handle all cases with the utmost discretion and professionalism.

By implementing a comprehensive plagiarism policy, we are committed to upholding the highest standards of academic integrity and promoting original and ethical research. Our aim is to foster a scholarly environment where ideas and knowledge can be shared and built upon with trust and integrity.
