Plagiarism Policy

  • Plagiarism and self-plagiarism are not allowed.
  • The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works and that if they have used the work and/or words of others, this has been appropriately cited or quoted.
  • An author should not, in general, publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.
  • Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

Working Process:

  1. Editorial Team checking manuscript on offline and online databases manually (checking proper citation and quotation);
  2. Editorial Team checking manuscript using Crossref Similarity Check, iThenticate, and Unplag;
