Plagiarism Policy

      Plagiarism in an unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. 

     Plagiarism is the copying of ideas, text, data, direct downloads from the internet and other creative work (e.g., figures, graphs, tables, equations, or illustrations) and presenting them as original research without proper citation.

     If any component of plagiarism is found, before, during or after the publication process, the extent of plagiarism will be evaluated.

     If an article plagiarized to more than 25% similarity with online published articles and without proper citation, the author for the article in question is contacted with supporting evidence and asked for a response.

   If there are sufficient evidence to plagiarism, the manuscript will be retracted, and the author is sanctioned from publishing papers for a period of time to be determined by the editorial board.

   All papers submitted for publication will be checked through a proprietary plagiarism detection software to ensure that all articles published in the journal complies with the plagiarism policy.
