Once a manuscript is submitted to Journal, the editorial office conducts a preliminary check with respect to plagiarism. The authors should ensure that they write the entire manuscript themselves, and if the authors have used the research results and/or words of others it has to be appropriately cited or quoted.
Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Plagiarism and self-plagiarism are not allowed, and they will be dealt with according to the COPE guidelines
All the submitted manuscripts will be checked for potential plagiarism by iThenticate Plagiarism Detection Software.
If a published manuscript, which passed the initial plagiarism check, subsequently found to be plagiarized will be subjected to ICMJE’s policy of publication of correction, republication or retraction depending on the extent of misconduct.
