Plagiarism policy

The journal is committed to publishing entirely original work, which includes material that has not previously been published or is currently being reviewed elsewhere. To identify incidences of overlapping and similar material in submitted publications, the journal uses programs. Papers found to be copied from another author's manuscript, whether published or unpublished, will face plagiarism sanctions, and the author will be prohibited from publishing the paper in the journal for the next three years.


The author must present a completely original, own work. Any idea, word, sentence, or work should be properly cited or quoted in the paper. Publications that have influenced the character of the paper should also be referenced. Plagiarism in any form is unethical and therefore unacceptable. If any form of plagiarism is detected, the paper will be rejected and will not be accepted for future consideration. Also, the author's institution or organization will be notified.

All articles accepted for publication in the journal are checked for plagiarism. The journal uses anti-plagiarism software Turnitin.

If required, the editorial board may consult outside specialists for assistance to include additional aspects to get the optimal resolution. Depending on the type and consequences of the problem to be addressed, the Journal retains the right to share the results publicly and/or send the information to other authorized legal and administrative entities.
