Plagiarism Policy

Journal is strongly committed to prevent plagiarism in its published work. Re-use of text, data, figures, or images without appropriate acknowledgment or permission is considered plagiarism, as is the paraphrasing of text, concepts, and ideas. Journal is strictly against any form of Plagiarism. The authors must guarantee that they submitted entirely original work and if they have used the work and/ or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or referenced. It is advised to check the manuscript using a standard Plagiarism checking software before submitting it. If the Board finds any such matter regarding plagiarism during manuscript screening, the concerned manuscript will be rejected and the authors shall be issued a warning letter. Journal strictly follows guidelines on plagiarism stated by Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Initially after submission, all articles are screened with professional software to check for plagiarism. These are then classified into very high, moderately high, average and low. Those which are found very high are rechecked using another software and if results are found consistently high are rejected directly. Same is done with moderately high results, however in this case the article is also screened by senior editors. Average and low are processed further. At the time of last revision or final acceptance, the article is manually checked again using google search engine.

Prior to publication if the time laps between last google check and actual publication is more than 6 weeks, the article abstract and title are rechecked for plagiarism. This is done in order to prevent a duplicate publication which has been hitherto missed. Editorial also manually checks issues of plagiarism looking into which part of the article is plagiarized and how much impact it will have on the originality of the work. Despite these rigorous methods in place some slip can still happens. Editors welcome these to be brought to our notice post publication by writing email to jk_science1999@yahoo.com
