- Intentionally copying another person's work without properly attributing it or providing necessary sources is considered plagiarism.
- Before, during, and after the publication process, the submitted manuscripts are run through an advanced plagiarism detection software called Turnitin to check for instances of plagiarism.
- When it comes to handling allegations of plagiarism within its scope, the magazine adheres to a stringent protocol. Suppose a member of the editorial board, reviewer, author, or anyone else detects even the slightest trace of plagiarism at any point before, during, or after the publication process. In that case, the writers are advised to provide the appropriate citations for the sources they used.
- An article that contains more than 15 percent plagiarized material will be swiftly rejected, and the writers will be instructed to rewrite and resubmit the document.
- The author is informed of the decision to reject the manuscript without going through the review process if it is found to contain more than 25 percent of copied material.
