As a scholarly journal committed to upholding a strong reputation, we have a strict policy against plagiarism to maintain high standards of academic integrity and ensure the authenticity of published research. Plagiarism, in any form, is considered a serious ethical violation and will not be tolerated.

This policy is implemented with the following objectives:

Preventing Plagiarism: We expect authors to submit original work that has not been previously published elsewhere or submitted to multiple publications simultaneously. Authors must properly acknowledge and cite all sources used in their research.

Detecting Plagiarism: We employ advanced plagiarism detection tools and software to meticulously screen all submitted manuscripts. This includes checking for similarities with previously published works, both within our journal and other sources.

Educating Authors: We strive to educate authors about the significance of academic integrity and proper citation practices. Our guidelines and instructions for authors explicitly address plagiarism concerns, providing clear guidance on how to avoid it.

Investigating Suspected Cases: If there are allegations of plagiarism in a submitted manuscript, our editorial team conducts a thorough investigation. This may involve using plagiarism detection software, examining similarities with other works, and reaching out to the corresponding author for clarification or additional information.

Taking Appropriate Action: If plagiarism is detected, we will take swift and appropriate action. This could include rejecting the manuscript, contacting the author's institution or employer, notifying relevant academic bodies or organizations, and imposing sanctions or penalties on the author.

Maintaining Confidentiality: Throughout the plagiarism investigation process, we ensure the confidentiality of all parties involved, including authors and reviewers. We handle all cases with great care and professionalism.

By enforcing a comprehensive plagiarism policy, we are committed to maintaining high standards of academic integrity and promoting original and ethical research. Our goal is to create an academic environment where ideas and knowledge can be shared and built upon with trust and integrity.
