Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism Policy
We use turnitin to evaluate the similarity index and then the editors decide on cases of possible plagiarism. The screening results will be submitted along with the editor's comments on the manuscript process. Authors should not use other people's words, images, or ideas without attribution. All sources should be cited at the time of use, and re-use of words should be limited and attributed or cited in the text. Manuscripts found to be plagiarised from manuscripts by other authors, whether published or unpublished, will be rejected. Published articles may need to be corrected or retracted.

The editorial board has taken the following actions:
1. Similarity Index above 40%: Article Rejected (due to poor citation and/or poor paraphrasing, the article is rejected outright, NO RESUBMITS ACCEPTED).
2. Similarity Index (21-40%): Send to author for correction (provide correct citations for all places of similarity and do good paraphrasing even if citations are already provided).
3. Similarity index less than 20%: Accepted or correction of citations may be required (correct citations should be provided for all transliterated texts).

In cases 2 and 3: The author should carefully revise the article, add necessary citations, and do a good paraphrase of the translated text. And resubmit the article with a turnitin report showing NO PLAGIARISM and less than 20% similarity.
