Publication Ethics/Journal Statement/Malpractice Statement
Manuscript submissions are checked with anti-plagiarism software for exact or near-exact matches in the public domain to satisfy the Editor that the submitted manuscript has not been plagiarised. However, when authors submit their manuscripts for consideration in the Journal, they declare that their work is not plagiarised.
Plagiarism takes place when one author deliberately uses another’s work without permission, credit, or acknowledgment. Authors must always remember that accepting the work of others is dominant. Authors should always place their work in the context of the advancement of the field, and acknowledge the findings of the research.
