Originality and Plagiarism

The authors must ensure that they have written entirely original works, and, if the authors have used/copied the work and/or words of others, authors must ensure that this work has been appropriately acknowledged, cited, and quoted.  As a special policy, if authors use others' tables and figures without modification, they must warrant they have permission to do so.  Else, all such tables must be significantly modified and the work must be appropriately acknowledged, cited, and referenced.

All articles are checked for similarity and possible plagiarism using iThenticate from Turnitin. Articles with high similarity percentages are returned to authors for rectification till the similarity reaches an acceptable level. In addition, the Match Overview and All Sources reports provided by iThenticate are returned to the authors for reference and use.
