Plagiarism policy


Plagiarism is a significant violation of truthfulness and involves stealing intellectual property or taking credit for other individuals' work. The responsibility for plagiarism lies ultimately with the writer/writers.

Our journal rejects any material that breaks legal requirements regarding plagiarism and copyright infringement.

Recommendations for avoiding plagiarism:

  • Use quotation marks around words taken verbatim from a source
  • Change no part of quotation within the context of the sentence
  • Use single marks for a quotation within a quotation
  • Use three dots (a space and three dots) for a part of the quotation omitted.
  • Limit the use of direct quotes

Authors are responsible for obtaining copyright permission for reproducing illustrations, tables, figures taken from other authors and/or source.
