Policy on Plagiarism

Plagiarism is a serious problem and is very easy to avoid. We use the Turnitin and Plagiarism Checker software for early detection of possible plagiarism. But still if there are articles found plagiarized later with the similarity number exceeds 30%, the right action will be taken. We will review articles that are suspected/claimed not to be in accordance with the publication ethics and that article may be withdrawn.
