Plagiarism in any form is not accepted and if found, it is notified to all the stakeholders and necessary actions will be taken and will incur plagiarism penalty. Corrected articles will be verified once again to ensure that it does not have plagiarism issues.


Duplicate Submission or  redundant publication:


Multiple submissions are considered to be a serious academic misbehavior. Even when a publication fee is paid, it wastes the time and work of the editors and other stakeholders, and contributes to the problem it is intended to solve, the slow speed of editorial review. Scientific articles that are found to have been under review in other journal publishers, or to be published elsewhere, will incur duplicate submission penalties. The penalty will be decided by the Publication Ethics Committee (PEC). If contributors have used their already published work, or work that is currently under review, as the basis for a submitted work, they are required to quote / cite the previous work and indicate how their submitted work  offers novel contributions beyond those of the previous work.

It is important to list everyone who made a significant scientific contribution, including students, lecturers, professors, laboratory assistants & technicians.
