Before going to review process, all manuscripts will be checked that they are free from plagiarism practice using "Turnitin" software. If there an indication of plagiarism, the manuscript will instantly be rejected. 

Editorial board has passed the following actions:

  1. Similarity Index above 25 percent: Article Rejected (due to poor citation and/or poor paraphrasing, article outright rejected, no resubmission accepted).
  2. Similarity Index (15-25 percent): Send to the author for improvement (provide correct citations to all places of similarity and do good paraphrasing even if the citation is provided).
  3. Similarity index Less than 15 percent: Accepted or citation improvement may be required (proper citations must be provided to all outsourced texts).
