Plagiarism Policy

Chambers Dictionary defines a plagiarist as a kind of thief –“one who steals the thoughts or writings of others and gives them out as his [sic] own”.

When this is also used for gain – in the University to gain credits for a module or modules – then an additional dimension of dishonesty is added.

The publisher and journal have a policy of “Zero Tolerance on the Plagiarism”. We check the plagiarism issue through two methods: reviewer check and plagiarism prevention tool. All submissions will be checked by TURNITIN before being sent to reviewers.
