Plagiarism Policy

The Editorial Team of the journal will not accept any plagiarized work. Particularly:

1. Non-accurate paraphrasing of another person’s work where more than one sentence within a paragraph or section of a text has been altered or has been rearranged without appropriate attribution. Non-accurate paraphrasing is verbatim copying.

2. Reuse of the elements of another person’s work (e.g., the use of a figure, table, or paragraph without acknowledgement, references, or quotation marks) without citing the author.

3. Self-plagiarism: Authors, when submitting the manuscript at the journal’s official site, state that the work has not been previously published. If the elements of a work have been published before in other publications (including the journal WISDOM), it is incumbent on the author to attribute to their earlier work and indicate how the subsequent work differs and builds upon the results and conclusions contained in the earlier work.

It is recommended that authors use Crossref Similarity Check powered by iThenticate to check their work before submission.

Every submitted paper undergoes plagiarism detection by Grammarly Plagiarism Checker (Premium) and Crossref Similarity Check powered by iThenticate, only after which the paper is assigned for further consideration and review.  

Any detection of overlapping and similar texts in the manuscripts submitted is considered plagiarism, thus leading to the rejection of the submission.
