The unethical act of copying someone else’s ideas, results or words without acknowledging the original source or the author is known as plagiarism. The journal is strictly against any unethical act of copying or plagiarism in any form. Authors must remember that the context of their research is important when crediting previous authors for their work. All manuscripts submitted for publication to the journal are cross-checked for plagiarism using the prescribed software. When manuscripts are found to be plagiarized during the initial stages of review, they will automatically be rejected and not considered for publication in the journal. Manuscripts containing plagiarized materials are against the standards of quality, research and innovation. Authors are therefore advised to abide by the ethical standards of the journal and abstain from any form of plagiarism whatsoever.
