Plagiarism Policy. Authors must ensure that they have written completely original work, and if the author uses citations to other works and / or words of others be sure to cite appropriately.
Multiple, Redundant or Concurrent Publication. An author should not generally publish articles describing the same research in more than one journal or major publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal at the same time is unethical and unacceptable publishing behavior. JIC will actively check plagiarism with the support of the TURNITIN app, provided that no more than 25% of the plagiarism results are returned to the author if more than the requirements.
