Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism is not acceptable in JSPAE submissions. Plagiarized content will not be considered for publication. If plagiarism is identified, we will follow COPE guidelines.

The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others, that this has been appropriately cited or quoted. 

All work in the paper should be free of any plagiarism:

Plagiarism will be checked for each manuscript at the initial stage and final stages.  At any stage, if we find plagiarized content above our limit, the manuscript will be rejected directly. 

The journal adheres to the plagiarism policy and does not exceed the tolerance limit of 19%.

If the editor detects the element of plagiarism in the manuscript, the editor will handle it as follows

0  - 19% Plagiarism: The manuscript will be given an ID and the manuscript is sent to the reviewers.

19 - 25% Plagiarism: The manuscript will not be given an ID and the manuscript is sent back to the author for content revision.

> 25 % Plagiarism: The manuscript will be rejected without review. The authors are advised to revise the manuscript and resubmit the manuscript.

Note that self-plagiarism does not apply to publications based on the author's own previous work in conference proceedings, however, the source must be cited by the author(s).
