The publisher assigns a DOI when your article is published and available electronically.

We strongly believe that the increased use and integration of ORCID iDs will be beneficial for the whole research community.

Plagiarism Policy

Journal subscribes to the Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing. All authors must abide by the standards outlined in the journal’s ethical guidelines. In particular, please note the need to avoid duplicate submission, plagiarism and self-plagiarism. If you are unsure what is meant by plagiarism read read Best Practice Guidelines on Publishing Ethics. Self-Plagiarism is defined as a type of plagiarism in which the writer republishes a work in its entirety or reuses portions of a previously written text while authoring a new work. The key component of this malpractice is that the new paper makes no reference to the previous publication. Papers are checked for evidence of plagiarism. If such evidence is found the paper is rejected and no further submissions will be accepted.
All articles submitted to the JOURNAL will be checked using the "iThenticate" plagiarism detection software.
A specific process is followed to manage a case of plagiarism. The JOURNAL follows the guidelines contained in the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) flowcharts.
