Authors must ensure that they have written an entirely original work. If the author uses the work and words of other people, then the work and words must be quoted or quoted appropriately.
An author may only generally publish manuscripts describing the same research in one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal simultaneously is unethical and unacceptable publishing behavior.
Proper acknowledgment of the work of others should always be given. Authors should cite influential publications in determining the nature of the work reported.
The editorial board will screen all accepted manuscripts through a plagiarism process. The JISTR editor uses Turnitin for delivery.
