Plagiarism Policy


Plagiarism is the "stealing or misuse of scholarly property and the significant copying of someone else’s work". Plagiarism is, when large portions of text have been copied and pasted without proper and unequivocal acknowledgement/attribution. All the submitted manuscripts are checked for plagiarism through software Turnitin following the criteria/guidelines defined by HEC & IJCME. The similarity index should be 19 or less than 19%. If the similarity index is more than 19%, the manuscript is not processed further until revised by the author. If a plagiarized manuscript is submitted multiple times, it is rejected from further processing.
