Authors are responsible for ensuring that their works are unique, and that they fully acknowledge the source of any content which is not entirely the authors’ own. The journal will check articles for plagiarism (i.e. reproducing any content without attribution and permission) using Crosscheck/iThenticate and considers the inclusion of plagiarised content to be misconduct by the authors.
Articles that have been previously published in another language are acceptable for consideration by the journal, but the submission must clearly say where they have been previously published and in which language. Permission from the previous publisher is also required.
