Papers submitted to Golden Light Publishing® journals will be screened for plagiarism using Similarity Check / iThenticate plagiarism detection tools. Editorial management of the journal will immediately reject papers leading to plagiarism or self-plagiarism.
The authors are responsible for the content, language, and originality of the manuscript they submitted. The authors should assure that they have composed their original works entirely, and if they have used other authors' studies and/or words, this has been conveniently cited or quoted. Plagiarism takes many forms varying from “passing off” someone´s paper as the author's paper to copying or paraphrasing important parts of someone´s paper (without attribution), to claiming results from research performed by others.
Plagiarism in all its forms comprises unethical publishing behaviour and is inadmissible. Before submitting a manuscript, it is strongly recommended to check in terms of similarity by iThenticate or exploring plagiarism.
