LMRJ has Zero tolerance for plagerism. Similarity index of each submitted manuscript is checked and varified by the editorial board members as soon as it is submitted, then before sending it to the publication process after review. At any stage it should be <19% with no single source similarity of 5%.
For a clear concept Plagiarism is an unethical act of copying someone else’s prior ideas, processes, results or words without explicit acknowledgement of the original author and source. Self-plagiarism occurs when an author utilizes large part of his/her own previously published work without using appropriate references. This can range from getting the same manuscript published in multiple journals to modifying a previously published manuscript with some new data.
LMRJ is strictly against any unethical act of copying or plagiarising in any form. Manuscripts found to be plagiarized at any stage of review and publication are out-rightly rejected and not considered for publication in the journal.
