Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism is the copying of ideas, text, data, and other creative work (e.g. tables, figures, and graphs) and presenting it as original research without proper citation. Plagiarism is a serious violation. We define plagiarism as a case in which a paper reproduces another work with at least 20% similarity and without citation. If evidence of plagiarism is found before or after acceptance or after publication of the paper, the author will be offered a chance to defend his/her paper. If the arguments are found to be unsatisfactory, the manuscript will be retracted and authors found to have been guilty of plagiarism will no longer have papers accepted for publication by journal. All the submitted manuscripts will be firstly checked by using the Turnitin program that is already available in the Northern Technical University.

Disclosure and Conflict of Interests

Researchers should reveal financial support or any other kind of support provided for them. Also, they should reveal any financial conflicts or other issues that affect the results or the interpretations of the research.

Fundamental Errors in Published Works

Researcher(s) should notify the editor or the publisher in case of misstatements in the material of their manuscripts in order to do the needed corrections in the misprinting forms. When authors discover a significant error or inaccuracy in the published research, they should inform and cooperate with the editor or the publisher of the journal in order to undo or correct their researches in the misprinted form.
