The author is obliged to reduce the similarity to an acceptable level without removing the main content of the manuscript and submit it again through the underlying profile, in this case, it will be rechecked (If requested by the author, our team can decline plagiarism to an acceptable level, in which case the author must pay $100.

Plagiarism, as a general term, includes several concepts:
- Using ideas, words, without referencing the main reference is plagiarism.
- Copying verbatim, in whole or in part, without hinting the main reference.
- Taking ideas from the main reference and changing its syntax in such a way that writing style of the corresponding author is still noticeable.
- Use of graphs, photos, or tables, in whole or in part, without reference or permission.
- If a research work is rewritten by another author with a different context so that it has a seemingly acceptable textual similarity, it is plagiarism.
- Self-plagiarism refers to the author’s use of themes that has been written in his/ or her previous manuscripts.
