Academic Publishing uses Crossref Similarity Check (powered by iThenticate) for detecting plagiarism. All submissions are screened. Any plagiarism (fabrication or falsification of data) is strictly unacceptable, including duplicate publication without proper citations.

If plagiarism is detected, we will follow the flowcharts of COPE for how to handle cases of potential plagiarism in a submitted manuscript or a published article. We will inform all the authors and their institutions about the case.
