Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism is defined as the unethical act of copying someone else's original concepts, methods, output, or language without giving due credit to the original author or source. The act of copying text from another article is strictly prohibited.

When a writer uses a significant amount of their own previously published writing without properly attributing it to others, it is called self-plagiarism. The range of practices under question includes both the publication of the same manuscript in multiple publications and the insertion of new data into a previously published manuscript.

Using Turnitin/ithenticate software, every article submitted for publication through Avestina Research Assist is thoroughly examined for plagiarism. Early on in the review process, manuscripts that are found to contain plagiarism are immediately rejected and declared ineligible for publishing in the journal.
