Plagiarism Policy

Authors shall submit only entirely original works, and will appropriately cite or quote the work and/or words of others. Publications that have been significant in determining the nature of the reported work should also be cited. Plagiarism includes “passing off” another’s paper as the author’s own, to copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another’s paper (without attribution), to claiming results from research conducted by others. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is intolerable.
