Plagiarism Statement JPRSM
JPRSM publishes articles containing original research. The text of the article should not contain previously published original scientific results.

Plagiarism implies the use of another author's work without permission or acknowledgment. A manuscript that is less than 80% originality will be rejected by the editor before peer-reviewed.
Also, JPRSM publisher, while defining plagiarism, takes into account the following definitions:
Copying the work word by word, in general, or in parts, without permission or acknowledgment of the source. Literal copying is clearly plagiarism and is easily detected by plagiarism software.
Replicating a substantial part of the work without permission and confirmation of the source. In determining what is "substantial", both the quantity and the quality of the copied content are relevant. Quality is measured by the relative value of copied text comparing to the whole text. Where the essence of the work was copied, even not a very big part of it, plagiarism is identified.
Copying may be made without literal replicating, used in the original work. This type of copying is known as paraphrasing and it may be the most difficult type of plagiarism to reveal.
The plagiarism presence in the manuscript is unacceptable and will lead to immediate rejection of the manuscript by the editorial board along with possible sanctions against authors.
