Plagiarism Policy

Our journal (JPPI) is committed to publishing high-quality research and maintaining the integrity of the scientific community. As such, we have a zero-tolerance policy for plagiarism.

Plagiarism is defined as the act of using someone else's work or ideas without proper citation or permission. Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to, copying text or data from another source, paraphrasing without proper attribution, and submitting someone else's work as one's own.

The authors are responsible for ensuring that their work is original and properly cited. Any manuscript found to have plagiarised content will be rejected and the author(s) may be banned from submitting future work to our journal.

To ensure that all manuscripts are original and properly cited, we use Turnitin software to check for plagiarism. Our plagiarism tolerance level is set at a maximum of 15 %. Any manuscript with a plagiarism score exceeding 15 % will be rejected and the author(s) will be notified of the violation.

In the event that plagiarism is detected after a manuscript has been published, appropriate actions will be taken, including retraction of the article and notification to the academic community.

We urge all authors to uphold ethical standards in research and writing and to adhere to our plagiarism policy to ensure the integrity and quality of research published in our journal.
