Plagiarism & Dual Publication

IJWE follows COPE Guidelines to deal with suspected plagiarism in a submitted manuscript.  Any case reported with plagiarism will be fully investigated and the degree of copying will be checked by the editors. In case of large copied portions the author is asked to submit statement giving satisfactory explanation for the act and to remove the plagiarism and resubmit a revised manuscript to proceed with the review process.

If author’s statement will be unsatisfactory, the submission may be rejected.     

Author must avoid dual publications. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.
