Plagiarism is the copying of ideas, text, data and other creative work, and presenting it as original research of author without proper citation and acknowledgement. Manuscripts containing plagiarised content are against the standards of quality, research and innovation. Hence, all authors submitting their work to Lex Humanitariae: Journal for a Change are expected to abide by ethical standards and abstain from plagiarism, in any form.
By submitting their work to the Journal, the author(s) declare and certify that:
- The manuscript submitted for publication is the original work of the author(s) and has neither been published before nor is currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.
- The author(s) have duly acknowledged the work/idea of any other person (if used) from any source in their research and the same has been mentioned in footnotes/references with proper citation.
Lex Humanitariae: Journal for a Change uses registered plagiarism check software to ensure the originality of the submission and it reserves the right to reject any submission which contains plagiarized content.
If any claim of plagiarism arises before the Journal, after publication of the paper, the author will be offered a chance to defend his/her paper. If the arguments are found to be unsatisfactory, the manuscript will be retracted and removed from the publication.
Note: In case of any dispute regarding the plagiarised content, the Journal shall not be liable for the same.
