Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement
By submitting a manuscript to IJLSI, the author(s) warrant that the manuscript is their own, original work and that it has neither been published previously nor is currently being considered for publication elsewhere. They also warrant that the sources of any ideas and/or words in the manuscript that are not their own have been properly attributed through appropriate citations and/or quotes. When an author submits a manuscript, it becomes the responsibility of the author to not only describe the entire work in complete detail, but also make sure the paper has not been submitted elsewhere for consideration. This practice is a redundant behaviour and is against the principles of publication and might lead the author to face serious consequences. The authors are also liable to disclose all information that has been used from other sources and/or are not the original idea of the authors. All authors are bound to submit a duly signed copyright form, failing which a manuscript (even accepted by our panel of reviewers) shall not be published. This allows the author(s) to retain the copyright, but also allows others to freely copy, distribute, and display the copyrighted work, and derivative works based upon it, under certain specified conditions. IJLSI strictly condemns all plagiarised work and does not entertain any such content in its publication. All manuscripts submitted at IJLSI are scanned under registered plagiarism software and the report of the same is also provided to all authors and reviewers for their perusal. IJLSI holds the right to reject any manuscript received which contains any plagiarised content. Authors may please take note that providing citations might not necessarily eradicate plagiarism.
