Plagiarism Screening

All our journals are members of CrossCheck’s plagiarism detection initiative and use plagiarism detection software. If plagiarism is identified, the COPE guidelines on plagiarism will be followed.

We subscribe fully to the  COPE code of conduct and best practice for journal editors ensuring that our editors are accountable for everything published in our journals. Readers will always be informed about how the research is funded and our relationships with authors, reviewers and editorial board members will be influenced by COPE.
