Plagiarism Policy for Publication

Plagiarism Policy for Publication
The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others, that this has been appropriately cited or quoted. Plagiarism takes many forms, from 'passing off' another's paper as the author's own paper, to copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another's paper (without attribution), to claiming results from research conducted by others. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.

The journal has policy to screen every article for similarity index by using Turnitin. The overall similarity index should be less than 18%, and a single source should not be more than 4%.

Ethical and policy for publication
It is the ethical responsibility of The Discourse (TD) to publish original research work of the authors and at the same time the respected authors are also required to send their original research work for publication as plagiarized work will not be considered for publication in any case.

The authors need to ensure that the paper submitted to TD are not published anywhere or not in consideration for publication by some their prestigious body of research.
