Plagiarism is a serious violation.

We define plagiarism as a condition in which a paper reproduces another work with at least 20% similarity and without citation.
If any evidence of plagiarism is found before the paper is accepted or after it is published, the author will be offered an opportunity to object. If the arguments are not satisfactory, the paper will be withdrawn and the author will be sanctioned from publishing the papers for a period to be determined by the editorial board.
