Plagiarism Policy

Policy on Plagiarism

The Editorial Board will mandatorily maintain publication ethics by avoiding plagiarism  and stick to the latest  MLA  Handbook  for documentation of all kinds of online and offline material. All articles have to be checked by the authors to minimise the quantum of plagiarism to the barest minimum of ten percent or  below ten percent on the Turnitin software. We make it mandatory that all contributors do the plagiarism check on Turnitin software and further again all the accepted articles will be put in Turnitin software  of Kannur University for cross checking the level of plagiarism. In case it is found that the plagiarism is above the permitted level of ten percent the Editor will return the article to the author for reducing the plagiarism to the stipulated level. If still the level of plagiarism remains above ten percent after re-submission the Editor reserves the right to summarily reject the article and return it to the contributor.
