Plagiarism occurs when someone copies others’ work or someone copies content without providing the appropriate references.

Plagiarism before Publishing:

Our publisher will judge any case of plagiarism on its limits. If plagiarism is detected by the editorial board members, reviewers, editor etc., in any stage of the article process- before or after acceptance, during editing or at a page proof stage, the author(s) will be alerted and will be asked to rewrite the content or to cite the references from where the content was taken. If more than 25% of the paper is plagiarized- the article may be rejected and the author will be notified.

Plagiarism Check

All the submitted manuscripts for publication are checked for plagiarism after submission and before starting the review process.

Handling of Plagiarism

The manuscripts in which the plagiarism is detected are handled based on the extent of the plagiarism.

<5% Plagiarism: The manuscript will be given an ID and the manuscript will be sent back to theauthor for content revision.

5- 30% Plagiarism: The manuscript will not be given an ID and the manuscript is sent back to author for content revision.

>30% Plagiarism: The manuscript will be rejected without review. The authors will be advised to revise the manuscript and resubmit.

Detection of Plagiarism after publication

If plagiarism is detected after publication, the Journal will conduct an investigation. If plagiarism is confirmed, the journal’s editorial office will contact the author, authors’ institution and funding agencies. The paper containing the plagiarism will be marked on each page of the PDF. Depending on the extent of the plagiarism, the paper may also be formally retracted.


All submissions to JVBS must be original, unpublished and not under consideration for publication by any other journal. Plagiarism, including duplicate publication of the author’s work, in whole or in part without proper citation will not be tolerated by the journal. Manuscripts submitted to the journal will be checked for originality using anti-plagiarism software.
