Home › Plagiarism

We consider plagiarism as one of the most grievous offenses in scholarship. Whether deliberate or inadvertent, the NJSA is committed to ensuring that its publications are free from copy right issues that could impinge negatively on its credibility.

Therefore, accepted manuscripts are exposed to plagiarism test in order to ascertain originality. We employ the use of turnitin for this purpose. Our policy is to drop any manuscript with a Similarity Index of more than 15 percent, irrespective of the content and depth of such manuscript.
