Plagiarism can occur in two forms: 1) author(s) intentionally copy someone elses work and claim it as their own, or 2) author(s) copy her or his own previously published material either in full or in part, without providing appropriate references - also called as "self-plagiarism" or "duplicate publication".

Plagiarism before publication
The editors of the MJAQS will judge any case of plagiarism on its own merits. If plagiarism is detected, either by the editors, peer reviewers or editorial staff at any stage before publication of a manuscript - before or after acceptance, during editing or at page proof stage, we will alert the author(s), asking her or him to either rewrite the text or quote the text exactly and to cite the original source. If the plagiarism is extensive - that is, if at least 25% of the original submission is plagiarized - the article may be rejected and the author's institution/employer notified.

When is plagiarism check done?
Every manuscript submitted for publication to the MJAQS is checked for plagiarism after submission and before being sent to an editor for editorial review.

How is plagiarism check done?
The MJAQS editorial staff use CrossCheck  to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. CrossCheck is a multi-publisher initiative to screen published and submitted content for originality.
