The KSVJPHS e-JOURNAL is dedicated to publishing only original material. The journal staff has a policy of screening for plagiarism. All articles in this publication are original: the content (either in full or in part) in each article has not been knowingly republished without specific citation to the original release.
KSVJPHS e-JOURNAL uses authenticate software to detect submissions that overlap with published and submitted manuscripts. Editors can see our Similarity Check page for more information on how to interpret these reports.
Manuscripts that are found to have been plagiarized from a manuscript by other authors, whether published or unpublished, will be rejected and the authors may incur sanctions. Any published articles may need to be corrected or retracted.
If any manuscript is found to be plagiarized, immediate action will be taken, which will include and not limited to the following:
- Retraction of paper in question, from online system, review, and from all other processing.
- Black listing of concerned author(s) in question.
- Rejection of all other manuscripts submitted by the author(s) in question.
- Reporting of the issue to the concerned authorities, including the authors' institution.
Note: KSVJPHS e-JOURNAL encourages the submission of original articles by authors. Acts of plagiarism will not be condoled by the journals. Submitted work if discovered to be plagiarized will be withdrawn from the journal's website and legal action may be taken against such author if deemed necessary.
