Policy against Plagiarism

The editorial board of Journal of Modeling in Engineering takes the necessary measures to examine the incoming papers on their originality, reliability of contained information and correct use of citations. The Editorial board of the Journal acknowledges that plagiarism is unacceptable and therefore establishes the following policies that state-specific actions, if plagiarism is identified in a manuscript submitted for publication in Journal of Modeling in Engineering.

If the author(s) does not respond within a reasonable length of time or does not make the necessary adjustments, the editor of other journals (for Multiple submission) and the author's respective institution are notified and the authors’ name are blacklisted and they will not be able to submit manuscripts to Journal of Modeling in Engineering.

If plagiarism is reported by someone after publication of an article, the case will be investigated by the Journal’s Editorial Board, and if the plagiarized content is noticeable, the article will be withdrawn from the archive of our journal and the author's respective institution are notified and the authors’ name are blacklisted.
