We are very strict and do not tolerate any form of plagiarism. Therefore, we provide a plagiarism check tool (Turnitin). The manuscript which is submitted to IJSR will be checked by the managing editor. We only tolerate a maximum of 20% similarity. The manuscript which has more than 20% similarities will be returned to the author.
