Plagiarism is the copying of ideas, text, data, and other creative work (e.g. figures, graphs, and tables) and presenting it as original research without proper citation. Separate from the issue of plagiarism is the need for authors to obtain permission to reuse previously published work (even if properly cited) from the holder of the copyright (which is typically not the author).
It is crucial that editors and reviewers be informed by the authors when any portion of a paper is based heavily on previous work, even if this work has been written by one or more of the authors of the paper. It is the responsibility of the author not only to cite the previous work, including their own but to provide an indication of the extent to which a paper depends on this work.
Manuscripts submitted to publications must not be concurrently submitted elsewhere and should be withdrawn prior to any further submissions. Authors whose articles are discovered to have been simultaneously submitted elsewhere may face the consequence of being blacklisted for a minimum duration of one year. Regarding duplicate submission JMCMS follows COPE’s Guidelines for Duplicate submission
