Plagiarism Policy

The EAJST respects intellectual property and aims to protect and promote the original work of its authors, strictly opposing any unethical act of copying or plagiarism in any form. Authors submitting articles to EAJST must adhere to ethical standards and avoid plagiarism in any form.

All manuscripts submitted for publication are cross-checked for plagiarism using appropriate software. Manuscripts found to be plagiarized during the initial stages of review are outrightly rejected and not considered for publication. If a manuscript is found to be plagiarized after publication, the Editor-in-Chief will conduct a preliminary investigation with the help of a suitable committee. If the manuscript is found to be plagiarized beyond acceptable limits, the journal will inform the author(s) that the paper has been formally retracted.
