- It is the author(s)' responsibility to ascertain that s/he has submitted an entirely original work, giving due credit, by virtue of proper citations, to the works and/or words of others where they have been used.
- Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is not acceptable by LASSIJ.
- Material quoted verbatim from the author(s)' previously published work or other sources must be placed in quotation marks and be properly cited.
- In case the manuscript has a similarity index of more than 10%, it will either be rejected or left at the discretion of the Editorial Board for the purposes of a conditional acceptance.
