Screening for Plagiarism
All work in the manuscript should be avoided of any plagiarism, falsification, fabrications, or omission of significant material.
Authors are expected to explicitly cite others' work and ideas, even if the work or ideas are not quoted verbatim or paraphrased. This standard applies whether the previous work is published, unpublished, or electronically available. Failure to properly cite the work of others may constitute plagiarism. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable. JHBS applies a minimum standard of similarity score of the manuscript under 20%. If the manuscript performs above 20%, the article should be revised or rejected. JHBS applies a screening for plagiarism using Turnitin.
