Plagiarism Policy

Authors are advised to observe high standards in publication ethics. The Journal of (BJM) strictly prohibits practices such as plagiarism, fabrication, and falsification of data, as well as duplicate publication without proper citation.

In line with our commitment to upholding publication ethics, we have implemented a comprehensive policy to address the issue of high AI plagiarism. Starting from May 1st 2023, which coincides with the launch of Turnitin's AI detection capability, all manuscripts submitted for publication will be subjected to a thorough plagiarism check using Turnitin. This check will take place after submission and before the manuscripts are sent to the editor for editorial review.

Should any overlapping or similar texts be detected in the submitted manuscripts, our journal will promptly initiate an investigation. Manuscripts found to have a significant level of AI plagiarism will be considered unacceptable and may result in rejection.

By implementing this policy, we aim to ensure the originality and integrity of the research published in BJM. We encourage authors to uphold the principles of academic integrity and contribute to the advancement of knowledge in an ethical and responsible manner.
