Policy of Screening for Plagiarism

Manuscripts submitted to Lex Publica must be original and not be considered by any other journal. Manuscripts submitted to Lex Publica will first be screened for similarity checking using a double cross-check plagiarism system, either manually by checking citations and proper citations or using software such as Turnitin and iThenticate. Manuscripts found to have a percentage of similarity index of more than 20% will be rejected. Authors must strictly avoid, for example: borrowing another author’s language verbatim but not placing it in quotation marks or quoting it properly; using other people’s ideas without explicitly acknowledging or citing sources; publishing articles in more than one journal by recycling paper. For the latter, the author must make significant changes to the new article.
