Journal Pharmasci (Journal of Pharmacy and Science) practices Zero tolerance towards plagiarism. We use Ithenticate to evaluate the similarity index and then decide the case of possible plagiarism (Similarity report will be provided to the author). The submitted manuscript is subject to the following actions:
1. Similarity Index above 40%: Article Rejected (due to poor citation and/or poor paraphrasing, article outright rejected).
2. Similarity Index (20-40%): Send to the author for improvement (provide correct citations to all places of similarity and do good paraphrasing even if the citation is provided).
3. Similarity index Less than 20%: Accepted or citation improvement may be required (proper citations must be provided to all outsourced texts).
In cases 2 and 3: The authors should revise the article carefully, add required citations, and do good paraphrasing to outsourced text. And resubmit the article with a new Turnitin/iThenticate report showing NO PLAGIARISM and similarity less than 20%.
