Screening for Plagiarism

Plagiarism involves the "use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work."

The Journal of Civil Engineering Editorial board recognizes that plagiarism is not acceptable and therefore establishes policy stating specific actions (penalties) when plagiarism is identified in an article that is submitted for publication in Journal of Civil Engineering.

All the manuscripts will be subjected to pre-screening of plagiarism check by using Grammarly Software. The screening process will be conducted by Editor once the mnuscript is received.
