Originality Policy

By submitting Author(s) manuscript to the journal it is understood that it is an original manuscript and is unpublished work and is not under consideration elsewhere. Plagiarism, including duplicate publication of the author’s own work, in whole or in part without proper citation is not tolerated by the journal. Manuscripts submitted to the journal may be checked for originality using anti-plagiarism software.

Plagiarism misrepresents ideas, words, and other creative expression as one’s own. Plagiarism represents the violation of copyright law. Plagiarism appears in various forms.

  1. Copying the exact content from the other source. Purposely using portions of another author’s paper.
  2. Copying elements of another author’s paper, such as figures, tables, equations or illustrations that are not common knowledge, or copying or purposely using sentences without citing the source.
  3. Using text downloaded from the internet.
  4. Copying or downloading figures, photographs, pictures or diagrams without acknowledging your sources.
  5. In the case of a publication being submitted that was originally published in another language, the title, date and journal of the original publication must be identified by the authors, and the copyright must be obtained. The editor may accept such a translated publication to bring it to the attention of a wider audience.
  6. In case author wants to use material from the other work, then it is mandatory to cite the same in references. Else, the author needs to change the language completely and use his/ her own language.

EYRAS strongly discourages excessive or inappropriate self-citation.

Submitted articles with content that infringes copyright may be rejected if the problematic sections cannot be removed.

Authors who wish to reproduce a figure or table from a previous copyrighted publication are responsible for obtaining the permission of copyright holders and for clearly referencing the original source. Figures that were previously published under a creative commons license may be reused under the condition of the specific license that applies to those figures.
