Plagiarism Policy

"Advances in the Theory of Nonlinear Analysis and its Applications" is committed to maintaining the highest standards of research integrity and ethical publishing practices. Plagiarism, in any form, is a serious violation of these standards. This Plagiarism Policy outlines our approach to identifying and addressing plagiarism in submitted manuscripts.

Definition of Plagiarism:

Plagiarism is the act of using another person's ideas, words, images, data, or intellectual property without proper attribution or permission and presenting them as one's own. This includes, but is not limited to:

  1. Copying verbatim text from sources without proper quotation and citation.
  2. Paraphrasing content from sources without proper citation.
  3. Reproducing images, figures, tables, or other media without permission and proper credit.
  4. Submitting previously published work as original content (self-plagiarism).

Our Approach:

"Advances in the Theory of Nonlinear Analysis and its Applications" employs various tools and measures to detect and prevent plagiarism:

  1. Plagiarism Detection Software: Submitted manuscripts are subjected to plagiarism detection using reputable plagiarism detection tools. The software compares the content against a vast database of academic and online sources.

  2. Editorial Review: Our editorial team reviews manuscripts for potential instances of plagiarism during the initial assessment process.

Actions in Case of Plagiarism:

If plagiarism is detected in a submitted manuscript, the following actions will be taken:

  1. Initial Assessment: The editorial team will carefully evaluate the extent and nature of plagiarism to determine its severity.

  2. Contacting the Author: Authors will be contacted to explain the identified issues and provide an opportunity to respond.

  3. Corrections or Rejection: Depending on the severity of plagiarism, the manuscript may be rejected or returned to the authors for corrections.

  4. Publication Retraction: If plagiarism is discovered after publication, the article will be retracted, and a notice will be issued on the journal website and other relevant platforms.


Authors can take the following steps to prevent plagiarism:

  1. Properly attribute and cite all sources used in the manuscript.
  2. Use quotation marks for verbatim text and provide proper citations.
