FUJRS has Zero tolerance Policy on the Plagiarism issue and follows the COPE guidelines and HEC (Pakistan) policies regarding Turnitin Originality Report and Plagiarism. Plagiarism is the use of others' published and unpublished ideas or words without permission and presenting them as new and original rather than derived from an existing source. FUJRS journals evaluate submissions on the understanding that they are the original work of the author(s). We expect that references made in a manuscript or article to another person’s work or idea will be credited appropriately. Equally, we expect authors to gain all appropriate permissions prior to publication.

Re-use of text, data, figures, or images without appropriate acknowledgment or permission is considered plagiarism, as is the paraphrasing of text, concepts, and ideas. All allegations of plagiarism are investigated thoroughly and in accordance with COPE guidelines.

All manuscripts are checked for similarity index. Any disputes are considered on merit and the editorial Board decides the issue after looking at all the pertinent facts.
