Plagiarism is an act of using thoughts of another author without authorization and the representation of that author's work as one's own, without crediting the original author. Whether intentional or unintentional, plagiarism is recognized as a serious academic offence. All manuscripts received towards Larix International journals are scanned for plagiarism. If potential plagiarism is detected, authors will be contacted for clarification. The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others, it is necessary to indicate the source of the information within your paper using an internal citation. Failing to properly quote, cite or acknowledge someone else's words or ideas with an internal citation is plagiarism. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.
