Unpublished Work

We also aim at publishing works that were never published previously by the same author or is not self-plagiarized. Self-plagiarism is also prohibited by UGC for the purpose of maintaining high standards of research work for promoting India’s academic achievements compared to other Nations of the world. According to UGC “reproduction of one’s own previously published work without adequate citation and proper acknowledgement and claiming the most recent work as new and original for any academic advantage amounts to ‘text-recycling’ (also known as ‘Self-plagiarism’ and is not acceptable”. In order to know more about self-plagiarism please read the UGC notice on self-plagiarism by clicking here:
