The Chief Editor of Era's Journal of Medical Research (EJMR) is responsible for deciding which of the research papers/articles submitted to
the journal should be published. The publishing decision is based on the recommendation of the journal’s reviewers. All authors submitting
their works to the journal for publication as original articles attest that the submitting works represent their author’s
contributions and have not been copied in whole or in part from other works. The Chief Editor may be guided by the policies
of the journal’s editorial board and constrained by such legal requirements as shall then be in force regarding libel, copyright
infringement and plagiarism. If the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or
quoted. Applicable copyright laws and conventions should be followed. Plagiarism in any form, including the touting of material contained in
another paper (of the same authors or some other author) with cosmetic changes as a new paper; copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another’s
paper (without attribution), and claiming results from research conducted by others are among the numerous forms of plagiarism. In all its forms.
Plagiarism constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable. The Chief Editor may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.
Plagiarism is considered when an author attempts to pass off someone else's work as his or her own. Duplicate publication, sometimes called self-plagiarism, occurs
when an author reuses substantial parts of their own published work without providing the appropriate references. This can range from getting an identical paper published
in multiple journals, to 'salami-slicing', where authors add small amounts of new data to a previous paper. Plagiarism can be said to have clearly occurred when large chunks
of text have been cut-and-pasted. Such manuscripts would not be considered for publication in EJMR.
