Plagiarism is the act of when one author uses another work/author (copying someone’s prior ideas, processes, results or words) without permission, credit, or acknowledgment. The CMHP Journal is strictly against any unethical act of copying or plagiarism in any form. Authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works. CMHP Journal considers plagiarism as a serious offense and will blacklist authors who knowingly cite or use material from other published works without proper acknowledgment. Authors are recommended to use plagiarism checking program to check the similarity from prior publication before undergoing the review processes or before published. Every manuscript that is also submitted to this journal will be screened for plagiarism using Turnitin Program  before submission or published by CMHP Journal Editor.

The following types of plagiarism are considered by CMHP Journal :
1. Full Plagiarism: Previously published content without any changes to the text, idea and grammar is considered as full plagiarism. It involves presenting exact text from a source as one’s own.
2. Partial Plagiarism: If content is a mixture from multiple different sources, where the author has extensively rephrased text, then it is known as partial plagiarism.
3. Self-Plagiarism: When an author reuses complete or portions of their pre-published research, then it is known as self-plagiarism. Complete self-plagiarism is a case when an author republishes their own previously published work in a new journal.

If plagiarism is detected by the editorial board member, reviewer, editor etc., in any stage of article process- before or after acceptance, during editing or at a page proof stage. We will alert the same to the author(s) and will ask them to rewrite the content or to cite the references from where the content has been taken. If more than 20% of the paper is plagiarized- the article may be rejected and the same is notified to the author.

If plagiarism is detected after publication, the Journals will conduct an investigation. If plagiarism is found, the competent authority of the CMHP Journal will contact the author's institute and funding agencies. The paper containing the plagiarism will be marked on each page of the PDF. Depending on the extent of the plagiarism, the paper may also be formally retracted.
