Plagiarism Policy

Authors are required to ensure that their submissions to the "Journal of Food Legumes" constitute original work, with proper attribution given to sources when utilizing the work, data, or words of others. Any statements derived from previously published work should be accompanied by appropriate citations. Excessive self-citation or coordinated efforts among authors to collectively self-cite are strongly discouraged. Plagiarism in any form is considered unethical and unacceptable by the publisher. All manuscripts undergo an initial plagiarism check by the Editorial Board using Plagiarism Detection Software. If similarities are detected, authors are advised to revise the manuscript accordingly. Upon resubmission, a final plagiarism check is conducted before considering the manuscript for publication. In the event of substantial plagiarism, the publisher reserves the right to inform the author's affiliated organization for appropriate administrative action. Additionally, the publisher may inform the administration of the source from which plagiarized materials were used. Authors found to have committed plagiarism may have their accounts disabled for future submissions, as determined by the Editorial Board, for a period of one to three years.
