Submitting your manuscript to a journal means that it is an original manuscript, an unpublished work and is not under any consideration elsewhere. Plagiarism - attempts to pass off someone else's work as your own and duplicate publication of the author’s work in whole or in part without proper citation, is not tolerated by any journal.

Plagiarism can be said to have occurred when large chunks of text have been cut-and-pasted. Such manuscripts will not be considered for publication. Depending on the degree of plagiarism, authors can be banned to submit other manuscripts for publication for a period ranging from 1 to 5 years. Minor plagiarism (under 15-30% based on the journal policy), without fraudulent intent, is somewhat frequent and is handled by the editors on a case by case basis. In most cases, authors will be required to correct the text and to use proper citation.
