Detecting Plagiarism is not an easy task, ideally it require the cooperation between (all) publishing houses around the world.
Up to this moment; 20% from the articles submitted to the IJC journal will be checked using the iThenticate plagiarism detection software (we plan to increase the percentage at the beginning of the next year). This does not mean that we accept Plagiarism in any way. Plagiarism if detected or reported at any stage will be investigated and will be treated based on the guidelines contained in the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) flowcharts that can be downloaded from the following link (http://publicationethics.org/resources/flowcharts).
