Plagiarism Policy
SJCMS strictly follows the HEC guidelines regarding the Plagiarism Policy. Each manuscript will be scrutinized for originality check by Turnitin. Please read the Plagiarism Policy prior to submission. 

Preliminary Published / Conference Version(s)
If any portion of your submission has appeared or will appear in a conference or workshop, you should inform us of this and make sure that the submission references the conference publication, and supply a copy of the conference paper to us. Also, please provide a brief description of the differences between the submitted manuscript and the preliminary paper.

Please be aware that editors and reviewers are required to check the submitted manuscript to determine whether a sufficient amount of new material has been added to consider for publication in SJCMS. One of the key requirements is that authors should only submit original work that has neither appeared elsewhere for publication, nor which is under review for another refereed publication. If authors have used their own previously published material as a basis for a new submission, they are required to cite the previous work(s) and very clearly indicate how the new submission offers substantively novel or different contributions beyond those of the previously published work(s). Any manuscript not meeting this criterion will be rejected. Copies of any previously published work affiliated with the new submission must also be included as supportive documentation upon submission.

Contents of Manuscript for submission
Submission items include the Manuscript [Abstract, Index Terms, Introduction, Proposed Methodology, Obtained Results, Discussion, Conclusion, Acknowledgement, References, Tables, and Figures, etc.] along with the SJCMS Copyright Form duly filled and signed by the Authors. The manuscript template can be downloaded from here.

Concurrent Submission
All submissions must represent original and novel material. We discourage submitting to more than one publication at one time. If it is determined that a paper has already appeared in anything more than conference proceedings, or appears in or will appear in a submission to any other publication before the editorial process is completed, the paper will be automatically rejected and the respective author (s) would be banned for any further submission in future.
