Plagiarism / Duplicate / Redundant publication policy

Journal of Condensed Matter has a strict anti-plagiarism policy. Plagiarism is discouraged at every step and can lead to withdrawal of the manuscript/article. Re-use of text, data, figures, or images without appropriate acknowledgment or permission is considered plagiarism, as is the paraphrasing of text, concepts, and ideas.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published or currently submitted elsewhere. Duplicate publication is a violation of the APA code of ethics and will be grounds for prompt rejection of the submitted manuscript. If the editor was not aware of the violation and the article has been published, a notice of duplicate submission and the ethical violation will be published and the article can be retracted. All allegations of plagiarism/ duplicate publication are investigated in accordance with COPE guidelines.
