Plagiarism policy of AJBE

Text similarity below 15% is acceptable by AJBE and a similarity of >25% is considered as high percentage of plagiarism. But even in case of 15% similarity, if the matching text is one continuous block of borrowed material, it will be considered as plagiarized text of significant concern. However, text similarity due to the usage of common terminologies, numbers, common names and method related details in ‘Methodology’ part of a manuscript is acceptable although the plagiarism checking tool shows it in the report.
