Anti-Plagiarism Policy of Bionatura Journal
Scientific journals take plagiarism very seriously because it undermines the integrity of research and scholarship.

General Principles:

Originality: Submitted manuscripts should be original work that hasn't been published elsewhere (except for abstracts or conference proceedings).
Proper Citation: All sources used in the research, including published and unpublished works, must be properly cited according to the journal's preferred style guide (e.g., APA, MLA, Chicago).
Self-Plagiarism: Reusing significant portions of your own previously published work without proper citation is also considered plagiarism.
Specific Actions Against Plagiarism:

Rejection of manuscript: If plagiarism is detected during the review process, the manuscript will likely be rejected.
Retraction of published article: In severe cases, journals may retract an already published article if plagiarism is discovered after publication.
Author notification: The author(s) will be notified of the plagiarism and the consequences of their actions.
