Anti-plagiarism policy

AMP adheres itself to the recommendations of the Committee in Publication Ethics (COPE; and the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE). AMP reviews all potential misconducts against publication ethics, such as plagiarism, redundant publication, data manipulation and invention, as well as any infringement related with authorship and institutional affiliation(s). Every manuscript submitted to AMP will undergo review by anti-plagiarism software (Turnitin (R)).

Should plagiarism be found during the publication process, the manuscript will be rejected; if found after the paper had been published, a rectification will be issued. Afterwards, a communication will be sent to the institutions where the author(s) is/are affiliated, following COPE recommendations.

For complaints: the email address is available for complaints about bad practices in the scientific publication process.
