Computer Science(CS) refers editors to the COPE Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.

● All articles to be accepted will checked by editiors on AMLC of CNKI and WANFANG DATA platforms, if the repetition rate is lower than 20%, it will pass and be accepted, and if it is equal to or higher than 20%, it will be regarded as academic plagiarism.For articles with plagiarism, the editorial department will strictly reject the papaer.And if the author is the first time to do academic misconduct, the editorial department will give a warning, if the author executes again, he/she will be included in the academic plagiarism blacklist,and the editorial department always refuses to process its submissions.
