Plagiarism in all its forms is unacceptable and unethical. Canadian Prosthetics & Orthotics Journal (CPOJ) considers all forms of plagiarism and copyright infringement a serious offence. Appropriate author acknowledgement must be clearly indicated in the submitted manuscript. In-text citations must be inserted appropriately and citations must be correctly associated with a corresponding reference list. Manuscripts submitted for publication will be checked using duplication-verifying software. In cases of plagiarism, or disputed authorship, CPOJ reserves the right to retract the published article and if necessary, take legal action.
