To avoid plagiarism, authors should be aware of the recommendations as follows:

- Paraphrasing: express the idea with your own words. Make sure not to make a literal copy of more than two words in a text line. If you use longer sentences, use quotation marks.

- Citations: follow the Vancouver style formatting guidelines. It involves adding the names of the authors and the date of publication or similar information. It may constitute plagiarism in case of not citing it correctly. When citing a source, use the phrase exactly as it appears in the original text.

- Making reference to a citation: this practice does not need the use of apud as the citation is within the work of another author. Attention when informing the page, year and both involved authors (the one cited and the one citing).

- Self-citation: the authors should self-cite when citing their own previously published ideas. Using previously published material without proper reference constitutes self-plagiarism.

19) After the approval of the work, the article will be kept for review where further clarifications and adjustments may be required.
