Statement of malpractice

Tanzania Journal of Sociology is committed to ensure compliance with the best standard of publication ethics, and is extremely strict on publication malpractice. Authors should only submit original works. To that end, all submitted manuscripts are subjected to the Turnitin software to determine any case of plagiarism in all its forms. Manuscripts which have already been published or are still under review elsewhere cannot be submitted. The journal retains the rights to retract the already accepted and/or published works, if cases of plagiarism or other forms of publication malpractices are discovered. It is the responsibility of authors to obtain permission to reproduce any material for which they do not own copyright, to be used in both print and electronic media, and for ensuring that the appropriate acknowledgements are included in their manuscript.
