The committee is not responsible of this previous aspects in this publishing modality. In this sense, we strongly recommend the authors to use online text-similarity checking services to avoid any form of plagiarism or copyright violation. The authors may be requested to modify the communication (re-write their texts) in the case that high similarity is detected and reported to the committee. In these cases, the manuscript could be put on standby or withdrawn temporarily until the authors re-submit the proper version.
