PLAGIARISM

PLAGIARISM POLICY

Papers submitted to IIERJ will be screened for plagiarism using Crosscheck / iThenticate Plagiarism detection tools. Apart from that we check with Copyscape for plagiarism. International Journal of IIERJ will immediately reject the papers leading to plagiarism of self-plagiarism.

Whether intentional or not, plagiarism is a serious violation. Plagiarism is the copying of ideas, text, data and other creative work (e.g. tables, figures and graphs) and presenting it as original research without proper citation. We define plagiarism as a case in which a paper reproduces another work with at least 25% similarity and without citation.

If evidence of plagiarism is found before/after acceptance or after publication of the paper, the author will be offered a chance for rebuttal. If the arguments are not found to be satisfactory, the manuscript will be retracted and the author sanctioned from publishing papers for a period to be determined by the responsible Editor(s).

The Merriam Webster Online Dictionary (http://learnersdictionary.com/) defines plagiarizing as:

  • to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one’s own
  • use (another’s production) without crediting the source
  • to commit literary theft
  • present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source

Academic Journals considers plagiarism a serious offense. Academic Journals is committed to eliminating manuscripts with possible cases of plagiarism from its review and publication process. Academic Journals uses the iThenticate plagiarism detection application to check each manuscript for possible cases of plagiarism.

Plagiarism check is the first step in the manuscript review process. Manuscripts that are found to contain unacceptable level of similarity with other published works are immediately rejected.

Submitted manuscripts should be the original works of the author(s). Academic Journals will follow Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) guideline in suspected cases of plagiarism.

Plagiarism is a serious issue around the world in the arena of manuscript writing. Plagiarism means “the unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of the one’s own original work “.
