Guidelines of the IJCMAS on Plagiarism Detection

Plagiarism is a severe violation of academic integrity and is not tolerated by IJCMAS. To maintain the highest standards of scientific publishing, IJCMAS adheres to COPE guidelines and employs stringent policies to prevent and address plagiarism:

  1. Definition of Plagiarism:
    • Plagiarism, as defined by COPE, involves using someone else's words, ideas, or results without giving proper credit. This includes copying text, replicating someone else's experiment or results, or reusing or modifying figures without permission and acknowledgement.
  2. Plagiarism Detection Software:
    • All submitted manuscripts will be checked for plagiarism using reliable plagiarism detection software. This software compares the content of the manuscript with a vast database of academic content.
    • The aim is to identify instances of overlapping or identical text. Any manuscript found to contain significant similarities with previously published work will be scrutinized for plagiarism.
  3. Handling Suspected Plagiarism:
    • If potential plagiarism is detected at the submission stage, the manuscript may be returned to the author for revision or may be rejected outright.
    • If plagiarism is detected after publication, IJCMAS will follow the COPE guidelines on post-publication plagiarism. This can result in a correction or retraction of the article, and the author's institution may be notified.
  4. Author Responsibility:
    • It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure their work is entirely original, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others, this has been appropriately cited or quoted.
    • Paraphrasing material or directly quoting text from other sources must be properly acknowledged with appropriate references.

IJCMAS takes all forms of plagiarism seriously and will take necessary actions to preserve the integrity of the academic record.
