IJMSIT Plagiarism Policy
Plagiarism is the “wrongful appropriation” and “stealing and publication” of another author’s “language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions” and the representation of them as one’s own original work. Plagiarism is considered academic dishonesty and a breach of journalistic ethics. It is subject to sanctions like penalties, suspension, and even expulsion.
IJMSIT does not require all authors of a research paper to sign a letter of submission, nor does it impose an order on the list of authors. All authors who submit to IJMSIT are expected to observe the international standards for authors voluntarily.
International Journal of Management, Sciences, Innovation, and Technology IJMSIT does not encourage any form of Plagiarism and duplicate submissions. Hence, we strongly recommend our authors to thorough check of the paper content before submitting it to our Journal for publication. We request our Authors to use “Plagiarism Checking software’s” to check plagiarism prior to submission as a preliminary step, although they are not completely reliable.
International Journal of Management, Sciences, Innovation, and Technology IJMSIT will check plagiarism for all the submitted papers before publishing online. If the plagiarism is observed by editors, peer reviewers or by editorial staff at any stage of publication process, it could be rejected based on the percentile of plagiarism occurred and it would be notified to author.
It is worth mentioning that:
- Authors must certify that their manuscripts are their original work. Plagiarism, Duplicate, Data Fabrication and Falsification, and Redundant Publications are forbidden.
- Authors must certify that the manuscript has not previously been published and is not currently being considered for publication elsewhere.
- If the authors have used the work and/or words of others, the authors must ensure that the work and/or words of others are appropriately cited or quoted and identify all sources used in the creation of their manuscripts.
- When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the Journal editor and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
- Authors must notify IJMSIT of any conflicts of interest.
- Plagiarism level should be less of 20%. In the case it is higher than 20%, the paper is going to be rejected.
