Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism refers to intentional copying of others work without proper attribution or copies content without providing for appropriate references.

IJIRSES follow strict policy in case of plagiarism within its purview. Before, during or after the publication process if the editorial board member, reviewer, author etc. detects any element of plagiarism; the authors are advised to provide proper citations. An article is plagiarized, is summarily rejected and the author is informed the same.

The submitted manuscript is checked for the plagiarism before starting the review process.

Types of Plagiarism

The following types of plagiarism are considered by the journal:

Self-Plagiarism: When an author reuses complete or larger portions of his/her pre-published research, then it is known as self-plagiarism. If the author republishes his/ her previously published work in another journal(s) then it is called as complete self-plagiarism.

Full Plagiarism: Previously published content without any changes to the text, idea and grammar is considered as full plagiarism. It involves presenting exact text from a source as one’s own.

Partial Plagiarism: If content is a mixture from multiple different sources, where the author has extensively rephrased text, then it is known as partial plagiarism.

We are very strict against any unethical act of copying or plagiarism in any form. Whenever we find plagiarism in the submitted manuscript at quality checking steps or initial stages of review, it will be out-rightly rejected and will not be considered for publication in the journal anymore.
