Engineering Journal: Plagiarism policy

Engineering Journal IJOER publishes articles of international interest from all areas of Engineering research and Science. The Journal is an international publication organization aims to publish research articles in the field of Engineering Research and Sciences. The aim of the journal is to offers scientists or researchers with expertise in Engineering Research and Sciences to share their systematic research outcomes with the real world or with new professionals who are doing best in this field. Engineering Journal IJOER is a worldwide monthly journal managed by AD Publications, Bikaner, and Rajasthan, INDIA since April 2015.

As in the open access platform there is exchange of ideas plays an essential role in the academic research, as often it is only by conversation with others that can be fully possible to process data or concept. Therefore, researchers generally are motivated to get involved in conversations with their research, and even their projects. To ensure the proper sources of results and outcomes of research work, plagiarism policy is adopted. Therefore Engineering Journal IJOER does not accept the article whose contents are copied from some other material. The contents should be acceptable only in the case that authors had mentioned the proper reference of the copied contents.

Plagiarism is the unethical act of copying someone else's prior ideas, processes, results or words without explicit acknowledgement of the original author and source. Self-plagiarism occurs when an author utilizes large part of his/her own previously published work without using appropriate references. This can range from getting the same article published in multiple journals to modifying a previously published article with some new data.

Engineering Journal IJOER is strictly against any unethical act of copying or plagiarism in any information used in the article. Plagiarism is said to have occurred when any portions of an article have been copied from existing previously published work. All articles submitted for publication to Engineering Journal IJOER are cross-checked for plagiarism using Turnitin software or any reputed licensed software. Articles found to be plagiarized during any stages of review are out-rightly rejected and not considered for publication in the journal. In case an article is found to be plagiarized after publication, the Editor-in-Chief will conduct investigation committee for the purpose and will have to submit report to editor for the same. If the article is found to be plagiarized beyond the acceptable limits, Engineering Journal IJOER may contact the author's Institute / College / University and Funding Agency, if any. The article containing the plagiarism will also be marked on each page of the PDF. Upon determination of the extent of plagiarism, the article may also be formally retracted.
