Plagiarism Policy

The Indus Journal of Medical and Health Sciences (IJMH) has a strict plagiarism policy. Plagiarism is defined as the use of someone else's words or ideas without giving them credit.

This can take many forms, including:

  • Copying and pasting text from another source without attribution
  • Paraphrasing someone else's work without citing the source
  • Using someone else's ideas without giving them credit
  • Self-plagiarism, which is using your own work without properly citing it

The IJMH uses a plagiarism detection software to screen all submitted manuscripts. If plagiarism is detected, the manuscript will be rejected. In cases of severe plagiarism, the authors may be banned from submitting future manuscripts to the journal.

The IJMH takes plagiarism very seriously. We believe that plagiarism is a form of academic dishonesty and that it undermines the integrity of the research process. We are committed to ensuring that all published research in the IJMH is original and that the authors have properly cited their sources.

If you are unsure about whether your work constitutes plagiarism, please consult the IJMH plagiarism policy or contact the editorial office for more information.

Here are some tips to avoid plagiarism:

  • Always cite your sources properly. This means giving the author(s), title, and publication information for any text, data, or ideas that you use in your work.
  • Do not copy and paste text from another source. If you need to use someone else's words, paraphrase them and put them in your own words.
  • Be careful when using your own previous work. If you are using text or data from a previous publication, be sure to cite it properly.

By following these tips, you can help to ensure that your work is original and that you avoid plagiarism.
