Plagiarism Policy

The Indus Journal of Science (IJS) has a zero-tolerance policy on plagiarism. Plagiarism is the act of using someone else's words or ideas without giving them credit.

It 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
  • Failing to cite a source when using data or images from another source

IJSci uses a plagiarism detection software to screen all submissions. If plagiarism is detected, the manuscript will be rejected and the author(s) will be notified. In serious cases, the author(s) may be banned from submitting to the journal in the future.

Authors are responsible for ensuring that their submissions are free of plagiarism. They should carefully cite all sources of information used in their work, including books, articles, websites, and data sets. They should also avoid self-plagiarism, which is the act of reusing one's own work without proper attribution.

If you are unsure about whether or not your work is plagiarized, you can consult the IJS plagiarism policy or ask a librarian for help.

Here are some tips for avoiding plagiarism:

  • Always cite your sources. This means providing the author, title, publication date, and page number(s) of the source you are using.
  • Do not copy and paste text from another source without attribution.
  • Paraphrase the text from another source carefully, and make sure to cite the source.
  • Do not use someone else's ideas without giving them credit.
  • Be sure to cite all data and images that you use in your work.

By following these tips, you can help to ensure that your submissions to IJS are free of plagiarism.
