Plagiarism is the unethical act of copying someone else’s initial ideas, processes, results, or words without explicit acknowledgment of the original author and source. Self-plagiarism occurs when an author utilizes large parts of their previously published work without using appropriate references. This can range from getting the same manuscript published in multiple journals to modifying a previously published manuscript with some new data.
The IJCERT Journal is a peer-reviewed journal. The journal seeks to publish original research articles that are hypothetical and theoretical and that provide exploratory insights into educational theory, teaching methods, instructional design, student management, case studies, etc., at both undergraduate and graduate levels. The editorial board welcomes high-quality research or review papers focusing on teaching, researching, training, and applying for work in the field of higher education.
The journal is strictly against any unethical act of copying or plagiarism. Plagiarism is said to have occurred when large portions of a manuscript have been copied from existing, previously published resources. All manuscripts submitted for publication to IJCERT Journal are cross-checked for plagiarism using iThenticate/Turnitin software. Manuscripts found to be plagiarized during the initial stages of review are outrightly rejected and not considered for publication in the journal. If a manuscript is plagiarized after publication, the Editor-in-Chief will conduct a preliminary investigation, perhaps with the help of an appropriate committee. Suppose the manuscript is plagiarized beyond the acceptable limits. In that case, the journal will contact the author’s institute/college/university and funding agency, if any. A determination of misconduct will lead IJCERT to run a statement bi-directionally linked online to and from the original paper to note the plagiarism and provide a reference to the plagiarized material. The paper containing the plagiarism will also be marked on each PDF page. Upon determination of the extent of plagiarism, the paper may also be formally retracted.
