Plagiarism can be defined as presenting someone other’s works with different or personal authorship. It is the commonest of all the other malpractices in the journal publication. The authors intentionally or unintentionally try to copy the researches from the other authors and thereafter republish them again with their name and credentials. The SEM journals adhere to the guidelines of the COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) and therefore, never promote the plagiarism in its journals.
SEM Journals implements plagiarism check by plagiarism detection software (Turnitin) to detect similarity, overlapping of text in submitted manuscript.
Published manuscripts which are found to contain plagiarized text are reversed from the journal’s website after decision of Editor of the journal.
