GIAP journals have a Zero tolerance policy towards plagiarism. All articles are scanned through iThenticate Turnitin.
Authors are requested to check plagiarism at their end also to avoid any unpleasant situation.
Please respect the work of other researchers by proper quotation and citation in your article.
If any article is found plagiarized, it will not be published in our journals.
If you find infringement of the copyright of your work in any work of GIAP Conferences and GIAP Journals, please inform us with proper evidence for corrective measures. Contact us immediately in case of plagiarism related queries.
Possible Actions by Editor
GIAP Journals practices ZERO tolerance for Plagiarism. We use iThenticate to evaluate similarity index and then the editor decides the case of possible plagiarism (Similarity report will be provided to the author). Editorial board has passed the following actions:
1. Similarity Index above 40% --> Article Rejected (due to poor citation and/or poor paraphrasing, article outright rejected, NO RESUBMISSION accepted)
2. Similarity Index (10-40%) --> Send to the author for improvement [provide correct citations to all places of similarity and do good paraphrasing even if the citation is provided]
3. Similarity index Less than 10% --> Accepted or citation improvement may be required. [proper citations must be provided to all outsourced texts]
In case 2 and 3: Authors should revise the article carefully, add required citations, and do good paraphrasing to outsourced text. And resubmit the article with new Turnitin report showing NO PLAGIARISM and similarity below 10%
