Plagiarism and its types
Plagiarism is demonstrating someone else’s ideas, results or processes or words as own, with or without approval, by including them into work without full acknowledgment of the original author and source. Plagiarism is considered to have happened when substantial parts of a paper have been copied from current formerly published resources. Self-plagiarism happens when an author exploits large portion of his/her own formerly published work without providing appropriate citations. Self-plagiarism can range from getting the same material published in multiple journals to modifying a formerly published paper with some new data.
Types of Plagiarism
The following types of plagiarism are examined by JMER:
Plagiarism policy actions
The JMER is rigidly against any act of plagiarism in any form. By submitting author(s) article to the JMER it is expected that it is an original paper, unpublished work which is not under reviewing elsewhere. Plagiarism, including duplicate publication of the author(s) own work in the same language, in general or partially without appropriate citation is not accepted by the JMER.
All papers submitted for publication JMER are cross-checked for plagiarism with the use of anti-plagiarism software. If plagiarism has been found out in any stage of article process, a handling editor will alarm the same to the author(s) and will request them to rewrite the content or provide citations the references from where the content has been replicated.
If a case of plagiarism has been detected after an article has been published in the JMER, the journal will conduct an initial study. If plagiarism has been identified, the editorial office of JMER will contact the author's institute and funding agencies. A determination of unethical behavior will lead the JMER to form a statement, linked online to and from the original article, to mention the plagiarism and to provide appropriate references to the plagiarised portions of material. The article comprising the plagiarism will also be noticeably marked on each page of the PDF paper. Depending on the extent of the plagiarism, the article may also be formally withdrawn.
