Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism Policy

The word plagiarism is derived from the latin word plagiare which means abduct or steal. Plagiarism is defined by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy on delinquency in Research as: "The stealing of another person's ideas, tables, content, processes, results or words without citing the appropriate credit to be considered as crime". The locality of the content is irrelevant when it comes to plagiarism; content from the internet is equally comparable to information appearing from a book or journal.

Plagiarism may be of “self or duplicate, blatant”. Blatant is a very transparent way of copying contents from other papers. Self plagiarism means authors copying their own material without providing reference. Duplicate publication refers to the publication of author’s articles in two or more journals at the same time either with or without changing the content.

Plagiarism is immoral. The art of writing without any new innovative ideas from authors will create an imbalance between knowledge and understanding. This way of providing information to public is priceless. The proper way of giving credit to original information is by citing and acknowledging. This will definitely embellish original author’s value of work.

 

Plagiarism checking before publication:

Blue Ocean Publisher’s open access publishing will check plagiarism for all the articles before prior publication. If the plagiarism content is observed by editors, peer reviewers or by editorial staff members at any stage of publication process at the time of editing or proof reading will be informed to author to rewrite the manuscript.
