Plagiarism Policy of Journal of Science Innovations and Nature of Earth

Journal of Science Innovations and Nature of Earth Journal maintains a stringent policy against plagiarism and any form of similarity in submitted articles. Plagiarism, whether in text, images, records, or any other form, is considered illegal, unethical, and wholly unacceptable by academic standards. We view plagiarism as a morally corrosive practice that undermines the integrity of scholarly work. We don't accept the AI generated Texts also.

Authors submitting their work to the journal are required to ensure that their submissions are free from plagiarism. Before submission, authors are encouraged to utilize plagiarism detection software to check their work thoroughly. The Editorial Board reserves the right to verify each submission for plagiarism, and authors will be notified if any instances are found.

All submissions undergo rigorous plagiarism screening using Turnitin or Ithenticate software by the editorial team. If submitted articles are discovered to be plagiarized or bear similarity in form, they are rejected or returned to the authors for rewriting without undergoing peer review. The Editor-in-chief ensures that proper citations and credits are given where necessary. Articles with appropriately cited similar content, within allowed limits and with due credit to the original owners, may proceed to the review process.

Authors are reminded to submit original work and properly cite any content sourced from others. Written consent from the original authors is required if incorporating their ideas.

Authors are strongly advised to check the plagiarism level of their articles before submission, using standard tools such as Turnitin, Urkund Plagiarism Detector, Ithenticate Plagiarism Checker, Plagiarism Detector, and Grammarly. Plagiarism reports generated by these tools must be included with submissions.

The following guidelines apply to plagiarism levels:

  1. Below 10%: Research articles with a plagiarism level below 10% may be accepted after review by the Editor-in-chief and Peer Reviewers.
  2. Above 10-20%: Research articles with a plagiarism level of 10-20% are returned to authors for content improvement, along with proper plagiarism reports and instructions.
  3. Above 20%: Research articles with a plagiarism level above 20% are rejected, accompanied by proper plagiarism reports, and authors are duly informed.

It's important to note that the acceptance or rejection of research articles is not solely determined by the level of plagiarism. The Review Team considers various criteria of research ethics and standards in their decision-making process.
