Plagiarism Policy

Each of the manuscripts submitted for publication to IIR, are subject to verification for plagiarism before being sent to an editor for editorial review by using the Turnitin anti-plagiarism software.

If the author(s) submit a manuscript that contains work that is not theirs, without acknowledging the sources, then it is considered that the author(s) have committed ‘plagiarism’. 

In case the plagiarism is detected, either by editors, peer reviewers or editorial staff at any stage before publishing the manuscripts, we will promptly alert the author (s) to either rewrite the text and cite the original source or we will reject the manuscripts if found that at least  20% of the original submission is plagiarized.
