REiLA is trying to help editors verify the originality of submitted manuscripts. As part of this process, selected submitted manuscripts are scanned and compared with the Grammarly® Plagiarism Checker and Turnitin database.
PLAGIARISM PRIOR PUBLISHING:
REiLA journals will judge any case of plagiarism within its limits. If plagiarism is detected by the editorial board member, reviewer, editor, etc., in any stage of the article process- before or after acceptance then we will alert the same to the author(s) and will ask them to rewrite the content or to cite the references from where the content has been taken.
WHEN DOES THE PLAGIARISM CHECK DO?
All the submitted manuscripts for publication are checked for plagiarism after submission and before starting the review.
HOW IS PLAGIARISM HANDLED?
The manuscripts in which plagiarism is detected are handled based on the extent of the plagiarism. >5%
Similarity: The manuscript will be given an ID and the manuscript is sent to the author for content revision.
0-20% Similarity, the manuscript will proceed to the Review stage.
21-25% Similarity, the results of the Turnitin check will be sent to the author for content revision before proceeding to the Review stage.
>25% Similarity, the manuscript will be rejected without going through the peer-review process. The authors will receive the results and are advised to revise the manuscript and resubmit it. Authors may be given a chance to revise depending on the potential impact and quality of data.
REiLA Journal adheres to international policies against plagiarism. Plagiarism is the exposing of another person’s thoughts or words as though they were your own, without permission, credit, or acknowledgment, or because of failing to cite the sources properly. Plagiarism can take diverse forms, from literal copying to paraphrasing the work of another. To properly judge whether an author has plagiarised, we emphasize the following possible situations:
- An author cannot literally copy another author’s work by copying word by word, in whole or in part, without permission, acknowledgment, or citing the original source. This practice can be identified by comparing the original source and the manuscript/work that is suspected of plagiarism.
- Substantial copying implies the reproduction of a substantial part of another author's work without permission, acknowledgment, or citation. The substantial term can be understood both in terms of quality and quantity and is often used in the context of intellectual property.
- Paraphrasing involves taking ideas, words, or phrases from a source and crafting them into new sentences within the writing. This practice becomes unethical when the author does not properly cite or does not acknowledge the original work/author. This form of plagiarism is the most difficult form to identify.
