Plagiarism Policy

Infolitika Journal of Data Science (IJDS) is committed to ensuring the integrity of scholarly publishing by promoting originality and preventing plagiarism. To achieve this, we has established the following plagiarism policy:

  1. Definition of plagiarism: Plagiarism is the act of using another person's words, ideas, or work without giving proper credit or permission. It includes the use of text, images, tables, figures, and other materials without appropriate citation.
  2. Prohibition of plagiarism: The Journal prohibits plagiarism in all forms. Authors are responsible for ensuring that their work is original and that they have properly cited any sources used in their work. Plagiarism will not be tolerated and will result in rejection of the manuscript or retraction of the published article.
  3. Detection of plagiarism: We use plagiarism detection software to check all submissions for potential plagiarism. If the software detects plagiarism and the similarity between the manuscript and existing sources is above 25%, the manuscript will be rejected or the published article will be retracted.
  4. Consequences of plagiarism: Plagiarism is a serious offense and will result in the following consequences:
    • Immediate rejection of the manuscript if plagiarism is detected during the review process.
    • Retraction of the published article if plagiarism is detected after publication.
    • Notification of the author's institution, funding agency, and other relevant parties.
    • Prohibition of future submissions from the author.
  5. Responsibility of authors: Authors are responsible for ensuring that their work is original and that they have properly cited any sources used in their work. Authors should also ensure that their work does not contain any fabricated data, falsified information, or misleading claims.
  6. Responsibility of editors and reviewers: Editors and reviewers are responsible for identifying potential plagiarism and bringing it to the attention of the Journal's editor-in-chief. They should also ensure that the manuscript meets the Journal's ethical standards.
  7. Education and awareness: The Journal will provide education and awareness programs to authors, editors, and reviewers to promote ethical publishing practices and prevent plagiarism.
