Plagiarism Policy - Journal of Management and Science

Plagiarism is when an author attempts to pass off someone elses work as his or her own. Duplicate publication, sometimes called self-plagiarism, occurs when an author reuses substantial parts of his or her own published work without providing the appropriate references.

Many online softwares are now available to detect possible plagiarism which an author may use before submitting a manuscript to JMS.

JMS feels adequate referencing is very important to ensure that manuscripts are not deemed to be plagiarized.

On Detection of Plagiarism following actions can be taken:

  • Immediate rejection of the manuscript.
  • Prohibition against all of the authors for any new submissions to any journal published either individually or in combination with other authors of the manuscript, as well as in combination with any other authors.
  • Prohibition against all of the authors from serving on the Editorial Board of JMS.
  • If an author submits a manuscript to JMS with significant overlap with a manuscript submitted to another journal simultaneously, and this overlap is discovered during the review process or after the publications of both papers, the editor of the other journal is notified and the case is treated as a severe plagiarism case.
  • In the case of a publication being submitted that was originally published in another language, the title, date and journal of the original publication must be identified by the authors, and the copyright must be obtained. The editor may accept such a translated publication to bring it to the attention of a wider audience.
  • In case Author wants to use material from the other Authors Article then it is mandatory to cite the same in references. Else the Author needs to change the language completely and use his/ her own language.
