The Editorial Team of the JIDENT takes the necessary measures to examine the incoming papers on their originality, reliability of contained information and correct use of citations. The Editorial Team of the JIDENT acknowledges that plagiarism is unacceptable and therefore establishes the following policies that state-specific actions (penalties) if plagiarism is identified in a manuscript submitted for publication in the JIDENT.
Authors can only apply works that are completely original. If they have used someone else's work or comments, they must properly cite or reference them. Plagiarism in every type, including without attribution quotes or paraphrasing of significant sections of another's paper, "passing off" another's article as the author's own, or claiming results from research performed by others, is unethical publishing activity. Manuscripts that are a collection of previously published materials by other writers (without their own artistic and authoring interpretation) will not be published. Using unfair text borrowing and granting research results that do not belong to the writers of the submitted manuscript is prohibited.
The authors must ensure that the submitted manuscript:
- describes completely the original work
- is not plagiarized
- has never been written or published or presented in any language before
- the material or words taken from other publications are properly referenced or mentioned in the document.
Existing copyright laws and conventions must be observed. Copyright-protected materials (such as charts, graphs, or broad quotations) can only be reproduced with the owner's permission.
The JIDENT takes responsibility to assist a scientific community in all aspects of publication ethics policy, particularly in case of multiple submission/publication and plagiarism. The editors reserve the right to conduct a plagiarism search on any manuscripts obtained. A similarity level of not more than 5% in a manuscript submitted to JIDENT is needed. The similarity per detected references must also be less than 1%. A textual similarity of more than 5% is considered inappropriate.
Editors check the plagiarism detection of manuscripts in this JIDENT by using plagiarism detection software. The JIDENT will immediately reject papers leading to plagiarism or self-plagiarism. The JIDENT adheres to international practices of preventing plagiarism.
Thus, all authors that submit their manuscripts to the JIDENT must check that their academic work respects the copyrights of other scholars and avoids any and all plagiarism. Once the manuscript is submitted to the JIDENT, the editorial team will assign a group of anti-plagiarism members to check the manuscript through various tools. If plagiarism is discovered, the manuscript will be automatically rejected, and the Editorial Board will contact the author to demand a clarification and the removal of the plagiarized material. The author will be unable to send manuscripts to the JIDENT for duration of five (5) years if they do not answer within a reasonable time or make the required changes. The journal's adopted code of ethics (Committee on Publication Ethics [Code of Conduct and Best Practices Guidelines for Journals Editors]) will be checked and action taken if the Editorial Board has reason to suspect the manuscript was not drafted or researched in an ethical manner. Direct plagiarism is the plagiarism of the text. Mosaic plagiarism is when you take a few words or phrases verbatim from an original source and don't give credit to the author. Plagiarism occurs when an author uses another person's work (usually another author's work) without permission, credit, or acknowledgment. Plagiarism can take several forms, ranging from literal copying to paraphrasing someone else's work.
The author is responsible for determining whether the material submitted, such as statistics, tables, photos, illustrations, trade literature, and records, is protected by copyright or ownership rights. Any such objects must have permission to be reproduced, and the author must provide these permissions with their final submission. When a material's use is limited, the editorial office and publisher must be notified with the material's final submission.
