The Maayan International Journal of Education (MIJEDU) regards plagiarism as a very serious offense. It is an illegal form of copying. Plagiarism is defined as the unacknowledged use of the work of others as if this were your own original work. Please be aware that we check all submitted manuscripts for plagiarism. We use Turnitin & Plagiarism CheckerX, which are the leading plagiarism-detection tool, to check for similarity to previously published documents. All manuscripts containing plagiarism, including self-plagiarism, and dishonesty are rejected. Manuscripts found to be plagiarized during the initial stages of review are out-rightly rejected and not considered for publication in the journal. The plagiarism rate of the accepted manuscript must be not exceeded the rate of 5%.
TYPES OF PLAGIARISM
The following types of plagiarism are considered:
Previously published content without any changes to the text, idea and grammar is considered full plagiarism. It involves presenting exact text from a source as own.
If the content is a conglomeration of multiple different sources, where the author has extensively rephrased text, then it is known as partial plagiarism.
When an author reuses complete or portions of their pre-published research, then it is known as self-plagiarism. Complete self-plagiarism is a case when an author republishes their own previously published work in a new journal.
EXAMPLES OF PLAGIARISM:
- Copying and pasting from the Internet and posting somewhere else without proper citation
- Putting your name on another person’s essay or project
- Copying exact wording from another person’s text
- Using another person’s photo, diagram, tables, sounds, or ideas without proper citation
- Presenting research in your own words without providing references
- Purchasing another person’s text and using it as your own
- Presenting ideas in the same format and order as your research source
