Anti-Plagiarism Policy

‘CGCIJCTR’ has a very strict anti-plagiarism policy which embraces both plagiarism and self-plagiarism, due to the notion that academic research work is supposed to be original and thus should be published only once, at least in archival publications of large dissemination scope such as ‘CGCIJCTR’. The journal uses Turnitin platform to check the originality of articles. Authors must ensure that the article submitted should be in their own language and any material from a published article must be cited properly in the text. Authors are not allowed to copy the sentences of other articles as such even if they are providing references for the same. Manuscripts found to have been plagiarized will be rejected as such and will not be considered for publication further. Plagiarism may be accidental or blatant and even self-plagiarism. Accidental or Unintentional one may not even know that they are plagiarizing. It is the Author’s responsibility to make sure that they understand the difference between quoting and paraphrasing, as well as the proper way to cite material.

Blatant Here, Authors are well aware that they are plagiarizing. Purposefully using someone else's ideas or work without proper acknowledgment is plagiarism. This includes presenting borrowed or bought research papers as one's own.

Self Turning in the same term paper (or substantially the same paper) for two courses without seeking permission from one's instructor is plagiarism. Plagiarism is not only legally wrong but also morally corrosive. Any paper based on the writing of others should acknowledge and mention every source used. In a reference paper, the acknowledgements are made in footnotes--numbered notes at the bottom of the page (corresponding to the numbers in text) that show exactly where the information was obtained from. There are times, however, when such acknowledgements can be incorporated easily in the text without their being distracting or obtrusive. It is indicated in the submission guidelines that "Authors should submit an original paper in English," and further specify that "Papers that are out of the journal scope or contain any form of plagiarism can be rejected...”
