Plagiarism Policy

Using the ideas and work of others without giving them credit is unfair, unethical and dishonest. Using or copying even one sentence from someone else’s research work or paper, or even one of your own papers that have previously been published, without marking proper citation is considered plagiarism and will violate copyright policies.

Aksh – The Advance Journal is committed to publishing only original articles, i.e., material that has neither been published elsewhere, nor is under review elsewhere. Articles that are found to have been plagiarized from an article by other authors, whether published or unpublished, will incur plagiarism sanctions.

The following plagiarism sanctions will be applied and leads to immediate rejection of the infringing manuscript.

Duplicate Submission

Manuscripts that are found to have been published elsewhere, or to be under review elsewhere, will incur duplicate submission/publication sanctions. If authors have used their own previously published work or work that is currently under review, as the basis for a submitted manuscript, they are required to cite the previous work and indicate how their submitted manuscript offers novel contributions beyond those of the previous work.

Research Documentation

It is important that the authors record the results of their research in a form that its analysis and review could be done before the publication and by other researchers for a reasonable period after publication. Fabrication, like reporting results that were never conducted or deceive or intent to mislead, is a form of scientific misconduct, regarded as highly unethical, and in some jurisdictions may be illegal.

Data Fabrication and Falsification

Submitted manuscripts that are found to have either fabricated or falsified experimental results, including the manipulation of images, will incur data fabrication and falsification sanctions.
