Definition of Plagiarism

Plagiarism is the act of presenting someone else's work, ideas, words, or intellectual property as one's own, without proper attribution or permission. Plagiarism can take various forms, including but not limited to:

  1. Direct Copying: Reproducing verbatim text or content from another source without quotation marks and proper citation.

  2. Paraphrasing: Rewriting someone else's work in different words without proper attribution.

  3. Self-Plagiarism: Reusing one's own previously published work without appropriate citation or disclosure.

  4. Improper Citation: Failing to provide accurate and complete references to the original sources of ideas, data, or text.

Plagiarism Detection

ANVI utilizes plagiarism detection software to screen submitted manuscripts for potential instances of plagiarism. Authors are also encouraged to proactively check their work for plagiarism before submission.

Consequences of Plagiarism

Plagiarism is a breach of trust and academic integrity. Authors who engage in plagiarism, whether intentional or unintentional, face serious consequences, including but not limited to:

  1. Immediate Rejection: Manuscripts found to contain plagiarized content will be rejected without further review.

  2. Publication Retraction: If plagiarism is discovered in a published article, ANVI will take appropriate action, including retracting the article and informing relevant authorities.

  3. Author Blacklisting: Authors found guilty of plagiarism may be barred from submitting to ANVI in the future.

  4. Institutional Notification: ANVI may inform the authors' affiliated institutions and funding agencies of the plagiarism incident.

Preventing Plagiarism

Authors are responsible for ensuring that their work is original and properly cited. To avoid plagiarism, authors should:

  1. Cite Sources: Properly attribute all sources, including ideas, data, and text, using a recognized citation style.

  2. Quote and Paraphrase Correctly: When using the words or ideas of others, use quotation marks for direct quotes and provide proper attribution for paraphrased content.

  3. Self-Plagiarism: When reusing or repurposing previously published work, properly cite and disclose the original source.

  4. Be Aware of Electronic Sources: Properly cite electronic sources, including websites, databases, and online publications.
