Authors should as a matter of fact be sure of the originality of their contents, while preparing the draft of manuscript. In case the authors have used the work and/or words of others, this must be appropriately cited or quoted. All the articles submitted to REJOST shall be screened for plagiarism using iThenticate (online plagiarism detection software). In case, plagiarism is detected during review/editorial process, such manuscript(s) will be rejected immediately. If the plagiarism is proven after publication, such manuscript(s) will be retracted from the journal and appropriate announcement will be placed in this regard. We can also consider appropriate action against authors based on the seriousness of the case. These include:

  • Debarring the authors from publishing in the Journal in future.
  • We can bring such cases to the notice of author’s funding agencies, author’s institutes (where they work) and to the original authors whose work has been plagiarized.
