Plagiarism Policy

 

Plagiarism can be defined as the stealing of someone else’s ideas, thoughts, work contents or procedures. It can be done in any type of work, including research and educational contents. When the content is being re used without proper citations to the creator or without the knowledge of the creator, it is also termed as Plagiarism according to White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. If taken from the internet without proper citations of the creator, the process can also be termed as Plagiarism.

Plagiarism in academic fields is considered as academic dishonesty or fraud wherein the user is not capable of framing the ideas and contents but depends on someone else for the innovative ideas and thoughts. Plagiarism has different categories, namely – self, unintentional or blatant. Self Plagiarism refers to the process where the contributor or Author copies his/her idea even after it has been published and credited for. Unintentional plagiarism arises from the fact that the author is careless about the citations and sources from which information is derived. On the other hand, blatant Plagiarism is considered as a crime because it is the intentional use of the content without giving credit to the creator.

JCPP’s Plagiarism Policy

At JCPP, the authors and contributors are responsible for their own action. JCPP strongly condemns plagiarism and if any content is found to be plagiarized JCPP has the rights to cancel the membership of the author and restrict him/her from accessing the site. In order to check for Plagiarism, authors are requested to make use of the online Plagiarism tools which are available before submitting their work as plagiarized content will be harshly dealt with. The decisions of JCPP will be final in this case.

 

Peer Review System

Peer review is the checking and scrutinizing process by which an article, content or a manuscript submitted by an Author is checked by the members of JCPP who are specialist in that field of study. The content which is submitted to the JCPP Open Access has to go through peer review in order to be checked and published. Peer Review system provides the contributors with an advantage where their content is checked without any cost by the colleagues to check if the contribution has met the specific standards.

Peer review procedure provides you with some advantages which include enhancing the quality of your content and manuscripts, checking out the loopholes in your content which might have been missed by you, authenticating the fact that your journal or manuscript is not plagiarized and is the end product of your efforts only. Thus, the Peer Review system actually polishes your manuscript and makes it more presentable to the scientific society.
