The Indian Engineering Journal takes plagiarism very seriously and adheres to a strict policy on plagiarism. Plagiarism is defined as the use of another person's work, ideas, or words without proper attribution or permission. This includes the use of direct quotes, paraphrasing, or summarizing without giving credit to the original source.

The Indian Engineering Journal uses plagiarism detection software to screen all submissions for potential plagiarism. If plagiarism is identified in a manuscript, the following actions may be taken:

  1. Rejection of the Manuscript: If significant portions of the manuscript are found to be plagiarized, the manuscript will be rejected immediately.

  2. Request for Revision: If the plagiarism is found to be minor or unintentional, the authors may be asked to revise their manuscript and properly cite the original sources.

  3. Retraction: If plagiarism is discovered after a manuscript has been published, the Indian Engineering Journal will issue a retraction and remove the article from our website. The authors may also be barred from submitting future manuscripts to our journal.

Authors are responsible for ensuring that their work is original and properly cited. Any instances of plagiarism, whether intentional or unintentional, are considered a violation of our publication ethics and malpractice guidelines and may result in rejection of the manuscript or retraction of the published article.

We encourage all authors to use proper citation practices and to familiarize themselves with the principles of academic integrity. If you have any questions about plagiarism or our policy on plagiarism, please contact our editorial team.
