Plagiarism Checking

The following types of plagiarism are considered by JBE:

1. Full Plagiarism: Previously published content without text, idea, and grammar changes is considered total plagiarism. It involves presenting exact text from a source as one’s own.

2. Partial Plagiarism: Suppose content is a mixture of multiple sources, where the author has extensively rephrased text. In that case, it is known as partial plagiarism.

3. Self-Plagiarism: When an author reuses complete or portions of their pre-published research, it is known as self-plagiarism. Complete self-plagiarism is when an author republishes their previously published work in a new journal.

If plagiarism is detected by the editorial board member, reviewer, editor, etc., in any stage of the article process- before or after acceptance, during editing, or at a page proof stage. We will alert the same to the author(s) and will ask them to rewrite the content or cite the references from where the content has been taken. 

If plagiarism is detected after publication, the Journals will conduct an investigation. If plagiarism is found, the competent authority of the JBE Journal will contact the author's institute and funding agencies. The paper containing the plagiarism will be marked on each page of the PDF. The manuscript may also be formally retracted depending on the extent of the plagiarism.
