Screening for Plagiarism

Papers submitted to the International Journal of Arts Architecture & Design will be screened for plagiarism detection. Papers, having a similarity level of more than 10% will be rejected.

Plagiarism involves using another person’s thoughts or words as though they were your own, without permission, credit, or acknowledgment, or failing to cite the sources properly. Plagiarism can take diverse forms, from literal copying to paraphrasing the work of another.

  • Copying implies use of another author’s work word by word, in whole or in part, without permission, acknowledging or citing the source. This practice can be identified by comparing the source and the manuscript suspected of plagiarism.
  • Substantial copying implies reproduction of a significant part of another author's work without permission, acknowledgment, or citation. The actual term can be understood both in terms of quality and quantity, being often used in intellectual property. Condition refers to the relative value of the copied text in proportion to the work as a whole.
  • Paraphrasing involves taking ideas, words, or phrases from a source and crafting them into new sentences within the writing. This practice becomes unethical when the author does not properly cite or acknowledge the original work/author. This form of plagiarism is the more severe form to be identified.
