IHRJ Plagiarism Policy

IHRJ has a strict anti-plagiarism policy and all submitted manuscripts are screened by our licensed plagiarism softwares:

1. Turnitin 

2. Plagiarism Checker X Pro

Upon submission, the manuscript undergoes a quick screening for its content as per the scope of the journal.

Then, the manuscript is checked for plagiarism and sent to an editorial board member for approval before being sent for peer review. It is at the sole discretion of our editors (based on the percentage of plagiarism encountered) that a plagiarized manuscript is rejected and/or the author is given some time to resubmit the corrected, non-plagiarized manuscript, which shall be treated as a fresh submission. 

This reduces the burden on our peer-reviewers  so that they can focus their time and effort on accessing the content of the manuscript, thus leading to an efficient peer-review.

Plagiarism is discouraged at every step and can lead to withdrawal of the manuscript/article.
