1.Plagiarism Policy:

Plagiarism is using, without acknowledgement, someone else?s ideas or work. You must both delineate (i.e., separate and identify) the copied text from your text and give credit to (i.e., cite the source) the source of the copied text to avoid accusations of plagiarism. Plagiarism is considered fraud and has potentially harsh consequences including loss of job, loss of reputation, and the assignation of reduced or failing grade in a course. Institutions that are prepared to prevent or handle plagiarism benefit from higher levels of academic honesty. This section contains best practices and advice for building academic integrity policies to support your education community. If you submit an assignment that contains work that is not your own, without clearly indicating this to the marker (fully acknowledging your sources using the rules of the specified academic referencing style), you are committing ? plagiarism? and this is academic misconduct. It is important to understand that if you do not acknowledge fully the sources that have contributed to and informed your work you are misrepresenting your knowledge and abilities.

All manuscripts submitted for publication to IJMRSET are cross-checked for Plagiarism / Similarity Index using Turnitin / PlagScan software.
