Plagiarism Policy

At the Journal of Electrical Systems (JES), we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of academic integrity and ethical conduct. Plagiarism, in any form, is considered a serious violation of these principles. The following outlines our plagiarism policy:

1. Definition of Plagiarism:

Plagiarism is the act of presenting someone else's work, ideas, or intellectual property as one's own without giving proper credit. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Copying and pasting text from sources without citation.
  • Paraphrasing without proper attribution.
  • Using images, figures, or data without permission or proper acknowledgment.
  • Submitting someone else's work as your own.

2. Plagiarism Detection:

  • All submitted manuscripts undergo a plagiarism check using advanced plagiarism detection software.
  • Similarity reports are carefully reviewed by the editorial team.

3. Author Responsibility:

  • Authors are responsible for ensuring the originality of their work.
  • Properly cite and reference all sources used in the manuscript.
  • Provide appropriate attribution for ideas, concepts, and data that are not their own.

4. Editorial Actions:

  • Manuscripts with evidence of plagiarism will be rejected.
  • If plagiarism is detected after publication, the article may be retracted, and the author(s) may face further consequences.

5. Self-Plagiarism:

  • Authors should avoid self-plagiarism by properly referencing their own previous work.
  • Clearly indicate any overlap between submitted or published manuscripts.

6. Collaboration and Attribution:

  • Collaborative work should be appropriately acknowledged, and all contributors must be listed as authors or acknowledged in the manuscript.

7. Consequences of Plagiarism:

  • Authors found to have committed plagiarism may face immediate rejection of their submission.
  • For published articles, retractions may be issued, and the author(s) may be banned from submitting to JES in the future.

8. Reporting Plagiarism:

  • Readers, reviewers, and other stakeholders are encouraged to report suspected cases of plagiarism to the editorial office.

9. Plagiarism Prevention Tips:

  • Use citation styles consistently and correctly.
  • Clearly distinguish between your original work and cited material.
  • When in doubt, cite the source.

10. Continuous Improvement:

  • JES is committed to continuously improving its plagiarism detection methods and staying abreast of developments in plagiarism prevention.

Authors submitting to JES implicitly agree to abide by this plagiarism policy. We appreciate your commitment to maintaining the highest ethical standards in scholarly publishing.
