Plagiarism and Retraction Policy

The ethics statements for Institute of Innovative Research and Development are based on the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Code of Conduct guidelines available at www.ifird.com

  • All accepted papers will be checked for plagiarism using urkund (plagiarism Software). The acceptable plagiarism level is up to 20%. Plagiarism report will be sent to the author if the manuscript is detected with plagiarism levels higher than acceptable limits. The author needs to take corrective measures, so as to, bring the plagiarism below 20%, and resend the manuscript to the editor. The conference secretariat will not publish any paper, which fails in these criteria.
  • The published papers are also submitted to ‘CrossMark Metadata’. CrossMark allows scholars to easily identify instances of documents that are being actively maintained by their publishers. The appearances of a CrossMark logo on the published paper indicates that the publisher is taking care of or stewarding it through any updates, corrections, retractions, or other changes.
  • Even after publication, if the paper is found/ reported of plagiarism or false science, the author would be sent a ‘Retraction Notice’, and the paper will be revised/ retracted from the journal (according to the given situation).
