Plagiarism Policy

When a writer tries to pass off someone else's writing as their own, that is called plagiarism. Self-plagiarism, also known as duplicate publication, happens when a writer recycles significant portions of their own published work without citing the original source. This can include salami-slicing, in which authors add little quantities of fresh data to a prior work, or having a same study published in several publications.

When is a paper checked for Plagiarism?

All the submitted manuscripts for publication are checked for plagiarism after submission and before starting review.

How is Plagiarism Handled?
Since plagiarism is unacceptable, the Editorial Board of Wukari International Studies Journal has established the following policy, which outlines precise actions that will be taken when plagiarism is found in an article that is submitted for publication in the journal, depending on the percentage of plagiarim detected:

Minor Plagiarism: A brief passage from another article is copied verbatim, but no substantial information or concept is borrowed from the other work.

Verdict: The paper is sent back to the author with request to cite the owner properly 


 Intermittent: When a work contains a large amount of plagiarism without properly citing the source.

Verdict: The paper is rejected outright and the author is advised to revise the paper to bear a higher degree of originality.


 Severe: When a manuscript contains a large amount of original findings or concepts from another journal.

Verdict: The paper is ourightly rejected and the author is banned for one year
