Plagiarism Policy

JMIFR will judge any case of plagiarism based on allowable limits. If plagiarism is detected by the editorial board member, reviewer, editor etc., at any stage of the article process - before or after acceptance, then we will alert the same to the author(s) and ask them to rewrite the content or to cite the references from where the content has been taken. If more than 30% of the paper is plagiarized - the article may be rejected and the same is notified to the author.

All the submitted manuscripts for publication are checked for plagiarism after submission and before starting the review stage. If plagiarism is detected more than 30%, it is found that the authors are very unlikely to revise the manuscript and submit a revised version. However, authors are welcome to do the required revisions and submit the manuscript as a new submission. Manuscripts submitted to the journal may be checked for originality using anti-plagiarism software (Turnitin).

In the case of a publication being submitted that was originally published in another language, the title, date and journal of the original publication must be identified by the authors, and the copyright must be obtained. The editor may accept such a translated publication to bring it to the attention of a wider audience.

Self-plagiarism is a related issue. In this document we define self-plagiarism as the verbatim or near-verbatim reuse of significant portions of one's own copyrighted work without citing the original source. Note that self-plagiarism does not apply to publications based on the author's own previously copyrighted work (e.g., appearing in a conference proceedings) where an explicit reference is made to the prior publication. Such reuse does not require quotation marks to delineate the reused text but does require that the source be cited. For more information, please refer to JMIFR's ethics and malpractice, click here



When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her submitted manuscript, the author must immediately notify the editor or editorial team. If the author has any questions/concerns or complaints about our journal (JMIFR), please do not hesitate to contact us at
