Plagarisim policy

Any unethical act of plagiarism or copying in any form is strongly condemned by MJES. When significant sections of a paper are taken verbatim from already-published materials, it is considered plagiarism. Turnitin Plagiarism Detection Software is used to cross-check all manuscripts submitted to the journal for publication for plagiarism. When plagiarism is discovered in a manuscript during the first stages of review, it is immediately rejected and is not given consideration for publication in MJES. We will reject a paper and return it to the author for revision if it contains more than 20% similarity index and more than 5% plagiarism in the reference sources, as determined by Turnitin Plagiarism Detection.

Types of Plagiarism

The journal takes into account the following forms of plagiarism:

Self-Plagiarism: Self-plagiarism is the practice of an author using whole or parts of their previously published research. When a writer publishes their own previously published work in a new journal, it is considered complete self-plagiarism.

Partial Plagiarism: Partial plagiarism occurs when an author extensively paraphrases text while combining ideas from several separate sources.

Complete Plagiarism: it happens when an author submits another person's work under their own name or hires a writer to complete a paper for an author, then turns in the work with the author's name on it.

Policy and Action for Plagiarism

In addition to respecting intellectual property, MJES seeks to uphold and honor writers' original works. Manuscripts that contain copied text violate the requirements for originality, quality, and research. Therefore, it is expected of all writers that they adhere to ethical guidelines and refrain from any kind of plagiarism when submitting their work to a journal. If an author's work is suspected of plagiarizing from another author, the journal will get in touch with them and ask them to provide an explanation within two weeks. In the event that the writer fails to respond to the journal within the time limit specified, the Vice Chancellor of the university with whom the writer is affiliated or the Director, Dean, or Head of the relevant College, Institution, or Organization will be notified in order to take appropriate action against the writer.

If published manuscripts are discovered to include plagiarism, MJES will take severe action against them and delete them entirely from the Journal website as well as any other websites where the paper is indexed and listed. When it is determined that the manuscript contains plagiarism from a previously published work, MJES will stand by the original author and the manuscript regardless of the publisher. It may also choose to implement the committee's additional recommendations or take any or all of the following immediate actions:

- The MJES editorial office will get in touch with the Vice Chancellor of the university to which the author(s) is(are) associated as well as the Director, Dean, or Head of the relevant College, Institution, or Organization right away.
- MJES will take down any links to the full-text article and remove the published manuscript's PDF copy from the website. The title of the published manuscript must include the phrase "plagiarized manuscript."- MJES has the right to permanently prohibit writers, disable their journal account, and reject any and all of their future submissions for a period of three, five, or ten years.
- The list of these authors and their complete contact information may also be seen by MJES on the journal's website.
- Any additional course of action that the Committee recommends, that the Editorial Board occasionally decides is appropriate for the particular situation, or both.
