IJTC has a very strict anti-plagiarism policy which embraces both plagiarism and self-plagiarism, due to the notion that academic research work is supposed to be original and thus should be published only once, at least in archival publications of large dissemination scope such as IJTC publications. Plagiarism may be accidental or blatant and there is even self-plagiarism.
Accidental or Unintentional
One may not even know that they are plagiarizing. It is the Author s responsibility to make certain that they understand the difference between quoting and paraphrasing, as well as the proper way to cite material.
Here, Authors are well aware that they are plagiarizing. Purposefully using someone else's ideas or work without proper acknowledgment is plagiarism. This includes turning in borrowed or bought research papers as one's own.
Turning in the same term paper (or substantially the same paper) for two courses without getting permission from one's instructor is plagiarism.
Plagiarism not only is legally wrong but also morally corrosive. . . . Any paper based upon the writing of others should acknowledge every source used. In a reference paper, the acknowledgements are made in footnotes--numbered notes at the bottom of the page (corresponding to the numbers in text) that show exactly where the information was obtained. There are times, however, when such acknowledgements can be incorporated smoothly in the text without their becoming distracting or obtrusive.
