Plagiarism Policy

  1. Definition of Plagiarism:

Plagiarism is the act of using someone else's words, ideas, or intellectual property without proper attribution or permission, presenting them as one's own work. This includes, but is not limited to, copying text verbatim, paraphrasing without proper citation, and using someone else's ideas without acknowledgment.

  1. Policy Statement:

The "Journal for Business Research Review" (JBRR) is committed to upholding the highest standards of academic integrity and ethical publishing practices. Plagiarism in any form is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

  1. Responsibilities of Authors:

Authors submitting manuscripts to JBRR must ensure that all work presented is original and properly attributed. Authors should accurately cite and reference all sources used in their research, including their own previously published work, to avoid any instance of plagiarism. Any borrowed material, whether it be text, ideas, images, or data, must be appropriately cited according to the journal's citation guidelines.

  1. Detection and Investigation:

JBRR utilizes plagiarism detection software to screen all submitted manuscripts for potential instances of plagiarism. In cases where plagiarism is suspected, the editorial board will conduct a thorough investigation. This may involve comparing the submitted manuscript with existing literature and consulting with experts in the field.

  1. Consequences of Plagiarism:

If plagiarism is identified in a submitted manuscript, the following actions may be taken:

  1. Rejection of the manuscript.
  2. Notification of the author's institution or employer.
  3. Denial of future submissions from the author.
  4. Publication of a formal retraction or correction notice, if necessary.
  5. Legal action, if the severity of plagiarism warrants it.
  6. Appeals Process:

Authors who believe their work has been unfairly accused of plagiarism may appeal the decision by providing evidence to support their claim. The editorial board will review the appeal and make a final determination.

  1. Education and Prevention:

JBRR is committed to educating authors about the importance of academic integrity and proper citation practices. Authors are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the journal's guidelines and seek guidance if they are unsure about how to properly cite sources. Additionally, JBRR provides resources and workshops on plagiarism prevention to support authors in upholding ethical standards in their research.
