The peer review process plays a vital role in successful scientific research publishing. We ARC Publications promises the transparent and quality peer review process. To assure this ARC Publications has an obligation to assist the scientific community in all aspects of publishing ethics, especially in cases of plagiarism.
Plagiarism is the "wrongful appropriation" and "stealing and publication" of another author's "language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions" and the representation of them as one's own original work. Plagiarism is considered academic dishonesty and a breach of journalistic ethics. It is subject to sanctions like penalties, suspension, and even expulsion.
ARC Publications does not encourage any form of Plagiarism and duplicate submissions. Hence, we strongly recommend our authors to thorough check of the article content before submitting it to our Journals for publication. We request our Authors to use "Plagiarism Checking software’s" to check plagiarism prior to submission as a preliminary step, although they are not completely reliable.
ARC Publications will check plagiarism for all the submitted articles before publishing online. If the plagiarism is observed by editors, peer reviewers or by editorial staff at any stage of publication process, it could be rejected based on the percentile of plagiarism occurred and it would be notified to author.
Similarity Check is a multi-publisher initiative to screen published and submitted content for originality. ARC Publications uses the iThenticate software to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. Wherever you see the “Similarity Check Deposited” or “Similarity Check Depositor” logos, you can be reassured that the publisher whose content you are reading is committed to actively combating plagiarism and publishing original research.
