Plagiarism Policy

Shanlax International Journal of Education (SIJEd) is totally against any unethical act of copying or plagiarism in any form. Plagiarism is said to have occurred when large portions of a manuscript have been copied from previously published resources. All manuscripts submitted for publication to SIJEd are cross-checked for Plagiarism / Similarity Index using Turnitin software. Manuscripts found to be plagiarized during initial stages of review are out-rightly rejected and not considered for publication in the journal.

In the event of a manuscript being found to be plagiarized after publication, the Chief Editor will conduct preliminary investigation, may be with the help of a suitable committee constituted for the purpose. If the manuscript is found to be plagiarized beyond the acceptable limits, the paper must be formally retracted.
