Plagiarism Policy/ Publication Ethics
At Transatlantic Journal of Multidisciplinary Research (TJMR) we strive to maintain the highest standards of publication ethics and take all necessary steps against all forms of publication malpractices. We believes that ethical publishing requires the active participation of all parties involved in the publication process – the authors, reviewers, editors, and publisher.
Plagiarism is a very serious academic crime. We have zero tolerance for plagiarism here.
What constitute plagiarism
It involves the criminal copying of ideas, text, data and other creative work (e.g. tables, figures and graphs) and presenting it as original research without proper citation. Here a paper is said to be plagiarized an author reproduces another work with at least 25% similarity index without proper citation.
Policy on misconduct
In the event of suspected case of plagiarism or breach of any other research misconduct, the author(s) will be offered a chance to defend their claims. If their arguments are found to lack substance, the journal reserves the right to reject/retract or withdraw the paper, decline further submissions from the offending author(s) for a period of up to four years and inform all interested parties including relevant journal editors and authors, and the author’s institution of affiliation of such misconduct.
