Plagiarism is stealing others' ideas, text or results and incorporating them into one's own manuscript. The plagiarized manuscript that is presented with large copy-pasted data is inappropriate and would not be considered for publication in IJWE. If any article under process in IJWE is identified having plagiarism will lead to an explanation from authors and the publication process will be stopped. The authors will be given a fair chance to explain and justify their actions. In case of an unsatisfactory response, the article will be retracted. The notice of such retraction will be published online immediately and in the next issue of the printed version of the journal.
Once plagiarism turns out to be evident post-publication, IJWE might correct or retract the publication depending on the degree of plagiarism. IJWE uses third-party services for Similarity Check, a service that uses software tools to screen submitted manuscripts for text overlap.
