Plagiarism Policy

The Journal of Smart Agriculture and Environmental Technology (JOSAET) takes a strong stand against any form of plagiarism. We define plagiarism as the unattributed use of the words, ideas, or findings of others, without proper citation or acknowledgment.

All manuscripts submitted to JOSAET will be checked for originality and proper citation. Authors should ensure that they have written and submitted entirely original works. If authors have used the work and/or words of others, these sources must be appropriately cited or quoted.

Types of Plagiarism

We consider several forms of plagiarism, including:

  • Direct Plagiarism: The copying of another's work word for word, without attribution.
  • Paraphrasing Plagiarism: The rewriting of others' work, while maintaining the original ideas, without proper citation.
  • Plagiarism of Ideas: The use of others' ideas without attribution or permission.
  • Self-Plagiarism: The reuse of one's own previously published work without citing the original publication.

If a case of plagiarism comes to light after a paper is published in JOSAET, we will conduct a preliminary investigation. If plagiarism is found, we will notify the author's institution, list the paper as retracted, and make a public note on the paper in question.
