Plagiarism Policy

The Cosmic Journal of Arts and Humanities has a zero-tolerance policy on plagiarism. Plagiarism is the act of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as your own. This can be done intentionally or unintentionally, but it is always considered academic misconduct.

Examples of plagiarism include:

  • Copying text or ideas from another source without attribution
  • Paraphrasing another source without attribution
  • Using another source's structure or organization without attribution
  • Failing to cite a source correctly

Any instances of plagiarism detected in submitted manuscripts will result in the manuscript being rejected. In some cases, the authors may also be banned from submitting to the journal in the future.

To avoid plagiarism, authors should always cite their sources correctly. This can be done using a variety of citation styles, such as APA, MLA, or Chicago. Authors should also be careful to paraphrase their sources in their own words, rather than simply copying them.

If you are unsure whether or not something is plagiarism, it is always best to err on the side of caution and cite your source.

Here are some tips for avoiding plagiarism:

  • Keep track of all the sources you use in your research.
  • Take notes on your sources in your own words.
  • When you are writing, cite your sources whenever you use information or ideas from them.
  • If you are paraphrasing a source, be sure to put it in your own words.
  • Proofread your work carefully to make sure that you have cited all of your sources correctly.
