Plagiarism Policy

The Cosmic Journal of Physics (CJP) has a strict policy against plagiarism. Plagiarism is the act of taking someone else's work and passing it off as your own. It is a serious academic offense and can result in the rejection of a manuscript, the retraction of a published article, and even disciplinary action against the author.

The CJP defines plagiarism as follows:

  • Direct plagiarism: The copying of another person's work without attribution.
  • Paraphrasing plagiarism: The rephrasing of another person's work without attribution.
  • Self-plagiarism: The reuse of one's own previously published work without proper attribution.

All authors submitting manuscripts to the CJP are required to agree to the journal's plagiarism policy. This policy states that all authors must submit original work and that any borrowed material must be properly cited.

The CJP uses a plagiarism detection software to screen all manuscripts submitted to the journal. If plagiarism is detected, the manuscript will be rejected and the author may be banned from submitting future manuscripts to the journal.

If you are unsure whether or not your work constitutes plagiarism, please consult the CJP's plagiarism policy or contact the journal's editorial office for assistance.

Here are some tips for avoiding plagiarism:

  • Always cite your sources properly. This means including the author(s), title, publication date, and page numbers for any borrowed material.
  • Do not paraphrase without attribution. If you are paraphrasing another person's work, you must still cite the source.
  • Avoid self-plagiarism by properly citing any previously published work that you are reusing in your new manuscript.
  • Use plagiarism detection software to check your work before submitting it to the journal.

By following these tips, you can help to ensure that your work is original and that you are not plagiarizing the work of others.
