Plagiarism Guidelines / Policy

The Journal of Social Sciences Review (JSSR) is dedicated solely to promoting original and scholarly work. The Journal adheres to the Zero Tolerance for Plagiarism program. As a result, the Editorial Board is very stringent when it comes to plagiarism. The writers are responsible for ensuring that they submitted an entirely original work and that sufficient citations were used to provide due credit. Plagiarism, in any form, is immoral publishing activity that the Journal will not tolerate.

It is unreasonable and unethical, according to the Journal, to take someone else's ideas and work without giving them credit. Plagiarism is when you copy one sentence from someone else's manuscript, or even one of your own that has already been published, without properly citing it; instead, use your words. The editorial board maintains complete authority to refuse a submitted manuscript's review process if it contains minor or significant plagiarism and cancels publication if the victim(s) of plagiarism complain.

The JSSR strictly adheres to the Pakistani Higher Education Commission's (HEC) plagiarism regulation. According to HEC guidelines, the similarity index should be less than 20%, with single sources being less than 5%. Only plagiarism-free papers will be processed and evaluated, and the authors are responsible for addressing this problem. Therefore, it is suggested that articles may be submitted after going through the check for plagiarism without entering in the repository. Suppose authors committed any unethical act to correct plagiarism in the text of the article and deceived the Journal's administration. In that case, they will be responsible for all types of consequences and punishment from any relevant authority. In this case, The RMS & College/ JSSR will not be held liable for any immoral behavior on the writers' part.
