Plagiarism Policy

The IJATR treats plagiarism as a serious issue. The plagiarism of another author's works is unethical, not to mention damaging the reputation of the publisher, author, and the author's institution. Articles containing plagiarism will be retracted from publication and will be reported to the proper authorities. Being found guilty of intentional plagiarism can negate lifetime achievements, so it needs to be taken very seriously. The IJATR scans every submitted article through plagiarism detection software (Turnitin and iThenticate) and recommends that authors use their software to ensure such errors do not occur.
