IJSHU takes a serious view of ethical violations in academic publishing and discourage every form of plagiarism in the journal. Manuscripts submitted to IJSHU are checked for plagiarism before being sent for editorial review. If an article is found to violate the ethical publishing guidelines such as duplicate publication, fraudulent use of data, multiple submission and so on, the article will be withdrawn by IJSHU. Plagiarism can occur in two forms: 1) author(s) intentionally copy someone elses work and claim it as their own, or 2) author(s) copy her or his own previously published material either in full or in part, without providing appropriate references ( “self-plagiarism” or “duplicate publication”).
The International Journal of Sports Humanities will judge any case of plagiarism on its own merits. If plagiarism is detected, we will alert the author(s), asking her or him to either rewrite the text or quote the text exactly and to cite the original source. If the plagiarism is extensive (that is, if at least 25% of the original submission is plagiarized) the article may be rejected and the author’s institution/employer notified.
In order to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts, every manuscript submitted for publication to IJSHU is checked for plagiarism by Grammarly® and other anti-plagiarism tools.
