Policy of Screening for Plagiarism

Al-Kharaj: Journal of Islamic Economic and Business  board recognizes that plagiarism is not acceptable and therefore establishes the following policy stating specific actions (penalties) when plagiarism is identified in an article that is submitted for publication in the Al-Kharaj: Journal of Islamic Economic and Business. All the manuscripts will be subjected to pre-screening of plagiarism check by using Turnitin Software. The editor will conduct the screening process once the paper is received.


Definition:

Plagiarism involves the "use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's original work."


Policy:

Papers must be original, unpublished, and not pending publication elsewhere. Any material taken verbatim from another source needs to be identified as different from the present original text by (1) indentation, (2) use of quotation marks, and (3) identification of the source. Any document of an amount exceeding fair use standards (herein defined as more than two or three sentences or the equivalent thereof) or any graphic material reproduced from another source requires permission from the copyright holder and, if feasible, the original author(s) and also involves identification of the source; e.g., previous publication. When plagiarism is identified, the Editor Chief responsible for the review of this paper and will agree on measures according to the extent of plagiarism detected in the article in agreement with the following guidelines:


Level of Plagiarism

 1.Minor:

A short section of another article is plagiarized without any significant data or idea taken from the other paper

Action: A warning is given to the authors and a request to change the text and properly cite the original article is made

2.Intermediate:

A significant portion of a paper is plagiarized without proper citation to the initial paper

Action: The submitted article is rejected, and the authors are forbidden to submit further articles for one year

3. Severe :

A significant portion of a paper is plagiarized that involves reproducing original results or ideas presented in another publication

Action: The paper is rejected, and the authors are forbidden to submit further articles for 2 years.


It is understood that all authors are responsible for the content of their submitted paper as they all checked the Al-Kharaj: Journal of Islamic Economic and Business. If a penalty is imposed for plagiarism, all authors will be subject to the same punishment. If the second case of plagiarism by the same author(s) is identified, a decision on the measures to be enforced will be made by the Editorial board (Editor-in-Chief and Editorial members) with the Chair of the Editor in Chief. The author(s) might be forbidden to submit further articles forever. This policy also applies to material reproduced from another publication by the same author(s). If an author uses text or figures that have previously been published, the corresponding paragraphs or data should be identified and the previous publication referenced. It is understood that in the case of a review paper or a paper of a tutorial nature, much of the material was previously published.

The author should identify the source of the previously published material and obtain permission from the original author and the publisher. If an author submits a manuscript to Al-Kharaj: Journal of Islamic Economic and Business with significant overlap with a document submitted to another journal simultaneously, and this overlap is discovered during the review process or after the publications of both papers, the editor of the other journal is notified, and the case is treated as a severe plagiarism case. Significant overlap means the use of identical or almost identical figures and identical or slightly modified text for one-half or more of the paper. For self-plagiarism of less than one-half of the paper but more than one-tenth of the article, the case shall be treated as intermediate plagiarism. If self-plagiarism is confined to the methods section, the matter shall be considered minor plagiarism.

If an author uses some of his previously published material to clarify the presentation of new results, the previously published article shall be identified, and the difference to the present publication shall be mentioned. Permission to republish must be obtained from the copyright holder. In the case of a manuscript that was originally published in conference proceedings and then is submitted for publication into Al-Kharaj: Journal of Islamic Economic and Business either in identical or in expanded form, the authors must identify the name of the conference proceedings and the date of the printing and obtain permission to republish from the copyright holder. The editor may decide not to accept this paper for publication.

However, an author shall be permitted to use material from an unpublished presentation, including visual displays, in a subsequent journal publication. In the case of a paper being submitted, that was originally published in another language, the title, date, and journal of the original publication must be identified by the authors, and the copyright must be obtained. The editor may accept such a translated release to bring it to the attention of a wider audience. The editor may select a specific paper that had been published (e.g., a "historic" paper) for republication to provide a better perspective of a series of articles published in one issue of Al-Kharaj: Journal of Islamic Economic and Business. This republication shall be identified as such, and the date and journal of the original publication shall be given. The permission of the author(s) and the publisher shall be obtained.

The Al-Kharaj: Journal of Islamic Economic and Business layout editor for the journal is responsible for maintaining the list of authors subjected to penalties and will check that no authors of a submitted paper are on this list. If a banned author is identified, the layout editor will inform the Editor-in-Chief who will take appropriate measures. This policy will be posted on the website with the instructions for submitting a manuscript, and a copy will be sent to the authors with the confirmation email upon initial receipt of their original paper. A sentence shall be added to the copyright transfer form to indicate that the author(s) have read the Plagiarism Policy.

Article Policy

Al-Kharaj: Journal of Islamic Economy and Business recognizes the importance of the integrity and completeness of the scholarly record to researchers and librarians and attaches the highest importance to maintaining trust in the authority of its electronic archive.

It is a general principle of scholarly communication that the editor of a learned journal is solely and independently responsible for deciding which articles submitted to the journal shall be published. In making this decision, the editor is guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and constrained by such legal requirements in force regarding libel, copyright infringement, and plagiarism.  An outcome of this principle is the importance of the scholarly archive as a permanent, historical record of the transactions of scholarship. Articles that have been publishing shall remain extant, exact, and unaltered as far as is possible. However, very occasionally circumstances may arise where an article is published that must later be retracted or even removed. Such actions must not be undertaken lightly and can only occur under exceptional circumstances. In all cases, our official archives will retain all article versions, including retracted or otherwise removed articles.

We designed this policy to address these concerns and to take into account current best practices in the scholarly and library communities.  As standards evolve and change, we will revisit this issue and welcome the input of scholarly and library communities. We believe these issues require international standards, and we will be active in lobbying various information bodies to establish international standards and best practices that the publishing and information industries can adopt. 

Article withdrawal

Only used for Articles in Press which represent early versions of articles and sometimes contain errors, or may have been accidentally submitted twice. Occasionally, but less frequently, the articles may represent infringements of professional, ethical codes, such as multiple submission, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data, or the like. Articles that have been accepted for publication but have not been formally published, and then found to be accidental duplicates of other published article(s), or are considered to violate our journal ethics guidelines in the view of the editors will be withdrawn. Withdrawn means that the article content (HTML and PDF) is removed from the issue.

Article retraction

Article retraction (see COPE: RETRACTION GUIDELINES) is an infringement of professional, ethical codes, such as multiple submission, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data, or the like. Occasionally a retraction will be used to correct errors in submission or publication. The retraction of an article by its authors or editor has long been an occasional feature of the learning world. Standards for dealing with retractions have been developed by several library and scholarly bodies, and this best practice is adopted for article retraction by Al-Kharaj: Journal of Islamic Economy and Business:

  • A retraction note titled "Retraction: [article title]" signed by the authors and/or the editor is published in the paginated part of a subsequent issue of the journal and listed in the contents list.
  • In the electronic version, a link is made to the original article.
  • The online article is preceded by a screen containing the retraction note. It is to this screen that the link resolves; the reader can then proceed to the article itself.
  • The original article is retained unchanged save for a watermark on the .pdf indicating on each page that it is "retracted."
  • The HTML version of the document is removed.

Article removal: legal limitations

In a minimal number of cases, it may be necessary to remove an article from the online database. The removal of the article will occur when the article is defamatory or infringes others' legal rights, or when the article is, or we have good reason to expect it will be, the subject of a court order, or where the article if acted upon pose a severe health risk. In these circumstances, while the metadata (Title and Authors) will be retained, the text will be replaced with a screen indicating the article has been removed for legal reasons.

Article replacement

In cases where the article, if acted upon, might pose a severe health risk, the authors of the original article may wish to retract the flawed original and replace it with a corrected version. In these circumstances, the procedures for retraction will be followed with the difference that the database retraction notice will publish a link to the corrected re-published article and a history of the document.
