In accordance with its publishing policies, International Journal of Progressive Studies in Education (IJOPSE) obliges each study that has undergone the blind review process to be detected for plagiarism to protect the integrity of the study.
The plagiarism detection is done by Turnitin and IThenticate softwares. The matches found in each study after plagiarism detection are analysed in detail and those matches with correct reference and cross-reference are sorted. In the next step, the mistakes in the remaining matches are determined and reported to the editorial board. The board, then, makes a final decision in the light of the plagiarism detection report. The author(s) may be asked to correct the mistakes listed in the report or the study may be returned to the author(s).
IJOPSE accepts studies with a plagiarism rate of maximum 15%.
