Authorship/Publication Ethics

Journal of Philosophical Investigations expects all published articles to contain a clear and accurate attribution of authorship. It is the responsibility of the author to ensure that all authors that contributed to the work are fairly acknowledged and that the published author list accurately reflects individual contributions. Where authorship disputes arise, Philosophical Investigations encourages journal editorial teams to follow the guidelines detailed.

Anti-Plagiarism Policy

The Quarterly Journal of Philosophical Investigations at the Department of Philosophy of the University of Tabriz- Iran regards plagiarism as a very serious offense. It is an illegal form of copying. 

Plagiarism is defined as the unacknowledged use of the work of others as if this were your own original work.

Examples of plagiarism: 

  • Copying and pasting from the Internet and posting somewhere else without proper citation
  • Putting your name on another person’s essay or project
  • Copying exact wording from another person’s text
  • Using another person’s photo, diagram, tables, sounds, or ideas without proper citation
  • Presenting research in your own words without providing references
  • Purchasing another person’s text and using it as your own
  • Presenting ideas in the same format and order as your research source

By submitting a paper for publication to the journal, Author(s) certify that: 

  • I/We are fully aware that plagiarism is wrong
  • I/We know that plagiarism is the use of another person’s idea or published work and to pretend that it is one’s own.
  • I/ We declare that each contribution to your project from the work(s) of other people's published works or unpublished sources have been acknowledged and source of information have been referenced.
  • I/We certify that you are solely responsible for any incomplete reference that may remain in my/our work.

Anti-plagiarism declaration:

         I have read and understood the Journal of Philosophical Investigations rules on plagiarism. I hereby declare that this piece of written work is the result of my own independent scholarly work and that in all cases material from the work of others (in books, articles, essays, dissertations, and on the internet) is acknowledged, and quotations and paraphrases are clearly indicated. No material other than that listed has been used. This written work has not previously or not yet been published.

Tips for Avoiding Plagiarism

  • Learn the citation expectations for each course.
  • When you take notes for a paper, be sure to cite sources so you don’t get mixed up later.
  • When you research online, be sure to find the original source of the information (Many Websites Plagiarize).
  • If you are really worried, ask your prof if you can submit a rough draft so she /he can check your citations.
  • When in doubt, cite! It is better to have too many citations than few
