“Plagiarism means copying someone else's text or ideas and passing the copied material as your own work. You must both separate and identify the copied text from your text and give credit to (i.e., cite the source) the source of the copied text to avoid accusations of plagiarism.  Plagiarism is considered fraud and has potentially harsh consequences including loss of job, loss of reputation, and the assignation of reduced or failing degrees. Roa Iktissadia Review is strictly against any unethical act of copying or plagiarism in any form. Plagiarism is said to have occurred when large portions of a manuscript have been copied from existing previously published resources. Every manuscript submitted for publication in Roa Iktissadia Review will be checked for plagiarism using text-matching software.

If low plagiarism is detected, the corresponding author will be alerted and asked to either rewrite the text or quote the text exactly and to cite the original source. If at least 20% of the original submission is plagiarized during initial stages of review it will be rejected and not considered for publication in Roa Iktissadia Review.
