Plagiarism, copying of ideas, text, data and other creative works without proper citation, is a serious violation. Basic and Applied Education Research Journal defines plagiarism as a case in which a paper reproduces another work with at least 25% similarity and without citation. The author(s) will be asked a chance for rebuttal if evidence of plagiarism is found before/after acceptance or after publication of the paper. If the arguments are not found to be satisfactory, the manuscript will be drawn back and the author(s) sanctioned from publishing papers for a period to be determined by the responsible Editor(s). Turnitin or other software will be used by the editorial team to check for similarities of submitted manuscripts with existing literature. The maximum allowed similarity index is 25%.
