Plagiarism and Reaction

Plagiarism Check

Plagiarism Policy

Journal of Research in English Language Teaching (JR-ELT) intends to ensure that all authors are careful and comply with international standards for academic and scholarship integrity, particularly on the issue of plagiarism. They should ensure that they have written and submitted only entirely original works. If they have used the work and/or words of others, those should be appropriately cited or quoted.

Manuscripts submitted to JR-ELT will be screened for plagiarism using TURNITIN and website-based search engines before deciding whether an article passes the desk evaluation or not.


The articles published in JR-ELT will be considered to retract in the publication if:
1. They have clear evidence that the findings are unreliable, either as a result of misconduct (e.g. data fabrication) or honest error (e.g. miscalculation or experimental error)
2. The findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper crossreferencing, permission or justification (i.e. cases of redundant publication)
3. It constitutes plagiarism
4. It reports unethical research

The mechanism of retraction follows the Retraction Guidelines of Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) which can be accessed at
