Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore.
The IEEE provides SCOPUS with all of the IEEE Xplore digital library content so that the bibliographic information (what is seen on an abstract page in IEEE Xplore, including the abstract) can be made visible. While we do provide them with all of our content, it is not our policy to determine what Scopus will or will not index. Additionally, once SCOPUS does load IEEE records, and the abstract is viewable to their users, the user can then link back to IEEE Xplore and lands on the abstract page of that particular record, enabling you to either view through a subscription or purchase the full text article.
IEEE plagiarism policy:
- Level One pertains to the uncredited verbatim copying of a full paper, or the verbatim copying of a major portion (> 50%), or verbatim copying within more than one paper by the same author(s)
- Level Two pertains to the uncredited verbatim copying of large portion (between 20-50%) or verbatim copying within more than one paper by the same author(s).
- Level Three pertains to the uncredited verbatim copying of individual elements (paragraph(s), sentence(s), illustration(s), etc.) resulting in a significant portion (up to 20%) within a paper.
- Level Four pertains to uncredited improper paraphrasing of pages or paragraphs.
- Level Five pertains to the credited verbatim copying of a major portion of a paper without clear delineation. (e.g., quotes or indents)
What if the review of a claim results in a decision that plagiarism did occur?
There are several possible Corrective Actions that are available. Depending on the level of misconduct, one or all may be applied:
- Notice of violation in Xplore
- Prohibition from publishing in IEEE or periodical
- Rejection and return of papers in review and queues
- Referral to the IEEE Ethics and Member Conduct Committee
- Repeat offenders subject to increased penalty
Publication volunteers who review a Level 1 or Level 2
case may also choose to recommend an author-education course in place of a prohibition from publishing
. This option requires approval from the IEEE PSPB Chair.
