Originality Guidelines

All researchers and authors publishing with The American Publishing House must take care to present the content that is originally theirs. The content should be based on their own research and written in their own words. Under our policy, we welcome the submissions which are original, not published under any other publication house and not being considered to get published by some publication house. As we follow an author-centric approach of functioning, we take special care to protect the work of authors publishing with us. Hence we have a set of guidelines to help authors protect their work.

Plagiarism

The authors should avoid any kind of plagiarism, as it is an unacceptable practice. All kinds of plagiarism-verbatim copying, paraphrasing, using others’ contents without attributions or issuing copyrights, republishing an already existing publication, etc., are considered unethical and not welcomed by The American Publishing House.

Types Of Plagiarism

An author should ideally avoid any of the following types of plagiarism :-

  1. Verbatim Copying – It means to copy a significant amount of information from other persons work, without acknowledgement or References.
  2. Paraphrasing – It means to rearrange a significant amount of content of a text or modify it and use it without attribution.
  3. Using others’ content without attributions or issuing copyrights – It means to use any content (like, a statement, paragraph or some illustration) from someone’s work directly without attributions or issuing copyrights for it.
  4. Self Plagiarism – It means to use the content from one’s own work that is published earlier. Verbatim copying and paraphrasing of one’s earlier work-both are considered as self plagiarism. A fresh research based on an earlier one can be acceptable, if it builds upon the premises laid by the former research work. The validations for the same must be procured to assure the originality of the research.

Attributions

At TAPH, we appreciate that the researchers mention all the references to the other publications and carefully check them to be complete and accurate. At the end of the paper, a reference list for all the books, journals, chapters, or websites must be made in an alphabetical order as per described in the instructions for the authors.

Dealing with Plagiarism

At TAPH, we deal with the issues of plagiarism very seriously. We know the harm that plagiarism causes to one’s career. Hence, we deal with the alleged cases of plagiarism in a specific code of conduct. We follow an unbiased approach for this. We investigate upon all the aspects of a case very thoroughly, in order to take the right decisions. We take the decisions in an objective manner without being influenced by any matter.

TAPH has adopted the plagiarism checking software to inform us about the alleged cases of plagiarism brought to us. Also, we are not obliged to discuss these cases with third parties. If a complainant is found using a false identity or presents a false affiliation, and/or acts in an appropriate manner towards TAPH staff, TAPH holds a right to not deal with that case.
