Refund Policy

Wrongly deposited money or extra deposited money will be processed for refund within 2 days of notification. However, as per the banking process it may take upto 3 weeks to reflect in your bank but once the paper/article is published, the publication fee will not be returned to the author.

Withdrawal Policy

Some authors request withdrawal of manuscript from the publication process after submission. In some instances, the request for withdrawal is made within a few days after submission, however, at times the request is made very late, when the paper is about to be published. Withdrawing manuscripts late from publication wastes the valuable resources and efforts made in evaluation process by the editorial board. So, it is advised that any request for the withdrawal should be made within 2 days of paper submission.

IJARIIT Policies

It is a general principle of scholarly journal that the editor of the journal is solely responsible for deciding which articles submitted to the journal shall be published. In making this decision the editor is guided by policies of the journal’s editorial board and constrained by the requirements of copyright infringement and plagiarism. The core aim of following these principles is to come up with an online archive of scholarly journal with a permanent database of quality research work. Once published, these articles shall remain online for an unforeseeable future. However, there are circumstances when a published article must be retracted or even removed. Such circumstances should be rare and must be undertaken only as a last resort.

Article withdrawal

Article withdrawal is applicable on manuscripts that have been accepted for publication but have not been formally published. These manuscripts are categorised as Article In Press. Withdrawal is acceptable on manuscript that contain errors, or may have been accidentally submitted twice. Also applicable under circumstances when the manuscript may represent infringements of copyright, intentional multiple submission, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data etc. These Articles in Press can be “withdrawn” from the journal. Once withdrawn, the original HTML Page and PDF file will be replaced by a new HTML Page and PDF file stating that the said article has been withdrawn as per the IJARIIT policy on Article in Press withdrawal policy.

Article retraction

Retraction include infringements of professional ethical codes, such as submission in multiple journals, bogus claims of authorship, unoriginal work, fraudulent use of data etc. Occasionally, retraction is being used to correct errors in submission or publication. The retraction of an article by its authors or the editor following the advice of the members of the scholarly community is what most of the journals does under given circumstances. Standards for dealing with retractions have been developed by a number of scholarly bodies, and these best practices are being followed for article retraction by IJARIIT:

  1. A retraction note titled as “Retraction” followed by the paper title signed by the authors and/or the editor is published in the subsequent issue of the journal and also in the contents list.
  2. The online article which is being retracted is preceded by a retraction note. The note mentions the article with retraction message on it.
  3. The retracted article remained unchanged except for a watermark with message “retracted” on each page of the manuscript.
Article removal: legal limitations

Under some rare circumstances, complete removal or article from the database is required. This extreme action is taken only when the said article clearly infringes on someone’s legal rights or the article is defamatory or the removal is subject to a court order, or if the article, when acted upon, might pose a serious mental, physical or social health risk. Under these circumstances, the metadata (Title and Authors) will remain and the manuscript will be replaced by a screen mentioning that the article in question is being removed for legal reasons.

Article replacement

In some cases where the article may pose some health risk, the authors of the article may wish to retract only the part that are objectionable and replace it with the appropriately corrected version. In this situation, the original article will be replaced by the revised one with a message that the current article is a revised version of a retracted article.

Plagiarism is an act of copying someone else’s work without due knowledge and acknowledgment of the original author. Plagiarism also include self-plagiarism when an author utilizes a big portion of their own previously published work without using appropriate references in a new research work. This can include getting the same paper published in multiple journals to publishing a previously published manuscript by adding some new data.

Types of Plagiarism
The following types of plagiarism are considered as plagiarism by IJARIIT:
Full Plagiarism: A complete replication of the paper with no changes in text, grammar, idea and data.
Partial Plagiarism: Exact rephrase of the text or data from various sources, mixed and match together.
Self-Plagiarism: The article previously published is being used by the same author either full or partial in the same journal or a different one.
