Plagiarism Screening Policy

Department of Arabic at The Islamia University of Bahawalpur publishes Research Journal Al-Uloom ul Arabia. Turnitin, a database that helps editors evaluate the originality of submitted articles, is followed by The Islamia University of Bahawalpur, Pakistan. Turnitin is used to analyze all supporting documentation and calculate the similarity index or plagiarism.


Plagiarism occurs when an author attempted to move off another person's work on his or her behalf. Duplicate publication, also known as self-plagiarism, occurs when an author reuses significant portions of his or her personal previously published work without properly referencing it. This can range from publishing the same paper in different publications to salami-slicing, in which authors add little quantities of fresh data to an existing paper.
