The International Journal of Metaverse & Virtual Transformation (IJMVT) advocates adherence to the principles of ethics and integrity of science, which is why Iranian authors are required to upload their similarity check announced by IranDoc; and Plagiarism Checker will check the other articles.

The service was created by Iranian developers in 2015 and is actively functioning at academic institutions, universities, publishing houses, etc. in Iran. By automatically comparing the text received from the user with the full text of master's theses and doctoral theses in Irandoc databases, the searcher finds similar writings and reports the amount and sources of their information to the supervisor and the institute.

Transparent and manageable reporting data (search and ability to take properly cited sentences and list of references); colorizing all text similarities and generating a list of links to original sources; automatically determining the characters and letters replacement in the text, as well as the reverse automatic substitution into the text of the correct ones and search for modified version plagiarism; and one-page test rate is 2-4 seconds are the service advantages.

Plagiarism implies the use of another author's work without permission or acknowledgment. Plagiarism may have different forms from copying word by word to rewriting. While defining plagiarism the following definitions are taken into account:

Literal copying
Copying the work word by word, in general, or in parts, without permission or acknowledgment of the source. Literal copying is clearly plagiarism and is easily detected by plagiarism software.

Substantial copying
Replicating a substantial part of the work without permission and confirmation of the source. In determining what is "substantial", both the quantity and the quality of the copied content are relevant. Quality is measured by the relative value of copied text compared to the whole text. Where the essence of the work was copied, even if not a very big part of it, plagiarism is identified.

Copying may be made without literal replicating, used in the original work. This type of copying is known as paraphrasing and it may be the most difficult type of plagiarism to reveal.
Plagiarism in all its forms is unacceptable and will lead to immediate rejection of the paper along with possible sanctions against authors.
