IEEE CrossCheck and ISCAS2018
Plagiarism and Excessive Re-use of Earlier Material
The content of any submissions should be original and must not be submitted simultaneously for consideration towards publication in any other conference or journal. All submissions will be checked for plagiarism using IEEE CrossCheck. Possible violations will be reported to IEEE for further investigation. Reuse of material previously published by the authors is possible under the conditions that the authors fully disclose (cite) the reference and clearly highlight the innovative contribution of the ISCAS2018 submission and the significance of this contribution. The addition of the fifth page of reference only give the authors the opportunity to mention all their relevant previous work without compromising on all other significant references and on the technical content of the manuscript.
Similarity Index Explanation
The similarity index produced by IEEE CrossCheck does not reflect an assessment of whether a paper has or has not been plagiarized. Similarity Reports are simply a tool to help our Technical Program Committee to find sources that contain text similar to the submitted documents. The similarity score is a “cumulative” sum of similarity scores with all documents in the CrossCheck database and as such a high similarity does not automatically imply plagiarism (for example you may be using segments from a technical report or previous paper of yours, which must be appropriately cited). The decision to deem any work plagiarized is made carefully and only after an in-depth examination of both the submitted paper and sources that have similar text. Similarly, if the overlap with the author’s previous publications is too large, there is a risk that reviewers and TC members may not find the contribution significant enough.
