Plagiarism and Excessive Re-use of Author's Earlier Material:
The contents of the manuscripts should be original and they should not not being submitted simultaneously for consideration towards publication in another conference or journal. All submissions will be checked by the iThenticate tool for plagiarism and self-plagiarism. In cases of plagiarism or self-plagiarism all results will be reported to IEEE for further investigation.
Similarity Index Explanation:
The similarity index does not reflect iThenticate's assessment of whether a paper has or has not been plagiarized. Similarity Reports are simply a tool to help our editorial board 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 of yours). 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.
