PAKDD2008 Paper Submission Policy

  1. The paper must fit the scope of PAKDD*

  2. The paper must conform to the required format and page limitations*.

  3. The paper must be original, and must not be published or under consideration to be published elsewhere.

  4. Plagiarism is unacceptable.


    The verbatim copy and/or reuse of material (text, formula, graphics) from other published papers (either by the author or by other authors) without explicit citation, is considered to be plagiarism. Quotations should be clearly identified and include the appropriate citation. For example, "According to Smith and Jones (2007) '......'", or "'......' (Smith and Jones, 2007).




    When a new submission is based on the authors or on other author's previously published works, the citation of the previous works should be clearly given in the new paper. Furthermore, the novel contribution of the current paper, which extends the previous works, should be clearly indicated.

This policy on plagiarism for PAKDD is mainly from the policy on plagiarism directly quoted from the IEEE: "How to Handle Plagiarism: New Guidelines"

* The scope of PAKDD and the required format and page limitations are indicated in the Call For Papers of PAKDD.
