Plagiarism Policy

In an effort to further improve IPTC’s technical quality standards, all submitted conference papers will be checked for plagiarism.

We expect all authors to credit all sources used in their writings and not to represent work of others as their own. Authors found to have plagiarised the work of another are subject to having their paper removed from the conference programme and from OnePetro. Future submissions from authors found to have plagiarised will be scrutinised carefully. In the case of students found to be plagiarising the work of others, IPTC may inform the student’s university.

Commercialism Policy

In order to maintain the integrity, high quality, and unbiased information in all forms of written and oral presentations at the IPTC Conferences, overt commercialism is prohibited outside of the commercial exhibit areas.

Items deemed to be commercial in nature will not be allowed or disseminated. This includes, but is not limited to, Conference Proceedings, presentations, OnePetro, and promotional material.

Use of the following will be carefully scrutinised during evaluation and presentation, and could result in withdrawal from the programme:

  • Generic descriptions should replace commercial trade names or trademarked materials
  • Company logos allowed on title and closing slide only
  • Text which is overtly commercial in tone or intent within paper titles, presentation slides, text, tables, figures, animation, audio, and video is prohibited

Repeated violations of this policy may result in the speaker and/or moderator being barred from participating in future IPTC Conferences.
