My classmate (now a lecturer at Imo State University, Owerri, Nigeria) published my entire masters thesis’ work in an internal journal (IOSR Journal of Computer Engineering (IOSR-JCE)) without my knowledge and didn’t reference me in any way. How do I go about reporting this for the work to be retracted?
I handled three cases of Plagiarism so far. The fastest way is to write an email to editor-in-chief of the journal and provide some documents showing that this is your work. For example, you can sent your master thesis and specify the similar parts. For me, in all cases, the editor-in-chief quickly removed the paper because they are responsible for the reputation of the journal. In case this doesn't work, then you can ask your university to handle this, but the procedure would be much longer.
