Policy of Screening for Plagiarism
Jurnal Ilmiah Peuradeun (JIP), the Indonesian Journal of the Social Sciences, as a respected international journal, wants to ensure that all authors are careful and comply with international standards for academic integrity, particularly on the issue of plagiarism. JIP strongly condemns and discourages the practice of plagiarism.
All of the articles submitted to JIP will be screened for plagiarism using plagiarism detection tools (Turnitin) and Crossref Similarity Check (iThenticate). Both applications are used to detect submissions that overlap with published and submitted manuscripts. The JIP will immediately reject papers containing plagiarism or self-plagiarism.
Before submitting articles to reviewers, all submissions are first checked for similarity or plagiarism by a member of the editorial team. The similarity level tolerated for papers submitted to JIP must have a similarity level of less than 20%. Authors can see our Similarity Check page for more information on how to interpret these reports.
Plagiarism is the exposure of another person’s thoughts or words as though they were your own, without permission, credit, or acknowledgment, or because of failing to cite the sources properly. Plagiarism can take diverse forms, from literal copying to paraphrasing the work of another. We consider 'Plagiarism is a crime. Even when it occurs unintentionally, plagiarism is still a serious academic violation and is unacceptable in international academic publications. When the author learns specific information (a name, date, place, statistical number, or other detailed information) from a specific source, a citation is required (this is only forgiven in cases of general knowledge, where the data is readily available in more than five sources or is common knowledge). So that you can tell if an author has plagiarized, we want to point out the following possible situations:
- An author can literally copy another author’s work- by copying word by word, in whole or in part, without permission, acknowledging or citing the original source. This practice can be identified by comparing the original source and the manuscript/work that is suspected of plagiarism.
- Substantial copying implies an author reproducing a substantial part of another author, without permission, acknowledgment, or citation. The substantial term can be understood both in terms of quality and quantity and is often used in the context of Intellectual property. Quality refers to the relative value of the copied text in proportion to the work as a whole.
- Paraphrasing involves taking ideas, words, or phrases from a source and crafting them into new sentences within the writing. This practice becomes unethical when the author does not properly cite or does not acknowledge the original work/author. This form of plagiarism is the more difficult form to be identified.
The JIP takes academic integrity very seriously, and the editors reserve the right to withdraw acceptance from a paper found to violate any of the standards set out above. As part of its general right to remove the article, JIP reserves the right to delete or make inaccessible files that contain or may contain content that breaks the law, applicable JIP policy, or the rights of third parties.
