Plagiarism Screening

Plagiarism Screening

Plagiarism is when one author uses another work/author (copying someone’s initial ideas, processes, results or words) without permission, credit, or acknowledgment. Jurnal Hubungan Internasional is strictly against any unethical act of copying or plagiarism. Authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works. Jurnal Hubungan Internasional considers plagiarism a serious offense and will blacklist authors who knowingly cite or use material from other published works without proper acknowledgment. Authors are recommended to use a plagiarism-checking program to check the similarity from prior publications before undergoing the review processes or before publishing. Every manuscript submitted to this journal will be screened for plagiarism using Turnitin Program before submission or publication by Jurnal Hubungan Internasional (JHI).

The following types of plagiarism are considered by Jurnal Hubungan Internasional (JHI):

  1. Full Plagiarism: Previously published content without any changes to the text, idea and grammar is considered full plagiarism. It involves presenting exact text from a source as one’s own.
  2. Partial Plagiarism: If the content is a mixture of multiple different sources, where the author has extensively rephrased text, then it is known as partial plagiarism.
  3. Self-Plagiarism: When an author reuses or portions of their pre-published research, it is known as self-plagiarism. Complete self-plagiarism is when an author republishes their own previously published work in a new journal.

If plagiarism is detected by the editorial board member, reviewer, editor etc., in any stage of the article process- before or after acceptance, during editing or at a page proof stage. We will alert the same to the author(s) and will ask them to rewrite the content or cite the references from where the content has been taken. If more than 30% of the paper is plagiarized- the article may be rejected, and the same is notified to the author.

If plagiarism is detected after publication, the Journals will conduct an investigation. If plagiarism is found, the competent authority of Jurnal Hubungan Internasional will contact the author's institute and funding agencies. The paper containing the plagiarism will be marked on each PDF page. Depending on the extent of the plagiarism, the paper may also be formally retracted.
