Screening for Plagiarism
To ensure originality and avoid plagiarism, authors are required to use the Turnitin application and Plagiarism Checker application for screening. The article should have less than 20% similarity with other sources.
Plagiarism can take various forms:
1. Word-for-word plagiarism occurs when the author uses the exact words of other authors without proper citation.
2. Source plagiarism: This happens when the author uses someone else's ideas without giving proper credit or citation.
3. Authorship plagiarism occurs when someone claims authorship of work created by others.
4. Self-plagiarism involves authors submitting the same article to multiple publications or reusing their work without substantial changes. It's important to note that when reusing their work, authors should make significant revisions to ensure that the new work includes substantial new content, with the old work forming only a minor part of the new publication. This way, readers will receive fresh and meaningful contributions from the author while maintaining the integrity of the original work.
