Policy of Screening for Plagiarism

Papers submitted to the Jurnal Komunikasi Pendidikan will be screened for plagiarism using CrossCheck/iThenticate plagiarism detection tools. Jurnal Komunikasi Pendidikan will immediately reject papers leading to plagiarism or self-plagiarism.

Before submitting articles to reviewers, those are first checked for similarity/plagiarism tool by a member of the editorial team. The papers submitted to the Jurnal Komunikasi Pendidikan must have a similarity level of less than 20%.

Plagiarism is the exposing 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. In order to properly judge whether an author has plagiarized, we emphasize 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, acknowledge 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 for an author to reproduce a substantial part of another author without permission, acknowledgment, or citation. The substantial term can be understood both in terms of quality as quantity, being 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.

 

Withdrawal of Manuscripts

Withdrawing submitted or published manuscripts is not recommended. If the writer intends to retract the manuscript, the following rules must be followed:

  1. Manuscripts may only be withdrawn for acceptable reasons. Must not withdraw the manuscript because it has been published in another journal.

  2. The author must make a letter requesting withdrawal of the manuscript to the chief editor, along with the reasons for withdrawal. Requests for withdrawal of the manuscript must know all the authors, evidenced by the signature.
