Prevention of plagiarism is essential as it provides scientific and academic integrity. Hence, JIK UMC uses the Turnitin Software for controlling plagiarism concerns. Also JIK UMC editors will run plagiarism check using Turnitin for the submitted manuscripts before sending to reviewers. We do not process any plagiarised contents. If a manuscript has over 20% of plagiarism based on the result of Turnitin check, we will send back the manuscript to the author to be revised for the plagiarised contents
It is basically author’s duty to only submit a article that is free from plagiarism and academically malpractices. The editor, however, double checks each article before its publication. The first step is to check plagiarism against offline database developed by JIK UMC editors and, secondly, against as much as possible online databases.
