Policy of Screening for Plagiarism

Policy of Screening for Plagiarism

The Interdisciplinary Journal of Feminism and Gender Studies (JFGS) adheres to practice of preventing plagiarism. Since its first edition, JFGS uses a cross-check system for plagiarism, platforms include Turnitin. Thus, all authors that submit their manuscripts to the JFGS must check that their academic work respects the copyrights of other scholars and avoids any and all plagiarism. Uploaded articles must have been processed in Turnitin with a maximum of 25% similarity. Once the manuscript is submitted to JFGS, our editorial team will assign a group of anti-plagiarism members to check the manuscript through various tools.

There are several indicators of plagiarism that all authors must be aware of:

The most easily identifiable plagiarism is that of repeated content when an author copies another author's work by reciting words, sentences, or paragraphs without citing original sources. This plagiarism model can be easily identified by our plagiarism checker software.

The second type of plagiarism occurs when an author reproduces a substantial part of another writer's work, without citing him/her. The term "reproducing substance" here can be understood as copying another's ideas, both in terms of quantity and quality, which potentially eliminates the original author's rights, in the context of intellectual property. 

The third type of plagiarism when an author takes ideas, words, or phrases in paraphrased sentences or paragraphs, without citing the original source. This type of plagiarism often cannot be checked through plagiarism software, as it is idea-based. Yet, this practice becomes unethical when the author does not cite, nor acknowledge the original source from the original writer.

Screening for Plagiarism

Plagiarism and self-plagiarism are prohibited. Each author has the responsibility to ensure that the manuscript submitted to the Indonesian Journal of Law and Society is original and plagiarism-free. Once the author has submitted the manuscript, the Editorial Board remains to apply the routine procedure to run all submissions to pass the maximum percentage of similarity and plagiarism evaluation through detection software. The result of manuscript screening should be a maximum of 25% similarity, with the evaluation and interpretation of whether the manuscript has passed the plagiarism indicators. Plagiarism includes:

(a) the word for word plagiarism (the author uses the words of other authors (exactly) without mentioning the source);
(b) plagiarism over the source
 (the author uses the idea of others without giving enough recognition (without mentioning the source expressly); and
(c) plagiarism of authorship
 (the author acknowledged as the author of the paperwork of others).

The Editorial Board has the right to decline the submission when it is found that the manuscript is detected with plagiarism.
