Screening for Plagiarism

Our journal prohibits plagiarism and self-plagiarism. Each author has the responsibility to ensure that the manuscript submitted to the Journal of Agromedicine and Medical Sciences is 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 using Turnitin. The manuscript is passed if the similarity is less than 25%. The editor provides this facility. The screening results will be delivered to the author at the same time as a pre-review discussion on the manuscript process.

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's 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.
