Screening for Plagiarism Policy

Journal of Contemporary Sociological Issues (CSI) adheres to international practices preventing plagiarism. CSI uses a cross-check system for plagiarism; platforms include Turnitin. Thus, all authors submitting their manuscripts to the CSI must check that their academic work respects the copyrights of other scholars and avoids plagiarism. Once the manuscript is submitted to CSI, our editorial team will assign a group of anti-plagiarism members to check the manuscript through various tools. The result of manuscript screening by Turnitin Tool should be a maximum of 20% similarity, evaluating and interpreting whether the manuscript has passed the plagiarism indicators.

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

The first type of plagiarism is repeated content is the most easily identifiable plagiarism when an author copies another author's work by reciting words, sentences, or paragraphs without citing original sources. Our plagiarism checker software can quickly identify this plagiarism model.

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 quantity and quality, potentially eliminating the original author's rights in intellectual property.

The third type of plagiarism is 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.
