Screening for Plagiarism

Plagiarism and self-plagiarism are prohibited. Each author has the responsibility to ensure that the manuscript submitted to the Journal of Tourism and Creativity 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 by Turnitin Tool 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.
