Screening for Plagiarism

Articles submitted to JPHE: Journal of Public Health Education will be filtered using Turnitin software and similarity Check by Crossref with a maximum of 20% similarities permitted.

Plagiarism includes (Soelistyo, 2011):

  1. Word-for-word plagiarism – borrowing another author’s language word-for-word but not putting it in quotation marks or citing it correctly.
  2. Source plagiarism – using the ideas of others without giving recognition or citing the source explicitly.
  3. Plagiarism of authorship – presenting another author's work as one’s own.
  4. Self-plagiarism - authors publishing an article in more than one journal by recycling papers. The important issue related to self-plagiarism is that when citing one's own work, significant changes must have been made to the new article. The previous article should only contain a small percentage of any new article produced. So readers will receive new information, which may be inspired by but different from the previous articles.
