Plagiarism Policy

 The JTEKSIS Journal Editorial Team recognizes that plagiarism is unacceptable and therefore sets out the following policy stating specific actions (penalties) when plagiarism is identified in an article submitted for publication in the JTEKSIS Journal. A maximum of 20 % of similarities is allowed for the submitted papers. Should we find more than 20 % of the similarity index, the article will be returned to the author for correction and re-submission.

 Plagiarism is the intentional or unintentional act of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit or value for a scientific work, by citing some or all of the work and/or scientific work of another party recognized as its scientific work, without stating the source appropriately and adequately.

 For that, then:

Articles must be original, have never been published, and not in the process of waiting for publication elsewhere. Material taken verbally from other sources needs to be clearly identified so that it differs from the original text.

If plagiarism is identified, the Editor-in-Chief is responsible for the review of the article and will approve the action in accordance with the detected level of plagiarism, with the following guidelines:

 Plagiarism Level
1. Plagiarized some short sentences from other articles without mentioning the source. Action: Authors are given warnings and requests to change the text and quote correctly.
2. Plagiarized most other articles without proper citations and did not mention the source. Action: Submitted articles are rejected for publication in JTEKSIS Journal and authors may be sanctioned for not being allowed publication in JTEKSIS Journals.

All article writers are responsible for the content of the articles they submit because they all sign the JTEKSIS Journal Publication Ethics Statement Form. If the article is plagiarism, then all authors will be subject to the same action.

If the Author is proven to submit a manuscript to JTEKSIS Journal by simultaneously submitting also to other Journals, and this overlap is found during the reviewer process or after publication, it is given action according to point 2 above.

If plagiarism is found outside the rules above, the editor of JTEKSIS Journal has the right to give sanctions action in accordance with the policy of the editor's team.
