Originality and Plagiarism

The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works for Journal of Socioeconomics And Development (JSeD), and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted. Plagiarism takes many forms, from 'passing off' another's paper as the author's own paper, to copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another's paper (without attribution), to claiming results from research conducted by others. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.

The JSeD Editor applies the plagiarism provisions carefully. Every sentence and word in the manuscript is examined in close detail, by excluding references or methods (parts that are often very similar to what have been published in other papers) about 15 percent is acceptable. Some sentences that are definitions (for example the definition of innate immunity) are of course used repeatedly, and plagiarism in those sentences is difficult to avoid but is generally accepted.  Plagiarism screening will be conducted by JSeD's editor using Turnitin.


The detail steps of plagiarism checks of JSeD:

  1. The articles sent by the author must be an original script and is not being considered for publication and not being published by other journal or publishers. This is done through a waiver of rights of copyright to the publisher and a statement about plagiarism filled by the author.
  2. Articles reviewed by peer review team who are competent in their field as a way to control plagiarism. The review team is also expected to be able to identify the novelty of the research written in the script
  3. Submitted articles have been checked for plagiarism by using software checker.  In this work, the checks can also include grammar checks using software applications.  The work of the software applications becomes part of the results of the review to be notified to the author
