Peer Review Process

  1. The submitted manuscript is first reviewed by an editor for initial screening to the journal aims and scope and similarity level by using the Crosscheck/iThenticate Engine.  The similarity level must less than 20 % (Exclude Bibliography) and the similarity score to each other source is no more than 3%.
  2. These manuscripts will be sent to two reviewers anonymously (Single Blind Review).

Policy of Screening for Plagiarism

Papers submitted to the Jurnal Informatika will be screened for plagiarism using CrossCheck/iThenticate plagiarism detection tools. Jurnal Informatika will immediately reject papers leading to plagiarism or self-plagiarism.

Before submitting articles to reviewers, those are first checked for similarity/plagiarism tool, by a member of the editorial team. The papers submitted to the Jurnal Informatika must have a similarity level of less than 10% (Exclude Bibliography), and the similarity score to each source is no more than 3%.

Plagiarism is the exposure of another person’s thoughts or words as though they were your own, without permission, credit, or acknowledgment, or because of failing to cite the sources properly. Plagiarism can take diverse forms, from literal copying to paraphrasing the work of another. To accurately judge whether an author has plagiarized, we emphasize the following possible situations:

  • An author can literally copy another author’s work- by copying word by word, in whole or in part, without permission, acknowledge or citing the original source. This practice can be identified by comparing the original source and the manuscript/work who is suspected of plagiarism.
  • Substantial copying implies an author to reproduce a substantial part of another author, without permission, acknowledge, or citation. The substantial term can be understood both in terms of quality as quantity, being often used in the context of Intellectual property. Quality refers to the relative value of the copied text in proportion to the work as a whole.
  • Paraphrasing involves taking ideas, words, or phrases from a source and crafting them into new sentences within the writing. This practice becomes unethical when the author does not properly cite or does not acknowledge the original work/author. This form of plagiarism is the more difficult form to be identified.
