Plagiarism Screening

The Plagiarism JURNAL ILMIAH GEMA PERENCANA declares that plagiarism is unacceptable for all authors and therefore establishes the following policy stating certain actions (penalties) when plagiarism is identified by JURNAL ILMIAH GEMA PERENCANA detected by anti-plagiarism software in articles submitted for publication. Articles must be under 25% of plagiarism.

“Plagiarism is copying someone else's text or ideas and passing on the copied material as your own. You must both describe (i.e., separate and identify) the copied text from yours and give credit to (i.e., cite the source) the source of the copied text to avoid accusations of plagiarism. Plagiarism is considered fraudulent and has potentially harsh consequences including job loss, loss of reputation, and reduced grades or failing a course."

This definition of plagiarism applies to copied text and ideas:

  1. Regardless of the source of the copied text or idea.
  2. Regardless of whether the author of the text or idea you copied the text or idea from another source.
  3. Regardless of whether the author of the text or idea you are copying is known or not
  4. Regardless of the nature of your text (journal papers/articles, web pages, book chapters, papers submitted for college courses, etc.)
  5. Regardless of whether or not the author of the source of the copied material permits for the material to be copied; and
  6. Regardless of whether or not you are the author of the source of the copied text or idea (self-plagiarism).
