Plagiarism is the act of when one author uses another work/author (copying someone’s prior ideas, processes, results, or words) without permission, credit, or acknowledgment. The Indonesian Archives of Biomedical Research (InABR)is strictly against any unethical act of copying or plagiarism in any form. Authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works. InABR considers plagiarism as a serious offense and will blacklist authors who knowingly cite or use material from other published works without proper acknowledgment. Authors are recommended to use a plagiarism checking program to check the similarity from prior publication before undergoing the review processes or before published. Every manuscript that is also submitted to this journal will be screened for plagiarism using Turnitin Program before submission or published by InABR Editor.
The following types of plagiarism are considered by InABR:
1. Full Plagiarism: Previously published content without any changes to the text, idea, and grammar is considered full plagiarism. It involves presenting exact text from a source as one’s own.
2. Partial Plagiarism: If the content is a mixture from multiple different sources, where the author has extensively rephrased text, then it is known as partial plagiarism.
3. Self-Plagiarism: When an author reuses complete or portions of their pre-published research, then it is known as self-plagiarism. Complete self-plagiarism is a case when an author republishes their own previously published work in a new journal.
If plagiarism is detected by the editorial board member, reviewer, editor, etc., in any stage of the article process- before or after acceptance, during editing, or at a page proof stage. We will alert the same to the author(s) and will ask them to rewrite the content or to cite the references from where the content has been taken. If more than 20% of the paper is plagiarized- the article will be returned to the author for correction. Manuscripts that have been corrected will be re-examined until the results of plagiarism are less than 20%.
If plagiarism is detected after publication, the Journals will conduct an investigation. If plagiarism is found, the competent authority of the InABR will contact the author's institute and funding agencies. The paper containing the plagiarism will be marked on each page of the PDF. Depending on the extent of the plagiarism, the paper may also be formally retracted.
Screening for plagiarism will be conducted by InABR Editorial Team using Grammarly®, Plagiarism Checker and Crossref Similarity Check plagiarism screening service developed by iThenticate.
