Screening for Plagiarism Policies

JKSI is a member of CrossCheck’s plagiarism detection initiative and takes seriously all cases of publication misconduct. Any suspected cases of covert duplicate manuscript submission will be handled as outlined in the COPE guidelines and the Editor may contact the authors’ institution (see Misconduct policy for more information). JKSI endorses the policies of the ICMJE in relation to overlapping publications.

JKSI screens each article using iThenticate two times: during submission and after revision. The percentage of similarity index is seen per article because 10% can also be considered plagiarism.

Plagiarism could be detected using Google search engine or one of two programs; iThenticate or Turnitin.
