Plagiarism Screening

Sintesa will not tolerate any plagiarism. Therefore, the Author(s) should check their manuscript through a plagiarism checker application before submitting it.

Manuscripts submitted to Jurnal Sintesa will be screened for plagiarism using the Turnitin plagiarism detection tool. Sintesa will immediately reject papers leading to plagiarism or self-plagiarism and be returned them to the authors for correction.

Sintesa wants to ensure that all authors are careful and comply with international standards for academic integrity, particularly on the issue of plagiarism.

Plagiarism occurs when an author takes ideas, information, or words from another source without proper credit to the source. Even when it occurs unintentionally, plagiarism is still a serious academic violation and unacceptable in international academic publications.

A citation is required when the author learns specific information from a specific source (name, date, place, statistical number, or other detailed information).

When the author takes an idea from another author, a citation is required even if the author then develops the idea further. This might be an idea about how to interpret the data, either what methodology to use or what conclusion to draw. It might be an idea about broad developments in a field or general information. Regardless of the idea, authors should cite their sources. In cases where the author develops the idea further, it is still necessary to cite the original source of the idea, and then in a subsequent sentence, the author can explain her or his more developed idea.

When the author takes words from another author, a citation and quotation marks are required. Whenever four or more consecutive words are identical to a source the author has read, the author must use quotation marks to denote the use of another author's original words; just a citation is no longer enough.

Sintesa takes academic integrity very seriously, and the editors reserve the right to withdraw acceptance from a paper that violates any of the standards above. For further information, potential authors can contact the editorial office at:
