Screening of Plagiarism
Insignia: Journal of International Relations put a great concern on plagiarism. The journal recognizes that plagiarism is not acceptable and therefore establishes the following policy. Following the guidance of plagiarism policy developed by the University of New South Wales, Australia 2016, below are some practices considered as plagiarism:
- Using the same or very similar words to the original text or idea without acknowledging the source or using quotation marks. This includes copying materials, ideas or concepts from a book, article, report or other written document, presentation, composition, artwork, design, drawing, circuitry, computer program or software, website, internet, other electronic resource, or another person's assignment, without appropriate acknowledgement.
- Inappropriate paraphrasing. This refers to changing a few words and phrases while mostly retaining the original structure and/or progression of ideas of the original, and information without acknowledgement.
- Inappropriate citation. Citing sources which have not been read, without acknowledging the 'secondary' source from which knowledge of them has been obtained.
- Self-plagiarism. Occurs where an author republishes their own previously written work and presents it as new findings without referencing the earlier work, either in its entirety or partially.
Papers submitted to Insignia: Journal of International Relations will be screened for plagiarism using turnitin (www.turnitin.com) since April 2019 and using grammarly (www.grammarly.com) detection tools since April 2022. Insignia: Journal of International Relations will immediately reject papers leading to plagiarism or self-plagiarism and the author will be suspended for a minimum of 1 year.
