Plagiarism Policy

Types of Plagiarism

The following types of plagiarism are considered by Jurnal Biota:

  1. Full Plagiarism: Previously published content without any changes to the text, idea and grammar is considered as full plagiarism. It involves presenting exact text from a source as one’s own.
  2. Partial Plagiarism: If 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.

Plagiarism Checker Process

We will actively carry out a similarity check of all incoming manuscripts using the Turnitin software to avoid plagiarism. We highly appreciate the authors' original manuscripts. So, we will carry out at least 2 times the similarity check of the manuscript. We will provide a maximum tolerance of 30% for all manuscripts. The results of the similarity check cannot be completely refuted by the authors. We are continuously tightening this stage in order to produce a quality scientific research.
