Ghaidan Jurnal Bimbingan Konseling Islam & Kemasyarakatan 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 crediting the original. Even when it occurs unintentionally, plagiarism is still a severe academic violation and unacceptable in international academic publications.
A citation is required when the author learns specific information (a name, date, place, statistical number, or other detailed information) from a particular source. (This is only forgiven in cases of general knowledge, where the data is readily available in more than five sources or is common knowledge, e.g., that Indonesia is the most populous Muslim country in the world.)
When the author takes an idea from another author, a citation is required even if the author 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 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 mention the original citation of the concept. 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 terms 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.
Ghaidan Jurnal Bimbingan Konseling Islam & Kemasyarakatan takes academic integrity very seriously. 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
