Screening Plagiarism

Plagiarism screening will be conducted by Gorontalo Development Review (Golder) Editorial Board using Plagiarism Checker X 




and Ithenticate 

Before the paper will be review by reviewer, the editorial will be check the level of percentage of plagiarism, if the plagiarism checker detect the similarity more than 20% (for Plagiarism Checker X version 6.0.11) and 30% (for Ithenticate), than the author must be revised the article. And also, after the paper was final checked by reviewer, then the final process is checking the similarity content of the papers before published the papers.

To correctly judge whether an author has plagiarized, we emphasize the following possible situations:

  1. An author can copy another author’s work- by copying word by word, in whole or in part, without permission, acknowledge or citing the source. This practice can be identified by comparing the source and the manuscript/work that is suspected of plagiarism.
  2. Substantial copying implies an author reproduces a significant part of another author, without permission, acknowledgment, or citation. The substantial term can be understood both in terms of quality as quantity, is often used in the context of Intellectual property. Condition refers to the relative value of the copied text in proportion to the work as a whole.
  3. Paraphrasing involves taking ideas, words, or phrases from a source and crafting them into new sentences within the writing. This practice becomes unethical when the author does not properly cite or does not acknowledge the original work/author. This form of plagiarism is the more difficult form to be identified.
