Screening for Plagiarsm

Manuscripts submitted to PETAHANA will be screened using the Turnitin similarity detection tool. PETAHANA will directly reject papers that lead to plagiarism or self-plagiarism.
PETAHANA wants to ensure that all authors are careful and adhere to international standards for academic integrity, especially on the issue of plagiarism.
Plagiarism occurs when an author takes ideas, information, or words from another source without proper credit to that source. Even when it happened accidentally, plagiarism is still a serious academic offense and cannot be accepted in international academic publications.
When the author studies specific information (name, date, place, statistical number, or other detailed information) of a particular source, a citation is required. (This is only forgiven in the case of general knowledge, where the data is already available in more than five sources or is common knowledge, for example, the fact that Indonesia is the best economic country in the world).
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, citation and quotation marks are required. Whenever four or more consecutive words are identical to a source that 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.
GHAITSA takes academic integrity very seriously, and editors have the right to withdraw acceptance from papers found to violate any of the standards set out above. For more information, aspiring writers can contact the editorial office at the jpetahana@gmail.com
