PLAGIARISM SCREENING

Articles submitted to Al-Ahkam Jurnal Ilmu Syari'ah dan Hukum will be filtered using Turnitin software, with a maximum of 20% similarities permitted.

Plagiarism includes:

  1. Word-for-word plagiarism – borrowing another author’s language word-for-word but not putting it in quotation marks or citing it correctly.
  2. Source plagiarism – using the ideas of others without giving recognition or citing the source explicitly.
  3. Plagiarism of authorship – presenting another author's work as one’s own.
  4. Self-plagiarism - authors publishing an article in more than one journal by recycling papers. The important issue related to self-plagiarism is that when citing one's own work, significant changes must have been made to the new article. The previous article should only contain a small percentage of any new article produced. So readers will receive new information, which tmay inspired by but different from the previous articles.
