Handling Plagiarism

Manuscripts with plagiarized content will not be considered by the journal. If plagiarism is identified, we will follow COPE guidelines.  Authors whose work has been flagged as containing possible plagiarised content by JPR editors or reviewers will have an opportunity to respond to the journal's concerns. If no response is received the journal reserves the right to reject the submission, issue a correction or retraction (if the manuscript has already been published) and contact authors' institutions, funders or regulatory bodies as necessary.

Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to: 

- copying, either verbatum or close, text from other sources without attribution/citation

- using illustrations (includes images, graphs or diagrams) from other sources without attribution

- significantly reusing your own text from previous publications without attribution or the agreement of the editor (read the COPE guidelines on text recycling)(note, there are exceptions relating to methods)

- using the original structure, argument or idea from another source as a major part of a new publication without attribution (where it is clear this has not been developed by the authors).

To uphold the academic honesty and integrity and as a way to inform readers that a certain part of our writing is free from acts of plagiarism, then in publishing articles through the examination of anti-plagiarism. Jurnal Plastik Rekonstruksi is using Turnitin to checks academic papers in real-time.

The Turnitin engine performs the real-time checks against real-time web index ensuring the editor(s), and/or reviewer(s) receive the most accurate similarity results. If it finds the existence of elements of plagiarism in the script, then the article will be rejected.
