Plagiarism Policy

In publishing, PELITA PERKEBUNAN is strongly against any case of plagiarism on its own merits. PELITA PERKEBUNAN commits to deterring plagiarism, including self-plagiarism.

The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted. Papers found with such problems are automatically rejected and authors are so advised. Also, significant parts of the work have not been published. The author also respects the Author Guidelines of PELITA PERKEBUNAN regarding redundant, duplicate, or fraudulent publication entirely.

As part of our commitment to protecting the integrity of the scholarly record, works submitted for publication are automatically and systematically screened through a similarity detection platform, Crossref Similarity Check powered by iThenticate, to prevent misconduct by comparing manuscripts against a database of over 60 billion web pages and 155 million content items, including 49 million works from 800 scholarly publisher participants of Crossref Similarity Check. As part of the plagiarism detection process, the submitted work is copied for internal checking purposes and a copy may be retained by the publisher, although not further disseminated or integrated into the Similarity Check.

The similarity report includes a percentage score, called a "Similarity Index", which indicates how much of the document matches other sources. A high similarity score does not necessarily determine whether a manuscript contains plagiarism. Crossref Similarity Check identifies content in a submitted manuscript that has overlapped with one or more other sources which might be re-used text that has been legitimately cited.

Our partner as a Crossref publisher member, participates in the Similarity Check service and does comply to all obligations and requirements in order to actively engage in efforts to prevent scholarly and professional plagiarism.
