Plagiarism Policy

International Journal of Nurisng and Health Services (IJNHS) adheres to international practices of preventing plagiarism. "Plagiarism is the use of others' published and unpublished ideas or words (or other intellectual property) without attribution or permission, and presenting them as new and original rather than derived from an existing source. The intent and effect of plagiarism is to mislead the reader as to the contributions of the plagiarizer. This applies whether the ideas or words are taken from abstracts, research grant applications, Institutional Review Board applications, or unpublished or published manuscripts in any publication format. Plagiarism is scientific misconduct and should be addressed as such.

All articles submitted will be screened for plagiarism using CrossCheck / iThenticate plagiarism detection tools. Article has more than 20% of similarity based on screening for plagiarism using CrossCheck / iThenticate plagiarism detection tools would be rejected by editor. The indicators of plagiarism from articles submitted: 

Firstly, the most easily identifiable plagiarism through plagiarism checker software when authors copies another author's work by reciting words, sentences, or paragraphs without citing original sources. This plagiarism model can be easily identified by our plagiarism checker software.

Secondly, the manuscript plagiarism occurs when authors take the substantial part of another authors' work, without citation. The meaning of "substantial taking" here can be understood as copying anothers' ideas, both in terms of quantity and quality, which potentially eliminates the original author's rights, in the context of intellectual property.

Thirdly, the plagiarism when an author takes ideas, words, or phrases in paraphrased sentences or paragraphs, without citing the original source. This type of plagiarism often cannot be checked through plagiarism software, as it is idea-based.
