Screening Plagiarism

Every manuscript submitted to Invention: Journal Research and Education Studies will undergo plagiarism screening using the Turnitin detection tools. The Editor will immediately reject papers that indicate plagiarism or self-plagiarism.

Invention: Journal Research and Education Studies aims to ensure that all authors exercise caution and adhere to international standards for academic integrity, particularly concerning plagiarism.

Plagiarism occurs when an author takes ideas, information, or words from another source without giving proper credit to the original source. Although it may happen unintentionally, plagiarism remains a serious academic offense and is unacceptable in academic publications.

When authors borrow specific information (names, dates, places, statistics, or other detailed information) from a specific source, it requires citation. (This is only excused in cases of common knowledge where the data is available from more than five sources or is common knowledge, for example, the fact that Indonesia is the largest Muslim country in the world.)

When authors borrow ideas from other writers, citations are still necessary, even if the authors later develop the ideas further. These ideas may be about how to interpret data, what methodology to use, or what conclusions to draw. They may be broader developments in a field or general information. Regardless of the idea, authors must cite their sources. In cases where authors develop the ideas further, they still need to cite the original source of the idea, and then in the following sentence, they can explain their developed idea.

If authors borrow words from other writers, citations and quotation marks are required. Whenever four or more consecutive words are identical to a source the author has read, they must use quotation marks to indicate the use of the original words of another writer; citation alone is no longer sufficient.
