Plagiarism Checking

The editorial board of the Sasak journal recognizes that plagiarism is unacceptable and therefore establishes the following policy which states certain actions (sanctions) for identification of plagiarism / similarity in articles submitted for publication in the Sasak journal. We will use originality checking software CrossCheck software as a tool to detect text similarities in article manuscripts and final versions of articles ready for publication. If the article exceeds the maximum limit of 25%, the article will be returned to the author for correction and resubmission.




Plagiarism is the "theft and publication" of language, thoughts, ideas, and expressions of other authors who claim to be someone's original work.


Plagiarism check


The Sasak Journal ensures that the journal articles are not plagiarized before they are published by checking them using the CrossCheck (powered by Ithenticate) checking software. CrossCheck is used to detect examples of overlap and article similarity. The maximum plagiarism limit applied in Sasak is 25% and if the submitted manuscript exceeds 25% of plagiarism, the manuscript will be rejected without being reviewed. Authors are advised to revise it and resubmit the article.




Authors must confirm that the article has not been submitted to peer review, nor is it currently in the process of peer review, nor has it been accepted for publication in another journal. Authors must also ensure that their research work is original, and that all data provided in the article is real and authentic. If necessary, articles may be withdrawn, and errors corrected.
