Policy of Screening

The International Journal of Advances in Intelligent Informatics will use Turnitin plagiarism detection techniques to screen papers for plagiarism. Habitat will promptly reject submissions containing plagiarism or self-plagiarism.

Before submitting articles to reviewers, an editorial team member checks them for similarity/plagiarism tools. The papers submitted to the International Journal of Advances in Intelligent Informatics must have a similarity level of less than 10% (excluding bibliography), with a maximum similarity score to each source of 3%.

Plagiarism is the act of presenting another person's thoughts or words as if they were your own, without permission, credit, or acknowledgment, or by failing to properly reference the sources. Plagiarism can take several forms, ranging from obvious copying to paraphrasing the work of others. To accurately determine whether an author plagiarized, we highlight the following plausible circumstances:

  • Authors can copy another author's work word for word, full or in part, without permission, but must acknowledge or cite the source. This behaviour can be detected by comparing the source to the manuscript/work accused of plagiarism.
  • Substantial copying occurs when an author reproduces a significant portion of another author's work without permission, acknowledgment, or proper citation. The phrase "substantial" can be understood in terms of both quality and quantity, and is frequently used in the context of intellectual property. Quality refers to the copyrighted text's relative value in relation to the entire work.
  • Paraphrasing includes incorporating ideas, words, or phrases from a source into new sentences in writing. This approach becomes unethical when the author fails to properly cite or acknowledge the original work or author. This sort of plagiarism is the most difficult to identify.
