bookmark_border Screening for Plagiarism Policy

The Malahayati Midwifery Journal has a screening policy for plagiarism.
 We use Crossref Similarity Check Powered By Ithenticate 
to check article authenticity and track duplicate content.
The Malahayati Midwifery Journal will immediately reject papers
 that lead to plagiarism or self-plagiarism.Before submitting articles to reviewers,
 they are first checked for similarity/plagiarism tools,
 by members of the editorial team.
Papers submitted to the Malahayatai Midwifery Journal 
must have a similarity rate of less than 20%.
Plagiarism is exposing another person's thoughts
 or words as if they were your own, without permission, 
credit or acknowledgment,
or for failing to properly cite sources.
 Plagiarism can take a variety of forms,
 from literal copying to paraphrasing someone else's work.
In order to properly assess whether an author has plagiarized, 
we emphasize the following possible situations:
An author may actually copy another author's work- by copying verbatim, 
in whole or in part,without permission, acknowledging or citing the original source. 
This practice can be identified through comparing the original source 
and manuscripts/works that are suspected of plagiarism. 
Substantial copying implies for an author to reproduce
 a large part of another author, without permission, acknowledgment or citation. 
The term substantial can be understood both in terms of quality as well as quantity, 
which is often used in the context of Intellectual Property.
 Quality refers to the relative value of the copied text in proportion to the work as a whole. 
Paraphrasing includes taking ideas, words or phrases from sources
 and arranging them into new sentences in writing. 
This practice becomes unethical when the author
 does not properly mention or does not acknowledge the original work/author. 
This form of plagiarism is a more difficult form to identify.
