Plagiarism Issue



Nation State: Journal of International Studies (NSJIS) committed to maintaining publication quality and academic integrity by preventing plagiarism and ethical misconduct in scholarly publications. We highly expect the authors to read and understand publication ethics carefully before submitting the manuscript. The author(s) should attach a signed document of the originality statement with the article's submission. We, therefore, establish specific actions when plagiarism is identified.

Plagiarism Definition: When somebody presents the work of others (data, words or theories) as if they were his/her own and without proper acknowledgment.

Policy: Papers must be original, unpublished, not translation and not under being consideration by any publisher media elsewhere.

Any sentences over fair use standards (here defined as more than three sentences or their equivalent without proper citation) or any graphic material reproduced from other sources without the permission of the copyright holder and, where applicable, the original author) can be classified as a plagiarism act.

We use Turnitin to evaluate each manuscript submission. The Editorial team will not tolerate plagiarism and ethical misconduct in scholarly work from the submitted manuscripts based on the following provision:

  1. Similarity more than 40% : Declined Submission and NO RESUBMISSION accepted.
  2. Similarity between 20-40% : The editorial inform to the author for major improvement or if the similarity tend to be high and containt plagiarism, the manuscript potentially rejected.
  3. Similarity less than 20% : Accepted submission but may be required minor improvement.

In cases 2 and 3: The authors should revise the article carefully by improving citations and paraphrasing of the referenced source. Then the author(s) are welcome to resubmit the article with a report showing NO PLAGIARISM and similarity less than 20%.
