Plagiarism Issue



The Nation State: Journal of International Studies (NSJIS) is dedicated to upholding academic integrity and preventing plagiarism and ethical misconduct in scholarly publications. We place a strong emphasis on authors familiarizing themselves with publication ethics and adhering to them before submitting their manuscripts. As part of this commitment, we require authors to include a signed originality statement when submitting their articles. In cases where plagiarism is identified, we have established specific measures and actions to address the issue.

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

Sentences that surpass the fair use standards (as defined here, referring to more than three sentences or their equivalent without proper citation) or any graphical content reproduced from external sources without obtaining permission from the copyright holder and, if applicable, the original author, may be considered instances of plagiarism.

The article submitted to Nation State: Journal of International Studies must be original, unpublished, not translation and not under consideration by any publisher media elsewhere.

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 provisions:

  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%.
