The PubBis Journal Editorial Team: Journal of Public Administration and Business Administration Thought and Research recognizes that plagiarism is unacceptable and has therefore established the following policy stating specific actions (penalties) when plagiarism is identified in an article submitted for publication in the PubBis Journal
Plagiarism is an act intentionally or unintentionally in obtaining or trying to obtain credit or value for a scientific work, by quoting part or all of the work and scientific work of another party which is recognized as a scientific work, without stating the source accurately and adequately.
For that, then:
Articles must be original, unpublished, and not pending publication elsewhere. Material taken verbally from other sources needs to be clearly identified so that it differs from the original text.
If plagiarism is identified, the Editor in Chief is responsible for reviewing the article and will approve actions according to the level of plagiarism detected, with the following guidelines:
1. Plagiarized some short sentences from other articles without citing the source. Action: The author is given a warning and a request to change the text and quote correctly.
2. Plagiarized most of the other articles without proper citation and not citing the source. Action: The submitted article is rejected for publication in the PubBis Journal and the author may be penalized for not being allowed to publish
All article authors are responsible for the content of the articles they submit as they all sign the PubBis Journal Letter and Statement Form. If the article is classified as plagiarism, then all authors will be subject to the same action.
If the author is proven to submit a manuscript to the PubBis Journal by simultaneously submitting it to other journals, and this overlap is found during the reviewer process or after publication, then the action is given according to point 2 above.
Each manuscript published first conducted plagiarism checking process with software Grammerly/Plagiarism Checker X Level 5. The script will be processed when the scan results indicate plagiarism is under 25%.
