Screening for Plagiarism

In publishing an article, JELT (Jambi-English Language Teaching) strongly against any case of plagiarism on its own merits. JELT (Jambi-English Language Teaching) commits to deterring plagiarism, including self-plagiarism.

Authors are expected to cite others' work and ideas explicitly, even if the work or ideas are not quoted verbatim or paraphrased. This standard applies whether the previous work is published, unpublished, or electronically available. Failure to properly cite the work of others may constitute plagiarism. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. JELT (Jambi-English Language Teaching) applies a minimum standard of similarity score of the manuscript under 20%. The article should be revised or rejected if the manuscript performs above 20%.
