Plagiarism Prevention

Similarity Check is a multi-publisher initiative to screen published and submitted content for originality.  Malaysian Journal of Social Sciences and Humanities (MJSSH) uses the iThenticate software to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts.  It generates a similarity report, highlighting the percentage of overlap between the uploaded article and the published material. Any instance of content overlap is further scrutinized for suspected plagiarism according to the publisher’s Editorial Policies. If the similarity seems legitimate, the article will be proceeded for further review process; however, in cases of superfluous plagiarism, the authors have to revise the text as per editorial instructions.
