Plagiarism Policy

The editorial team acknowledges that plagiarism is unacceptable and therefore establishes the following policy stating specific actions (penalties) when plagiarism is identified in an article submitted for publication. 


Plagiarism is the act of intentionally or unintentionally obtaining or trying to obtain credit or value for a scientific work, by quoting part or all of the other party's scientific work and/or work that is recognized as his scientific work, without stating the source accurately and adequately.  For that, then:

Articles must be original, have never been published, and are not in the process of waiting for 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, then, the Editor-in-Chief is responsible for the review of the article and will approve the action according to the level of plagiarism detected, with the following guidelines:

Plagiarism Rate

  1. Plagiarized some short sentences from other articles without mentioning the source. Action: The author is given a warning and a request to change the text and cite correctly.
  2. Plagiarize most other articles without proper citations and do not mention the source. Action: The submitted article is refused publication and the Author may be sanctioned for not being allowed publication in Jurnal Ilmiah Rekayasa Sipil.

All article authors are responsible for the content of the articles they submit because they all sign the Journal Publication Ethics Affidavit 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 a Jurnal Ilmiah Rekayasa Sipil by simultaneously submitting it also to another Journal, and this overlap is found during the reviewer process or after publication, then it is given action according to point 2 above. If plagiarism is found outside the above rules, the journal editor has the right to provide sanctions according to the policies of the editorial team.
