The Gema Wiralodra Editorial Team acknowledges that plagiarism is unacceptable and therefore establishes the following policy which states special action (penalties) if plagiarism is found in articles submitted for publication on Gema Wiralodra.
Plagiarism is an act intentionally or unintentionally to obtain or try to obtain praise or value for a scientific work, by quoting part or all of another party's scientific work and/or work that is recognized as scientific work, without mentioning the source accurately and adequately.
For that, then:
Articles must be original, have never been published before, and are not in the process of waiting for publication elsewhere. Material taken orally 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 action according to the level of plagiarism detected, with the following guidelines:
1. Plagiarized a few short sentences from another article without citing the source. Action: The author is given a warning and a request to change the text and citations properly.
2. Plagiarized most of the other articles without proper citation and did not mention the source. Action: Articles submitted are rejected for publication on Gema Wiralodra and the author may be subject to sanctions not being allowed to be published on Gema Wiralodra.
All authors of articles are responsible for the content of the articles they submit because they all sign the Gema Wiralodra Letter of Authenticity If the article is classified as plagiarism, then all authors will be subject to the same action. If the author is proven to have sent the manuscript to Gema Wiralodra while simultaneously sending it to another journal, and this overlap is found during the reviewer process or after publication, then action will be taken according to point 2 above. If plagiarism is found outside the rules above, the Gema Wiralodra editor has the right to impose sanctions according to the editorial team's policy.
