Screening for Plagiarism

Plagiarism is the unethical practice of using someone else's concepts, methods, outputs, or words without giving proper recognition to the original author and source. When an author uses a significant proportion of previously published work without providing the necessary citations, that is considered plagiarism. This can involve updating a previously published work with fresh information or publishing the same manuscript in other journals.

GEMA: Journal of Gentiaras Management and Accounting firmly denounces any kind of unethical copying or plagiarism. When a sizable chunk of the manuscript is directly lifted from a previously published source, it is considered to be plagiarized. Authors affirm that their work is original, has never been published, and is not currently being considered elsewhere when they submit a paper to a journal.


GEMA: Journal of Gentiaras Management and Accounting does not tolerate any form of plagiarism, including the duplication of an author's own work (self-plagiarism), in full or in part, without the necessary reference. GEMA: Journal of Gentiaras Management and Accounting uses the anti-plagiarism programs "Turnitin" to check each paper for plagiarism. Before submitting a manuscript for publication in the Physics Learning Journal, authors can cross-check the paper for plagiarism using tools as "Turnitin." When submitting the article, the software's results should be attached or mentioned in the supplemental file.

The percentage of plagiarism will determine how a manuscript is treated when it is found to be plagiarized.

  • 5- 20% In the event of plagiarism, the manuscript will not be given an ID and will instead be returned to the author for revision.
  • >20% The manuscript will be rejected without review if it contains plagiarism.
