Plagiarism Check

The Editorial Board of Ekasakti Educational Journal (EEJ) acknowledges that plagiarism is unacceptable and therefore establishes the following policy stating specific actions (penalties) after identifying plagiarism/similarity in articles submitted for publication in the Ekasakti Educational Journal (EEJ).

Ekasakti Educational Journal (EEJ) journal will use originality checking software Plagiarism Checker X as a tool in detecting text similarities in article manuscripts and final versions of articles that are ready for publication. A maximum of 25% similarity is permitted for submitted papers. If we find more than 25% of the similarity index, the article will be returned to the author for correction and resubmission.


Plagiarism involves "the use or cover-up of imitations of the language and thoughts of other authors and their representation as one's original work."


Papers must be original, unpublished, and not awaiting publication elsewhere. Any material taken verbatim from other sources must be clearly identified as different from this original text by (1) indentation, (2) use of quotation marks, and (3) identification of the source.

Any text with an amount that exceeds fair use standards (here defined as more than two or three sentences or its equivalent) or graphic material reproduced from other sources requires permission from the copyright holder and, where applicable, the original author and also requires identification of the source ; e.g., previous publication.

When plagiarism is identified, the Editor-in-Chief is responsible for the review of this paper and will approve steps according to the level of plagiarism detected in the paper according to the following guidelines:

Plagiarism Rate

Minor: Short sections of other articles are plagiarized without significant data or ideas taken from other papers.

Action: A warning is given to the author and a request to amend the text and properly cite the original article is made.

Medium: Most of the paper is traced without citations that match the original paper.

Action: The submitted article is rejected and the author is prohibited from submitting further articles for one year.

Severe: Most plagiarized papers involve reproducing original results or ideas presented in other publications.

Action: This paper is rejected and the author is prohibited from submitting any further articles for five years.

It is understood that all authors are responsible for the contents of the papers they submit because they all read and understand the Ekasakti Educational Journal (EEJ) Copyright and Licensing Terms. If a penalty is imposed for plagiarism, all authors will be subject to the same penalty.

If a second case of plagiarism by the same author is identified, a decision on the action to be enforced will be made by the Editorial board (Lead Editor and Editorial members) with the Chief Editor. Authors are prohibited from submitting further articles forever. This policy also applies to material reproduced from other publications by the same author. If an author uses previously published text or graphics, the appropriate paragraph or figure should be identified and the previous publication referenced. It is understood that in the case of review papers or tutorial papers much of the material is previously published.

Authors must identify the source of previously published material and obtain permission from the original author and publisher.

If an author submits a manuscript to Ekasakti Educational Journal (EEJ) with significant overlap with a manuscript submitted to another journal concurrently, and this overlap is discovered during the review process or after the publication of both papers, the editor of the other journal is notified and the case is handled as a serious case of plagiarism. Significant overlap means the use of identical or nearly identical numbers and identical or slightly modified text on one half or more of the paper. For self-plagiarism of less than half a paper but more than a tenth of a paper, the case must be treated as intermediate plagiarism. If the plagiarism is limited to the method section, this case should be considered as minor plagiarism.

If an author uses some previously published material to clarify the presentation of new results, the previously published material should be identified and the differences to these publications should be noted. Permission to republish must be obtained from the copyright holder. in the case of a manuscript originally published in the conference process and then submitted for publication in the journal Ekasakti Educational Journal (EEJ) either in an identical or expanded form, the author must identify the name of the process
