Screening Plagiarism

All work in the manuscript should be free of any plagiarism, falsification, fabrications, or omission of significant material. Authors are expected to explicitly cite others' work and ideas, even if the work or ideas are not quoted verbatim or paraphrased. This standard applies whether the previous work is published, unpublished, or electronically available. Failure to properly cite the work of others may constitute plagiarism. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.

In order to ensure that submitted and published articles are free from plagiarism, editors will use Turnitin's web-based software to check the similarity index with a quality standard of 25%. This process is carried out when the author submits the article for the first time (submission) and the second or next time (revision/after being revised based on reviewer input). If the article meets the standards, the article can be processed to the next stage (review or publish). Otherwise, the author will be asked to correct it. Apart from using Turnitin, the editor will also check with Google Scholar and other means. This step is intended to ensure that articles are neither the result of plagiarism nor are already sent/published to other journals (double submission).

Process for issuing a retraction statement

A "retracted" watermark should also be added to the article; however the article as first published should be retained online in order to maintain the scientific record. Issuing a retraction statement will mean the following:

  1. The retraction will appear on a numbered page in a prominent section of the journal;
  2. The retraction will be listed in the contents page and the title of the original article will be included in its heading;
  3. The text of the retraction should explain why the article is being retracted; and
  4. The statement of retraction and the original article must be clearly linked in the electronic database so that the retraction will always be apparent to anyone who comes across the original article.

Circumstances under which an article may be deleted
It is Aplikasia: Jurnal Aplikasi Ilmu-Ilmu Agama's policy to strongly discourage withdrawal of the Version of Record in line with the International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers guidelines on retractions and preservation of the objective record of science. Therefore deletion of the Version of Record is rare and Wiley will only consider it in the following limited circumstances:

  • Where there has been a violation of the privacy of a research subject;
  • Where there are errors to which a member of the general public might be exposed and if followed or adopted, would pose a significant risk to health; or
  • Where a clearly defamatory comment has been made about others in the relevant field or about their work.
  • Where an Accepted Article (which represents an early version of an article) is to be retracted, because for example it contains errors, has been accidentally submitted twice or infringes a professional ethical code of some type, it may be deleted. This is because, whilst an Accepted Article will have been allocated a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), it does not constitute the Version of Record as it will not yet have been formally published and has been assigned any issue.

Even in the above circumstances, bibliographic information about the deleted article should be retained for the scientific record, and an explanation given, however brief, about the circumstances of its removal.
