Our Policy to Prevention of Plagiarism

Journal Plagiarism Policy


Plagiarism is the use of others' published and unpublished ideas or words (or other intellectual property rights) without reference or permission, and presented as new and original rather than stating that they are derived from an existing source. Self-overcrowding means that an author uses some parts of his previous articles on the same topic elsewhere in his publications, especially without citing.

Journal of Health Sciences of Adıyaman University obliges the studies to be checked for plagiarism by the “iThenticate” plagiarism program during the article upload process. In this context, each study should be checked for plagiarism by the author and sent to the journal with its report. The similarity rate of this report is reviewed and approved by the Editor / Assistant Editor. The submission is rejected if the similarity rate is high or if quotation is not made in accordance with academic rules. Even if the similarity rate is very low, it is the authors' responsibility to ensure that the content complies with academic ethical rules.
