Plagiarism Policy

Prevention of plagiarism is essential as it provides scientific and academic integrity. Hence, JKM : Jurnal Kesehatan Mahardika uses the iThenticate Plagiarism Detection Software for controlling plagiarism concerns. Also JKM Journal editors will run plagiarism check using Grammarly for the submitted manuscripts before sending to reviewers. We do not process any plagiarised contents. If a manuscript has over 25% of plagiarism based on the result of Grammarly check, we will send back the manuscript to the author to be revised for the plagiarised contents

It is basically author’s duty to only submit a article that is free from plagiarism and academically malpractices. The editor, however, double checks each article before its publication. The first step is to check plagiarism against offline database developed by LPPM STIKes Mahardika Cirebon Indonesia and, secondly, against as much as possible online databases.
