Plagiarism screening will be conducted by the editors of JAKP (Jurnal Administrasi dan Kebijakan Publik) twice. First before the review and secondly after the review prior to publication using TURNITIN Similarity Check. Article manuscripts must obtain a similarity index of less than 20%. We will return the manuscripts to authors should the similarity index is more than 20%. Authors may rewrite the manuscripts to meet our requirement in this regard and resubmit the rewritten manuscripts. The resubmitted manuscripts will go into the new screening process, and if for any reasons the similarity index is still above 20%, the editors will reject the manuscripts.
