Plagiarism Policy

Please note that English Learning Innovation (englie) published by Universitas Muhammadiyah Malang to screen papers for unoriginal material. By submitting an article for publication to englie, authors are agreeing to originality checks using Turnitin software. English Learning Innovation (englie) has a policy of screening for plagiarism with a maximum similarity score of 15%.

Plagiarism constitutes a serious form of scientific misconduct and is unacceptable. Plagiarism policy is clearly defined as follows:

  • Plagiarism and self-plagiarism are not allowed.
  • The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.
  • An author should not, in general, publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.
  • Proper acknowledgement of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

The managing editor will decide whether to immediately reject the manuscripts, contact authors for further clarification or proceed to the blind peer-review process, depending on the level of originality and similarities with other documents. However, when serious plagiarized work is identified by the Plagiarism Checker (using Turnitin software), the manuscript is automatically rejected and the authors are forbidden to submit further articles to the journal.
