VEKTORA : Jurnal Vektor dan Reservoir Penyakit is very concerned about plagiarism. 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.
Plagiarism is when an author attempts to pass off someone else's work as his or her own. Duplicate publication, sometimes called self-plagiarism, occurs when an author reuses substantial parts of his or her own published work without providing the appropriate references. This can range from getting an identical paper published in multiple journals, to 'salami-slicing', where authors add small amounts of new data to a previous paper.
Plagiarism can be said to have clearly occurred when large chunks of text have been cut-and-pasted. Such manuscripts would not be considered for publication in VEKTORA. But minor plagiarism without dishonest intent is relatively frequent, for example, when an author reuses parts of an introduction from an earlier paper. The VEKTORA editors judge any case of which they become aware (either by their own knowledge of and reading about the literature or when alerted by referees) on its own merits.
Papers submitted to VEKTORA will be screened and checked for plagiarism by using plagiarism detection tools, but an author should be checked it to before submitted. The authors can be checked for plagiarism with many detection tools. The link below is one example of plagiarism detection tool.
