Plagiarism Policy

Prevention of plagiarism is essential as it provides scientific and academic integrity. Hence, al-Afkar, Journal for Islamic Studies uses the iThenticate Plagiarism Detection Software for controlling plagiarism concerns. Also al-Afkar 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 10% 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 al-Afkar Journal editors and, secondly, against as much as possible online databases.
