Policy in screening of plagiarism

Plagiarism is strictly prohibited in Jurnal Rekayasa. Plagiarism screening in this journal is completed through Turnitin and Google search. The Journal team will judge any case of plagiarism. If plagiarism is detected before the article is published, we will alert the author(s), asking them to either rewrite the text or quote the exact text and cite the original source.
