JONAH is trying to help editors verify the originality of submitted manuscripts. As part of this process, selected submitted manuscripts are scanned and compared with the Grammarly® Plagiarism Checker and Turnitin database.
Plagiarism is when an author attempts to pass off someone else 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.
