Get the webinar recording sent directly to your inbox

About the webinar:

Among the primary aims of conducting peer review at academic journals is ensuring submissions are original works to protect the reputations of researchers, publications, and the scholarly record.

The advent of plagiarism detection technology has made it possible to scan millions of full-text documents from research articles to preprints to conference proceedings to spot possible instances of plagiarism. It also means editors must continually hone their plagiarism detection protocols to remain judicious and adequately distinguish the signal from the noise. This webinar will cover evolving plagiarism detection needs and current best practices for journals, including:

  • Indicators of possible plagiarism and detection tools editors can use
  • How to interpret plagiarism detection results fairly and expeditiously
  • When to escalate possible instances of plagiarism and proper protocols
  • Current recommendations for plagiarism of preprinted works
