Plagiarism Checking and English Language Editing

2022-02-16

Beginning in 2022, the Journal will review all submitted manuscript for evidence of plagiarism using the Akarawisut Plagiarism Detection (www.akarawisut.com) algorithm from Chulalongkorn University. All authors must agree to this requirement when submitting their manuscripts to the Thai Journal of Surgery. Plagiarism is defined as the existence of a substantial portion of the submitted manuscript with identical sentences or paragraphs or data to previous published works without due credit or appropriate referencing. This includes the author's own published works. Paraphrasing without due credit is included as well. For purposes of the Journal, "substantial portion" is defined as at least 20%. We inform the authors that plagiarism by itself may be sufficient grounds for rejection of a submitted manuscript.

in addition, it is strongly recommended that authors consider English editing by professional language editors if the manuscript has been marked as “English Editing Required” by the Journal. Recommended editing services and contact details can be obtained by emailing to Journal.TJS@gmail.com with a request for “English editing services”.
