Internet plagiarism is an epidemic since it is readily available and can be found in every corner. If you submit plagiarized content even without your intention, you not only commit an injustice against the original researchers, but you can severely damage your reputation and be subject to legal ramifications. Now, with the click of a button, OIDA can upload a submission for comparison with content from more than 21,000 journals to ensure articles you send are original work. ScholarOne’s plagiarism checking feature makes it easy to protect the OIDA journal from publishing plagiarized content. OIDA submits your paper (s) to ScholarOne and ScholarOne’s plagiarism protection service to avoid publishing plagiarized contents. OIDA is working with ScholarOne and ScholarOne’s plagiarism protection service lets us quickly and easily submit a manuscript to iThenticate directly from our ScholarOne Manuscripts site. Customized to our workflow, OIDA can set role-by- role submission rights and access the iThenticate link anywhere in the review process. OIDA can also pre-define similarity index thresholds, automatically triggering an email when this meets or exceeds our set value. This notification can be configured to be delivered to anyone. OIDA is also working with CrossRef. CrossRef is an industry-leading non-profit association providing comparison services to help journals ensure only original content is published. When your manuscript is uploaded to the CrossCheck database for verification, it is compared to all other articles in their database using iThenticate technology. In less than a minute, OIDA get a full report of the manuscript’s similarity to all others in the system. This Overall Similarity Index Percentage lets us quickly and easily see how unique the content of the submission is. OIDA can make decisions based on this score or drill down further to see the exact phrases and language matches, allowing us to determine if similarities are because of commonly used phrases within the field or if the author likely borrowed another author’s work. ScholarOne, a Thomson Reuters Business, provides comprehensive workflow management systems for scholarly journals, books, and conferences. Its Web-based application enables publishers to manage the submission, peer review, production, and publication processes more efficiently, increasing their profile among authors, decreasing time-to-market for critical scientific data, and lowering infrastructure costs. ScholarOne offers workflow solutions for the submission and review of manuscripts, abstracts, proceedings and production. Supporting over 365 societies and publishers, over 3,400 books and journals, and 13 million users, ScholarOne is the industry leader. ScholarOne cannot be wrong.
