Journals Online project introduces iThenticate to editors in developing countries

INASP’s Journals Online project has introduced iThenticate software to the editors of journals on the BanglaJOL, NepJOL and SLJOL platforms through CrossCheck.

CrossCheck, powered by iThenticate, is an initiative started by CrossRef to help its members actively engage in efforts to prevent scholarly and professional plagiarism.

'Within a few days of its availability, the editors of the JOL journals have shown their keen interest in incorporating the iThenticate software into their workflows to check for plagiarism and thus improve the quality of their journals,' said Sioux Cumming, programme manager, Journals Online at INASP.

Uthpala Karunarathne, scientific officer at the Journal of National Science Foundation of Sri Lanka, welcoming the initiative, said: 'All this time we have been using free online plagiarism checkers which does not allow checking the whole paper but parts of the paper due to word limitations. I believe iThenticate will allow us check the papers more easily and accurately and increase the standards of our journal.'

iThenticate is the leading provider of professional plagiarism detection and prevention technology used worldwide by scholarly publishers and research institutions that ensures the originality of written work prior to publication.

It helps editors, authors and researchers prevent misconduct by comparing manuscripts against its database of over 56 billion web pages and 142 million content items, including 44 million works from 590 scholarly publisher participants of CrossCheck, a service offered by CrossRef and powered by iThenticate software.
