Transformational  Language, Literature, And Technology Overview In Learning Journal Editorial Team acknowledges that plagiarism is unacceptable and has established the following policy detailing specific actions (penalties) to be taken when plagiarism is found in an article submitted for publication in TRANSTOOL  JOURNAL.


Plagiarism is the intentional or unintentional act of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit or value for scientific work by citing any or all of another party's work and/or scientific work recognized as its scientific work, without appropriately and fully indicating the source.

For that, then:

Articles must be original, have never been published, and are not currently being evaluated for publication else. Material acquired verbally from other sources must be properly noted in order to be distinguished from the original text. If plagiarism is revealed, the Editor-in-Chief is responsible for reviewing the article and will approve the action based on the level of the plagiarism revealed, according to the rules below:

Plagiarism Level

1. Plagiarized some short sentences from other articles without mentioning the source.

Action: The author is given a warning and request to change the text and quote correctly.

2. Plagiarized most other articles without proper citations and did not mention the source.

Action: Submitted articles are rejected for publication in TRANSTOOL JOURNAL and authors may be sanctioned for not being allowed publication in TRANSTOOL JOURNAL.

Because they all sign the TRANSTOOL JOURNAL Publication Ethics Statement Form, all article authors are responsible for the content of the articles they submit. If the article is found to be plagiarized, all authors will face the same punishment. If it is confirmed that the author submitted a paper to TRANSTOOL JOURNAL while also submitting it to other journals, and this overlap is found during the reviewer process or after publication, action is taken following point 2 above. If plagiarism is discovered outside of the above-mentioned standards, the editor of TRANSTOOL  JOURNAL has the authority to impose punishments following the editor's team's policy.

Every manuscript that submitted into TRANSTOOL JOURNAL is going to be scanned using Turnitin (similarity check). The similarity threshold is 25%. We will reject the manuscript with similarity rate above 25% and inform the author immediately through the email.
