Taking the ideas and work of others without giving them credit is unfair and dishonest. Copying even one sentence from someone else's manuscript, or even one of your own that has previously been published, without proper citation is considered plagiarism-use your own words instead.
Journal of Health Literacy(HLJ) is a member of the CrossCheck plagiarism detection initiative. In cases of suspected plagiarism, CrossCheck is available to the editor to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. CrossCheck is a multi-publisher initiative allowing screening of published and submitted content for originality.
