Did you know…

The American Journal of Pathology, in partnership with Elsevier, is always working hard to prevent plagiarism and duplicative publication to be able to provide our readers with research that is new and unique.  Every new manuscript that is submitted to AJP is automatically put through screening by iThenticate Plagiarism Detection Software, which is embedded into the EVISE manuscript review platform.  iThenticate scans each new manuscript against its massive database (over 127 million published items, including journal articles, books, magazines, abstracts,  conference proceedings, and web pages) and provides a detailed report showing sections of overlap and providing a link to where the overlapped text currently appears in the literature.


Authors can receive a copy of their manuscript’s iThenticate report by contacting the Editorial office.  Authors receiving ‘revise’ decisions will also be notified of their overlap, so that measures can be taken to reduce and remove duplication. Adding this tool to the submission process helps ensure that content in AJP is novel and unique.
