The Taylor and Francis Editorial Office team is hosting training for our Editors to use the Crossref Similarity CheckTM software, to screen papers for unoriginal material.
The training will include: how to submit a paper to Crossref Similarity CheckTM via the ScholarOne Manuscripts or Editorial Manager submission site of a journal; what should Editors be looking for in a similarity report that could aid analysis and some important ethical considerations to bear in mind.
We are hosting one-hour long webinars every alternate month that cover the use of Crossref Similarity Check software via ScholarOne Manuscripts and Editorial Manager. If you are not sure which system your journal uses, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
This training is geared towards anyone with an editor role and is open to all Taylor & Francis journal editors. The webinars will take the format of a demonstration, followed by a brief question and answer session. However, please note the trainer will be unable to answer questions about specific journal sites.
After completing this training, you will be directed to a brief Crossref Similarity Check training quiz to have Crossref Similarity Check enabled on your journal’s peer review site and have permissions enabled for access.
