Plagiarism Policy

The editing and review process play an important role in successful manuscript publishing. We promise a transparent and quality peer-review process. To assure this, it is an obligation to assist the scientific community in all aspects of publishing ethics, especially in cases of plagiarism.

Plagiarism is presenting someone else’s work or ideas as your own, with or without their consent, by incorporating it into your work without full acknowledgment. This applies for all kind of plagiarism, including but not limited to:

    • Using the exact words of another writer in part of a paper without both citation and quotation marks (or block indentation in the case of longer quotations)
    • Cutting and pasting material from the Internet or other electronic resources without proper citation of sources
    • Including the paraphrased or summarized idea of another writer without acknowledging its source
    • Submitting for credit a complete paper or portion of a paper written by another person, no matter whether the paper was purchased, shared freely, stolen, found or acquired by other means
    • Submitting music, drawings, paintings, sculptures or photographs that copy or rely closely on the work of other artists, without explicitly citing the original source
    • Writing a computer program that is the same or closely similar to existing sources
    • Accepting credit for a project, multimedia presentation, poster or other assignments that draws dishonestly on the work of others
