Plagiarism prevention

Plagiarized papers are not published in any journal published by Sprin Publisher. Plagiarism, defined as taking someone else's ideas, words, or other creative expression and passing them off as one's own, is a clear violation of scientific ethics, according to the Editorial Board. Plagiarism can also result in a copyright violation, resulting in legal action.

Turnitin and Grammarly software are used to check all papers published in our journals.

Plagiarism can be defined as:

  • Copying another author's work verbatim (word for word) or nearly verbatim, or purposefully paraphrasing portions of another author's work without clearly indicating the source or marking the copied fragment (for example, using quotation marks) in the manner described under Authors' responsibilities;
  • Without adequately citing the source and permission from the original author or the copyright holder, copying contents (equations, figures, or tables) from someone else's paper.

Any manuscript that appears to be plagiarised will be automatically rejected. If plagiarism is discovered in a paper that has already been published in the journal, the paper will be retracted according to the procedure outlined in the Retraction policy.
