Plagiarism is unacknowledged copying or an attempt to misattribute original authorship, whether of ideas, text or results.

Plagiarism can be said to have clearly occurred when large chunks of text have been cut-and-pasted without appropriate and unambiguous attribution. Such manuscripts would not be considered for publication in journal. "Text recycling" or reuse of parts of text from an author's previous research publication is a form of self-plagiarism.

Duplicate publication occurs when an author reuses substantial parts of his or her own published work without providing the appropriate references. This can range from publishing an identical paper in multiple journals, to only adding a small amount of new data to a previously published paper.

Journal editors assess all such cases on their individual merits. When plagiarism becomes evident post-publication, we may correct or retract the original publication depending on the degree of plagiarism, context within the published article and its impact on the overall integrity of the published study.

In case of detection of copyright infringement (plagiarism) after publication, the article is not deleted from the journal’s archive (on the website) and is marked as “PLAGIARISM” in accordance with international protocols of anti-plagiarism policy. This article marked as "PLAGIARISM" appears in all resources in which the journal is indexed. The editorial office may impose penalties within the framework of the material and moral damage caused to the Licensee in accordance with clause 6.4 of License agreement.
