Plagiarism policy

The editorial board of the journal is committed to publishing only original material, i.e., material that has neither been published elsewhere, nor is under review elsewhere. The journal uses software to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. Manuscripts, in which plagiarism or textual borrowings are found without reference to the original source, are rejected by the editorial board for publication in the collection. The articles are checked for plagiarism using the software developed by the Polish company

The editorial board of the scientific collection judge any case of plagiarism on its own merits. If plagiarism is detected, either by editors or by reviewers at any stage before publication of a manuscript, the author(s) will be alerted asking him/her to either rewrite the text or quote the text exactly and cite the original source.

The manuscripts in which plagiarism is detected are handled based on the extent of plagiarism present in the manuscript: if there is less than 70% uniqueness, the manuscript is rejected without editorial review. The authors are advised to revise the plagiarized parts of the manuscript and resubmit it as a fresh manuscript.
