Recommendations for avoiding plagiarism

  1. Use quotation marks for any text fragment of a sentence or more, taken verbatim or with minor changes from the source (with reference to this source).
  2. In the case of an arbitrary retelling of another author's text, the reference to the author must be included at least once in each paragraph of the text of the arbitrary retelling.
  3. If the citation is not from the original source, reference should be made to the direct source of the citation ("cited by:")
  4. Do not change parts of the quote in the context of the sentence
  5. Use individual characters for the quote in the quote
  6. Use three dots (space and three dots) for the part of the omitted quotation
  7. Use parentheses for added own words

Plagiarism after publication

Plagiarism detected after the publication of the article is analyzed by the editorial board. Upon the fact of detected plagiarism, the editorial board will contact the author. Pages that contain plagiarism will be marked in the PDF file. Depending on the extent of the plagiarism, the document may also be revoked or deleted.
