Code of ethics

Administrative investigation adheres to the rules of the COPE. All jobs that are accepted for application will be reviewed with the software Turnitin. To be published, the postulated articles must have a maximum of 24% similarity index, provided that the paraphrase of the cited authors is used correctly.

The journal declares that it is considered unacceptable conduct to discover that plagiarism or self-plagiarism of research work is performed. Since the originality and the unpublished condition of the works is a fundamental requirement. The authors therefore sign a letter guaranteeing that:

  1. There is no conflict of interest.
  2. There is ethics in the design of studies.
  3. Ensures compliance with ethical standards for review.
  4. There is originality of the publications and the magazine's policy against plagiarism is accepted.

The following instances constitute plagiarism:

  1. Direct plagiarism is incurred when: • Authorship is omitted or the glossary is not cited. • Minimal changes are made to the text of a third party and presented as original. • Although authorship is noted, plagiarism is presented because the original text is reproduced with a few changes that do not constitute paraphrase.

  2. Complex plagiarism is incurred when there is an original authorship reference, but the source pages are inaccurately indicated.

  3. Paraphrasing as plagiarism occurs when paraphrasing and not referring to the original source. Paraphrase is not considered plagiarism when it does not dominate over the work of the writer, it is used to allow the author to interact critically with the views of another person, and the source is mentioned correctly.
  4. “Self-plagiarism” or recycling fraud occurs when the appearance of a job is changed and is presented as if it were a different one or the indication that the job is being recycled is omitted.

To treat cases of plagiarism, these procedures are followed:

If plagiarism is detected, the authors are informed of the evidence of plagiarism detected and will be asked for a response. If the answer is not satisfactory, the manuscript will not be submitted for external evaluation and the journal will not receive more articles from the authors. In serious cases in the opinion of the editorial committee, the media in which the original plagiarized article was published (whether it is self-plagiarism or copies of third parties) will be reported.
