Before sending the article to the reviewers, it is checked if it contains any plagiarised parts, by the anti-plagiarism program using system.
If the Editorial Board suspects plagiarism in the case of the article submitted for print, the anti-plagiarism procedure is set in motion, whose consecutive steps are the following:

  • The editor collects full documentation together with the evidences;
  • The editor checks the degree of match between the texts in terms of possible repetitions. To this end, the editor both employs an anti-plagiarism tool and makes a simple comparison of texts. In the case of paraphrasing or self-plagiarism, the editor applies a thought-out analysis of the texts.
