Anti-plagiarism and borrowings
Articles are checked using the "Anti-Plagiat VUZ" system. In the case of multiple borrowings, the editorial board acts in accordance with the rules of the Committee on Publication Ethics.
The optimal indicator for checking an article is at least 70% of the originality of the text. Indicators below this threshold are examined on a case-by-case basis for borrowings, formalized citations, plagiarism and self-citation (self-plagiarism).
Plagiarism of other people's works, use of other people's texts, borrowing of the author's wording without making references is not allowed. When such cases are detected, the editorial board has the right to reject the article without reviewing, notifying the author of its decision and attaching to the letter the report of the system.
The author has the right to appeal against the decision of the editorial board, if the system of detection of plagiarism mistakenly indicated plagiarism, if there is a case of reverse plagiarism (the author's texts were borrowed in the sources, to which the report of the system indicates). In this case the author should attach to his appeal scanned copies of his works, earlier in date, proving his authorship of the found fragments of reverse plagiarism.
Self-citation - the use in the text of the article of fragments of own text, published in other works earlier, is considered acceptable in the following cases:
up to 80% of own text - from the text of the report at the conference, published in the conference proceedings, if no more than 2 years have passed since the conference;
up to 30% of the text of their own publications (article in another or the same publication, monograph), if no more than 10 years have passed since the publication of the article.
Regarding the self-citation of the thesis texts by the authors, the editorial board is guided by the general recommendations of COPE. When self-citing, the author must always give a reference to the text of his/her dissertation, indicating the year of its defense.
