The editorial board of Scientific Horizons informs the authors that they bear full personal responsibility for incorrect borrowing or use of research results of others and adherence to the ethics of scientific citation.
Authors must ensure:
- the originality of the articles submitted, that is, materials that have not been published in other publications in any languages;
- absence of plagiarism;
- links to relevant sources, if works or texts of third parties are used.
Scientific Horizons uses Unicheck software to detect plagiarism.
To prevent plagiarism, the editorial board takes the following measures:
- the article is verified for borrowings from the articles of third parties without appropriate links to the source with the use of a computer software;
- when considering the article, a conclusion is made about the absence or presence of plagiarism.
Plagiarism in all forms is unacceptable and is considered unethical. Manuscripts submitted to the editorial board are verified for originality according to the following indicators: if the originality of the text is over 80%, then the material is allowed for publication; 50-80% – the author should verify the correctness of the citations and references to the sources used; 40-50% – the material is sent for revision with subsequent mandatory re-verification; under 40% – the material is not accepted for consideration.
