Plagiarism Policy

The submitted manuscripts are analysed by "Turnitin" plagiarism software and the manuscripts with high plagiarism rate (max 20%) are rejected.

Our journal supports academic integrity, scientific ethics and plagiarism prevention principles. Our authors and reviewers are expected to take a strict stance against plagiarism. This text has been prepared to explain the policies to be applied to prevent plagiarism in our journal.

1- The Concept of Plagiarism: In our journal, plagiarism refers to the unauthorised use or copying of ideas, texts, data or other academic content taken from another source. This violates the rights of individuals or the work of others.

2- Avoiding Plagiarism: We expect our authors to guarantee that the papers they submit are original works and in no way plagiarised from any other source. We expect them to ensure that all citations are made accurately, sources are properly cited, and references are properly cited.

3- Plagiarism Detection: Our journal uses various tools and software for plagiarism detection. Submitted articles can be analysed by the plagiarism detection system and similarities from other sources can be checked. In case of plagiarism detection, the relevant authors and relevant organisations are notified and necessary steps are taken.

4- Action Plan in Case of Plagiarism: When plagiarism is detected in our journal, the following steps are followed:

a. Plagiarism is detected and the degree of plagiarism is determined.
b. The authors of the plagiarised article are notified and evidence of plagiarism is presented.
c. Authors are asked to respond to plagiarism allegations.
d. The defence of the relevant authors and other relevant information are taken into consideration.
e. If plagiarism is confirmed as a result of the evaluation, the publication of the article is rejected and the relevant parties are informed.
