Plagiarism Policy


Our Journal rejects any material that breaks legal requirements regarding plagiarism!

We check all submitted manuscripts by software before the review process. If plagiarism is detected, the submitted manuscript is rejected.  The software calculated a proportion of manuscript fragments comprising a minimum of 8 words in a row and coinciding with internet sources and the inside database. The manuscript will be rejected if the proportion of the coincided text is more than 15 %.

Variations of plagiarism are:

  • copying and publication of papers by other authors;
  • verbatim copying of fragments of the text (from a phrase to a set of sentences) from someone else's paper without proper references;
  • making minor corrections to the copied material (reformulation of sentences, changing the order of words in them, etc.) without adequate quoting;
  • excessive use of paraphrases. Paraphrasing is retelling other people's thoughts, ideas, or text in your own words. The essence of the paraphrase consists in replacing words (signs), phraseological units, or sentences in using any author's scientific paper (stored on electronic or paper media, including posting on the Internet).
  • Multiple, redundant, or concurrent publication.
    An author should not publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication.



Please note that preprints can be shared anywhere at any time. Sharing your preprints, e.g., on a preprint server, will not count as prior publication.


EEJP does not view the following uses of a work as prior publication: publication in the form of an abstract, publication as an academic thesis, or publication as an electronic preprint.

Plagiarism after publication

If plagiarism is detected after publication, the Journal will conduct an investigation. If plagiarism is found, the journal editorial office will contact the author's institute and funding agencies. The paper containing the plagiarism will be marked on each page of the PDF. Depending on the extent of the plagiarism, the paper may also be formally retracted.

Recommendations for avoiding plagiarism

  • Use quotation marks around words taken verbatim from a source
  • Change no part of the quotation within the context of the sentence
  • Use single marks for a quote within a quotation
  • Use ellipses (a space and three periods) for omitted quotation parts.
  • Use brackets around added words
  • Limit the use of direct quotes
  • Summarize the information derived from a variety of sources using your own words.

Authors are responsible for obtaining copyright permission to reproduce illustrations, tables, and figures taken from other authors and/or sources. Permission must be placed at the foot of each figure.
