Plagiarism

About Ethic principles and Plagiarism we would like to quote Bela Gipp definition of the academic plagiarism:

The use of ideas, concepts, words, or structures
without appropriately acknowledging the source
to benefit in a setting where originality is expected.

Following Teddi Fishman (Clemson University, USA ) (Fishman, Teddi (Sep 28–30, 2009). “We know it when we see it is not good enough: toward a standard definition of plagiarism that transcends theft, fraud, and copyright“. Proceedings of the 4th Asia-Pacific Conference on Educational Integrity. p.5) we quote and at the same time adopt the next five inadmissible characteristics of the  plagiarism. The plagiarism occurs when someone:

  • Uses words, ideas, or work products;
  • Attributable to another identifiable person or source;
  • Without attributing the work to the source from which it has been obtained;
  • In a situation in which there is a legitimate expectation of original authorship;
  • In order to obtain some benefit, credit, or gain which need not be monetary.

Here we quote some known supplementary definitions:

  • Yale views plagiarism as the “Use of another’s work, words, or ideas without attribution“, which includes “Using a source’s language without quoting, using information from a source without attribution, and paraphrasing a source in a form that stays too close to the original.” (What is Plagiarism”. Yale College. 2012-07-27.)
  • Princeton perceives plagiarism as the “deliberate” use of “Someone else’s language, ideas, or other original (not common-knowledge) material without acknowledging its source.” (“Defining and Avoiding Plagiarism: The WPA Statement on Best Practices”. Princeton University. 2012-07-27)

Self-plagiarism

Self-plagiarism, also known as “recycling fraud” (Dellavalle, Robert P.; Banks, Marcus A.; Ellis, Jeffrey I. (September 2007). Frequently asked questions regarding self-plagiarism: How to avoid recycling fraud”Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology 57 (3): 527. doi:10.1016/j.jaad.2007.05.018 occurs when an author reuses whole or portions of his own published and copyrighted work in any publication, but without being cited the source.

We declare that manuscripts containing at least one of the above-stated inadmissible characteristics concerning plagiarism and self-plagiarism would not be considered for publication. Then the following sanctions will be applied:

  • We will inform our colleagues and partners for proved plagiarism or self-plagiarism.
  • Prohibition against all of the authors for minimum of one year.

  • Electron-phonon instability in graphene revealed by global and local noise probes 23rd April 2019
    Understanding nonequilibrium phenomena to effectively control it is an outstanding challenge in science and engineering. In a recent study, Trond. I. Andersen and colleagues at the departments of physics, chemistry, materials science and engineering in the USA, Japan and Canada used electricity to drive ultraclean graphene devices out-of-equilibrium and observe the manifested instability as enhanced […]
  • Scientists explore the unknown behaviour of gold nanoparticles with neutrons 23rd April 2019
    Nanoparticles of less than 100 nanometres in size are used to engineer new materials and nanotechnologies across a variety of sectors. Their small size means these particles have a very high surface area to volume ratio and their properties depend strongly on their size, shape and bound molecules. This offers engineers greater flexibility when designing […]
  • Research team discovers perfectly imperfect twist on nanowire growth 23rd April 2019
    For years, researchers have been trying to find ways to grow an optimal nanowire, using crystals with perfectly aligned layers all along the wire.
  • Modified 'white graphene' for eco-friendly energy 22nd April 2019
    Scientists from Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU), together with colleagues from the United States and Germany, have found a way to obtain inexpensive catalysts from hexagonal boron nitride or "white graphene." The technology can be used in the production of environmentally friendly hydrogen fuel.

    Researchers from Tokyo Metropolitan University have used carbon nanotube templates to produce nanowires of transition metal monochalcogenide (TMM), which are only 3 atoms wide in diameter. These are 50 times longer than previous attempts and can be studied in isolation, preserving the properties of atomically quasi "1D" objects. The team saw that single wires twist […]

    Checking out a stack of books from the library is as simple as searching the library's catalog and using unique call numbers to pull each book from their shelf locations. Using a similar principle, scientists at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN)—a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility at Brookhaven National […]
  • Nanoscale magnetic imaging of ferritin in a single cell 18th April 2019
    In life sciences, the ability to measure the distribution of biomolecules inside a cell in situ is an important investigative goal. Among a variety of techniques, scientists have used magnetic imaging (MI) based on the nitrogen vacancy center (NV) in diamonds as a powerful tool in biomolecular research. However, nanoscale imaging of intracellular proteins has […]
