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.

  • Storing energy in hydrogen 20 times more effective using platinum-nickel catalyst 14th November 2019
    Catalysts accelerate chemical reactions, but the widely used metal platinum is scarce and expensive. Researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), together with Chinese, Singaporean and Japanese researchers, have now developed an alternative with a 20 times higher activity: a catalyst with hollow nanocages of an alloy of nickel and platinum. TU/e researcher Emiel Hensen […]

    Scientists have reported a new approach to treating lung cancer with inhaled nanoparticles developed at Wake Forest School of Medicine, part of Wake Forest Baptist Health.
  • Novel nanostructures could make smartphones more efficient 14th November 2019
    EU-funded researchers and partners are pushing the boundaries of the laws of physics, developing nanocomposite materials and nanoelectronic circuits to greatly improve energy, thermal and computing performance. This could make smartphones and other electronics more efficient and boost the potential of solar power.
  • Carbon nanotubes open new horizons for neuroscience: controlling neural cell outgrowth 14th November 2019
    Researchers of the Microelectronics Research Unit (MIC) at the University of Oulu, in collaboration with Tampere University, have demonstrated that carbon nanotubes can be used to control the direction of neural cell growth.
  • Graphene: The more you bend it, the softer it gets 14th November 2019
    New research by engineers at the University of Illinois combines atomic-scale experimentation with computer modeling to determine how much energy it takes to bend multilayer graphene—a question that has eluded scientists since graphene was first isolated. The findings are reported in the journal Nature Materials.
  • Precisely poking cells en masse to cure cancer 13th November 2019
    What if you could cure cancer by re-engineering patients' cells to better target and destroy their own tumors? With the advent of powerful new cellular engineering technologies, this is no longer the stuff of science fiction.
  • ELeCt-ing a better candidate for chemo delivery 13th November 2019
    Chemotherapy has been the backbone of cancer treatment for decades, but it is notorious for its toxicity to healthy cells, severe side effects, and poor targeting of the intended tumors. Efforts to improve chemotherapy's efficacy and tolerability include packaging drugs into nanoparticles, which can protect them from degradation in the body, control their release pattern, […]
  • Theoretical tubulanes inspire ultrahard polymers 13th November 2019
    A lightweight material full of holes is nearly as hard as diamond. The mere dents left by speeding bullets prove it.
  • Epitaxially-grown molybdenum oxide advances as a bulk-like 2-D dielectric layer 13th November 2019
    Since the successful isolation of graphene from bulk graphite, remarkable properties of graphene have attracted many scientists to the brand-new research field of 2-D materials. However, despite excellent carrier mobility of graphene, direct application of graphene to field-effect transistors is severely hindered due to its gapless band structure. Alternatively, semiconducting transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) have […]
  • Rational transparent conductor design provides a boost to carbon nanotubes application 13th November 2019
    An international team of scientists led by researchers from the Laboratory of Nanomaterials at the Skoltech Center for Photonics and Quantum Materials (CPQM) has rationally designed a novel p-type flexible transparent conductor using single-walled carbon nanotubes. This opens new avenues for its applications in next generation opto-electronics and energy technologies. The results of the study […]
