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.

  • 3-D reconstructions of individual nanoparticles 2nd April 2020
    What do you see in the picture above? Merely a precisely-drawn three-dimensional picture of nanoparticles? Far more than that, nanotechnologists will say, due to a new study published in the journal Science. Whether a material catalyzes chemical reactions or impedes any molecular response is all about how its atoms are arranged. The ultimate goal of […]
  • Graphene-based actuator swarm enables programmable deformation 1st April 2020
    Actuators that can convert various environmental stimuli to mechanical work have revealed great potential for developing smart devices such as soft robots, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), and automatic lab-on-a-chip systems. Generally, bilayer structures are widely used for design and fabrication of stimuli responsive actuators. In the past decade, to pursue fast and large-scale deformation, great efforts […]
  • AI finds 2-D materials in the blink of an eye 1st April 2020
    Researchers at the Institute of Industrial Science, a part of The University of Tokyo, demonstrated a novel artificial intelligence system that can find and label 2-D materials in microscope images in the blink of an eye. This work can help shorten the time required for 2-D material-based electronics to be ready for consumer devices.
  • Phage capsid against influenza: Perfectly fitting inhibitor prevents viral infection 31st March 2020
    A new approach brings the hope of new therapeutic options for suppressing seasonal influenza and avian flu. On the basis of an empty and therefore non-infectious shell of a phage virus, researchers from Berlin have developed a chemically modified phage capsid that stifles influenza viruses.
  • Mystery solved: The origin of the colors in the first color photographs 31st March 2020
    A palette of colors on a silver plate: That is what the world's first color photograph looks like. It was taken by French physicist Edmond Becquerel in 1848. His process was empirical, never explained, and quickly abandoned. Now, a team at the Centre de recherche sur la conservation (CNRS/Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle/Ministère de la Culture), […]
  • Heart attack on a chip: Scientists model conditions of ischemia on a microfluidic device 30th March 2020
    Researchers led by biomedical engineers at Tufts University invented a microfluidic chip containing cardiac cells that is capable of mimicking hypoxic conditions following a heart attack—specifically when an artery is blocked in the heart and then unblocked after treatment. The chip contains multiplexed arrays of electronic sensors placed outside and inside the cells that can […]
  • Double-walled nanotubes have electro-optical advantages 27th March 2020
    One nanotube could be great for electronics applications, but there's new evidence that two could be tops.
  • A new 'gold standard' for safer ceramic coatings 27th March 2020
    Making your own ceramics can be a way to express your creativity, but some techniques and materials used in the process could spell bad news for your health and the environment. If not prepared properly, some glazed ceramics can leach potentially harmful heavy metals. Scientists now report progress toward a new type of glaze that […]
  • 3-D printed sensors could make breath tests for diabetes possible 27th March 2020
    The production of highly sensitive sensors is a complex process: It requires many steps and the almost dust-free environment of special cleanrooms. A research team from Materials Science at Kiel University (CAU) and from Biomedical Engineering at the Technical University of Moldova has now developed a procedure to produce extremely sensitive and energy-efficient sensors using […]
  • Low-cost graphene-iron filters that selectively separate gaseous mixtures 27th March 2020
    UNSW researchers have shown how a new class of low-cost graphene-based membranes—a type of filter used in industry sectors that generate enormous mixed waste gases, such as solid plastic waste, biowaste or wastewater—can be selectively tuned to separate different gases from gaseous mixtures.
