Plagiarism Policy

What is plagiarism?

"Plagiarism" can occur in two forms: 1) author(s) intentionally copy someone else's work and claim it as their own; or 2) author(s) copy her or his own previously published material, either in full or in part, without providing appropriate references—also called "self-plagiarism" or "duplicate publication.". 

When is the plagiarism check done?

Every manuscript submitted for publication in the Dirassat Journal Economic Issue is checked for plagiarism before being sent to review. If the plagiarism is extensive—that is, if at least 20% of the original submission is plagiarized—the article may be rejected and the author's notified.

We are using DETECTIA software to check for plagiarism.


It may happen that the manuscript is not freely accessible to article indexing services due to restrictions by programmers, journals or publishers; or it is available on the journal website but not yet indexed by article indexing services. In such cases, when plagiarism check is done, the content of the manuscript being checked cannot be compared to the original manuscript due to restrictions and plagiarism will not be detected.
