Plagiarism Policy

What is Plagiarism

"PLAGIARISM" can occur in two forms: 1) author(s) intentionally copy someone elses 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 as "self-plagiarism" or "duplicate publication".

Plagiarism before publication

If plagiarism is detected, either by the editors, peer reviewers or editorial staff at any stage before publication of a manuscript - before or after acceptance, during editing or at page proof stage, we will alert the author(s), asking her or him to either rewrite the text or quote the text exactly and to cite the original source. If the plagiarism is extensive- that is, if at least 15% of the original submission is plagiarized - the article may be rejected and the author's institution/employer notified.

 When is plagiarism check done?

Every manuscript submitted for publication to Dirassat Journal Economic Issue is checked for plagiarism after acceptation.


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 can not be compared to the original manuscript due to restrictions and plagiarism will not be detected.
