Plagiarism is defined as unreferenced use of others published and unpublished ideas in same or other language. The extent of plagiarism in an article can be defined as follow: 

5.1.1 Major plagiarism 

a. ‘Clear plagiarism’: unattributed copying of another person’s data / findings, resubmission of an entire publication under another author’s name (either in the original language or in translation) or major verbatim copying of original material in the absence of any citation to the source, or unattributed use of original, published academic work, such as hypothesis/idea of another person or group where this is a major part of the new publication and there is evidence that it was not developed independently. 

b. ‘self-plagiarism’ or redundancy: When author(s) copy her or his own previously published material either in full or in part, without providing appropriate references. 

5.1.2 Minor plagiarism 

‘Minor copying of short phrases only’ with ‘no misattribution of data’, minor verbatim copying of < 100 words without indicating in direct quotation from an original work unless the text is accepted as widely used or standardized (e.g. as a Material or Method), copying (not verbatim but changed only slightly) of significant sections from another work, whether or not that work is cited. 

5.1.3 Use of images without acknowledgement of the source: republication of an image (image, chart, diagram etc) 

5.2 When do we check for plagiarism 

All manuscripts received by Scientific European (SCIEU)® are checked for plagiarism at every stage of the peer-review and editorial process. 

5.2.1 After Submission and before Acceptance 

Every article submitted to SCIEU ® is checked for plagiarism after submission and initial evaluation and before editorial review. We use Crossref Similarity Check (by iThenticate) for conducting a similarity check. This service enables text-matching from sources which are either not referenced or have been plagiarised in the submitted article. However, this matching of words or phrases could be by chance or due to use of technical phrases. Example, similarity in Materials and Methods section. The editorial team will make a sound judgement based upon various aspects. When minor plagiarism is detected at this stage, article is immediately sent back to the authors asking to disclose all sources correctly. If major plagiarism is detected, manuscript is rejected and the authors are advised to revise and resubmit it as a fresh article. See Section 4.2. Decision on plagiarism 

Once authors revise the manuscript, plagiarism check is done once again by editorial team and if no plagiarism is seen, article is then reviewed as per the editorial process. Else, it is again returned to the authors. 

6. RETRACTION POLICY 

6.1 Grounds for retraction 

The following are the grounds for retraction of published articles in SCIEU® 

a. False authorship 

b. Clear evidence that findings are unreliable due to fraudulent use of data, data fabrication or multiple errors. 

c. Redundant publication: findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper cross referencing or permission 

d. Major plagiarism ‘Clear plagiarism’: unattributed copying of another person’s data / findings, resubmission of an entire publication under another author’s name (either in the original language or in translation) or major copying of original material in the absence of any citation to the source, or unattributed use of original, published academic work, such as the hypothesis/idea of another person or group where this is a major part of the new publication and there is evidence that it was not developed independently. “self-plagiarism” or redundancy: When author(s) copy her or his own previously published material either in full or in part, without providing appropriate references.  

6.2 Retractions 

The main purpose of retractions is to correct the literature and ensure its academic integrity. Articles maybe retracted by the authors or by journal editor. Normally a retraction will be used to correct errors in submission or in publication. However, we reserve the right to retract entire articles even after they have been accepted or have been published. 

6.2.1 Erratum 

Notification of a critical error made by the journal which can affect the publication in its final form, its academic integrity or the reputation of the authors or the magazine. 

6.2.2 Corrigendum (or correction) 

Notification of a critical error made by the author(s) which can affect the publication in its final form, its academic integrity or the reputation of the authors or the journal. This can be either a small portion of an otherwise reliable publication proves to be misleading, the author / contributor list is incorrect. For redundant publication, if article is published in our magazine first, we will issue a notice of redundant publication, but the article will not be retracted. 

6.2.3 Expression of concern 

 An expression of concern will be issued by the journal editors if they receive inconclusive evidence of publication misconduct by the authors, or if there is evidence that data is unreliable.  

6.2.4 Complete article retraction 

Magazine will promptly retract a published article if conclusive evidence is available. When a published article is formally retracted, the following will be published promptly in all versions of the journal (print and electronic) to minimize harmful effects of misleading publication. Magazine will also make sure retractions appear in all electronic searches. 

a. For print version a retraction note titled “Retraction: [article title]” which is signed by the authors and/or the editor is published in the subsequent issue of the journal in the print form. 

b. For electronic version the link of the original article will be replaced by a note containing the retraction note and a link to the retracted article page will be given and it will be clearly identified as a retraction. The article contents will display the ‘Retracted’ watermark across its content and this content will be freely available. 

c. It will be stated who retracted the article – author and/or journal editor 

d. The reason(s) or basis for retraction will be clearly stated 

e. Statements that are potentially defamatory will be avoided 

If authorship is disputed after publication but there is no reason to doubt the validity of the findings or the reliability of the data then the publication will not be retracted. Instead, a corrigendum will be issued along with necessary evidences. Any author cannot dissociate themselves from a retracted publication because it is the joint responsibility of all authors and authors should have no reason to legally challenge a retraction. See Section for our Submission Policy. We will conduct a proper investigation before a retraction and editor may decide to contact author’s institute or funding agency in such matters. Final decision rests with Editor-in-chief.
