The Editorial Board of "Economic Innovation" uses the software to detect text borrowings in the submitted manuscripts: Detector Plagiarist, Antiplagiat, eTXT. Manuscripts that detected plagiarism or text borrowing without referrals to the original source are rejected by the editorial board before the article is published in the journal.

Plagiarism before publication

If plagiarism or text borrowing is detected by editors or reviewers at any stage before the publication of the manuscript, the author (s) warn of the need to rewrite the text or make a reference to the original. If plagiarism is more than a quarter of the article's size, the editorial office may refuse to publish such material and the article will be rejected, and the organization where the author works can be informed.

Recommendations to authors about avoiding plagiarism:

  • Try to paraphrase information using your own words or summarize information from different sources, accompany the synthesis of the thoughts of other authors with references to sources of information and add as your resume your own thoughts and your own position on a particular scientific problem;
  • Try to restrict the use of direct quotations, and if they are used, apply quotes for words taken verbatim from the source of information;
  • Use three dots (space and three dots) to fill out the part of the quote in the text, extract information taken from the source of information;
  • Do not change parts of the quote in the context of the sentence;
  • Place quotation marks for each quotation and use separate quotes (paws in the paws) if you quote a material that has quoted part or all of the material from another source;
  • Use brackets for added own words that you consider appropriate to put among quotations.


The edition of the collection of scientific papers "Economic Innovations" is of the opinion that autoplagyat (the author's use in the article of his own materials, which has already been published earlier) is unethical. Each manuscript is protected by copyright after its publication, so the author no longer owns the rights to re-publish these materials, issuing them as new ones, and can not literally repeat them in subsequent publications. An exception may be the quoting of the author's short phrases from his own work with the placement of the relevant references.
