Plagiarism – the same word most people feel. Plagiarism can occur in several ways and I would like to believe that it is rarely intentionally or maliciously. Rather, I believe that the vast majority of plagiarism incidents occur involuntarily due to a lack of understanding of what constitutes plagiarism or lack of attention and lack of attention to detail. Regardless of intent, the result is the same: use the ideas or words of another person without due attribution. Publishers take plagiarism seriously and diligently review articles to the extent of their ability to ensure that submitted manuscripts are properly assigned original works as needed. Most editors and publishers use plagiarism detection software to search for duplicate content.

New writers do not realize that, in most cases, when a manuscript has been accepted for publication, authors must sign the copyright forms that transfer the copyright of the manuscript to the publisher. In this case, the “ownership” of the manuscript transferred to the publisher. Therefore, if the author writes a future script on a similar topic, the author should follow the same rules that cite the original work and ask permission from the owner of the publisher / author to reprint figures or tables of the original work.

To avoid plagiarism, even accidental, authors should

• understand what constitutes plagiarism so that they can properly incorporate the ideas of others in their work with a specific use of dating and dating;
• learning to make and organize notes during extensive research and literature review;
• ensure complete and detailed monitoring of raw materials;
• Understand the advantages and disadvantages of using plagiarism detection software.
Even accidental plagiarism can have serious consequences. Careful monitoring and detailed ideas and contents throughout the literature and writing process will ensure that you are not surprised by this important stage of your publishing efforts.
