Antiplagiarism policy

Plagiarism, i.e., the fact of using someone else’s ideas, words, or other creative work as one's own, is a clear violation of scientific ethics. Plagiarism can also be a violation of copyright law, which is grounds for legal action. As plagiarism considered:

  • verbatim or almost verbatim copying or deliberate paraphrasing of parts of another author’s work without clearly indicating the source or marking the copied fragment (for example, using quotation marks);
  • copying of equations, figures, or tables from someone else’s work without proper attribution and/or permission from the original author or copyright holder.

Disapproving any aspects of plagiarism, the Editorial Board of the “Economics of Ukraine” journal accepts for publication original articles only written for this magazine in particular and which were not previously published in any other printed and electronic periodicals and are not submitted to other periodicals at the same time.

All submitted manuscripts undergo a multi-step plagiarism check using Unichek’s online plagiarism check service and peer review. Any manuscript containing clear signs of plagiarism will be automatically rejected.

If plagiarism is detected in an already published article, it will be retracted by the Editorial Board of the journal following the procedure for retraction of already published articles. The electronic version of the notice of retraction is published on the page of the corresponding article and in the next printed issue of the journal after the fact of violation of academic integrity is discovered. The notice must contain the reason for the retraction and the name of the person who initiated it. The article on the web resource is preserved unchanged, except for a “retracted” watermark on each page in the pdf file.

Manuscripts of authors whose articles contain signs of plagiarism will not be accepted for consideration by the journal for at least two years.
