Plagiarism, where someone assumes another’s ideas, words, or other creative expression as one’s own, is a clear violation of scientific ethics.
Plagiarism includes the following:
• Word for word, or almost word for word copying, or purposely paraphrasing portions of another author’s work without clearly indicating the source or marking the copied fragment;
• Copying figures or tables from someone else’s paper without properly citing the source and/or without permission from the original author or the copyright holder;
• Plagiarizing one’s own work (self-plagiarism).
Any paper which shows obvious signs of plagiarism will be rejected. In case plagiarism is discovered in a paper that has already been published by the journal Demografija, the paper will be retracted, and journal will permanently suspend the cooperation with authors who plagiarized somebody else’s work.
