Ethical issues

In the event that members of the editorial board have a conflict of interest related to the submission of an article, they will agree to withdraw from the committee during its deliberations and not participate in its decisions.

The journal Eugesta has adopted an anti-plagiarism policy in accordance with the good practice of ethics and scientific integrity set out in the COPE core practice.

Plagiarism is appropriating the creative work of other people without quoting or mentioning them. This includes passages of texts, images, and data… coming from external sources, which are integrated in the papers without indicating the sources. This also includes summarizing the original ideas of other scholars by expressing it in the author’s own words, but omitting a mention of the source.

The fact that, in our reviewing process, our priority is to have submitted papers refereed by specialists who have written dissertations, books or papers on the author, the theme, and the approach chosen, is in itself a guarantee that protects against plagiarism.

In addition, Eugesta uses the Compilatio anti-plagiarism software to help it detect plagiarism in texts submitted to it.

If plagiarism is found, the article is immediately withdrawn from the production process. The author will not be allowed to make further submissions to the journal. If there is any doubt about plagiarism, the author is asked to explain and correct the text.
