Policy of Screening for Plagiarism
Papers submitted to the Judex Laguens will be screened for plagiarism using Turnitin plagiarism detection tools. Judex Laguens will immediately reject papers leading to plagiarism or self-plagiarism.
Before submitting articles to reviewers, those are first checked for similarity/plagiarism tools, by a member of the editorial team. The papers submitted to the Judex Laguens must have a similarity level of less than 25% (including Bibliography and Quote), and the similarity score to each source is no more than 5%.
Plagiarism is the exposure of another person’s thoughts or words as though they were your own, without permission, credit, or acknowledgment, or because of failing to cite the sources properly. Plagiarism can take diverse forms, from literal copying to paraphrasing the work of another. To accurately judge whether an author has plagiarized, we emphasize the following possible situations:
- An author can literally copy another author’s work- by copying word by word, in whole or in part, without permission, acknowledging or citing the original source. This practice can be identified by comparing the original source and the manuscript/work that is suspected of plagiarism.
- Substantial copying implies an author reproducing a substantial part of another author, without permission, acknowledgment, or citation. The substantial term can be understood in terms of quality and quantity, often used in the context of Intellectual property. Quality refers to the relative value of the copied text in proportion to the work as a whole.
- Paraphrasing involves taking ideas, words, or phrases from a source and crafting them into new sentences within the writing. This practice becomes unethical when the author does not properly cite or does not acknowledge the original work/author. This form of plagiarism is the more difficult form to be identified.

- the findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper crossreferencing, permission, or justification (i.e. cases of redundant publication)
- it constitutes plagiarism
- it reports unethical research
The mechanism of retraction follows the Retraction Guidelines of Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) which can be accessed at https://doi.org/10.24318/cope.2019.1.4
Withdrawal of Manuscripts
The author is not allowed to withdraw the submitted manuscript because the withdrawal is a waste of valuable resources that editors and referees spent a great deal of time processing the submitted manuscript, and works invested by the Publisher. However, the authors could suggest the withdrawal if there is no updated progress review information after six months from our side.
- Manuscript in Review Process. If the author still requests withdrawal of his/her manuscript when the manuscript is still in the peer-reviewing process, the author will be punished with paying $10 per paper as a withdrawal penalty to the Publisher. However, it is unethical to withdraw a submitted manuscript from one journal if accepted by another journal.
- Accepted Manuscript for publication. The withdrawal of the accepted manuscript for publication will be punished by paying US$30 per manuscript. Withdrawal of the manuscript is only allowed after the penalty has been fully paid to the Publisher. If the author(s) does not agree with the penalty, the author and his/her affiliation will be blacklisted for publication in this journal.
