Plagiarism Policy

Within the Scientific Papers. Series A. Agronomy there are analysed potential cases of plagiarism on their own merits. The Journal's Editorial Board uses an anti-plagiarism software system, to check the articles received for publishing, called Plagiarism Checker X.
If a plagiarism act is detected at any stage - before or after the acceptance, we will:

  • if less than 25% of the original submission is plagiarized - inform the authors about the issue so in order to avoid the article's rejection, they can either rewrite the parts found as copied, either cite the original sources;
  • if more than 25% of the original submission is plagiarized - reject the article and notify the author.

Additionally, as a CrossRef member, we are looking forward to implementing the CrossCheck system, that is well-suited to filtering academic content, being one of the best methods to detect the plagiarism in the online scientific community.


The publisher is not responsible for the opinions published in the Volume. They represent the authors’ point of view.
