UOU scientific journal employs an anti-plagiarism policy to guarantee the originality of all its contents.
The editorial team submits all manuscripts received to an anti-plagiarism analysis, as part of the preliminary review, using the Turnitin anti-plagiarism software. This tool makes it possible to detect coincidences or similarities between the papers received and those previously published in other sources.
The journal also investigates possible plagiarism through other means (Internet searches, questions in evaluation reports, complaints from third parties, etc.).
The detection of signs or possible practices of plagiarism, self-plagiarism, covert repeated publications, fraudulent material, etc. will result in the rejection of the article, even if it has already been published.
