Ology Press Plagiarism Code

Plagiarism is the theft of ideas, thoughts, content or procedures. Plagiarism can occur in any type of work, including research and educational material. Reusing content without proper citing the author or without the author’s consent is also plagiarism, even if the author publishes the content on the internet.

When Isaac Newton once said, “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants,” he was attributing his success to the scientific knowledge he learned from others. While all scientists “stand on the shoulders” by using knowledge they gain by reading the works of others, academic plagiarism occurs when someone depends on another’s innovative thoughts and ideas.

There are three main types of plagiarism – self, unintentional, and blatant. Self-plagiarism occurs when an author copies his or her own idea published in another work. An author may commit unintentional plagiarism by inadequately citing original sources. Authors who commit self-plagiarism or unintentional plagiarism often do so mistakenly – many do not realize it is an offense to plagiarize oneself or be unaware they are copying another person’s ideas.

Blatant plagiarism is the intentional use of content without giving credit to the original author. Intentional plagiarism is a crime.

Many cases of plagiarism are accidental and occur when the author uses common scientific phrases, such as lists of symptoms appearing in medical research or the description of various chemical properties. Anti-plagiarism tools, widely available on the internet, help authors detect, correct, and properly cite duplicate content before submission to Ology Press.
