Plagiarism policy

Each article submitted for publication in the journal is checked for the originality of the text.

“Karelian Scientific Journal" uses the software “Antiplagiat. Expert" to detect cases of coincidence and similarity of the text in the submitted manuscripts.

The originality of the text of the article must be at least 75% (the text of the article must contain at least 8000 characters without spaces).

Before to check the article (check is required), use the Antiplagiat website (the results are kept by the author and sent at the request of the editorial board).

If, when typesetting in InDesign or uploading to the RSCI (they see everything), your article will find a replacement of the same type of letters from different alphabets, words are inserted in the form of formulas or incorrect characters are applied in words in order to increase the originality of the text (unfortunately Word and Antiplagiat of this do not see) – the article will be deleted, and all information will be transferred to your organization.


1) The Higher Attestation Commission has a negative attitude to articles written in co-authorship, and when there are more than one, even more so (with the exception of articles under a grant).

2) it is undesirable to use in the article partially already published material by you – either change it, or simply indicate in the text that this issue was considered by you there and there – otherwise we will have to subsequently retraction (withdrawal) of the article from the RSCI and the journal (DISSERNET is currently tracking such cases).
