following types of plagiarism should be avoided:
Verbatim copying. Verbatim copying of more

or the use of quotation marks.
Paraphrasing. Improper paraphrasing of
another person's work is where more than one sentence within a paragraph or
section of text has been changed or sentences have been rearranged without
appropriate attribution. Significant improper paraphrasing (more than 10 per
cent of a work) without appropriate attribution is treated as seriously as
Re-using parts of a work without attribution. Re-use of
elements of another person's work, for example a figure, table or paragraph
without acknowledgement, references or the use of quotation marks. It is incumbent
on the author to obtain the necessary permission to reuse elements of another
person's work from the copyright holder.
Self plagiarism. Our requirement is that all

not been published before. If elements of a work have been previously published
in another publication, including Vysshee Obrazovanie v Rossii publication,
the author is required to acknowledge the earlier work and indicate how the
subsequent work differs and builds upon the research and conclusions contained

publication and presentation of their ideas that have culminated in the final
work, including conference papers, workshop presentations and listserv

In order for us to take an unbiased approach, we investigate each case
thoroughly, seeking clarification from all affected parties.

we would always seek a response from the original author(s) or copyright
holder(s) before we decide on a course of action. We will not be influenced by
other parties and will form our decisions in an unbiased and objective manner.
Editors are not obliged to discuss individual cases of alleged
plagiarism with third parties. We reserve the right not to proceed with a case
