Plagiarism Policy

Finance, Markets and Valuation is committed to publishing only original material, i.e., material that has neither been published elsewhere, nor is under review elsewhere. The journal uses software to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. Manuscripts that are found to have plagiarized will be removed from the journal.

Plagiarism before publication
All articles will undergo a preliminary editorial evaluation to detect plagiarism, before contacting the externalreviewers. The manuscripts in which extensive plagiarism is detected (more than 35%), are rejected without editorial review. The authors are advised to revise the plagiarized parts of the manuscript and resubmit it as a new manuscript. If plagiarism is detected during the review process or at any stage before publication, either by the Editors or peer reviewers, the Editor will alert the author(s), asking her or him to either rewrite the text or quote the text exactly and to cite the original source. If the plagiarism is extensive the article may be rejected and the author's institution/employer notified.
The percentage of plagiarism is calculated by software and also assessed manually.

Plagiarism after publication
If extensive plagiarism is detected after publication, the Journal will contact the author and the paper may be formally removed from the journal.
