Crossref Similarity Check logo

European Proceedings is a participant of Simililarity Check, a service offered by CrossRef and powered by iThenticate software. iThenticate is a plagiarism screening service that verifies the originality of written work. iThenticate checks submissions against millions of published, scholarly works, and billions of web content. Authors, researchers and freelancers can also use iThenticate to screen their work before submission by visting

Global, mosaic and verbatim plagiarism are viewed as copying of words, ideas, models, images and/or data from other works, without giving due credit to the original author/s. As such, the EpSBS Editors view all forms of plagiarism/duplicate publication as serious threats to the integrity of the research process. Papers in which plagiarism is detected will be handled on a case by case basis depending on the extent of plagiarism detected.

There may be cases when an original paper is not freely accessible to indexing services due to restrictions by programmers, journals or publishers; in such cases, it may not be possible to detect plagiarism / duplicate publication in a paper.
