The scientific journal "Computer Systems and Networks" accepts for publication only original articles that have not been published before.
The scientific journal "Computer Systems and Networks" uses software to detect text loanwords in submitted manuscripts: Detector Plagiarist, Antiplagiat, eTXT. Manuscripts in which plagiarism or textual loanwords without references to the original source are found are rejected by the editorial board before the article is published in a scientific journal.
Plagiarism before publication

If plagiarism or textual loanwords are detected by the editors or reviewers at any stage before publication of the manuscript, the author(s) are warned about the need to rewrite the text or make a reference to the original source.
Plagiarism check policy
