Statement about Plagiarism

Posted: Jun 21, 2013

Dear Authors and Readers,

In order to prevent possible instances of plagiarism, RAA will check all incoming articles that are submitted with commercial software designed to detect plagiarism. We will begin to implement this policy immediately. We will contact the author of an article that shows significant amounts of plagiarism. The communications with authors regarding the amount and type of plagiarism will be handled on a case-by-case basis, under the instruction of the responsible scientific editor. We believe that implementing this policy will improve the quality and reliability of the articles published by RAA.
