In accordance with its publishing policies, Ekonomik Yaklasim oblige each study that has undergone the Blind Review Process to be detected for plagiarism to protect the integrity of the study. Therefore, both Turkish and English copies of the study are detected for plagiarism.
The plagiarism detection is done by Turnitin and iThenticate softwares. The matches found in each study after plagiarism detection are analysed in detail and those matches with correct reference and cross-reference are sorted. In the next step, the mistakes in the remaining matches are determined and reported to the editorial board. The board, then, makes a final decision in the light of the plagiarism detection report. The author may be asked to correct the mistakes listed in the report or the study may be returned to the author.
