Plagiarism is defined as presenting another person’s work as one’s own work. Presentation includes copying or reproducing it without the acknowledgement of the source.
Plagiarism could be intentional (dishonest plagiarism) or non-intentional (negligent plagiarism).
Authors should note that:
Colombia Médica uses the licensed version of Plagiarism Detection Software to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. Plagiarism Detection Software checks content against a database of periodicals, the Internet, and a comprehensive article database. It generates a similarity report, highlighting the percentage of overlap between the uploaded article and the published material. Any instance of content overlap is further scrutinized for suspected plagiarism according to the publisher’s Editorial Policies. Colombia Médica allows an overall similarity of 20% for a manuscript to be considered for publication.
