Decision of the Editorial Board
Seeing the Decision of the Administration Council of Babeș-Bolyai University no. 15823/14.11.2022, the editorial board of the journal Criminal Law Writings decides:
The quality control of the papers published in Criminal Law Writings rests entirely with the editorial board, which undertakes the obligation to publish only scientifically appropriate studies and articles.
Each document submitted for publication is subject to a similarity check, to detect any unlawful use of texts, and to avoid the publication of plagiarized and self-plagiarized works.
The similarity report is produced automatically, through the analysis of the texts by specialized software, made available to the editorial board of Criminal Law Writings by Babeș-Bolyai University. The report, generated by the mentioned software, is archived one year from the date of its issue.
The conditions, terms, and procedure for verifying the texts submitted for publication are those provided in the Regulations for doctoral studies of Babeș-Bolyai University, also used to calculate the similarity ratio for doctoral theses.
The elements that the used software founds to be similar are verified, regardless of their percentage, by the editorial staff of Criminal Law Writings. If it is concluded that the material is plagiarized or self-plagiarized, its publication is rejected and the author and the institution to which it belongs are notified.
To determine plagiarism or self-plagiarism, the editorial office of Criminal Law Writings takes into consideration the criteria included in the legal definition of these deviations in Article 4 para. (1) letters d) and e) from Law no. 206/2004.
