Anti-plagiarism Policy

SHILAP Revista de lepidopterología promotes academic and scientific honesty in its publications, therefore texts containing plagiarism are unacceptable.

Plagiarism detection is carried out before sending the article to the reviewers (double blind).

In the event that a similarity report of more than 20% is obtained in a paper, the authors will be informed by e-mail, which will include the full similarity report and the expert's reflections. All of this will be done so that the authors can offer any comments they consider relevant for the journal to be able to determine whether it is a case of behaviour linked to plagiarism or not, and in the first case, the paper will be rejected for evaluation.

SHILAP Revista de lepidopterología is a member of Similarity Check, an initiative launched by Crossref that brings together several publishers in order to protect the originality of the content they publish.

Similarity Check uses iThenticate software to detect matches and similarities between the texts submitted for evaluation and those previously published in other sources.

By depositing all our contents in the Similarity Check database we allow other publishers to compare their texts under evaluation with those previously published by SHILAP Revista de lepidopterología.
