This journal is being committed to high standards of research and publication ethics.

The definition of “plagiarize”, according to the Merriam-Webster (2012) online dictionary and (2012), is “to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source.” Sometimes that “existing source” is a work written by another scholar, and sometimes it is a work written by the author him-/herself. The latter circumstance constitutes self-plagiarism. Plagiarism most often takes the form of verbatim copying of passages from an existing source, but without the quotation marks and page numbers needed to convey proper attribution to the reader. However, plagiarism can also take the form of “close copying”, wherein passages are taken almost verbatim from elsewhere but changed slightly (Wager, 2011) (COLQUITT, 2012, p. 749).
