Editorial CSIC 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.

Through Similarity Check, we use the  iThenticate software  to detect coincidences and similarities between the texts submitted for evaluation and those previously published in other sources.

By depositing all our content in the Similarity Check database we allow other editors to compare their texts under evaluation with those that Editorial CSIC has previously published.

For detailed information about our authorship, originality and plagiarism policy, see the  Good Practices Guide section .
