The greatly increased number of publications of scientific articles sharply raises the question of plagiarism.The editorial board of the international scientific journal "Science and Life of Kazakhstan" is guided by international standards in the field of scientific ethics.

The editorial board adheres to the position that any forms of plagiarism (full, partial, self-plagiarism) are recognized as factors causing serious damage to scientific exchange.

Plagiarism means intentional attribution of authorship.

In order to counteract plagiarism, all incoming materials are subject to mandatory verification in the system "Strike Plagiarism». The editorial board is aware of the possibility of errors in the automatic calculation of the volume of borrowings in the materials being checked, and therefore the threshold value of originality for the authors is not set. For each article, the decision is made individually after a comprehensive study of the report of the "Strike Plagiarism" system.
