Anti-plagiarism Policies

The arbitration coordination uses the plagiarism control tool (proposed by the Tec-Digital platform of the Costa Rica Institute of Technology which is based on the Turnitin package for its searches) Upon initially receiving the proposal for evaluation. If more than 25% similarity is obtained, the author or authors are requested to clarify this coincidence; in case of persisting, the proposal is rejected inmediately.

In addition, evaluators are encouraged to use plagiarism detection sites (, during the review process.
