SoSyM Policy Statement on Plagiarism
Papers submitted to SoSyM must not be simultaneously submitted as is, in an extended form, or in a shortened form to other journals or conferences. Authors can submit extended forms of papers that have previously appeared in conference proceedings. Such submissions must clearly state that the paper has been published elsewhere, must reference the paper in the submission, and must clearly state how the paper significantly extends the published version (please see also SoSyM Publication Quality Guidelines below).
The SoSyM editors-in-chief and the editorial board will not under any circumstance publish plagiarized material. For actions that will be taken if reviewers or editors recognize a case of plagiarism please see Process for Handling Cases of Plagiarism.
SoSyM Publication Quality Guidelines (for regular and theme issue papers)
A SoSyM paper does not have to contain a deep formal empirical study, but it must provide some form of validation of the claims made in the paper. This can come in many forms and combinations, such as an empirical study on the performance or a controlled experiment of some tool approach related to the operational function compared to other similar tools, a human-based empirical evaluation or deep user survey that assesses a new modeling approach and its benefits toward users, a very detailed case study on some real system that provides argumentation and demonstration of the benefits of a modeling technique.
Manuscripts with plagiarized content will not be published.
Manuscripts in which at least 75% of the content appears in a non-journal publication or in which at least 40% appears in a journal publication will not be published.
Manuscripts that have been submitted to or are under review at or have been accepted for publication by another publisher will not be published.
