Statement on Plagiarism

The University of Oxford describes the act pf plagiarism as “presenting someone else’s work or ideas as your own, with or without their consent, by incorporating it into your work without full acknowledgement. All published and unpublished material, whether in manuscript, printed or electronic form, is covered under this definition. Plagiarism may be intentional or reckless, or unintentional. Under the regulations for examinations, intentional or reckless plagiarism is a disciplinary offence.” (

Plagiarism is serious, unethical and dishonest. Therefore, the German Journal of Sports Medicine declines every type of plagiarism fully. The GJSM reserves the right to initiate steps to detect, prevent and pursue acts of plagiarism. Further tools will be used.
