Plagiarism Violations 

Academic integrity is a prioritized concern of Recollection Historica; we have a highly rigorous discipline in terms of violation of academic integrity. We evaluate each citation of every paper for adherence in content, degree, and tone to a reliable source. If any form of plagiarism or fabrication of information is found in the submitted work, the work will be returned immediately, and the author will be blacklisted by the journal.


The only exception is unintended falsification; if the author reasonably explains the situation, the reviewing committee will consider removing the author from the blacklist. If published works are subsequently found to be plagiarized or include falsified or fabricated information, the work will be removed from the electronic journal, and the author will be blacklisted by the journal and the fellowship.
