Plagiarism in all its forms and any other type of academic fraud (copying word-by-word of another author’s work without quotation marks and without mentioning the source, paraphrasing the ideas of other author without mentioning these ideas’ paternity, using concepts launched by other author without mentioning their citations; false or forged data etc.) will not be tolerated.

Romanian Journal of Petroleum & Gas Technology (pISSN 2734–5319; ISSN-L 2734–5319; eISSN 2972–0370) strongly condemn such illegal form of copying.
