who can report plagiarism?

If i saw several paragraphs in a paper similar to the paragraphs of other paper. Can i report plagiarism to editor in chief of journal?. Or only the authors of the plagiarized paper can report this ?

How do you mean, """similar to the paragraphs"? Do not confuse Form with Content.

of relevant cases, such as the Einstein-Maxwell [21] and Einstein-Klein-Gordon system [22, 23, 24, 25], for higher derivative gravity [26, 27, 28], f(R)-theories of gravity [29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35], Hoˇrava-aether gravity [36, 37], polytropic spheres [38, 39, 40], among many others. In this respect, the simplest practical application of the MGD-decoupling consists in extending known isotropic and physically acceptable interior solutions for spherically symmetric self-gravitating systems into the anisotropic domain, at the same time preserving physical acceptability, which represents a highly non-trivial problem [41] (for obtaining anisotropic solutions in a generic way, see for instance Ref. [42, 43, 44]).

By using the MGD-decoupling approach, we presented in detail how to extend interior isotropic solutions for self-gravitating systems in order to include anisotropic (but still spherically symmetric) gravitational sources. For this purpose, we showed that the Einstein field equations for a static and spherically symmetric self-gravitating system in Eq. (2.6)-(2.8) can be decoupled in two sectors, namely: the isotropic sector corresponding to a perfect fluid Tˆ µν shown in Eq. (3.8)-(3.10), and the sector described by quasi-Einstein field equations associated with an anisotropic source θµν shown in Eqs. (3.12)-(3.14). These two sectors must interact only gravitationally, without direct exchange of energy-momentum.

Using the MGD decoupling, it was shown in detail how to extend an interior isotropic solution for a static and spherically symmetric self-gravitating system in order to include an additional gravitational source. For this purpose, it was shown that the Einstein’s field equations in eqs. (6)–(8) can be decoupled in a sector for a perfect fluid Ψ(m) μν shown in eqs. (13)–(15), and the sector describe by the equations associated with the additional gravitational source Φμν shown in eqs. (16)–(18). There is only gravitational interacction between these two sectors, and there is not exchange of energy momentum between them.

The matching conditions at the stellar surface were then studied in detail for an outer Schwarzschild space-time. In particular, the continuity of the second fundamental form in Eq. (4.15) 16 was shown to yield the important result that the effective radial pressure ˜pR = 0. The effective pressure (2.11) contains both the isotropic pressure of the undeformed matter source Tˆ µν and the inner geometric deformation f ∗ (r) induced by the energy-momentum θµν.

Also, the single author of the second paper has the same affiliation as one of the authors of the first. It may be prudent to inform him of this.

“Ruderman [7] about more realistic stellar models show that the nuclear matter may be anisotropic at least in certain very high density ranges (ρ > 1017 kg/m3), where the nuclear interactions must be treated relativistically”

And other preprint https://arxiv.org/abs/1805.00592 , with date 2-5 says:

Also the studies of Ruderman about more realistic stellar models show that the nuclear matter may be anisotropic at least in certain very high density ranges (ρ > 1015g/cm3), where the nuclear interactions must treated relativistically [5].

Most of the plagiarism I've caught has been on the student side, usually well before material is submitted for publication. (I mentor lots of student research, and in spite of ample training and care, when the crunch of deadlines approach, plagairism occurs about 10% of the time.) A few years back, I did catch a case where a paper of mine had been copied, both the exact method (slightly different system) as well as part of the method section. Eventually a Corigendum was published here:

http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/0256-307X/27/8/089902/pdf

My original paper can be found here:

http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/0256-307X/27/8/089902/pdf

The paper from Chinese Physics Letters which copied my method without attribution is here:

http://cpl.iphy.ac.cn/EN/article/downloadArticleFile.do?attachType=PDF&id=37803

I didn't notice the issue and move toward corrective action until 6 years or so after the other paper was published. It would have been nice had someone brought it to the journal editors' attention sooner.

My fear is the following ,

Furthermore of the sopposed plagiarisms above mentioned, there is more supposed plagiarism from one preprint whose owned is mine. Currently i have submitted this preprint to one journal.

Should be stopped the revision of my paper if i inform to the editors about all the supposed plagiarisms (included my case)?

Is your preprint dated before the other paper?

But my fears is that the editor stop the revision of my submission whereas it is determined the supposed plagiarism
