Publication Ethics

 Our journal complies with the requirements of the International Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), which are available on the COPE website.  Principles of ethics of the author of the scientific publication

  • The author (authors) of the article should provide reliable research results. Deliberately submitting false or falsified data is unacceptable.
  • The author must ensure that the results of the study set out in the submitted manuscript are completely original. The information provided must be formatted with the obligatory indication of the author and source. Plagiarism in any form is unethical and unacceptable. The article should include references to works that were relevant in the study.
  • Authors should not submit for publication a manuscript that was previously submitted to another edition and is currently being reviewed, as well as an article already published in another edition.
  • The co-authors of the article should indicate all persons who have made a significant contribution to the study.
  • If the author finds errors or inaccuracies in the article at the stage of its review or after its publication, it should notify the editorial board as soon as possible.

Principles of editor and publisher ethics

  • When deciding to publish, the editorial board is guided by the accuracy of the submitted data and the scientific significance of the work under consideration.
  • The intellectual content of the manuscripts is judged regardless of the race, gender, sexual orientation, religious views, origin, citizenship, social status or political views of the authors.
  • Unpublished data obtained from submitted manuscripts are not used for personal purposes and are not disclosed to third parties without the written consent of the author. Information from submitted manuscripts remains confidential and is not used for personal gain.
  • The editorial board does not publish the manuscript unless there is reason to believe that it is plagiarism.
  • The editorial board does not leave unanswered the claims concerning the reviewed manuscripts or published materials, and in the event of a conflict situation, takes all necessary measures to restore the violated rights.

Principles of ethics of the reviewer

  • The manuscript received for review is treated as a confidential document that cannot be transmitted for review or discussion to third parties who do not have editorial authority.
  • The reviewer gives an objective and reasoned assessment of the results of the study. The author's personal criticism is unacceptable.
  • Unpublished data obtained from submitted manuscripts are not used by a reviewer for personal use.
  • A reviewer who does not believe that he or she is not sufficiently qualified to evaluate the manuscript, or if it cannot be objective, in particular in the event of a conflict of interest with the author or organization, should advise the editor to exclude him / her from the process of reviewing the manuscript. .
