Principles of Professional Ethics in the Activities of

Editor and Publisher

 

In his/her activity, the editor is responsible for the publication of author’s works, and therefore is guided by the following fundamental principles:

- when making a decision to publish, the editor of a scientific journal is guided by the reliability of data presentation and the scientific significance of the work in question;

- the editor should evaluate the intellectual content of manuscripts regardless of the authors' race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, origin, nationality, social status, or political preferences;

- unpublished data obtained from submitted manuscripts should not be used for personal purposes or shared with third parties without the written consent of the author. Information or ideas obtained during editing related to possible benefits should be kept confidential and not used for personal gain;

- the editor should not allow information to be published if there is sufficient reason to believe that it is plagiarized;

- the editor together with the publisher should not leave any claims unanswered concerning the reviewed manuscripts or published materials, and in case of a conflict situation take all necessary measures to restore the violated rights.

 

Ethical Principles in the Activity of a Reviewer

 

The reviewer carries out scientific expertise of author’s materials, therefore his/her actions should be unbiased and adhere the following principles:

- the manuscript received for review is to be treated as a confidential document, which must not be passed for review or discussion to third parties not authorized by the editorial office;

- the reviewer is obliged to give an objective and reasoned assessment of the presented research results. Personal criticism of the author is unacceptable;

- unpublished data obtained from manuscripts submitted for review should not be used by the reviewer for personal purposes;

- a reviewer who, in his/her opinion, is not qualified enough to evaluate the manuscript or cannot be objective, for example, in case of a conflict of interest with the author or an organization, should inform the editor about it with a request to exclude him/her from the process of reviewing this manuscript.

 

Principles the Author of Scientific Publications Should Guide

 

An author is defined as a researcher who has made a substantial intellectual contribution to the published work and has presented the results of his/her research. In the case of co-authorship, each author is responsible for at least one component of the work and should be aware of the contribution of others. He should have full confidence in the qualifications and professionalism of his co-authors.

All persons listed as authors must meet the definition of authorship. Each author’s participation in the work must be sufficiently substantial, as each author is publicly responsible for its respective component.

Authors may enter into separate, additional contractual agreements to disseminate the published work (e.g., place it in a university (affiliated) repository or publish it in a book), with acknowledgement of its original publication in this journal.

All persons related to the work but who do not meet the criteria for authorship are listed in the Acknowledgements/ Acknowledgements section (persons who helped in planning the research, selecting material and analyzing it, preparing the manuscript for printing, etc.).

The author has no right to send the same text to different editors. If previously published information is used in the article, the author is obliged to indicate its source, and at the request of the editor to provide a copy of the quoted material.

The author should confirm that his/her article is original and indicate the sources of the cited information.

At the time of article submission, it should be stated whether artificial intelligence (AI) or AI-based technologies were used in the preparation of the manuscript or part of it. In a separate section of the manuscript (which may be a methods section), authors should clearly describe how AI was used in the research and/or preparation of the manuscript. This may include the use of LLMs, chat bots (such as ChatGPT) and image creators. Artificial intelligence or AI-enabled technologies are not considered as authors and should not be listed as authors or co-authors in the manuscript. Similarly, they should not be listed as authors or co-authors in references.

The author must declare a potential conflict of interest (e.g., circumstances that, from his point of view, may influence the publication process).

If a significant error in publication is discovered, the author is obliged to inform the editor immediately. During the preparation of the material for publication, the author is obliged to co-operate with the editor and publisher and, if necessary, to make appropriate changes to the text.

The author assumes full responsibility for possible plagiarism of text, figures and other materials. Any copyright infringement will be considered according to the criteria proposed by COPE.

The author (or team of authors) realizes that he/she bears the initial responsibility for the novelty and reliability of the results of the scientific research, and complies with the following principles:

- the authors of the article must provide reliable results of the research conducted. Deliberately erroneous or falsified statements are unacceptable;

- the authors must guarantee that the research results stated in the submitted manuscript are completely original. Borrowed fragments or statements should be formalized with obligatory indication of the author and primary source. Excessive borrowing, as well as plagiarism in any form, including unattributed quotations, paraphrasing or appropriation of the results of others’ research is unethical and unacceptable;

- the contributions of all individuals who have influenced the research in one way or another should be recognized, in particular, the paper should provide references to the papers that were important in the conduct of the research;

- authors should not submit to the journal a manuscript that has been sent to another journal and is under review, or an article that has already been published in another journal;

- the co-authors of the article should include all persons who have made a significant contribution to the research. Among the co-authors it is inadmissible to specify persons who did not participate in the research;

- if the author discovers significant errors or inaccuracies in the article at the stage of its review or after its publication, he/she should notify the editorial board of the journal as soon as possible.

 

Conflict of Interest

 

A conflict of interest arises when an author (or the institution he/she works for), reviewer, editor, or any participant of the publication process has financial or private interests (personal relationships, academic competition, intellectual disagreements, etc.) that may adversely affect their actions.

Reviewers provide the Editorial Board with information about possible conflicts of interest that could influence their opinion on the manuscript. If there is such a danger, they refrain from reviewing this material. Reviewers may not use the results of the work under review for their own interests before its publication.

All participants of the process of preparing an article for publication are required to disclose any relationships that could be considered a potential source of conflict of interest.

Code of Ethics for Scientific Publications

 

The Code of Ethics for Scholarly Publishing unites and discloses the general principles and rules that should guide the participants of the process of scholarly publishing: authors, reviewers, editors, publishers, distributors and readers in their relationship.

 

Key Terms:

 

Ethics of scientific publications is a system of norms of professional behaviour in the relationship between authors, reviewers, editors, publishers and readers in the process of creation, dissemination and use of scientific publications.

Editor is a representative of a scientific journal or publishing house who prepares materials for publication and communicates with authors and readers of scientific publications.

Author is a person or a group of persons (the collective of authors) involved in the creation of publication of scientific research results.

Reviewer is an expert acting on behalf of a scientific journal or publishing house and conducting scientific expertise of the author’s materials to determine the possibility of their publication.

Publisher is a legal entity or an individual carrying out the publication of a scientific publication.

Reader is any person who has reviewed the published materials.

Plagiarism is intentional appropriation of authorship of the work of science or art, another’s ideas or inventions. Plagiarism may be considered a violation of copyright and patent laws and as such may subject to legal liability.

 

 

Principles of Professional Ethics in the Activities of

Editor and Publisher

 

In his/her activity, the editor is responsible for the publication of author’s works, and therefore is guided by the following fundamental principles:

- when making a decision to publish, the editor of a scientific journal is guided by the reliability of data presentation and the scientific significance of the work in question;

- the editor should evaluate the intellectual content of manuscripts regardless of the authors' race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, origin, nationality, social status, or political preferences;

- unpublished data obtained from submitted manuscripts should not be used for personal purposes or shared with third parties without the written consent of the author. Information or ideas obtained during editing related to possible benefits should be kept confidential and not used for personal gain;

- the editor should not allow information to be published if there is sufficient reason to believe that it is plagiarized;

- the editor together with the publisher should not leave any claims unanswered concerning the reviewed manuscripts or published materials, and in case of a conflict situation take all necessary measures to restore the violated rights.

 

Ethical Principles in the Activity of a Reviewer

 

The reviewer carries out scientific expertise of author’s materials, therefore his/her actions should be unbiased and adhere the following principles:

- the manuscript received for review is to be treated as a confidential document, which must not be passed for review or discussion to third parties not authorized by the editorial office;

- the reviewer is obliged to give an objective and reasoned assessment of the presented research results. Personal criticism of the author is unacceptable;

- unpublished data obtained from manuscripts submitted for review should not be used by the reviewer for personal purposes;

- a reviewer who, in his/her opinion, is not qualified enough to evaluate the manuscript or cannot be objective, for example, in case of a conflict of interest with the author or an organization, should inform the editor about it with a request to exclude him/her from the process of reviewing this manuscript.

 

Principles the Author of Scientific Publications Should Guide

 

An author is defined as a researcher who has made a substantial intellectual contribution to the published work and has presented the results of his/her research. In the case of co-authorship, each author is responsible for at least one component of the work and should be aware of the contribution of others. He should have full confidence in the qualifications and professionalism of his co-authors.

All persons listed as authors must meet the definition of authorship. Each author’s participation in the work must be sufficiently substantial, as each author is publicly responsible for its respective component.

Authors may enter into separate, additional contractual agreements to disseminate the published work (e.g., place it in a university (affiliated) repository or publish it in a book), with acknowledgement of its original publication in this journal.

All persons related to the work but who do not meet the criteria for authorship are listed in the Acknowledgements/ Acknowledgements section (persons who helped in planning the research, selecting material and analyzing it, preparing the manuscript for printing, etc.).

The author has no right to send the same text to different editors. If previously published information is used in the article, the author is obliged to indicate its source, and at the request of the editor to provide a copy of the quoted material.

The author should confirm that his/her article is original and indicate the sources of the cited information.

At the time of article submission, it should be stated whether artificial intelligence (AI) or AI-based technologies were used in the preparation of the manuscript or part of it. In a separate section of the manuscript (which may be a methods section), authors should clearly describe how AI was used in the research and/or preparation of the manuscript. This may include the use of LLMs, chat bots (such as ChatGPT) and image creators. Artificial intelligence or AI-enabled technologies are not considered as authors and should not be listed as authors or co-authors in the manuscript. Similarly, they should not be listed as authors or co-authors in references.

The author must declare a potential conflict of interest (e.g., circumstances that, from his point of view, may influence the publication process).

If a significant error in publication is discovered, the author is obliged to inform the editor immediately. During the preparation of the material for publication, the author is obliged to co-operate with the editor and publisher and, if necessary, to make appropriate changes to the text.

The author assumes full responsibility for possible plagiarism of text, figures and other materials. Any copyright infringement will be considered according to the criteria proposed by COPE.

The author (or team of authors) realizes that he/she bears the initial responsibility for the novelty and reliability of the results of the scientific research, and complies with the following principles:

- the authors of the article must provide reliable results of the research conducted. Deliberately erroneous or falsified statements are unacceptable;

- the authors must guarantee that the research results stated in the submitted manuscript are completely original. Borrowed fragments or statements should be formalized with obligatory indication of the author and primary source. Excessive borrowing, as well as plagiarism in any form, including unattributed quotations, paraphrasing or appropriation of the results of others’ research is unethical and unacceptable;

- the contributions of all individuals who have influenced the research in one way or another should be recognized, in particular, the paper should provide references to the papers that were important in the conduct of the research;

- authors should not submit to the journal a manuscript that has been sent to another journal and is under review, or an article that has already been published in another journal;

- the co-authors of the article should include all persons who have made a significant contribution to the research. Among the co-authors it is inadmissible to specify persons who did not participate in the research;

- if the author discovers significant errors or inaccuracies in the article at the stage of its review or after its publication, he/she should notify the editorial board of the journal as soon as possible.

 

Conflict of Interest

 

A conflict of interest arises when an author (or the institution he/she works for), reviewer, editor, or any participant of the publication process has financial or private interests (personal relationships, academic competition, intellectual disagreements, etc.) that may adversely affect their actions.

Reviewers provide the Editorial Board with information about possible conflicts of interest that could influence their opinion on the manuscript. If there is such a danger, they refrain from reviewing this material. Reviewers may not use the results of the work under review for their own interests before its publication.

All participants of the process of preparing an article for publication are required to disclose any relationships that could be considered a potential source of conflict of interest.
