Ethical principles

The journal follows the ethical principles based on the guidelines established by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). The ways of editorial conduct in various cases of malpractice are presented in the attached document.

The Author’s submission of the text means that it is has not been submitted in other journals. To confirm that Author is requested to send an appropriate document.

In line with the adopted ethical principles only those persons who actually contributed to creation of the text can be deemed as its authors. In case of detecting the practices that go against the ethical rules, the Editors reserve the right to reveal such malpractices. It is unacceptable to falsely claim the authorship of someone else’s texts, as well as citing and quoting fragments without providing accurate sources. In cases of plagiarism detection, information about that malpractice may appear on the journal’s pages.

Each article admitted for publication is checked for plagiarism by use of antiplagiarism software (iThenticate). As a result of anitplagiarism check, the in-depth report is received containing information on borrowings detected in the analyzed text.
