Ethics of publications


Regulations on publishing ethics

1. Responsibility and duties of the Editorial Board.
The decision on the acceptance of articles to the Editorial Board. The Editorial Board of the Journal reserves the right to accept articles for publication or to refuse the author’s publication. When deciding whether to accept or reject an article, the Editorial Board is guided by the Journal’s policy (compliance with scientific specialization), the basic requirements for publications, and so on. The Editorial Board has the right to reject/return the article for revision if it does not meet the requirements or accept it for publication unless there are any remarks.

Impartiality.
The Editorial Board accepts scientific works solely based on the content and correctness of their execution regardless of race, sex, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, political views, ethnicity, citizenship, etc.

Confidentiality.
The Editorial Board does not disclose information regarding the acceptance or rejection of the article by anyone other than the author(s), co-author(s), reviewers; as well as personal data of authors.

Conflict of interest.
The Editorial Board of the Journal is governed by the Provision on the Refusal to Publish Scientific Articles (Committee of Publication Ethics) when it comes to rejecting an article or correcting an already printed paper. Unpublished materials in an article that has been accepted are not used by members of the Editorial Board for their own research without reference to the author of an already published work. Interesting and useful information from the submitted articles can be used only for familiarization and not used in their own interests. Advertising, reprinting, and other manipulations do not affect the decisions of members of the Editorial Board to accept articles. The Editorial Board of the Journal is obliged to carry out technical, scientific, linguistic editing of accepted articles. The Editorial Board is committed to collaborating and interacting with potential and actual authors of articles, providing them with the necessary assistance and answering their questions.


2. Responsibility and duties of reviewers.

Participation in making editorial decisions.
The reviewer assists the Editorial Board in deciding whether or not to publish an article. In addition, the reviewer helps the author in correcting and improving his/her work.

Confidentiality.
Any scientific work subject to review is considered as a confidential document that is not subject to discussion with third parties.

Objectivity.
Reviewing is always carried out objectively. Personal criticism of the authors is unacceptable. Reviewers should express their views clearly with constructive remarks and tips.

Confirmation of scientific sources.
Reviewers should indicate sources, which authors were not mentioned in the work. Any scientific data or judgments previously discovered by other authors must necessarily contain references to the work of the author/authors. Reviewers should also check the article on plagiarism and inform the members of the Editorial Board about its availability.

Conflict of interest.
Unpublished materials in the article submitted to the review cannot be used by reviewers for their own research without reference to the author of an already published work. Interesting and useful information from the submitted articles can be used only for familiarization and not used in their own interests.


3. Responsibility and duties of authors.

Reports on the reliability of information.
The authors, presenting their research results in the article, must present them in accordance with the requirements for drawing up articles in a clear sequence. Articles should contain a description of the main study and necessarily additional data and links to other works that were used to conduct the study. The presence of false or inaccurate data is unacceptable and is considered to be a violation of publication ethics.

Authenticity and plagiarism.
The authors submitting their articles to the Editorial Board should ensure the reliability of the data presented in their work. In the case of the use of data from other scholars, the authors of the articles should refer to their research in the list of used literature.

Multiple publication of one article.
Authors are not allowed to submit an article for publication that has already been published.

Confirmation of scientific sources.
The authors should indicate (cite) the publication, the data of which was used during the research and the writing of a scientific article.

Authorship of the article.
Co-authors of the article are those who have made a significant contribution to conducting the research, to which the article is devoted. All co-authors must be familiar with and agree with the final version of the publication. All co-authors of the article should be indicated before submitting the work to the Editorial Board.

Mistakes in published works.
If the author of the article finds a significant mistake or inaccuracy in his already published work, he or she should inform the editor or the executive secretary of the Journal in order to find an appropriate solution to this problem (reprinting the journal or publishing the corresponding corrections in another journal). During the entire period of the existence of the Journal, no complaints about abuse of office have been filed at the Editorial Board. All issues related to the revision of articles are solved personally and openly by the authors and, as a rule, do not have significant contradictions. There were never any complaints to the Editorial Board regarding the editing of scientific works (technical, scientific, linguistic, etc.) from the authors of the articles.
