Ethical principle

The author of a scientific article is a person who participated (to a large extent-in the presence of several authors) in the creation of the work, primarily in the development of its concept, in the scientific design, collection of raw materials, their analysis and interpretation of the results. In case of joint writing of the article all listed co-authors should meet these criteria. The consent for publication of all authors involved in the writing of the work is mandatory.

The authors guarantee that:

  • this scientific work is original (has not been published previously in other publications) and reliable (does
    not contain false or falsified statements);
  • borrowed fragments or provisions have been properly decorated (indication of the author and the original source is required). Excessive borrowing and any form of plagiarism (unformed quotes, paraphrasing or attributing the results of other people’s research, self-citation without specifying the source) is unethical and unacceptable;
  • the submitted manuscript is not under consideration in other editions;
  • all possible conflicts related to copyright and the publication of these materials have been resolved;
  • the contribution of all participants who have influenced the course of the study in one way or another should be reflected accordingly (the paper provides links to the research that was important when writing the article);
  • all persons who have made a significant contribution to the creation of the work are listed as co-authors (the article provides links to sources of works that had an impact on the research and design of the article);
  • does not violate any existing copyright; in case of detection of such violations, damages will be reimbursed to the publisher.

If the author finds significant errors or inaccuracies in the article at the stage of its consideration or after its publication, he must promptly notify the editorial Board.
