Publication ethics

Publication ethics and the statement of abuse of official position

All submitted articles undergo a rigorous review process by at least two international reviewers who are experts in the field of the specific article.

Factors considered in the review are relevance, sonority, relevance, originality, readability, and language.

Possible decisions include acceptance, acceptance with revision, or rejection.

If authors are encouraged to revise and resubmit a submission, there is no guarantee that the revised submission will be accepted.

Rejected articles are not subject to re-review.

Articles may be rejected without review if they are clearly not suitable for publication.

Acceptance of articles is limited by such legal requirements as are in effect at that time regarding defamation, copyright infringement and plagiarism.

Reviewers evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content regardless of the race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.

Employees should not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, other editorial advisors, and the publisher, as appropriate.

Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Judges should clearly express their opinion with supporting arguments.

Peer review helps the publisher in making editorial decisions, and through editorial communications with the experts of the Scientific Council and the author, it can also help the author to improve the article.

Manuscripts received for review are treated as confidential documents and reviewed by anonymous reviewers.

The reviewer should also bring to the publisher's attention any significant similarity or overlap between the manuscript and any other published work of which he is personally aware.

Authors of contributions and studies must present an accurate report on the work performed, as well as an objective discussion of its significance.

The article should contain enough detail and references to allow others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are not acceptable.

Authors must ensure that they have written entirely original work. If authors have used the work and/or words of others, they must ensure that this has been properly cited or quoted.

Submitting the same manuscript to more than one publication simultaneously is unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.

Authorship should be limited to those who made a significant contribution to the conception, design, performance, or interpretation of the research presented.

All sources of financial support for the project must be disclosed.
