Publication Ethics


Ethical standards in the field of publications need to ensure high quality scientific publications, to ensure the credibility of the research by the society and the recognition of copyright works in the scientific community. To avoid:

-fabricating and falsifying data (fabrication of data means that the researcher without any work, invented data falsification-substitution of data obtained during the experiment);

-plagiarism in scientific texts (under plagiarism means using someone else's ideas and works, copy texts or their fragments without specifying source, infraction citations);

-simultaneous presentation in several magazines (consideration of manuscripts-work editors and reviewers);

-duplication of publication (posting the same or similar texts in manuscript several periodicals harms the reputation of the academic and journals);

-non-compliance of copyrights of their sponsors-supervisor or colleagues (all who contributed to the study should be identified, including students and laboratory technicians);

-incorrect list of authors (if the article is written in co-authorship, then each author should be related to the process of preparing the article, have scientific interests in this field).


In cases of violation of publication ethics, the article may be recalled at any stage of the preparation and publication of the article.

If the violation is detected after publication, then retraction of articles is carried out by decision of the editorial board unilaterally.
