Ethical principles binding on The Editors
The decision to publish the article is made by the Editor-in-Chief, based on the received reviews and after consultation with both, the Editorial Committee and with Language Editors. Moreover, the Editors are required to meet the following requirements:
The Editorial Committee does not disclose data of submitted articles to unauthorized persons. In addition, the Editors do not disclose the identity of the Authors to the Reviewers and the identity of the Reviewers to the Authors. Manuscripts submitted to the Editors may not be used in their own research without the written consent of the Authors.
The publication or rejection of a given text is determined solely by the content of the submitted manuscript and its consistency with the journal’s profile. Therefore, aspects such as Author’s nationality, ethnicity, gender, religion or political beliefs are not taken into account.
3. Conflict of interest
The Editorial Committee may not appoint as Reviewers persons who are in a conflict of interest with the Authors, arising from competition, cooperation, or other relationships either with the Authors, or with the institution associated with the submitted manuscript.
The Editor-in-Chief and the Editorial Committee take care of maintaining scientific reliability and high substantive level of published articles. In the case of an alleged violation of ethical standards by the Author, the Editors are obliged to check the validity of such allegations.
In cases of proven scientific misconduct (e.g. plagiarism, duplicate or multiple publication, guest authorship, ghostwriting), the Editor-in-Chief shall be obliged to:
a. reject the text;
b. inform the Author about the Editorial Committee’s actions;
c. inform the Reviewer;
d. contact the institution employing the Author.
