Journal Ethics

Duties of editors

Editors should work actively to improve the quality of the journal. Editors are responsible for deciding which of the submitted manuscript should be published. The editors are guided by the policy of the International Editorial Board of the journal and are limited by the current legislation. Editors evaluate manuscripts according to their intellectual content, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political orientation of the authors. Editors and Editorial staff should not disclose any information about submitted manuscripts to anyone other than the relevant author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other members of the editorial board and the publisher. Unpublished materials should not be used by editors without the written consent of the author. Responsibilities are based on the guidelines and standards developed by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and are applied at each stage of the manuscript processing.

Duties of Reviewers

Expert review helps editors in making editorial decisions and assists the author in improving the manuscript. Any manuscript received for consideration must be considered as a confidential document. Manuscripts should not be shown or discussed with an unauthorized person without the permission of the editor. Feedback should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author's address is considered inappropriate. The reviewer should give arguments to his remarks. The reviewer should draw the editor's attention to a significant similarity or coincidence in the manuscript under review and any other published work. The privileged information or idea should be confidential and not be used for personal interests. Any selected reviewer who feels unskilled in order to consider the research given to him should promptly notify the editor about it. Reviewers should identify relevant published works, to which the author has not made references. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts that may be the cause of a conflict of interest.

Duties of Authors

Authors of original research manuscripts should provide an accurate account of the work performed, as well as an objective discussion of his/her article. Articles should contain references to other works. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements are unacceptable. Typically, authors should not publish articles with the same research in more than one journal, they must ensure that the research they write is original works, and if the authors used the work and/or words of others, they were properly cited or taken in quotation marks. The submitted version is to be processed through the similarity Check System - Antiplagiat. All those who made a significant contribution to the study should be listed as co-authors. Persons who participated in the essential aspects of the research project should be listed on the list of participants. The relevant author should ensure that all co-authors are included in the article and approved the final version of the article, and agreed to submit it to the journal for publication. The author must immediately notify the editor or publisher about a significant error or inaccuracy found in his published work.
