Publication ethics is a system of professional behavior norms that concern the relations of publishers authors, reviewers and editors when making scientific publications.

These norms are arranged on the basis of the recommendations of the Committee on Publication Ethics, the Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors, the regulations of Chapter 70 Copyright of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation, the international publishing standards.

Gramota Publishers, LLC undertakes to follow ethical principles of scientific publications in its activity and requires their observance from all the participants of publishing process.

Ethical principles for authors of scientific publications

Author (authors group) realizes that he (they) is responsible for the originality and reliability of scientific research results and should follow the principles:

  • Author of papers should present reliable scientific results of his conducted research. The results should have scientific novelty. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.

  • Authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if authors have used the work and/or words of others it should be appropriately cited or quoted. Plagiarism takes many forms: from passing off anothers paper as authors own paper to copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of anothers paper (without attribution), to claiming results from research conducted by others. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.

  • Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

  • Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is also unacceptable.

  • Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have not made significant contributions to the research work should not be listed as co-authors.

  • When author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his own published work, it is authors obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with editor to retract or correct the paper.

Ethical principles for editors and publishers

Editor as a publishers representative prepares the materials for the publication and is responsible for the promulgation of authors works, that is why he should follow the given basic principles:

  • While making a decision about publication the scientific journal editor is guided by data presentation authenticity and scientific significance of the considered work.

  • Editors should evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship or political philosophy of authors.

  • Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in editors own research or shared with other persons concerned without the express of written consent by author.

  • Information or ideas received during editing and connected with possible advantages must be preserved confidential and must not be used for the purpose of self-profit.

  • Editor should not accept a paper for publication if there is enough reason to believe that it is an object of plagiarism.

  • Editors of the journal should never conduct any practice that obliges authors to cite their journal as an implied or explicit condition of acceptance for publication.

  • Editor of the journal should take reasonable responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper. Every reported act of unethical publishing behaviour must be looked into.

Ethical principles for reviewers

Reviewer as an expert on behalf of publishers exercises scientific examining of authors papers to determine a possibility to publish these papers in the journals of publishers. So reviewing should be unbiased and conducted according to the following principles:

  • Any manuscripts received for reviewing must be treated as confidential documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except authorized by the editorial board. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage.

  • Reviewing should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of author is inappropriate. Experts should express their views clearly and with supporting arguments.

  • Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in reviewers own research without the express of written consent by author. Such materials must also be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage.

  • If reviewer has not enough qualification or has conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of authors or institutions related to a manuscript under review he should report this information to editor and ask to exclude him from reviewing this manuscript.
