Publication ethics is a system of professional behavior norms that concern the relations of the 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 Declaration of the Association of Science Editors and Publishers (ASEP) “Ethical Principles of Scientific Publications”, the regulations of the current legislation of the Russian Federation concerning copyright, and international publishing standards.

“Gramota” Publishers, LLC is responsible for observing ethical norms as to publication and spread of research results, accepts all the provisions of the Declaration of the ASEP “Ethical Principles of Scientific Publications” and calls all the participants of publishing process to follow these principles.

We ask to report to the editorial staff about cases of unethical behaviour while publishing and spreading research results in the Publishers’ academic journals by .

Ethical Principles for Authors of Scientific Publications

The author (authors’ group) realizes that he (they) is (are) primarily!!! responsible for the originality and reliability of research results that presupposes following the principles mentioned below:

  • The author of papers should present reliable results of their 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’ another’s paper as the author’s own paper to copying or paraphrasing substantial parts of another’s 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.

  • All the authors’ consent to publication is necessary.

  • Authors should not submit a manuscript, which has already been sent to another journal and is being considered, as well as an already published article.

  • When the author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in their own published work or the work being peer-reviewed, it is their obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or the Publishers and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.

Ethical Principles for Editors and Publishers

The editor as the Publishers’ representative prepares materials for publication and is responsible for the promulgation of authors’ works, that is why they should follow the undermentioned basic principles:

  • While making a decision about publication the academic journal editor is guided by the principles of scientific nature, objectivity, professionalism and impartiality.

  • The editor’s interaction with authors is based on the principles of justice, politeness, objectivity, honesty and transparency.

  • Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in the editor’s own research or shared with other persons concerned without the express of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

  • 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.

  • The editor’s obligation is to prevent situations when authors, reviewers or other subjects included in the process of scientific articles publishing manifest signs of unethical behaviour and also to provide retraction of dishonest authors’ publications that contain plagiarism, falsification and fabrication of data from scientific circulation.

  • The editor of the academic 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

The reviewer as an expert on behalf of the Publishers exercises scientific examining of authors’ papers to determine a possibility to publish these papers in the academic journals of the Publishers. So peer-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.

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

  • Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in the reviewer’s own research without express of written consent by the author. Such materials must also be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage.

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