  • Authors must ensure that the results of the study presented in the submitted manuscript are completely original. Borrowed fragments or statements must be made with the obligatory indication of the author and the original source.
  • Excessive borrowing, as well as plagiarism in any form, including unquoted quotes, paraphrasing or misappropriation of research rights, is unethical and unacceptable.
  • The contribution of all those who in one way or another influenced the course of the study should be recognized, in particular, the manuscript should include references to the work that was relevant to the study.
  • Authors should not submit to the journal a manuscript that has been submitted to another journal and is under consideration, as well as a manuscript that has already been published in another journal.

We promise to take appropriate measures, as well as to pay close attention to any information provided to us that will indicate unethical behavior of a particular author. Detection of ethical violations entails a refusal to publish.
Moreover, we will withdraw previous manuscripts and publicly disclose unethical conduct if we have irrefutable evidence of such acts. If the manuscript is found to be openly defamatory, infringing the law or copyright law, the editors consider themselves obliged to remove it from the website and from the database on the Internet. Such extreme measures can be applied only with maximum openness and publicity.
