When deciding on the publication the chief editor of the scientific journal is guided by authenticity of the submitted data and the scientific significance of the reviewed work.

An editor and members should give unbiased consideration to all manuscripts offered for publication, judging each on its merits without regard to race, religion, nationality, sex, seniority, or institutional affiliation of the author(s).

The editor and members of the editorial team should not disclose information about a manuscript under consideration to anyone other than those from whom professional advice is sought. After a decision the editor may disclose manuscript titles and authors’ names of papers that have been accepted for publication.

An editor should consider manuscripts submitted for publication with all reasonable speed and attention.

The sole responsibility for acceptance or rejection of a manuscript rests with the editor. Manuscripts may be rejected without review if considered inappropriate for the journal.

Editorial responsibility and authority for any manuscript authored by an editor and submitted to the editor’s journal should be delegated to some other qualified person. Editorial consideration of the manuscript in any way or form by the author-editor would constitute a conflict of interest.

Unpublished information, or interpretations disclosed in a submitted manuscript should not be used in an editor’s own research except with the consent of the author. When a manuscript is so closely related to the research of an editor as to create a conflict of interest, the editor should arrange for some other qualified person to take editorial responsibility for that manuscript.

The chief editor together with the publisher should not leave unanswered claims relating to the reviewed manuscripts or published materials.

Present in the journal only the original manuscript. Do not submit to the journal articles that have been sent to another journal and are now pending review, as well as articles published previously in another journal. Failure to observe this principle is regarded as gross misconduct of publication ethics and gives reason for removing the article from the review. If elements of the manuscript were previously published in another article, the authors are obliged to refer to their earlier work and specify how the new work is significantly different from the previous one. Verbatim copying of own work and its paraphrasing is unacceptable, it can only be used as a basis for new conclusions.

An author should cite those publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work and that will guide the reader quickly to the earlier work that is essential for understanding the present investigation.

Fragmentation of research reports must be avoided.

It is improper for an author to submit manuscripts describing essentially the same research to more than one journal of primary publication, unless it is a resubmission of a manuscript rejected for or withdrawn from publication.

All sources should be disclosed, and if a significant amount of other people’s material is to be used, permission must be sought by the author in accordance with copyright law. An author should not use privately obtained information (for example information obtained through conversation), or information obtained through the performance of a confidential service (for example the refereeing of a manuscript), without permission from the person from whom the information originated.

Ethical Obligations of Reviewers

When a manuscript is received by the editor, it is checked by the executive secretary for compliance with formal requirements. At the same time, an external review of a doctor of science, a specialist in the research topic, is attached to the manuscript. Then the executive secretary manuscript is sent for a blind review by one of the members of the editorial board of the journal. In this case, the manuscript removes all the data that can identify the author of the article. After passing a blind review by a member of the editorial board, a review is being prepared – a questionnaire, which is assessed by the Editor-in-Chief of the journal and the other members of the editorial board. After that, the author is informed of the decision of the Chief Editor and the editorial board regarding the acceptance or non-acceptance of the manuscript for publication.
