Rules for reviewing submitted materials

Ghostwriting* and guest authorship**

Readers should be certain that published authors present their work results in a clear, reliable and honest way, irrespective of whether they are direct authors or they were assisted by a specialized entity (a natural or legal person). To prove a good standing of a researcher and the highest editorial standards, the information about entities assisting the publication (factual, in-kind, financial contribution, etc.) should be made open.

To prevent ghostwriting and guest authorship the magazine Editorial Office introduces the following solutions:

In relation to other aspects, Editorial Office follows guidelines published by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

  * “Ghostwriting” is a situation when someone contributed substantially to a publication without disclosing their participation as one of authors or without being mentioned in acknowledgments placed in a publication.
** “Guest authorship” (“honorary authorship”) is a situation when an author’s involvement is insignificant or none but still they are authors/coauthors of a publication.
