  • concealment of conflict of interest;
  • assessment of professional qualities of reviewers;

Plagiarism can take many forms, from presenting someone else's work as an author's work, to copying or rephrasing essential parts of someone else's work (without attribution), or to claiming ownership of someone else's research. Plagiarism in all forms is unethical and unacceptable.

The manuscript authors should submit entirely original work. References to the results of the works of other authors should be accompanied by references to the relevant primary sources (which should be included in the list of references).

Citation of the text, previously published somewhere, should be framed as a DIRECT SPEECH (the text should be enclosed in quotation marks) with the obligatory indication of the source. The inclusion of large fragments of borrowed text in the manuscript is unacceptable.

The contribution of others to the study should always be recognized. Authors should refer to publications that were of great importance in the performance of scientific work covered in the manuscript.

Data obtained informally (e.g. during a conversation, correspondence or discussion with third parties) should not be used or presented without the written permission of the original source.

Information obtained from confidential sources (for example, grant for research) should not be mentioned in the manuscript without the Express written permission of the author of the manuscript, who is directly related to these confidential sources.

Identification of plagiarism is carried out:

  • in the process of the peer review;
  • using the ANTIPLAGIAT software;
  • after the publication of manuscripts-upon the treatment of readers with the relevant statements.

In establishing the fact of plagiarism of the data (results of scientific work) or ideas, the manuscript (article) will be withdrawn and rejected from publication, even if it has already been published. An official notice will be posted on the journal's website.

Simultaneous submission of a manuscript to several journals or submission of already published data under a different title

Identification of the fact of submission of the same manuscript to more than one journal at the same time will be regarded as a violation of publication ethics. The manuscript will be rejected.

Publication of a certain type of articles (for example, translated articles) in some cases is permissible under certain conditions. When submitting a manuscript for secondary publication, the authors should notify the Editorial Board and justify the expediency of such publication in detail. In the case of a secondary publication, the resolution of issues related to copyright for publication is decided on a case-by-case basis. The General rules of the manuscript for the "secondary" publication are:

  • full bibliographic reference to the primary publication;
  • preservation of the original bibliography of the primary work.

More information on acceptable forms of secondary (repeated) publications can be found on the ICMJE page.
