Responsibilities of the Journal Editor

The editor of the journal is responsible for deciding which of the papers submitted to the editorial board should be published on the basis of positive reviews.

This decision should always be made based on the validity of the work and its importance to researchers and readers. The editor is guided by legal requirements to prevent defamation, copyright infringement and plagiarism.

The editor of the journal takes into account only the scientific value of the submitted works and does not take into account race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnic origin, citizenship or political views of the author.

The editor of the journal and the staff of the editorial board (council) should not disclose the information of the manuscript to anyone other than the author, reviewers, potential reviewers, consultants of the editorial board, as well as the publisher.

Disclosure and conflict of interest

Unpublished scientific data or ideas from submitted articles may not be used in any of the works of the editor or reviewers without the written permission of the authors. The use of confidential information for personal gain is not allowed.

The editor should require all authors of the journal to provide information on competing interests and to publish corrections if a conflict of interest was identified after publication. If necessary, it is possible to publish a rebuttal.
