1.  Author's ethics

 Originality and plagiarism

The authors of the article must ensure that they have written a completely original work, and if the authors have used the work and / or words of other authors, it should be appropriately noted by reference or indicated in the text.

Plagiarism takes many forms, from impersonating someone else's work as one's own to copying or paraphrasing essential parts of someone else's work (without citing the source), as well as to claiming rights to the results obtained in studies performed by others. Plagiarism in all its forms is unethical behaviour when publishing and is unacceptable.

Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal at the same time is unethical and unacceptable publishing behaviour. The author should not submit for consideration already published article in another journal.

The uniqueness of the text of article is checked with using the Unicheck plagiarism signs search system.

Authorship of the work

Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, planning, execution, or interpretation of the study described.

All persons who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. If any person has participated in any substantial part of the project, he/she should be thanked or included in the list of co-authors.

Disclosure and conflict of interest.

All authors should disclose in their manuscript a financial or any other material conflict of interest that could affect the evaluation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be made public.

Errors in published works

If the author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his published work, his duty is to urgently notify the chief editor about this and cooperate with the editor to publish a retraction or correction of the article. If the editor-in-chief learns from a third party that a published work contains a significant error, it is the responsibility of the author to promptly refute or correct the article, or to provide the editor-in-chief with proof of the correctness of the published work.
