Information for Authors

Information for Authors

Integrity in academic work is one of the foundations of scientific quality. Readers should be confident that the authors of a publication have presented the results of their work in a transparent, honest and fair way, regardless of whether they are the direct authors or have used some help of specialist (a private individual or legal professional).
The ethical attitudes of the researcher and the highest of editorial standards should be evident throughout the publication and there should be clear information on individuals that have contributed to the creation of a publication (technical, material and financial input etc.) This is a manifestation not only of good manners, but also of social responsibility.
In contrast, examples of unethical practices are ‘ghostwriting’ and ‘guest authorship.’
‘Ghostwriting’ is defined as when someone has made a substantial contribution to a publication, without revealing his/her participation as an author or without his/her role being mentioned in the acknowledgements section.
‘Guest authorship’ (‘honorary authorship’) on the other hand, is when the author’s input is negligible or in did not actually take place, and yet he is the author / co-author of the publication.
To prevent cases of ‘ghostwriting’ and ‘guest authorship’, authors must notify and disclose to the editorial office the contribution of each respective author to the publication (including information regarding their affiliations and contributions, i.e. who is the author of the concept, assumptions, methods, protocol, etc. that have been used in the preparation of publications). The author who submits the manuscript is a person responsible for maintaining this practice.


Authors are obliged to provide the Editorial Board with information regarding the sources of funding of publications and the contribution of scientific research institutions, associations and other entities (‘financial disclosure’).
The Editorial Board hereby notifies that ‘ghostwriting’ and ‘guest authorship’ are considered to be a scientific misconduct. All detected cases will be unmasked, and relevant parties will be notified (institutions employing the authors, scientific societies, associations of scientific editors, etc.).
The Editorial Office documents all cases of scientific misconduct, particularly any infringement of the ethics rules applicable to research/academic work.
