Editorial Ethics

• The Editorial Board of the journal “Mir Peremen” (“The World of Transformations”) responsibly approaches the task of maintaining scientific reputation and does everything in its power to ensure the quality of scientific publications.
• In its activities, the Editorial Board is guided by the recommendations of the Committee on Publication Ethics, and also takes into account the valuable experience of reputable international journals and publishers.
• Compliance with ethical standards, adopted by the international scientific community, as well as the prevention of any violations of these standards are the most important components of the editorial policy of the journal.

Responsibilities of the Editor-in-Chief

• These guidelines are consistent with editorial policies and standards of the Scientific Publication Ethics Committee (COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors).
• The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for deciding, which of the papers submitted to the editorial office of the journal, should be published. This decision should be made on the basis of verification of the reliability of the work and its importance for researchers and readers.
• The Editor-in-Chief can be guided by the methodological recommendations, developed by the Editorial Board of the journal and such legal requirements as the prevention of defamation, copyright infringement and plagiarism. When deciding on publication, the Editor-in-Chief may consult with members of the Editorial Board or reviewers (or representatives of the research and teaching staff).
• Unpublished data, obtained from manuscripts, submitted for consideration, should not be used for personal purposes or transferred to third parties without the written consent of the author. Information or ideas received during editing should be kept confidential and not used for personal gain.
• The Editor should evaluate the intellectual content of manuscripts, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, origin, citizenship, social status or political preferences of the authors.
• The Editor-in-Chief and the Editorial Board of the journal should take appropriate measures when receiving ethical complaints, regarding the submitted manuscript or published article. Such measures usually include notification to the author and consideration of the complaint, as well as, if necessary, contacting relevant institutes and research organizations. If the validity of the complaint is confirmed, a correction, refutation or other relevant statement is published. Each ethical complaint is subject to review, even if received a few years after publication.

Reviewer’s Responsibilities

• The manuscript, received for review, should be considered as a confidential document that cannot be transferred for review or discussion to third parties, who are not authorized by the Editorial Board.
• Unpublished data, obtained from submitted manuscripts for review, should not be used by the reviewer for personal purposes.
• The reviewer is obliged to give an objective and reasoned assessment of the materials presented. Personal criticism of the author is inadmissible.
• A reviewer who, in his opinion, does not have sufficient qualifications to evaluate the manuscript, or cannot be objective, for example, in case of a conflict of interest with the author or organization, should contact the editor with a request to exclude him from the review process of this given manuscript.

Author’s Responsibilities

• Authors should provide reliable research results. Obviously erroneous or falsified statements are unacceptable.
• Authors must ensure that the results of the research, presented in the submitted manuscript, are completely original. Borrowed fragments or statements must be drawn up with the obligatory indication of the author and the source. Excessive borrowing, as well as plagiarism in any form, including unformed quotes or paraphrasing, is unacceptable.
• It is necessary to recognize the contribution of all persons, who have somehow influenced the course of the study, in particular, the article should provide links to work that mattered during the study.
• Authors should not submit to the journal a manuscript, that has been sent to another journal and is under consideration, as well as an article, already published in another journal.

• The co-authors of the article should indicate all persons, who have made a significant contribution to the study. Among co-authors it is inadmissible to indicate persons who did not participate in the study. The author must ensure that the final version of the article and its submission for publication are approved by all co-authors.
• If the author finds significant errors or inaccuracies in the article at the stage of its consideration or after its publication, he should notify the Editorial Board of the journal as soon as possible.
• The journal reserves the right to reject any manuscript, submitted for publication that does not comply with the above principles.
