Principles to be followed by the author of scientific publications
An author is considered a researcher who has made a significant intellectual contribution to the published work and presented the results of his research. In the case of co-authorship, each author is responsible for at least one component of the work and should be aware of the contributions of others. He must be fully confident in the qualifications and professionalism of his co-authors.
All persons cited as authors must meet the definition of authorship. The participation of each author in the work must be substantial enough, since each author is publicly responsible for its respective component.
Authors may enter into separate, additional contractual agreements to distribute the published work (for example, place it in a university repository or publish it in a book), with recognition of its original publication in this journal.
All persons related to the work, but not meeting the criteria for authorship, are listed in the section "Acknowledgments" / "Acknowledgments" (persons who helped in planning the study, selecting the material and its analysis, preparing the manuscript for publication, etc.).
The author does not have the right to send the same text to different editions. If the article uses previously published information, the author is obliged to indicate its source, and at the request of the editor, provide a copy of the cited material.
The author must confirm that his article is original and indicate the sources of the cited information.
The author must declare a potential conflict of interest (for example, circumstances that, in his opinion, may affect the publication process).
If a significant error is found in the publication, the author is obliged to immediately inform the editor about it. During the preparation of the material for publication, the author is obliged to cooperate with the editor and publisher and, if necessary, introduce appropriate changes into the text.
The author takes full responsibility for possible plagiarism of text, drawings and other materials. Any copyright infringement will be dealt with according to the criteria proposed by COPE.
The author (or group of authors) realizes that he bears the initial responsibility for the novelty and reliability of the results of scientific research, which implies compliance with the following principles:
- the authors of the article must provide reliable results of the research. Knowingly erroneous or falsified statements are unacceptable;
- Authors must ensure that the research results presented in the submitted manuscript are completely original. Borrowed fragments or statements must be made with the obligatory indication of the author and the original source. Excessive borrowing, as well as plagiarism in any form, including unofficial quotations, paraphrasing or appropriation of rights to the results of someone else's research, is unethical and unacceptable;
- it is necessary to recognize the contribution of all persons who in one way or another influenced the course of the research, in particular, the article should contain references to works that were of importance in the conduct of the research;
- Authors should not submit to the journal a manuscript that was sent to another journal and is under consideration, as well as an article already published in another journal;
- the co-authors of the article must indicate all persons who have made a significant contribution to the research. Among the co-authors it is inadmissible to indicate persons who did not participate in the study;
- if the author discovers significant errors or inaccuracies in the article at the stage of its consideration or after its publication, he must notify the editorial board of the journal as soon as possible.
Common Ethical Issues and Solutions
Plagiarism and duplication of publications
In case of plagiarism or duplication of publications (fan mailing), the article is additionally checked using the software for checking the text for originality (the editorial office of the journal has installed the software of the Antiplagiat company). In addition, to determine the novelty and originality of the manuscript, which aroused the editor's suspicion, experts from among the members of the editorial board / editorial board of the journal are additionally involved.
If, after an investigation into the plagiarism or duplication of the article, the information is confirmed, then in accordance with the COPE guidelines, the editorial staff of the journal contacts the author (s) of the article and requests an explanation from them.
Based on the results of the editorial investigation and the response of the author (s), the editorial board of the journal makes the following decision:
- in the event that the article is still under review, the editor sends it back to the author for revision and asks to add appropriate links, use quotation marks to indicate direct citations, in order to exclude plagiarism in the text;
- if the similarity between the manuscripts is too great for revision, then the manuscript submitted for evaluation should be rejected;
- if the article has already been published, then it is necessary to start the retraction procedure adopted in the journal.
Disputes about authorship are one of the most common complaints in the editors of magazines. In this regard, the editors of the Russian Journal of Deviant Behavior adhere to the following guidelines to help establish authorship.
- Authors must indicate as co-authors all persons who have valid claims for authorship. A co-author is defined as any person who has made significant scientific contributions to the work reported in the article and shares responsibility and accountability for the results;
- if the article was prepared by two or more authors, the editorial office of the journal requires to indicate the appointed corresponding author, who, when sending the article for publication, guarantees that:
* all named coauthors have authorized him to act as an agent on their behalf;
* all named coauthors agreed on the order of the names indicated in the article;
* all named co-authors should have made a significant contribution to the preparation of the material for publication;
* all named co-authors are responsible for the development, writing and editing of the article, as well as for checking and confirming the article before submitting it;
* all named co-authors approve the final version of the article, are aware of the submission and approve it before submitting;
* all listed co-authors agree that if the article is found to be unsafe, erroneous, fraudulent, or in violation of the warranties provided, they share the responsibility;
- all named coauthors agree to grant the Corresponding Author the right to act on their behalf with respect to:
• communication with the editorial board of the journal when submitting an application and during the review process (approval of changes required by reviewers; preparation of the final revised version of the article);
• Articles (checking, correcting and confirming the accuracy of all content in the proofs of the article).
Corresponding author must make sure that all specified e-mail addresses, phone numbers, affiliations are correct for all specified authors.
Conflict of interests
A conflict of interest arises if the author (or the institution in which he / she works), reviewer, editor, or any participant in the publication preparation process has financial or private interests (personal relationships, scientific rivalry, intellectual disagreements, etc.) that may negatively reflect on their actions.
Information about the conflict of interest of the participants in the publication process may appear at different stages of the preparation of the article for publication.
1. When submitting a manuscript, the author may declare a possible conflict of interest that may affect his article. The author can do this in a cover letter or in any other way (e-mail, application on the journal's website) notify the editorial office of the journal. By providing this information and ensuring full transparency, the author makes a significant contribution to the dissemination of any potential concerns about conflicts of interest, which helps to preserve and maintain the integrity of scientific research.
2. If the author has declared a conflict of interest during the editorial review or review process, the editor should carefully check the information declared by the author and fairly evaluate the manuscript for any unfounded bias. If the results reported in the manuscript are based on careful research and the author has arrived at his conclusions independently of anyone else's interests, the editor should allow the manuscript to go through the peer review process. However, if a conflict of interest materially affects the interpretation of the results, the editor should consider opt-out.
3. If the author does not declare a conflict of interest until the manuscript is accepted or published, the editor should consider the author's misconduct and act in accordance with the COPE guidelines in each specific situation.
4. Reviewers provide the editors with information about possible conflicts of interest that may affect their opinion on the manuscript. In the presence of such a danger, they refrain from reviewing this material. Reviewers cannot take advantage of the results of the work in question before its publication.
All participants in the process of preparing an article for publication are required to disclose information about any relationship that may be viewed as a potential source of conflict of interest.
The editorial board publishes such information if it believes that it may have an impact on the evaluation of the manuscript.
