Ghostwriting prevention

Ghostwriting is understood as not revealing the names of persons (as authors or co-authors) who have made a substantial contribution to the writing of a publication. It also involves not acknowledging his/her contribution in the acknowledgements to a publication. Guest authorship (or honorary authorship) is, on the other hand, mentioning a person as author or co-author of a publication, even though that person’s contribution was small or non-existent. Both ghostwriting and guest authorship are dishonest in scholarly-scientific terms, and as such they will be exposed and documented by the editors; they will pass information about such dishonesty to relevant institutions (an author’s place of employment, other scientific-scholarly institutions or journals). Therefore the Editors request that all potential contributors provide true information concerning the actual contribution of persons to any submission (furnishing information concerning the affiliation and actual contribution of any such person, and also setting out who is the author of the concept, assumptions, and methods employed in the submission). The author of any submission bears the principal responsibility for the above.

 

Unsolicited materials

The Editors will not return unsolicited materials. The Editors also reserve the right to change the title and to make cuts to any text prior to publication. They also reserve the right to refuse publication to any article.

 

Author’s rights

The right to reproduce, to make use of, and to publish the contents of any page or parts of an article are subject to Polish legislation relating to author’s rights.
