Responsibilities of the author
Each submitted text is verified by reviewers as well as using anti-plagiarism software. Should any fraudulent practice be suspected, the Secretary shall initiate an investigation with the participation of reviewers and the author of the text, as well as advise the Editor-in-Chief. If the suspicion is confirmed, the Editor-in-Chief shall decide to reject the text immediately and notify the author of the text of the fact.
In cases where an article has more than one author, contribution percentage must be provided for each of the authors.
The author/author is obliged to verify the correctness and accuracy of all citations contained in their text and in the bibliography.

Guest authorship (honorary authorship) denotes the situation where the contribution of an author is negligible or non-existent but they are still listed as an author/co-author of the publication.
References to works which do not provide the cited data but merely another reference to a study where they are included.
