GUIDE FOR AUTHORS
The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of work of the author and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior.
It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society of society-owned or sponsored journals.
Ethics topics to consider when publishing:
- Authorship of the paper: Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. Transparency about the contributions of authors is encouraged: authors sign a statement (download the form of statement).
- Originality and plagiarism: The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others, that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.
- Data access and retention: Authors may be asked to provide the raw data in connection with a paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such data.
- Multiple, redundant or concurrent publication: An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Elsevier does not view the following uses of a work as prior publication: publication in the form of an abstract; publication as an academic thesis; publication as an electronic preprint. Note: some society-owned titles and journals that operate double-blind review have different policies on prior publication. Information on prior publication is included within each Elsevier journal’s guide for authors.
- Acknowledgement of sources: Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given.
- Disclosure and conflicts of interest: All submissions must include disclosure of all relationships that could be viewed as presenting a potential conflict of interest.
- Fundamental errors in published works: When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author's obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
- Reporting standards: Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance.
- Hazards and human or animal subjects: Statements of compliance are required if the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, or if it involves the use of animal or human subjects.
- Use of patient images or case details: Studies on patients or volunteers require ethics committee approval and informed consent, which should be documented in the paper.
The publisher has a supporting, investing and nurturing role in the scholarly communication process but is also ultimately responsible for ensuring that best practice is followed in its publications [International Ethical Principles for Scholarly Publication].
The editor of a learned journal is solely and independently responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published, often working in conjunction with the relevant society (for society-owned or sponsored journals) [During Peer Review Process]. The validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers must always underwrite such decisions. The editor may be guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and constrained by such legal requirements as shall then be in force regarding issues such as libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The editor may confer with other editors or reviewers (or society officers) in making these decisions.
Academic misconduct in any form will not be tolerated by the journal. In cases of suspected misconduct (plagiarism, fraud, breached intellectual property rights, etc.) a panel will be formed to evaluate the substance of the claim. If the claim is supported by evidence, the paper in question will be rejected and all authors and their affiliations will be informed. In cases where the paper has already been published before the misconduct was discovered, the paper will be withdrawn from European Cooperation archive and an announcement of this act will be posted in the first issue published following the case. Cases of misconduct may result in a three-year or longer ban from future submission to European Cooperation. The author(s) might be blacklisted.

Abstract in English should be informative and original, it should reflect the main content of the article and research results (summary of the article and its reviewing), the abstract in English should be min 1800 characters. A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided, but if essential, then cite the author(s) and year(s). Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.;

The author should separate from the general problem the part, which is explored by him, and show its actuality;
Literature review and the problem statement. Statement of purpose and methods of theme research that is considered;
Research results. Description of main material with explanation of scientific results;
Conclusions. Scientific novelty, theoretical and practical importance of research, socio-economic effects arising from the implementation of scientific results. Prospects for further research in this area;
Authors should ensure that material cited in their article was published in peer-reviewed scholarly publications; citation of non-peer-reviewed material (such as conference posters/abstracts, unpublished data on file, and preprints) should be clearly identified and kept to a minimum, and data from “predatory” journals should not be used to support statements made in the article.
“Predatory” journals are usually open access publications that publish articles with little or no peer review, and do not apply the editorial standards and publishing ethics of scholarly journals.
“Predatory” journals often have very similar names to those of well-established journals. Please note that several abstracting and indexing services, including Clarivate Analytics, are taking ethical publication seriously by examining the content, practices and websites of these “predatory” journals. If you would like to learn more about learned (open access) publishers and publications, please visit the websites of the OASPA (Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association), DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals) or COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics).

7. Math formulae.
Please submit math equations as editable text and not as images. Present simple formulae in line with normal text where possible and use the solidus (/) instead of a horizontal line for small fractional terms, e.g., X/Y. In principle, variables are to be presented in italics. Powers of e are often more conveniently denoted by exp. Number consecutively any equations that have to be displayed separately from the text (if referred to explicitly in the text). Each formula on which there is the link within the article text (example, «… using equation (3) it is possible…»), should be numbered. At this the alignment of the formula by width and numbering alignment by right side.
- Citing, tables, illustrations, all data are submitted with reference to the source. Under each table and figure should be indicated the source (Source: ….). For notations should be used the font: Verdana, 9 point.
- It is possible to format the text using the lists. Lists can be bulleted, numbering and multilevel. For numbering lists should be used Arabic numbers «1.», «1.1.», «2)», «2.1)» etc. For the bulleted lists be used symbols «-», «–» or «•».
Use of inclusive language
Inclusive language acknowledges diversity, conveys respect to all people, is sensitive to differences, and promotes equal opportunities. Articles should make no assumptions about the beliefs or commitments of any reader, should contain nothing which might imply that one individual is superior to another on the grounds of race, sex, culture or any other characteristic, and should use inclusive language throughout. Authors should ensure that writing is free from bias, for instance by using 'he or she', 'his/her' instead of 'he' or 'his', and by making use of job titles that are free of stereotyping (e.g. 'chairperson' instead of 'chairman' and 'flight attendant' instead of 'stewardess').
