Ethics of publications

The editorial ethics of the scientific and technical journal "Cosmonautics and Rocket Engineering" is based on the Code of Ethics of Scientific Publications, developed by the International Committee on Ethics of Scientific Publications (COPE).

Ethics of scientific publications is a system of norms of professional conduct in the relationship of authors, reviewers, editors, publishers and readers in the process of creating, distribution and using scientific publications.

Author's Ethics of Scientific Publications

The author (or team of authors) when submitting materials to the scientific and technical journal "Cosmonautics and Rocket Engineering" realizes that he is personally responsible for the novelty and reliability of the results of scientific research, which implies observance of the following principles:

·      The authors of the article should provide reliable results of the conducted studies. Intentionally erroneous or falsified statements are unacceptable.

·      Authors should ensure that the results of the study, as described in the manuscript provided, are completely original. Adopted fragments or statements must be made with a mandatory indication of the author and the source. Excessive adoption, as well as plagiarism in any form, including unformulated quotes, rephrasing or assigning rights to the results of other people's research, are unethical and unacceptable.

·      It is necessary to recognize the contribution of all persons who somehow influenced the course of the study, in particular, the article should contain references to the work that was important for the study.

·      Authors should not provide the journal with a manuscript that was sent to another journal and is pending, as well as an article already published in another journal.

·      If the article sent was partially published in another periodical or book that has copyright to this publication, the authors are responsible for obtaining the appropriate permission for a new publication in a timely manner.

·      All persons who have made a significant contribution to the study should be co-authors of the article. Among co-authors it is inadmissible to indicate persons who did not participate in the study.

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 office of this as soon as possible.

·         The written consent must be attached to the article to be sent in the form of the authors' signatures on the paper and/or electronic copy of the article. Written consent of the authors of the article is an automatic confirmation of the author's or authors' copyrights to the published material.

·         Authors should respect the work of the editorial board and reviewers and eliminate these shortcomings or explain them reasonably.

The Ethics of Reviewing Scientific Publications

The reviewer carries out a scientific examination of copyright materials, as a result of which his actions should not be biased, consisting in the following principles:

The manuscript received for review should be considered a confidential document, which can not be passed on for review or discussion to third parties without authorization from the editorial office.

The reviewer is obliged to give an objective and reasoned assessment of the results of the research. Personal criticism of the author is unacceptable.

A reviewer who does not possess, in his opinion, sufficient qualification for the evaluation of the manuscript, or unable to be objective, for example, in case of a conflict of interest with the author or organization, should notify the editor-in-chief about it, to exclude him from the process of reviewing this manuscript.

Unpublished data obtained from submitted manuscripts should not be used by the reviewer for personal purposes.

In the review, the correspondence of the submitted article to the journal's requirements on the topics and scope is analyzed, as well as the scientific and technical novelty, literacy and comprehensibility of the material presentation, the convincingness of the experimental data, and the representativeness of the bibliographic list.

The result of reviewing an article by a reviewer is a conclusion about the possibility of its publication - in the form submitted with revision after a fundamental processing (with a second review) or on its rejection. This conclusion is approved by the editors and/or editorial board of the journal.

All reviewers should identify cases of plagiarism and other unethical acts. In addition, it is the duty of reviewers to provide constructive feedback to the authors of articles and the editorial staff of the journal.

- relevance, novelty and scientific significance of the presented article;

- reliability of results and completeness of conclusions. The quality of the research and its relevance are the basis for the decision to publish;

- not to allow the publication of information, if there is sufficient reason to believe that it is plagiarism.

The editorial board is obliged to take into account the recommendations of reviewers in making the final decision on the publication of the article. The responsibility for the decision to publish is on the editorial board of the journal.
