Editor Responsibilities

1. The whole responsibility for acceptance or rejection of an article rests with the editorial board. In making these decisions, the editor may be guided by the policies of the journal’s editorial board as well as by legal requirements regarding libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The Editorial board makes an unbiased conclusion as to the publication on the base of reliability of provided data and academic significance of a work under consideration.

2. The Editorial board should evaluate manuscripts for intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the author(s). The editor should also preclude business or political needs from compromising intellectual and ethical standards.

3. In making the decision of publication, the Editorial board may consult other editors or experts.

4. The Editorial Board should seek to ensure a fair and appropriate peer review process. The editorial board guarantees the two-way anonymity of the procedure and its objectivity, attracting experts on the subject matter, supporting and expanding the circle of reviewers. The editorial board provides an effective selection of reviewers who are able to make a competent opinion about the work and do not have any conflict of interest with the authors.

5. The editor and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate. Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in an any research without the express written consent of the author. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage.

6. The Editorial board should not disregard claims concerning reviewed manuscripts or published materials. In case of conflicts, they should make reasonable best efforts for restoration of violated rights.

7. If the editorial board is presented with convincing evidence that the main substance or conclusions of a research published in the journal are erroneous, the editor should facilitate publication of an appropriate report pointing out the error and, if possible, correcting it.

8. In case of conflicts over copyright infringement by the author of the publication, the Editorial board disclaims responsibility for such violations, as it does not directly or indirectly infringe on the copyrights of the creators of illegally borrowed content. All claims from authors whose copyrights were violated should be directed to authors of publications that violated such rights. Nevertheless, if the fact of illegal borrowing is discovered and proved, the Editorial board undertakes to publish an information note in the nearest issue of the journal about a case of violation of copyright published in the pages of the journal, indicating the original author.

9. The Editorial board is responsible for interaction with the authors, which is based on the principles of justice, courtesy, objectivity, honesty and transparency
