Publication ethics

Editorial Board of "Public policy" journal adheres to generally accepted ethical standards of scientific publishing and is guided in its work by the Declaration of the Association of scientific editors and publishers (ANRI), "Ethical principles of scientific publications", and also recommendations of Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). Violations of copyright and moral norms are not only unacceptable from an ethical point of view, but also serve as a barrier to the development of scientific knowledge, undermining the authority of political science.
- The Editorial Board assumes that the authors and reviewers are familiar with the algorithm of work and the requirements imposed on them (see ethical principles of the authors of the journal, ethical principles of reviewing)

- The Editorial Board makes impartial decisions based solely on the professional level and quality of the materials provided, regardless of race, gender, nationality, citizenship, religious, ideological or political position of the authors

- Organizing the process of double-blind reviewing, the Editorial Board undertakes to ensure that there is no conflict of interest between the parties. Reviewers may not be the author or co-author of the peer-reviewed work, as well as scientific supervisors of the authors-applicants of the scientific degree

- The Editorial Board is categorically against violations of the ethics of publishing scientific research, the most common of which are plagiarism, sending previously published materials to the journal, misappropriation of the results of other people's scientific research, as well as falsification of data. In each of these cases, the manuscript may be withdrawn from the journal

- The Editorial Board undertakes not to use the data obtained from the submitted manuscripts and not to transfer them to third parties (except for reviewers) before publication

– All principal and substantive adjustments that could be made to the text will be agreed with the author. In case of disagreement with the edit, both parties have the right to refuse to publish the material or find a consensus solution

- The journal confirms that it publishes materials exclusively at no cost. Any attempt to offer a financial reward by the authors or other interested parties may result in the rejection of the publication

The materials published in the journal may not reflect the point of view of the Founders, Editorial Board and Editors. However, the Editorial Board is responsible for the published material
