Ethical Standards

The editorial Team warns against academic misconduct such as plagiarism, ghostwriting and guest authorship. Any instances of their occurrence will be detected and notified. In cases where the editors have doubts concerning the reliability of the publication, the author will be questioned with regard to the particular issue concerned. In the event of the absence of a satisfactory response, the appropriate body will investigate any questionable matters.

According to recommendations developed by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the editorial process implements firewalls to protect against ghostwriting. “Readers should be assured that the authors of publications present the results of their work in a transparent, fair and honest way, regardless of whether they are the direct writers or they have used the aid of a specialized entity (either natural or legal). Evidence of the ethical attitudes of the researcher and the highest editorial standards should entail disclosure of information concerning factors contributing to the creation of the publication (technical input, material, financial, etc.), which reflect not only good academic etiquette, but also prevailing social standards.” (https://pbn.nauka.gov.pl/; 29.11.2011).

All indications of misconduct will be documented by the editors, especially violations and breaches of ethics applicable to the study (viz. http://publicationethics.org) and which have been approved by a competent authority (more information on the ethics of scholarship can be found on the website for the Committee on Ethics in Science: http://www.ken.pan.pl).

Editors will make every effort to ensure that in the case of a breach of ethics, an appropriate resolution to the problem is sought.

Articles, reviews and other materials published in Studia Filologiczne must be consistent with international guidelines on ethics (see http://publicationethics.org/international-standards-editors-and-authors).

In the case of articles in which the authors describe their research based on other people’s achievements, consent of appropriate persons must be obtained.

Before submitting a text, the author must: (a) include a statement about the contribution of individual authors to the creation of publication (indicating their affiliation and contribution), (b) ensure that there are no instances of plagiarism, false data, etc. with respect to the article’s authenticity.

Where justified, the editors may seek to obtain information about the sources of funding for a specific work, as well as the contribution of research institutions and other entities (i.e. financial disclosure).
