  • Authors are responsible for the originality and authorship of their manuscripts and should behave in accordance with the ethical principles and rules of scientific honesty for the authors of the European Association of Scientific Editors (EASE): http://www.ease.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/EASE-Guidelines-2017-English.pdf

    If they use other knowledge or their own previously published knowledge, this should be properly referred and cited. The description of the research process should contain all the information relevant for judging the ethics of research implementation. Editorial board may also request confirmation that the research has been approved by the ethics committee of the competent institution. Authors are required to obtain permission to print pictures, documents and other materials from the appropriate copyright holders. Authors should list the organizations, scientific projects or institutions that have supported research, which are published in the article.
  • According to the guidelines for authors of the European Association of Scientific Editors (EASE) http://ease.org.uk/publications/author-guidelines, authors are expected to consider carefully the list and order of authors before submitting their manuscript and provide the definitive list of authors at the time of the original submission. Any addition, deletion or rearrangement of author names in the authorship list should be made only before the manuscript has been accepted and only if approved by the journal editorial board. To request such a change, the editorial board must receive the following from the corresponding author: (a) the reason for the change in author list and (b) written confirmation (e-mail, letter) from all authors that they agree with the changes. In the case of addition or removal of authors, this includes confirmation from the author being added or removed. Only in exceptional circumstances will the Editorial board consider the addition, deletion or rearrangement of authors after the manuscript has been accepted. If the manuscript has already been published in an online issue, any requests approved by the Editor will result in a corrigendum.
  • Reviewers are required to handle each manuscript as confidential, and to protect the integrity of the author and manuscript.

    Reviewers should consider the received manuscript in a highly responsible, constructive and objective way and warn the editors if they are not sufficiently qualified for the topic of work.

    Reviewers are required to disclose potential conflicts of interest regarding the manuscript that they review, and in case of conflicts of interest, are excluded from the review procedure, by clicking under the RESEARCH MANAGEMENT SYSTEM of the University of Tetova "Reject to review". It is equally valid for members of the Editorial boards who are excluded from the editorial process if they are in conflict of interest (co-operation or other form of relationship with the authors).
