The following is the full text of the Declaration (Equipment and news of radiation measurements): M.2016

  1. This Declaration was developed by the Association of Scientific Editors and Publishers as a set of ethical principles governing the conduct of editorial offices, editors, reviewers, publishers and authors in the field of scientific publications. The text of the Declaration is intended to be used as an integral document, and each of its separate provisions should be applied taking into account all other applicable provisions.

  3. The equipment and news of radiation measurements sees its goal in the formation in the scientific community of a clear idea of publication ethics, an open and unconditional condemnation of unethical behavior and the complete rejection of any kind of cooperation leading to the production of “junk” publications that impede the development of science as a whole.
  4. Basic principles:

Ethical standards of the editorial staff. The editorial team of the journal in its activities is guided by the principles of science, objectivity, professionalism, and impartiality.

  1. Responsibility for ethical compliance. Researchers, authors, editors, reviewers, and publishers have ethical obligations regarding the publication and dissemination of research results.
  2. Norms of communication with the authors. Interaction with the authors is based on the principles of justice, courtesy, objectivity, honesty and transparency.
  3. The existence of a peer review institution. All the contents of the journal, except for advertising and editorial materials clearly indicated as such, are subject to mandatory peer review by open experts (open, blind, double blind). Double blind peer review is preferred.
  4.  Access to publications. Magazines guarantee access to publications, providing storage of materials in leading libraries and repositories of scientific information of the country.
  5. Informational transparency. On the publication page on the Internet, the provisions on publication ethics and peer-review are published, the journal’s policy is formulated clearly, the rules for submitting manuscripts, instructions for authors and information on the availability of materials (free access or by subscription) are developed. ISSN, the address of the publisher is required.
  6. Information about paid services. All information about paid services, if any in one form or another, is clearly registered and available on the journal’s website, approved by the editor-in-chief. If the magazine does not provide paid services, this is also indicated on the website of the publication.
  7. Compliance with the ethical criteria of authorship.

1. A person who has largely participated in writing the work, in developing its concept, in scientific design, collecting material, analyzing and interpreting is the Author only; 2. The consent of all authors to the publication is mandatory. All collaborators must meet these criteria.

12.        Coordination of the final text of the article with the author. The publication of an article under the author’s name implies the occurrence of copyright. The publication of a text that is not agreed with the author, as well as the introduction of unauthorized persons as co-authors, is a violation of copyright.

13. Terms of decision-making by the editors. Adoption of editorial decisions is carried out in a limited time and is set out in a clear and constructive form on the website of the publication in the instructions for the authors.

15. Prevention and correction of ethical violations. It is the duty of scientific editors to prevent situations when authors, reviewers, or other subjects involved in the production of scientific texts carry out unethical behavior, as well as ensure the removal of unscrupulous publications from the scientific space, and collaborate with the ethics council and scientific associations.

16. Conflict of interests. Editors urge authors to disclose relationships with industrial and financial organizations that could lead to conflicts of interest. All sources of funding should be indicated by the authors in the body of the article.

The Declaration on the Ethical Principles of Scientific Publications, developed by the Association of Scientific Editors and Publishers, recognizes the following as unethical behavior in the field of scientific publications:

17. The requirement for authors to independently provide reviews of their own articles, as well as contractual and pseudo-reviews. This practice implies a lack of peer review in the journal.

18. Offer agency services. The provision of such services to authors as “turnkey publication”, correspondence with the editors on behalf of the author, finalization by the agent of articles on the recommendations of the reviewer, preparation of paid reviews.

19. Sale of co-authorship, gift co-authorship, changes in the composition of authors. Indication among authors of persons who have not made an intellectual contribution to the study is a violation of copyright and ethical standards, since it not only misleads readers, but is also considered fraud.

20. Publication of materials of correspondence "scientific" conferences. Since the practice of such conferences is directly related to fraud and fraud in the field of science, the publication of materials from these conferences is regarded as unethical, contributing to the distribution of pseudoscientific texts.

21. Transfer of texts of articles to other journals without the consent of the authors. The publication of an article in a journal that has not been agreed with the author is a violation of the interests of the author.

22. Transfer of materials of authors to third parties. The transfer of article materials sent to the editorial office to third parties, except for reviewers and editorial staff, is a violation of copyright and the principle of confidentiality of editorial processes.

23. Manipulations with citation. Artificial increases of scientometric indices, excessive self-quoting and friendly quoting; irrelevant links misleads readers and are interpreted as fraud.

24. Plagiarism, fraud and fabrication. The editors conscientiously work with the texts of articles, preventing the appearance of unscrupulous scientific publications on the pages of their publications containing plagiarism, falsification and fabrication of data.
