ZASADY ETYCZNE

PLRocznik teologiczno-filozoficzny “Resovia Sacra” niezwykle poważnie podchodzi do kwestii naruszenia praw autorskich, plagiatu oraz wykroczeń związanych z dobrymi praktykami w zakresie publikacji. Staramy się chronić prawa autorów i zawsze badamy oskarżenia o plagiat lub niezgodne z prawem wykorzystanie publikowanych artykułów. W równym stopniu staramy się przy tym chronić reputację czasopisma, która cierpi na stosowaniu niewłaściwych praktyk. Czasopismo rezerwuje sobie prawo do podjęcia działań w przepadkach stosowania następujących złych praktyk:

– w przesłanym artykule pojawia się plagiat innej pracy,

– w przesłanym artykule pojawia się wykorzystanie objętych prawami autorskimi materiałów strony trzeciej bez jej zgody lub bez dostatecznego uznania tegoż faktu,

– autorstwo artykułu jest poddawane w wątpliwość.

W takich przypadkach akcje podejmowane przez czasopismo mogą obejmować:

– opublikowanie erraty lub corrigendy,

– wycofanie artykułu, nawet po jego publikacji,

– przedstawienie sprawy władzom wydziału czy innej instytucji, do której autor jest afiliowany,

– podjęcie odpowiednich kroków prawnych.

Rocznik teologiczno-filozoficzno-teologiczny “Resovia Sacra”, szukając dobrych rozwiązań w zakresie etyki publikacyjnej, opiera się na zasadach wypracowanych przez Komitet Etyki Wydawniczej (Comittee on Publication Ethics - COPE), międzynarodową organizację zrzeszającą wydawców i redaktorów czasopism naukowych.

 

PUBLICATION ETHICS AND MALPRACTICE STATEMENT

USA“Resovia Sacra” uses a double-blind peer review system: Manuscript author(s) do not know the identity of the two reviewers to whom the submitted article is sent and, conversely, the reviewers do not know the name(s) of the author(s) of the article. When an author submits an article she/he is asked to include the title of the contribution, an English summary, and the bibliography used in the article. These three items only, along with the text, are sent to the referees when they are asked by the Editor to review a given contribution.

“Resovia Sacra” is a journal committed to upholding the highest standards of publication ethics. In order to provide our readers with a journal of highest quality, we set forth the following principles of our Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement. Any article or review found not in accord with these standards will be eliminated from the journal if malpractice is discovered at any time, even after actual publication. The double-blind peer review process also includes close scrutiny for any possible plagiarism or research fabrication or falsification. In accordance with the code of conduct, we will report any cases of suspected plagiarism or duplicate publishing.

The AUTHOR: Authors must ensure that they have written academically solid and original content that is the fruit of a genuine search for truth. Authors are also asked to abide by the typographical and editorial rules set by the journal's editor. Authors submitting their works to the journal for publication as original articles confirm that the submitted work represents the author's contributions and has not been copied or plagiarized, in whole or in part, from other works without clear citation. Any work or extended wording of other authors, contributors, or sources (including online sites) must be appropriately credited and referenced, and the submitter must be in possession of necessary permissions, if required, for reproducing any content from other sources. Authors submitting their papers also assert that the manuscript, as submitted, has not been accepted nor is under consideration for publication elsewhere. Authors are obliged to acknowledge and adequately cite all content reproduced from other sources. Authors also confirm that all the work in the submitted manuscript is original. Authors are expected to notify the journal editor immediately if any significant error in their work is identified, either before or after publication.

The REVIEWER: Reviewers are asked to contribute to the editorial decision-making process by issuing a balanced and fair evaluation of the reviewed papers. The reviewer's evaluation should be delivered without unnecessary delay, normally within four weeks. The reviewer must keep confidential any and all information supplied by the editor or author. He/she  must also alert the editor to any known previously-published or -submitted content that seems suspiciously similar to that under review. The reviewer must express clearly her/his decision regarding the submitted article, with a recommendation of one of the following: accept; conditionally accept; revise and resubmit; reject. Any selected reviewer who feels unqualified to review the research reported in an assigned manuscript, or knows that its prompt review will be impossible, should notify the Editor-in-Chief and excuse himself from the review process. 

The EDITOR: Misconduct and unethical behavior, including examples outlined above, may be identified and brought to the attention of the Editor-in-Chief and publisher at any time, by anyone. Any person informing the editor or publisher of such conduct is obliged to provide sufficient information and evidence, after which an investigation will be undertaken until a successful decision or conclusion is reached. In the process, the author will be given the opportunity to respond to any allegations. If the Editor-in-Chief finds the allegations justified, the paper submitted will be rejected for publication for violation of the above-stated ethical standards. In a case of serious misconduct, a formal letter may be sent to the head of the author’s academic department, or a formal ban may be imposed on further submissions from that individual for a defined period.

In general, “Resovia Sacra” follows the guidelines on good publication practice prepared by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), available for authors elsewhere on this website (see here)
