Publishing board ethics

The Odessa National Polytechnic University, as the Hoisting and Conveying Equipment peer-reviewed magazine publisher, supports the Elsevier publishing house policy aimed at adhering the publisher’s ethics principles.

One can recall various examples of issues related to publishing ethics the editors inevitably do face in everyday practice, as well as sad occurrences when an author copies a large portion of the “borrowed” study without referencing to the source work, or when the plagiarized study is misappropriated and claimed to issue from false author’s own work, apart that sometimes there occur fake researches and frauds and, sure, unsustained sources or disputes over authorship.

Odessa National Polytechnic University recognizes that tracking compliance to the publishing ethics principles is one of key components of reviewing and publishing process found under the magazine editor-in-chief responsibility. Therefore, the Odessa National Polytechnic University adopted guidelines developed by Elsevier Publishing House as a tool assisting editors, reviewers and authors to comply with their moral obligation. In addition, the Odessa National Polytechnic University closely cooperates with other publishers to put these publishing ethics standards into everyday practice.

These guidelines are based on current Elsevier publishing ethics policy.
