The scientific journal Logistics and Transport pays special attention to ethical issues. Therefore, both authors , reviewers and editors follow the rules of conduct consistent with the standards of scientific ethos.

 

Authors

 

Authors submit scientific articles that they have written single-handedly, without violating the rights of third parties, including intellectual property rights and the right to privacy. There is also no possibility of publishing one article in several magazines/journals. When submitting the work, all authors who have made a significant contribution to its creation are indicated. “Ghostwriting” (not disclosing information about one of the authors having a significant influence on the creation of the publication) and "guest authorship" (when the person mentioned among the authors did not contribute to the creation of the publication at all) are not allowed. All authors agree to submit their article for publication, make necessary corrections and accept its final version. At the very beginning of the editorial process, any possible conflicts of interest should be resolved. The sources of financing and institutions with which the authors are associated are also presented. Authors of articles assure they have been prepared in accordance with the scientific methodology and in a thorough manner. The data on the basis of which articles have been created cannot be manipulated. What is more, authors have source materials and if necessary they are able to make them accessible. Authors should give credit to all sources they have used while writing an article and properly cite references. There is also a distinction between currently published data and data published earlier. The publication process does not involve any fees.

 

Reviewers

 

Each article is subjected to the opinion of two independent reviewers. Reviewers are selected depending on their field of expertise and experience. The review procedure is based on the "double-blind peer review" principle - both reviewers and authors do not know their names, which prevents partiality. Both authors 'and reviewers' personal data are removed from the articles and from the forms of review. Reviews are prepared objectively and they correspond with the knowledge of reviewers. It is possible to accept, reject or indicate the necessary corrections. In the process of reviewing the editorial office acts as an intermediary between authors and reviewers. Reviewers do not use the text of article for purposes other than scientific review. The dealine for any review should always be met, any delays should be clarified and eliminated.

 

Editors

 

People who are members of the editorial board are listed by name and surname both on the website and in each issue of the journal. The board consists of experts - both in terms of theory and practice. They monitor the quality of posted articles, intervening in the case of plagiarism or other forms of copyright infringement. They also try to meet social needs and follow the latest scientific trends by choosing appropriate articles for each issue. Contact with the editorial office is possible via the website.

 

Publication ethics

 

In case of suspicion of any fraud or negligence related to the research process, preparation of the text and its publication, the editors of the journal apply specific means aimed at eliminating this type of behaviour: asking for clarification, rejecting the article. If any author refuses to make necessary explanation, editors ask institutions dedicated to this purpose for help. Both corrections and explanations related to any possible mistakes appear both in the journal and on the website. All articles are copyrighted.
