To counteract ghostwriting” and „guest authorship”, the Editorial Board of „Studia Politologiczne” implemented procedures connected with blocking ghostwriting.

Ghostwriting” and „guest authorship” are signs of scientific unreliability. All detected cases will be disclosed, including notifying the proper entities (institutions employing the Authors, scientific societies, associations of scientific editors etc.).

We are dealing with ghostwriting when somebody who has made a significant contribution to the text does not disclose their participation as one of the Authors or when their role is not mentioned in the acknowledgements included in the publication.

We are dealing with guest authorship” („honorary authorship”) when the Author’s participation is negligible or it is none despite the fact he/she is referred to as the Author/co-author of the publication.

The Author of a publication is obliged to provide information on the sources of financing the publication, the contribution of scientific and research institutions, associations and other entities („financial disclosure”).

The Editorial Board of „Studia Politologiczne” requires that the Authors disclose the contribution of particular Authors to the publication (providing affiliations and information on the Author of the concept, assumptions, methods, protocol, etc. used while preparing the publication). The Author bears responsibility for the submitted text.

The Editorial Board of „Studia Politologiczne” documents all signs of scientific unreliability, especially of breaking and infringing the principles of ethics binding in science.

Within 2 moths after submission of the text, the Author is informed on the text being qualified for the reviewing procedure or rejected due to formal faults.
