Studia Polonijne is a journal upholding the highest standards of publication ethics. In order to provide our readers with a journal of the 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. A 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 such 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 reviewers who feel unqualified to review the research reported in an assigned manuscript, or know that its prompt review will be impossible, should notify the Editor-in-Chief and excuse themselves from the review process. 


The EDITOR: Misconduct and unethical behaviour, 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, Studia Polonijne follows the guidelines on good publication practice prepared by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), available for authors elsewhere on this website (see here).
