Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement

The Editorial Board has been doing its best to keep the ethical standards adopted by the world scientific community and to prevent the publication malpractice of any kind. This policy is considered to be an imperative condition for the fruitful contribution of the journal in the development of the modern network of knowledge in chemistry and boundary fields. The activity of the Editorial Board in this respect is based, in particular, on the recommendations of the Committee of Publication Ethics and valuable practice of world-leading journals and publishers. The submission of a manuscript implies that it contains new significant scientific results obtained by authors that where never published before. Each paper is peer reviewed by at least two independent experts who are completely free to express their motivated critical comments on the level of the research, its novelty, reliability, readability and relevance to the journal scope. These comments are the background for the final decision about the paper. Once the manuscript is accepted, it becomes the open-access paper, and the copyright remains with authors. All participants of the review process are strongly asked to disclose conflicts of interest of any kind (financial, academic, personal, etc.). Any indication of plagiarism or fraudulent research receives extremely serious attention from the side of the Editorial Board, as well as authorship disputes and groundless subdivision of the results into several small papers. Confirmed plagiarism or fraudulent research entail the categorical rejection of the manuscript.
