SECURITY PROCEDURE AGAINST GHOSTWRITING AND GHOST AUTHORSHIP
Taking into account standards determined for scientific magazines by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the Polish Journal of Management Studies Editorial Board introduces the following principles protecting against ghostwriting and ghost authorship:
The Author/Authors of an article are obliged to reveal the percentage share of all the individuals in the making of this article (including their affiliation as well as contribution i.e. information on the authorship of concepts, assumptions, methods etc. used while preparing the publication). The principal responsibility for that lies on the Author who submits the article for publication.
The Author/Authors of the article are obliged to inform the Editorial Board about the source of financing the article and the involvement of other institutions, societies or economic entities in financial and substantial support as well as in providing access to data, documents and information.
The Polish Journal of Management Studies Editorial Board reserves the right to collect and store all the information about the revealed cases of ghostwriting and ghost authorship and to report these cases to proper units (the Author’s employers, scientific societies or editorial boards of other scientific magazines).
