 Ethical standards concerning publications are necessary to guarantee high quality of scientific publications, trust to scientific researches from society and that people will gain recognition for the ideas.

 It is necessary to avoid:

 Data fabrication – it means that the researcher didn’t carry out any work, and just thought up data.

Falsification — means that the researcher performed experiment, but then changed some data.

Plagiarism — use of someone else’s ideas and works, without paying them tribute – it is dishonest and unfair. Copying at least of one sentence from the manuscript of another or even own of earlier published manuscript without registration of the quote is considered plagiarism – reproduce in your own words.

Registration in some journals: it is unethical to submit one manuscript in more, than one journal at the same time. Such actions take away time of editors and reviewers and can damage reputation of journals if the manuscript is published, more than in one of them.

Wrong definition of authorship: all specified authors have to make the significant scientific contribution to the research described in the manuscript and to prove the claims. Don’t forget to specify everyone who made the significant scientific contribution, including students and laboratory assistants.
