  • The best international publishing practices observance and dissemination.
  • The modern expert scientific information-analytical environment formation.
  • Ukrainian scientific research promoting and competitive developments creation for international market of scientific products.
  • The progressive business models of open scientific communication promoting the creation, Ukrainian science integration into European and international scientific field, and also modern digital research infrastructures.
  • The global open science initiatives supporting and modern opportunities using, which provided by the digital landscape (European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), Initiative for Open Citations), etc.
  • Formation of a reputable reviewers team from different countries, representatives of various areas of economic research with a high scientific rating.
  • Ensuring transparency of peer review standards.

Sometimes, the authors resort to much more devious means such as salami-slicing where the authors extract small amounts of data in increments from the previously published articles.
  • If the authors knowingly borrow ideas, the scientific works content of other authors, this is unambiguously assessed by the editorial board and scientific community as plagiarism with the corresponding legal consequences for such an author.

The journal responses to plagiarism include educating authors, contacting authors’ institutions, issuing corrections and issuing retractions.
  • The editor provides the following documentation in response to the plagiarized work: the description of the alleged misconduct; manuscript title; the list of the authors; title of ideas; list of creators and date of creation; copies of both the manuscripts; full name and address of the complainant.
  • The charge of the plagiarism, the supporting materials and the outcomes remain confidential and are known to only those who are involved in the review process.
