Ethical Code

Novelty of research material and authorship
The authors of the manuscripts are responsible for the scientific content and novelty of the research materials. Articles submitted for publication should not have been previously published. Authors may not submit a typescript that is under consideration elsewhere. Plagiarism and falsification of research data are considered as misconducts. All sources of formerly published data must be properly cited in the text and in the list of cited literature. Authors are responsible for ensuring that all persons cited in the text as pers. com. are aware of and consent to such a citation. All authors should be listed on submitted papers.

Research funding
The source of research funding should be listed on all papers in separate paragraph.

All copyright permissions must be cleared and if necessary, paid for by the author. It is also the author’s responsibility to include whatever acknowledgements are stipulated by institutions holding the copyright. If necessary, evidence in writing that such permissions have been secured from the rights-holder must be made available to the editors. Plagiarism and falsification of research data are considered unethical behavior.

All manuscripts submitted to the National Museum journals are peer-reviewed by least two independent reviewers. Names of reviewers are kept confidential by the journal’s editors.
