Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement - Anthropologiai Közlemények
(the official journal of the Anthropological Section of the Hungarian Biological Society)
The ethic statements of Anthropologiai Közlemények are based on the Best Practice
Guidelines for Journal Editors developed by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
Duties of Editors
Publication decisions. The editor of Anthropologiai Közlemények is responsible for deciding
which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published. The editor may be guided
by the policies of the journal’s editorial board and constrained by such legal requirements as
shall then be in force regarding libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The editor may
confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.
Fair play. An editor should evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard
to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship or political
philosophy of the authors.
Confidentiality. The editor and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a
submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential
reviewers, other editorial advisers and the publisher, as appropriate.
Disclosure and conflicts of interest. Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted
manuscript must not be used in an editor's own research without the express written consent
of the author.
Duties of Reviewers
Contribution to editorial decisions. Peer review assists the editor in making editorial
decisions and through the editorial communications with the author may also assist the author
in improving the paper.
Promptness. Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a
manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and
excuse himself from the review process.
Confidentiality. Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential
documents. They must not be shown to or discussed with others except as authorized by the
Standards of objectivity. Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the
author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting
Acknowledgement of sources. Reviewers should identify relevant published work that has not
been cited by the authors. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had
been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. A reviewer should
also call to the editor's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript
under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.
Disclosure and conflict of interest. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer
review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should not
consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive,
collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or
institutions connected to the papers.
Duties of Authors
Reporting standards. Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate
account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance.
Underlying data should be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain
sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or
knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable.
Data access and retention. Authors are asked to provide the raw data in connection with a
paper for editorial review, and should be prepared to provide public access to such data and
should in any event be prepared to retain such data for a reasonable time after publication.
Originality and plagiarism. Authors should ensure that submitted work is original and has not
been published elsewhere in any language, and if the authors have used the work and/or
words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.
Applicable copyright laws and conventions should be followed. Copyright material (e.g.
tables, figures or extensive quotations) should be reproduced only with appropriate
permission and acknowledgement.
Multiple, redundant or concurrent publication. An author should not in general publish
manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary
publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently
constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.
Acknowledgement of sources. Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be
given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of
the reported work.
Authorship of the paper. Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant
contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All
those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are
others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should
be acknowledged or listed as contributors.
The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate
co-authors are included on the paper, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final
version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.
Hazards and human or animal subjects. If the work involves chemicals, procedures or
equipment that have any unusual hazards inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify
these in the manuscript.
Disclosure and conflicts of interest. All authors should disclose in their manuscript any
financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the
results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project
should be disclosed.
Fundamental errors in published works. When an author discovers a significant error or
inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the
journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
