The editors of „Stan Rzeczy” are responsible for maintaining high academic standards, therefore the journal publishes exclusively academic articles that have never before seen print and which are the original work of their authors.
To achieve the above, in accordance with the standards set forth by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education and for the sake of academic integrity and to combat ‘ghost writing’ agencies, we require that all contributors sign a declaration of authorship that the work is the exclusive and original achievement of the author. Others who have contributed to the text must be disclosed and recorded. The author is, therefore, obliged to disclose the names and affiliations of co-authors and the nature of their contribution to the preparation of the publication. If an article is the result of collaborative work within the framework of a research project, the author is obliged to provide information on the sources of project funding, the contribution of research institutions, associations and other entities. Under no circumstances will the journal publish any papers whose authors do not follow the ethical standards accepted by the academic community. Any detected cases of research misconduct and dishonesty will be exposed – the author as well as the institution with which he/she is affiliated will be notified by the journal editor.
Should the authors discover fundamental errors in their work after publication in „Stan Rzeczy”, they are asked to inform the editor and provide appropriate corrections. The editors commit themselves to publishing retractions when necessary, in order for „Stan Rzeczy” to remain a reliable source of information.
Articles submitted to „Stan Rzeczy” are subject to a double-blind peer review procedure. With the purpose of enabling the reviewers to offer objective judgments the editors only collaborate with external and independent scholars. However, should any conflict of interest arise with respect to the author of the article being evaluated, reviewers are obliged to inform the journal editor. Also, they are asked to draw the editor’s and author’s attention to any relevant works that have not been cited in the article.
Reviewers are requested to consider the content of the article as confidential – it should not be used or cited without the author’s consent. The editors, for their part, will ensure that reviewers remain anonymous during the review procedure. Then, at the end of each year, a list of all the reviewers contributing to the past two issues will be published so as to manifest the high standing and the variety of scholars and institutions involved.
