Retraction Policy

In case of violation of the rights of publisher, copyright holders or authors, violation of professional ethical codes, i.e. in the case of sending the same paper to several journals at the same time, false claims of authorship, plagiarism, manipulation of data for the purpose of fraud, as well as in all other cases of gross violation of ethical standards, the published paper must be withdrawn. Already published work can be withdrawn with a special indication that it will be published in one of the next issues of the journal. The work can also be withdrawn in order to correct serious errors and deficiencies that cannot be covered by the publication of a correction. The paper withdrawal is published by the editor-in-chief or the author(s) or by agreement of both parties.

Standards for resolving situations when work must be withdrawn have been defined by libraries and scientific bodies, and the same practice has been adopted by the journal European Legislation. Retractions are published according to the requirements of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), developed by the Center for Evaluation in Education and Science (CEON) as the publisher of the base in which the journal should be primarily indexed, which implies that the retraction has the form of a separate paper that appears in the volume’s contents and is editorially classified as “Withdrawal” or “Retraction”.
