- The author is required to disclose information about the sources of financing of the publication, the contribution of scientific and research institutions, associations and other entities (financial disclosure), especially when the text is the result of cooperation within the research project.

- The author is required to disclose information about all entities contributing to the publication of the scientific text (substantive contribution), giving their affiliation and contribution. The acknowledgments included in the footnote should mention all those who contributed to the final version of the article (linguistic consultation, literature indication, etc.).

- The author may not indicate the participation of the author, whose contribution to the creation of the article is insignificant or did not take place (guest authorship).

- legal consequences of dishonesty and scientific misconduct (plagiarism, ghostwriting, guest authorship, falsification of data, multiple publication, unauthorized citation) are borne by the author submitting the text for publication.
