All parties: author, journal editor, peer reviewer and publisher should observe high standards with respect to publication ethics as set out by the Commission on Publication Ethics (COPE). Falsification or fabrication of data, plagiarism, including duplicate publication of the authors’ own work without proper citation, and misappropriation of the work are all unacceptable practices. Any cases of ethical misconduct are treated very seriously and will be dealt with in accordance with the COPE guidelines.

Authors Responsibilities

Changes to Authorship

Authorship can be changed only before a manuscript is accepted for publication. A request to add or remove an author, or to rearrange the author names, must be sent to the Editor by the corresponding author. A request must include:

If a request is incomplete the manuscript will be suspended until the Editor is informed that authorship has been agreed.


By submitting your manuscript to the journal it is understood that this it is an original manuscript and is unpublished work and is not under consideration elsewhere. Re-use of text, data, figures, or images without appropriate acknowledgment or permission is considered plagiarism, as is the paraphrasing of text, concepts, and ideas. All allegations of plagiarism are investigated thoroughly and in accordance with COPE guidelines detailed here.

Please note that all submissions are thoroughly checked for plagiarism. All submitted papers will be checked by Similarity Check Plagiarism Detection Service powered by iThenticate Software.

Any paper which shows obvious signs of plagiarism will be automatically rejected and authors will be permanently or temporarily forbidden to publish in the journal.


Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published before (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, or thesis) and that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

In order to reproduce any third-party material, including tables, figures, or images, in an article authors must obtain permission from the copyright holder and be compliant with any requirements the copyright holder may have pertaining to this reuse.

Evidence in writing that such permissions have been secured from the rights-holder must be made available to the Editors. It is also the author's responsibility to include acknowledgments as stipulated by the particular institutions.

It is particularly important to clear permission for use in both the print and online versions of the journal, and we are not able to accept permissions that carry a time limit because we retain journal articles as part of our online journal archive.


Nauka i tehnologija Editorial Board requires a declaration of any conflict of interest upon submission online. If the manuscript is published, conflict of interest information will be communicated in a statement in the published paper.


Standards for dealing with withdrawals or retractions have been developed by a number of library and scholarly bodies, and this practice has been adopted for paper withdrawal or retraction by Nauka i tehnologija.

In the electronic version of the original paper, a link is made to the withdrawal (retraction) note where it is clearly stated that the paper has been withdrawn (retracted). The original paper is retained unchanged; save for a watermark on the PDF indicating on each page that it is "withdrawn" or “retracted.”


The opinions expressed in Nauka i tehnologija are those of the authors and contributors and do not necessarily reflect those of the Editors, the Editorial Board, the Publisher, or the organization to which the authors are affiliated.

The Editor assumes no responsibility whatsoever, direct or implied, for the contents of the papers as well as for the consequences arising from misinterpretation or unawareness of the requirements for publication or any damages suffered by co-authors from actions or inactions of their corresponding author.
