Duties of Authors and Publication Ethics

Authorship should be limited to but must include all those, who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the paper. The corresponding author ensures that the submission for publication of the manuscript in question has been approved by all of the authors and by their corresponding institutions.

The authors must ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others, that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.

The authors must ensure that no paper submitted to MENDEL has been published or is under consideration for publication in other journals (except as an abstract, a part of a lecture or an academic thesis).

Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. The citations must include all sources that have been used to determine the nature of the reported work. No extra sources, which have not been used, may be cited.

Authors of reports of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Any fraudulent or deliberately inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable.

All submissions must include disclosure of all relationships that could be viewed as presenting a potential conflict of interest.

If 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 by means of corrigendum or erratum.
