Russian Journal of Biotechnology For authors Declaration on publication ethics


The publisher of the Russian and English journal versions («Bioteckhnologuiya” and “Biotechnology in Russia”) support the same principles as other leading scholarly publishers. Those principles are described by Springer, a distributor of Russian Library of Science journals, in documents on publication ethics and unacceptable practices:

Springer Policy on Publishing Integrity

Publication Ethics

The publisher, editorial board and editorial office of the journal strive to guarantee the quality of the journal publications and follow the principle according to which the publisher bears the main responsibility for the integrity of scholarly publications. We do our best to help editors-in-chief, editors, and peer reviewers follow ethical standards accepted by major publishers and providers of scientific information. Adherence to standards is necessary to maintain high quality of scholarly publications, public trust in the results of scientific research, and author recognition.

The publisher of the English and Russian versions affirms that it is necessary to exclude falsification, plagiarism and self-plagiarism, duplicate submissions, multiple copying of similar information in different research papers, false authorship, and misrepresentation with respect to authors' impact on their publications.

In the English version, we select papers from original publications that have already passed all the stages of peer review. Editors, authors, and peer reviewers must report about their interests of financial, personal, political, religious, and/or intellectual character that may affect their fairness when submitting, editing, and reviewing manuscripts (conflict of interests). Peer reviewing must be objective.

For more information, we recommend the article Best Practice Guidelines on Publication Ethics: A Publisher's Perspective published in International Journal of Clinical Practice, Graf C., Wager E., Bowman A., et al. Int. J. Clin. Pract., 2007; 61 (s152):126.
