Publication ethics

The editorial ethics of the journal is based on ethical principles supported by the world community of publishers of scientific periodicals, the requirements of the copyright laws of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the recommendations developed by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Basic principles of the editorial office:

  • objectivity and impartiality in the selection of articles for publication;
  • high requirements for the quality of scientific research;
  • collegiality in making decisions on the publication of articles;
  • availability and efficiency in communication with authors;
  • strict observance of copyright and related rights;
  • strict adherence to the schedule of the journal release.

The editorial board does not support all kinds of offenses (plagiarism, manipulation, falsification) and is categorically against them. In order to improve the quality of scientific publications, the editorial board recommends that authors beware of publishing deliberately false information, falsified data, plagiarism, as well as other violations of scientific ethics that impede the objective recognition of scientific achievements by the public environment.

All participants in the publication process, namely, each author, scientific editor, reviewer, executive secretary, members of the editorial board of the scientific journal “Otan tarikhy” must unconditionally adhere to the principles, norms and standards of publication ethics.

The grounds for refusal to accept materials are plagiarism, inconsistency with the profile of the series of the scientific journal and negative review. Materials that do not meet the basic technical requirements for the design of the article, as well as materials containing slander, offensive attacks against colleagues, and copyright violations are not accepted.

The originality of the article is checked in the anti-plagiarism system StrikePlagiarism (the threshold is 75%).

In case of non-compliance with the norm of originality, the article is sent for revision with a printout of the verification report. In case if the article has not been corrected or, after revision, again does not comply with the norms of originality, the members of the editorial board make a decision about its inadmissibility for publication.

All materials are accepted for publication only on the basis of a collegial decision of the members of the editorial board.

The members of the editorial board equally participate in the formation of the content of the issue of “Otan tarikhy” journal.
