Scientific journal New Technologies in Construction maintains the ethical standards of scientific publications and takes all possible steps to prevent fraudulent publications. All articles submitted for publication in the scientific journal "New Technologies in Construction" are peer-reviewed for originality, ethics and relevance.
Compliance with ethical standards is important for all parties involved in the publication: authors, journal editors, reviewers, and publishers.
These provisions are based on the Good Practice Guidelines of Scientific Publications of the Scientific Publications Ethics Committee.
Duties of the Editorial Board
The editor always evaluates the intellectual content of the manuscripts, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, nationality, or political philosophy of the authors.
The editor or any other member of the editorial staff should not disclose any information about the submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, since it is private.
Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest
Unpublished materials identified in the submitted manuscript should not be used in the editor's own research without the express written consent of the author.
Duties of reviewers
Any selected reviewer who feels unqualified to review the study contained in the manuscript, or who knows that a quick review will be impossible, should notify the editor and relieve himself of the reviewer's responsibility.
Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They should not be shown or discussed with anyone other than those authorized by the editor.
Review should be objective. The author's personal criticism is inadmissible. Reviewers should express their reasoning clearly and with arguments.
Duties of authors
Originality and plagiarism
Authors should ensure that they have written completely original works. If authors have used the work and / or words of other authors, this should be cited or quoted accordingly.
Repeated, redundant or competing publications
The author should not publish papers describing essentially the same study more than once or in more than one journal. Submitting one manuscript to more than one journal at the same time means unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.
Confirmation of sources
Proper acknowledgment of the work of other authors is required. Authors should cite publications that were relevant when creating the claimed work.
Authorship of the material
Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the concept, project, execution or interpretation of the work claimed. Anyone who has made significant contributions should be included in the list of contributors.
