The main ethical principles, the observance of which is mandatory for all parties involved in publishing and publishing the magazine, are the following:

1. Authorship

Authorship is a significant intellectual contribution to scientific work, a role in writing the article and revising its final version; but it may vary to a certain extent. Who will be the authors, and in what order, should be determined by the participants in scientific work. All authors should take responsibility for the writing and authenticity of the information in the article and only one of them should guarantee and take responsibility for the whole article.

2. Major posting errors

When an author discovers a material mistake or inaccuracy in his work, it is his duty to immediately notify the editor of the magazine or the publisher and assist the editor in the withdrawal or correction of the work. If the editor or publisher learns from a third party that the published work contains a major mistake, it is the duty of the author to immediately withdraw or correct his work or provide the editor with proof of the authenticity of the original work.

3. Revision

Reviewers are experts selected by Visual Editors to provide a written assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of a job in order to improve and identify the most appropriate and best quality material for the magazine. Typically, reviewers selected by the magazine have experience with original scientific papers and publication.

4. Editorial solutions

Decisions to approve a material and its future publication are based on its importance and importance, originality and clarity, as well as its relevance to the scope and content of the magazine. If it is subsequently found that a published article has errors and / or drawbacks, the editor assumes responsibility for correcting them.

5. Originality

Visual materials are published in the Visual Studies magazine, which is not published elsewhere. Re-publishing in another language or simultaneously publishing in several different magazines with different audiences can be accepted provided there is a declaration of the original source when submitting the article to the editorial team. During the submission of the article to the editors, the authors should submit in detail all their articles related to the material already published, even if they are in another language, all their author articles published on this subject in the press, all their author's articles this topic, published in the past, even those that are under seal.
