Ethical principles
In the interest of the authors' welfare, SHAGH's editorial board has defined the principles of scientific publication ethics in accordance with the guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics. The rules for editors, reviewers and authors have been established.

The editorial board is committed to
1. respect the principle of impartiality. The texts are evaluated from the substantive and formal point of view, so the author's personal characteristics (gender, age, ethnic origin, sexual orientation or political views) are not taken into account.
2. respect confidentiality. The information about the author, reviewers, scientific consultants are available only to the members of the editorial board.
3. In order to avoid conflicts of interest, the members of the editorial board shall not publish their texts in the quarterly magazine which they themselves edit.
4. The members of the editorial board shall not, without the consent of the authors publishing in the quarterly, use the texts sent to the editorial board which have not been published.
5. The editorial board publishes the texts under legal responsibility for their content. This means that texts containing defamatory, plagiarism or autoplagiarism content will not be published in the SHAGH quarterly.

The reviewers are obliged to
1. comply with the principle of impartiality, confidentiality and to prevent situations which may give rise to conflict, e.g. conviction that the author of the assessed text has been recognised.
2. work on improving the quality of the text.
3. respect timeliness.
4. avoid aggressive and personal criticism of the author.
5. reveal suspicion of plagiarism or fraudulent quotation of other people's works.

The authors are obliged to
1. submit author's texts, i.e. texts which are the result of their independent (or team) work.
2. submit works which have not yet been published either in part or entirety.
3. maintain the integrity of research in the presentation of research results.
4. precise quotation of other authors' views and sources of information,
5. provide information in case third parties who are not the co-authors of the submitted article collaborated in the research work.
