Publication Ethics

We only accept original articles not published or submitted for publication elsewhere (not even in a modified version). In case that an article follows a previous publication, the older article must be properly cited and the author has to make clear what is new and how it extends the previous one.

The corresponding author is responsible for obtaining an approval from all the co-authors to submit the manuscript to E-psychologie. All the co-authors should substantially contribute to the design of the study, the acquisition, analyses, or interpretation of data, or drafting of the manuscript.

The corresponding author is responsible for the data and their availability. Thus the data should be the result of the authors’ research, available without restrictions on public databases, or be officially provided to the authors by their owners. E-psychologie is unequivocally opposed to the falsification or biased modification of data and data representations.

The corresponding author is also responsible for the rights to publish images and other graphic representations that he/she submits as part of the manuscript for publication. Authors are requested to include only such figures, graphs, and other accompanying materials to which they have rights and are free to dispose of. If there are identifiable people in the images, their written permission to publish is required.

Authors of research, review, and methodological studies should take care of the reproducibility of their work when conducting the study and preparing the manuscript.

All parties in publishing – the publisher, editors, reviewers, and authors – must follow certain standards of ethical behaviour. E-psychologie and its publisher, the Czech Moravian Psychological Society, endorse the COPE Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors and the Code of Conduct for Journal Publishers.

Publication Malpractice Statement
If an author breaks ethical principles for publication and does not respect the rule of prior publication, the article will be withdrawn with a comment on this matter.
