Editorial Ethics

Posted in Terra Artis(EN)

The Terra artis. Art and Design publishes original research that is representative of the level of contemporary art studies in Russia and abroad. The journal seeks to highlight the latest trends in art and design and to showcase the best examples.

Journal editorial ethics are a set of principles and rules that all those  involved in the process of academic publishing — authors, reviewers, editors, publishers, distributors and readers — should adhere to.


The Editorial Board is guided by the modern legal requirements of the Russian legislation regarding copyright and plagiarism and the ethical principles shared by the community of publishers of leading academic periodicals, and is responsible for the publication of copyrighted works.

The editorial policy of the journal Terra Artis. Art and Design follows the recommendations of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Ethical principles in the activities of the Editorial Board and the publisher:

  • the relevance and novelty of the research
  • the reliability of results and the significance of the research work
  • references to the contributions from other researchers who have researched the same or related theme and mandatory inclusion of bibliographical references to the works used
  • all the contributors who made a significant contribution to the research must be listed as co-authors and the work submitted for publication must be approved by all the co-authors.
  • prompt action should be taken to correct significant errors and inaccuracies identified by the author(s) or by the editorial board.

Unpublished data contained in manuscripts submitted for review are not used or disclosed to third parties without the written consent of the author(s). Information or ideas obtained during the editing process are kept confidential.

The Editorial Board does not permit the publication of information if there are reasons to believe it is plagiarism or if it contains materials prohibited from being published.

The Editorial Board will not leave unattended complaints about the reviewed manuscripts or published materials, and in case of a conflict, it takes all necessary measures to restore the violated rights.

Ethical principles in the activities of the reviewer

The reviewer assessing author’s research  materials should be impartial and adhere to the following principles:

  • manuscripts received for review are considered as confidential documents and cannot be passed on for review or discussion by third parties who do not have the appropriate authority from the editorial board
  • the reviewer is obliged to provide an objective and fair assessment of the research results presented; personal criticism of the author is unacceptable
  • unpublished data obtained from manuscripts submitted for review will not be used for personal purposes
  • a reviewer who, in their opinion, does not possess sufficient qualifications for assessing a manuscript or cannot be objective, for example, due to a conflict of interest with the author or the organisation, must inform the editor and ask to be excluded from reviewing the manuscript

Ethical principles in the activities of the author


The author (or group of authors) recognise(s) their responsibility for the novelty and reliability of research results and adhere(s) to the following principles:

  • authors must provide reliable results of their research; intentionally wrong or falsified statements are unacceptable
  • authors must guarantee that the research results presented in the manuscript are entirely original
  • borrowed fragments or statements must be accompanied by author and source attribution. Excessive borrowing, plagiarism in any form, including hidden and veiled forms, unattributed quotes, paraphrasing, or appropriation of the results of someone else’s research, are unethical and unacceptable
  • contributions from all individuals who influenced the course of the research in any way must be acknowledged. Specifically, the manuscript must include references to works that were instrumental to the present research process.
  • authors must not submit manuscripts that have been submitted to another journal or have been accepted for review by another journal or have been previously published
  • all individuals who made significant contributions to the research must be listed as co-authors
  • individuals who did not participate in the research will not be listed as co-authors
  • If the author discovers significant errors or inaccuracies in the article during the review process or after its publication, they must promptly notify the journal's Editorial
