Ethical standards

Editorial policy

Upon formation of the editorial polity the Journal bases itself on recommendations of international organizations for the ethics of academic publications:

Observance of the ethical norms and rules is mandatory for the participants of the process of publication of academic materials: authors, reviewers, members of the editorial board, editors and employees of the publishing house.

Upon emergence of suspicions of violation of any of the principles published below, the editorial board of the journal “Nauka televideniya” follows the instructions of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Editorial ethics

The editor-in-chief of the journal “Nauka televideniya” [“Television Scholarship”] carries out the supervision of the publication of the journal and its conception and, along with the other members of the editorial board, holds the responsibility for making the decision regarding the publication of the articles.

The editorial board together headed by the editor-in-chief of the journal holds the exclusive right of accepting/rejecting manuscripts for publication.

Requirements for publication

  • novelty of research
  • academic quality
  • correspondence of the article to the format of publication and its overall mission

Original articles form the priority of the journal

Multiple (double) and repeated publications in the journal “Nauka televideniya” [“The Art and Science of Television”]are not permitted, with the exception of reviews on significant scholarly events and academic publications.
Authors are required to notify the board of directors of any previously made publications of the presented text (the thesis of the dissertation, theses of conferences, the presentation of a previously published article), which shall help the editors to decide whether it would be possible to relate the submitted manuscript to multiple (double) publication.

Peer Reviewing Process

Order of examination of manuscripts

Each text submitted to the journal for consideration of a possible publication is passed upon the decision of the editorial board for Peer Reviewing to 3 members of the editorial board / editorial counsil board the academic activities of which corresponds to the greatest degree to the profile of the material subject to examination. Two responses are prepared according to the principle of double blind Peer Reviewing (the reviewer and the authors of the manuscript do not have access to crossover information) and the one other – as a one-sided blind person (the author or authors of the manuscript do not have any access to personal information about the reviewer).

For this aim the authors submit their article to the board of directors in two versions: completely documented and depersonalized, i.e. without any affiliation with the author, including references to texts of which he or she is the author or co-author, or on independent texts of coauthors with whom he or she was in intellectual partnership.

It is forbidden to exert any influence on the evaluation of articles from the point of social, political or economic situation, as is the possibility of discrimination of the author’s rights on the basis of sex, race, nationality, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religious belief, citizenship (or absence of citizenship), political views or social status.

When necessary, profile specialists who are not members of the editorial expert board are invited; in this case the principle of two reviews with one-sided and double blinded reviewing are used.

Upon divergence of the opinions of the experts the article is passed for two additional reviews performed by outer specialists according to the principle of correspondingly the one-sided and the double blind Peer Reviewing.

The reviews for each article are preserved during the course of 10 years.

Public academic dialogue

The journal is interested in constant activation of scholarly discussion, so the brightest comments, including those of a critical profile, in case of the editorial board making the decision to publish the article, are placed in the subsequent issue as an academic publication.

If there is a review prepared according to the principle of double blind Peer Reviewing, the author of such a review gives his or her preliminary consent for such a publication. If consent is not given, the review is not published in the issue.

The author of a Peer Reviewed article has the right to give his or her response (in the present or the subsequent issue of the publication) to the review published in the journal.

Upon necessity, with the aim in mind to enhance the academic quality of the published materials and to preserve ethical standards the journal publishes corrections, clarifications or apologies, as well as letters to the editors on the pages of the publication and/or on its official website.

The rights of the Editorial Board

The editor-in-chief and the editorial board reserve the right not to accept works formatted with deviations from the rules established in the journal and violating the requirements exerted on the authors of the articles.

The manuscript may be rejected on the stage preceding the Peer Reviewing, if there are weighty reasons present for this:

  • the subject matter of the article does not correspond to the research directions of the journal
  • the article has previously been published in another edition
  • the article contains obvious signs of low quality
  • in the submitted materials there is an essential contradiction to the ethical principles which the journal adheres to
  • all the submitted manuscripts not rejected for the aforementioned reasons at the first stage are passed on to reviewers

Responsibility of the Reviewer

Each disputable incident is an object for special examination of the editorial board.


The reviewer may be expelled from the team of the editorial board / editorial expert board / pool of reviewers from outside in the following cases:

  • upon their own wishes, confirmed by a litter to the editorial board of the journal
  • in the case of establishment of the fact of a non-objective review
  • upon publication of any text bearing obvious indications of violation of academic ethics (plagiarism, academic forgery, etc.)

Conflicts of interests

Upon cases of conflicts of interest of the reviewer/editor with the author of the manuscript, about which the first is required immediately to notify the members of the editorial board, the manuscript must be passed to another reviewer/editor.

In the case of a member of the editorial board / editorial expert board submitting an article for publication in the journal, the article is subject to mandatory Peer Reviewing by two specialists, one of which is a member of the journal’s editorial expert board (double blind Peer Reviewing), and the other is a specialist from outside following the profile of the presumed publication (one-sided blind Peer Reviewing).

If there is a divergence of opinions of the experts, the article is passed for two additional reviews written by specialists who are not members of the editorial board upon an analogous principle – one-sided and double blind Peer Reviewing.

The final decision regarding the contested material is made at a session of the journal’s editorial board headed by its editor-in-chief (without consideration of the opinion of the author of the discussed article).

Plagiarism, academic forgery, retraction of articles

Upon discovery of plagiarism, which is understood as inclusion into the material presented for consideration of publication material of borrowed text without links to the source from where the facts/ideas were derived, and/or academic forgery interpreted as an indubitable representation in the texts of facts relating to a different fact/event/phenomenon, the article is rejected without the right of repeated submission, while its author is placed into the list of researchers whose materials are barred from publication in the journal.
