"Ghostwriting barrage"

According to the guidelines of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, a "ghostwriting barrage" is in place to counter "ghostwriting" and "guest authorship." Readers should be sure that the authors of the publication present honestly the results of their work, regardless of whether they are direct authors, or whether they have benefited from a specialized entity (natural or legal person). "Ghostwriting" is a case where someone made a significant contribution to a publication without disclosing his or her participation as one of the authors. The "guest authorship" ("authorship") is based on the consideration of a particular person as an author or co-author, even though his or her participation was negligible or not at all. Both attitudes are a manifestation of scientific misconduct.


To prevent these phenomena:

  1. Editors require to disclose the contribution of individual authors to the publication (including their affiliation and information about who is the author of the concepts, assumptions, methods, etc. used in the preparation of the publication). The author of the article has main responsibility.
  2. Any uncovered scientific misconduct will be disclosed, including notification to the relevant bodies (institutions employing authors, associations, etc.).
  3. The authors of the publication are obliged to inform the editors about the subjects that contributed to the creation of the publication and about the substantive and financial contributions of the research centers,
  4. The editors document all manifestations of scientific misconduct, especially violations of ethical rules in science.
