The editorial board of the journal is responsible for making a decision on the publication of articles received by the editorial board.

The editorial ethics of the scientific journal "Art Education and Science" of the Russian State Specialized Academy of Arts is based on the recommendations of international organizations on the ethics of scientific publications.

All participants in the preparation of materials for publication (authors, reviewers, members of the editorial board, representatives of the publisher) must follow the standards of publication ethics set out below.

In cases of suspicion of violation of any of these principles, the editorial board and the editorial board of the journal follow COPE instructions .


1. Principles of professional ethics in the activities of the editorial board and the publisher.

The editorial board and editorial board (editor-in-chief) in their activities are guided by the requirements of the legislation of the Russian Federation in relation to copyright, adhere to ethical principles supported by the community of leading publishers of scientific periodicals, are responsible for the publication of copyrighted works, which makes it necessary to implement the following principles:

  • the relevance and originality of the published article;
  • the reliability of the results and the scientific significance of the published work;
  • recognition of the contribution of other authors to the problems under consideration with obligatory bibliographic references to the materials used;
  • presentation as co-authors of all persons who have made a certain contribution to the creation of the text and approved it;
  • immediate adoption of measures to correct errors and inaccuracies in the articles discovered by the author or identified by the editorial board in order to prevent their publication.

Unpublished data obtained from submitted manuscripts cannot be used or transferred to third parties without the written consent of their authors.

Information or ideas obtained during editing must be kept confidential.

The editor has no right to allow information to be published if there is reason to believe that it is plagiarized or contains materials prohibited for publication. Where necessary, the editorial board is ready to publish corrections, clarifications, denials and apologies.

The editor, together with the publisher, cannot leave unanswered claims regarding the reviewed manuscripts or published materials, and in a conflict situation must take the necessary measures to restore violated rights.

2. Principles of ethics in the work of the reviewer

The journal uses double-blind peer-review in accordance with its policy.

The actions of the reviewer carrying out scientific examination of copyright materials must be impartial, which is expressed in the observance of the following conditions:

  • the manuscript received for review is considered as a confidential document that cannot be transferred for review or discussion to third parties without the permission of the editorial board;
  • the reviewer is obliged to give an objective and reasoned assessment of the article;
  • personal criticism of the author is unacceptable;
  • unpublished data contained in the submitted manuscripts cannot be used by the reviewer for personal purposes.

A reviewer who, in his opinion, does not have sufficient qualifications to evaluate the manuscript or cannot be objective (for example, in the event of a conflict of interest with the author or organization), must inform the editor about this and ask him to be released from reviewing this manuscript.

3. The principles of ethics in the activities of the author of scientific publications

The author (or a group of authors) bears personal responsibility for the relevance, novelty and reliability of the content of the article, which implies compliance with the following conditions:

  • knowingly erroneous or falsified statements are unacceptable;
  • description of exclusively real facts, events, assumptions, etc.;
  • obligatory registration of the source of fragments or thoughts of other persons borrowed from publications with an indication of authorship;
  • excessive borrowing is unacceptable, as well as plagiarism of any kind, including unformed quotes, paraphrasing or appropriating other people's thoughts;
  • providing links to all works that were of importance when writing the article;
  • inadmissibility of submission to the journal of a manuscript sent to another journal and being in it under consideration, as well as an article previously published in another publication;
  • an indication of the co-authorship of all persons who have made a certain contribution to the creation of the article;
  • it is unacceptable to indicate as co-authors of persons who did not participate in the creation of the article;
  • if any distortions or inaccuracies are found at the stage of consideration or after the publication of an article, it is necessary to notify the editorial board of the journal as soon as possible.

All materials published in the magazine are subject to copyright (including design). Their distribution and copying (as well as copying to other sites and resources on the Internet) or any other use of information and objects without the prior consent of the copyright holder is prohibited. Copyright extends to all articles published in the journal, is protected by law and can be protected by the author in court.


  1. The publication of the original article is a top priority for the journal. Multiple (double) and secondary publication in the scientific journal "Art Education and Science" is prohibited. Multiple (double, multiple, redundant, duplicate) publication is understood as the publication of an article, the content of which largely coincides with the content of a work already published in a print or electronic edition. Secondary publication is a republishing of an article previously published in this journal.
  2. When submitting a manuscript to the editorial office, the authors should notify the editor-in-chief of any earlier publications of the submitted text (dissertation abstract, conference abstracts, presentation of an earlier published article, book chapters). Copies of such materials should be attached to the submitted article, which will help the editors decide whether the submitted article can be classified as a multiple (double) publication.
  3. The editors reserve the right to check for the publication of other articles by authors in international information databases. If it is found that the authors are trying to submit a secondary or duplicate publication without such notice, the editors have the right to refuse to consider the manuscript. If, after publication in the journal, it is established that a similar article was published in other publications and the authors did not inform the editors about this, a message will be published in the next issue stating that this publication is multiple, with or without an explanation or confirmation of the authors.
  4. Re-publications are carried out in strict accordance with international copyright laws, ethical standards and at the discretion of the editorial board.


1. General provisions

The Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) defines a conflict of interest in its Guidelines as: A conflict of interest occurs when authors, reviewers, or editors have an implicit interest that could influence their judgment of published material. A potential conflict of interest arises when there are financial, personal, or professional conditions that could affect the scientific judgment of the reviewer or editor and, as a result, the decision of the editorial board regarding the publication of the article.

2. Obligations regarding conflicts of interest

The scientific journal "Art Education and Science" does not require a formal declaration of a conflict of interest. However, it is assumed that, when submitting an article to the editorial board of the journal, the author declares that:

  • all sources of research funding are indicated in the text of the article;
  • there are no commercial, financial, personal or professional factors that could create a conflict of interest in relation to the submitted article.

If there is a conflict of interest, the author may:

  • ask to exclude any particular editor and / or reviewer from the review process of the article sent by him;
  • when submitting an article for consideration by the editorial board, make an explicit statement about a possible conflict of interest in the text of the cover letter.

Editors and reviewers should declare potential conflicts of interest that could influence the editorial board's decision.

If there is a conflict of interest between the editor or reviewer and the author of the article, the article is transferred to another reviewer.

The presence of a conflict of interest, which is declared by any of the participants in the review and review process, does not mean a refusal to publish.

All stakeholders should avoid any form of conflict of interest at all stages of the article's going to press. In the event of a conflict of interest in any form, the person who first discovered such a conflict must immediately inform the editor about it. The same applies to any violation of generally accepted ethical norms and rules.


In some cases, the editorial board of the journal may decide to withdraw the article (retraction).

Reasons for withdrawing an article from the publisher:

  • detection of plagiarism in an article before or after its publication, including the establishment of borrowings of figures, graphs, tables, etc .;
  • the emergence of claims regarding copyright for the article or its individual parts from third parties;
  • discovery of the fact of publication of an article in another publication before the date of its publication in the journal;
  • the presence of serious errors in the published article that cast doubt on its scientific value.

In such circumstances, the editorial board initiates a review, as a result of which the article may be withdrawn from publication. An act on the withdrawal of the article from publication is drawn up, which is signed by the editor-in-chief. A copy of the act is sent to the author of the article.

At the same time, the article is not physically removed from the published circulation and from the site. The editorial board publishes a statement on the withdrawal of the article with its placement on the corresponding page of the official website of the journal.

The editors will carefully and responsibly consider all reasonable appeals regarding violations found in published materials.

The editors consider it the responsibility of the author and reviewer to inform the editors as quickly as possible about the missed errors and violations that they identified after the publication of the article.


The purpose of the article recall (retraction) is to correct the published information and notify readers about publications that contain inaccurate data, which may be the result of a bona fide error or deliberate violations.

The revocation of an article is carried out at the official request of the editorial board of the journal or the author and is made in the following cases:

  • duplication of publications, submission of the same articles to several editions;
  • plagiarism;
  • concealment of important conflicts of interest that may affect the interpretation of the data or recommendations for its use.
  • The issue of withdrawing a publication is considered in the following cases:
  • the presence of clear evidence of the unreliability of the published information, which arose either as a result of data falsification, or because of errors in calculations or experiments;
  • publication of findings earlier in another publication in the absence of proper reference, permission and justification for the need to re-publish (that is, in the case of duplication of publication);
  • plagiarism;
  • descriptions of unethical research.
  • The editors consider the issue of amendments if:
  • a small part of a quality publication turns out to be unreliable (due to bona fide mistakes);
  • the list of authors / sponsors contains errors (it lacks who the real author is, or includes a person who does not meet the criteria for authorship).
  • The editorial board notifies the author / authors of the revocation. This review must contain:
  • clear identification of the revoked article (the name of the author and the title of the article in the title of the revocation notice);
  • an indication of the persons revoking the article;
  • the reasons for the withdrawal;
  • hyperlinks to the revoked article (in all electronic versions).

If the revocation is related to the actions of several, but not all, authors of the publication, the revocation notice will inform you of this fact.

A revocation is inappropriate if a change in attribution is required, but there is no reason to doubt the validity of the conclusions.

The revocation notice is published as soon as possible in all printed and electronic versions of the journal (to minimize the negative consequences of false publications), is freely available to all readers and does not contain potentially defamatory or defamatory statements.

If plagiarism is found in a small part of the article (for example, in several sentences), amendments are made to the article with correct links to the source. If a duplicate publication is found, its text is withdrawn by all editions that published the material, while one of the versions of the text (usually the earliest) will not be withdrawn from the publication.

In exceptional cases, when duplication of an article serves a specific purpose, an amendment is made to the repeated article with a footnote to the original source and the reason for duplication (for example, expanding the readership due to the specific thematic audience of the publication).

The editorial staff of the journal expresses concern if:

  • information about inappropriate actions of the authors was received, but there is no clear evidence of such their behavior;
  • there are arguments that the results of the work are unreliable, and the institution in which the authors work is not going to find out the truth;
  • the investigation of the alleged violations committed by the authors in connection with the publication has either not been or will not be fair, impartial and convincing;
  • the results of the ongoing investigation into the authors' violations are not expected soon enough.
  • Full name of the author and title of the article;
  • the name of the publication from which the text is withdrawn;
  • the initiator of the article revocation;
  • the basis for the revocation of the article and the date of the decision;
  • link to the page on the website of the publication, which provides information on retraction;
  • article imprint and DOI (if any);
  • subject of the article.

If the author / group of authors find it necessary to withdraw the article, they contact the editorial office, explaining the reason for their decision. If you agree to retraction, the editorial staff independently retracts the text.

When deciding to revoke a text on the basis of its expertise or the information received, the editorial board informs the author or the group of authors about this decision. The author (lead author in the case of collective authorship) is invited to familiarize himself with the wording justifying the retraction of the article.

If a decision is made to withdraw an article, the editorial board indicates the reason and date of retraction. The article and the description of the article remain on the journal's website as part of the corresponding issue with the inscription WITHDRAWAL / RETRACTED and the date of retraction. The same mark is placed with the article in the table of contents of the issue.

If the author / group of authors ignores the decision to withdraw the journal, the editorial board reserves the right to apply to the Council for Ethics of Scientific Publications and the scientific information base (NEB, Cyber. Leninka).

In this case, the Ethics Council is provided with a protocol, which indicates the date of the meeting, the composition of the editorial board present at the meeting, the results of the examination, a reasoned decision and a completed form, which indicates:

Information about the retracted articles is transmitted to the ANRI Scientific Publications Ethics Council (for inclusion in the database of retracted articles) and to the NEL ( Information about the article and its full text remain on, but supplemented with information on retraction. Withdrawn articles and links to them are excluded from the RSCI and do not participate in the calculation of indicators.

In cases where it is necessary, the editors are ready to publish corrections, clarifications, refutations and apologies.

Plagiarism and editorial tactics

Authors submitting articles to the editor ensure that the submitted manuscript is the original work. If authors have used the work and / or text fragments of other authors and / or their publications, they must indicate the appropriate links to the published work.

If there is an incorrect borrowing in the received article, all cases of such borrowing are considered individually.

In the case of reasonable suspicions of plagiarism or detection of techniques to hide its presence, articles are not accepted for further consideration. The authors are sent a message about the refusal to consider the article due to the presence of suspicion of plagiarism. If plagiarism is found in an already published article, such an article is disavowed without the possibility of restoring its status (without physically removing the article, by publishing the relevant documents and materials on the pages of the site and in the journal).

Signs of plagiarism are different forms of its presence in the text: from presenting someone else's work as the author's to copying or paraphrasing significant parts of someone else's works (without attribution) and to claiming their own rights to the results of other people's research.

Intentional misappropriation of authorship of someone else's work of science or art, someone else's ideas or inventions is a violation of copyright law and patent law and, as such, may entail not only moral, but also legal liability.

The editors include the following forms of plagiarism:

  • use (literal citation) of any materials in any volume without indicating the source;
  • use of images, drawings, photographs, tables, graphs, diagrams and any other forms of graphical presentation of information without specifying the source;
  • use of images, drawings, photographs, tables, graphs, diagrams and any other forms of graphic presentation of information published in scientific and popular publications without the consent of the copyright holder (if necessary);
  • use without written permission of materials, the authors or copyright holders of which prohibit the use of their materials without special consent.
  • The editors include the following forms of incorrect borrowing:
  • links not to the first source of the borrowed text without an explicit indication of this fact (error in the definition of the original source);
  • incomplete bibliographic description of sources, which prevents their identification;
  • the absence in the text of references to sources given in the bibliography;
  • excessive citation (if there are references to sources), the volume of which is not justified by the genre and goals of the article.

If the editorial board has grounds for a more detailed check, additional tools for detecting borrowings may be involved.

Articles in which signs of technical modifications were found in order to artificially increase the uniqueness of the text will not be published in the journal even if revised. The editorial board informs the reviewer of all such facts and, if the author works in an educational institution, his management.
