The publication of a paper in the peer-reviewed International Journal "Lighting Engineering & Power Engineering" is an important element in building a coherent and respected network of knowledge. This is a direct reflection of the quality of work. The reviewed papers process support and implement the scientific method. Therefore, it is important to agree on the standards of anticipated ethical behavior for all participants in the publication process: the author, editor of the journal, expert review, publisher and those journals that belong to the community or sponsored.

Publisher Responsibilities
We strive to ensure that advertising, reprinting or other commercial revenues do not affect the editorial decision to accept papers for publication. In addition, LEPE will help in communicating with other journals and / or publishers, if it is useful for editors. Finally, we work closely with other publishers and industry associations to set standards for best practices on ethical issues, errors and feedback, and prepared to provide specialized legal auditing and advice, if necessary. As a part of our commitment to protecting and enhancing the peer review process, LEPE is committed to providing assistance to the scientific community in all aspects of publication ethics, especially in cases of (suspicious) duplication of papers or plagiarism.

Rights and Responsibilities

In LEPE, we require the transfer of copyrights or, in some cases, exclusive rights from the authors of our journal to ensure that we have the rights necessary for the proper management of electronic rights and the online distribution of journal papers. The authors and their employers retain (or receive / pass back) significant scientific rights in their work. We take serious responsibility for online preservation to ensure the integrity of scientific papers and the durability of journal business models.

Compliance with standards
The authors of the original research materials should provide an accurate description of the performed work, as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Basic data must be accurately reflected in the work. The document must contain enough details and links to allow others to reproduce such work. Fraudulent or deliberately inaccurate statements are unethical behavior and inappropriate. The review and publication of professional publications should be accurate and objective, and editorial "thoughts" should be clearly defined.

Access and Data Saving
The editorial board may ask the author to provide additional information on the results of the research for editorial review. Authors should be prepared to provide the public access with such data, wherever possible, and in any case be prepared to store such data within a reasonable time after publication.

Originality and plagiarism
The authors must make sure that they have written entirely original works. If the authors used this work and / or the statements of others, this was duly indicated. Plagiarism takes many forms, from the "submission" of another article as an author's own document, to copying or re-framing significant parts of another document (without attribution) to claim the results of research conducted by others. Separately, we must warn about self-plagiarism, when the previous studies of the authors are presented to him as new or without proper quotation. Plagiarism in all its forms is unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.

Duplicate and submit articles to several publishers
The author should not generally publish manuscripts that essentially describe the same study in several journals or primary editions. The submission of the same manuscript to several magazines simultaneously represents the unethical behavior of the publishing house and is unacceptable. In general, the author should not submit a previously published document in another journal. The publication of certain types of articles (for example, recommendations, translations) in several journals is sometimes justified, subject to certain conditions. The authors and editors of the relevant journals must agree to a secondary publication, which should reflect the same data and interpretation of the original document. The basic reference should be in another post.

Understanding origin
It is always necessary to give proper confirmation of the work of other persons. Authors should refer to publications that have influenced the nature of the work presented. Information received privately, such as in conversation, correspondence or discussion with third parties, should not be used or communicated without explicit, written permission from the source. Information obtained during the performance of confidential duties, such as the review of manuscripts or applications for grants, should not be used without the written permission of the author of such work.

Prevention of hazards and objects that harm humans or animals
If the work involves the use of chemicals, procedures or equipment that have unusual dangers inherent in their use, the author must clearly identify them in the manuscripts. If the work involves the use of animals or objects by a person, the author must ensure that the manuscript contains a statement that all procedures are carried out in accordance with the relevant laws and institutional rules, and that the relevant institutional committees have approved them. Authors should include in the manuscript the statement that an informed consent was obtained to achieve experimentation with humans. Human rights must always be respected.

Personal images and personal information
Patient studies or volunteers require the approval of the ethical commission and informed consent that needs to be documented. Required permissions, permissions and releases must be obtained if the author wants to include in the LEPE case information or other personal information or images of patients and others. Written consent must be kept by the author, and copies of permissions or evidence that such consent has been obtained should be provided by LEPE upon request. Particular attention should be given to obtaining consent if it concerns children (in particular, if the child has special needs or needs training), where the head or person appears, or if the name of the person or other personal data is indicated.

Conflict of interest
A conflict of interest may exist when the author or institution of the author has financial or other relationships with other people or organizations that may inappropriately influence the work of the author. The conflict may be real or potential, and full disclosure of the magazine is the safest course. All submissions should include the disclosure of all relationships that may be considered as representing a potential conflict of interest. The journal may use such information as the basis for making editorial decisions and may publish such information if it is considered important for readers when assessing the manuscript. The magazine may not make a decision to publish on the basis of a declared conflict. At the end of the text under the subtitle "Statement of Disclosure", all authors should disclose any actual or potential conflicts of interest, including any financial, personal or other relationship with other people or organizations within (3) three years from the commencement of work that could improperly influence (bias) on their work. Examples of potential conflicts of interest to be disclosed include employment, consultancy, joint stock companies, remuneration, expert evidence paid, patent applications / registrations and grants or other funding. Potential conflicts of interest should be disclosed at the earliest stage. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed. This declaration (with the title "The role of the source of funding") should be made in a separate section of the text and placed before the links. The authors should describe the role of the sponsor of the study, if any, in the research project; in collecting, analyzing and interpreting data; in writing the report; and in the decision to file a document for publication.

Prevent errors in published works
When the author finds a significant error or inaccuracy in his own published work, the author must immediately notify the editor of the magazine or publisher and collaborate with the editor to recall or correct the article. If the editor or publisher learns from a third party that a published work contains a significant error, the author must promptly recall or correct the document or provide proof to the editor of the correctness of the original.

The authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the development, design, execution or interpretation of the reported research. Anyone who has made a significant contribution must be registered as a co-author. Where there are other persons who have participated in certain essential aspects of a research project, they must be recognized or indicated as participants. The appropriate author should make sure that all the rapporteurs and inappropriate collaborators are not included in this document and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the article and agreed to its submission for publication. As the author of the magazine, you and your institution or company retain the rights to use their own publications in the LEPE journal. These rights are retained without the need to obtain a special permission from the LEPE. These include:

  • The right to make copies (printed or electronic) of journal articles for personal use, including for use in the educational process;
  • The right to copy and distribute copies (including by e-mail) of a journal article for research by colleagues for the personal use of such colleagues for scientific purposes;
  • The right to publish a pre-release version of a journal article on web pages, including isolated servers, and to keep such a version on servers or sites for scientific purposes;
  • The right to publish a revised personal version of the text of the final article of the magazine on your personal or institutional web site or server for scientific purposes;
  • The right to use a magazine article or any part thereof in a collection of your works, for example, collected works or lecture notes.
