The explanation of ghostwriting

Reliability of science is one of its qualitative foundations. Readers should be guaranteed that authors of publications present the results of their work in a clear, reliable and honest manner regardless of the fact whether they are the direct authors of publication or they took benefit of specialized help (natural or legal person).

Openness of information on any party contributing to preparation of a publication (content-related, material, financial, etc. input) is proof of ethical attitude of a research worker and of high   editorial   standards   and   that   is   an   indication   of   both   good   practice   and   social responsibility.

“Ghostwriting” and “guest authorship” are contradictory examples. “Ghostwriting” is a situation where a person contributes significantly to a publication and is not disclosed as one of the authors or named in the acknowledgments. 

“Guest authorship” (“honorary authorship”) is a situation where an author's contribution is insignificant or non existent and he is still listed as author/co-author of a publication. 

To prevent cases of “ghostwriting” and “guest authorship” editorial office of Central European Review of Economics & Finance implemented adequate procedures specific to discipline represented or implement the procedure specified below:

1. The editorial office requires authors to disclose contribution of individual authors to preparation of a publication (with a list of their affiliations) in detail, i.e. provide information on who is the author of concept, premises, methods, protocol etc. used in the publication. Main responsibility to disclose full information remains on author submitting manuscript. 

2. The editorial office explains in the “Instructions for authors” that “ghostwriting” and “guest authorship” are indication of scientific dishonesty and all cases will be exposed   and   adequate   institutions   will   be   informed   (employers,   scientific   societies, scientific editors associations, etc.)

3. The editorial office acquires information on sources of financing of a publication, financial   contributions   of   research   institutions,   scientific   associations   and   other (“financial disclosure”). 

4. The editorial office documents all indications of scientific dishonesty especially of violation of ethical principals followed in science.
