Publication Ethics


1. The annual academic journal Linguodidactica accepts submissions of original, previously unpublished texts.

2. Ethical guidelines are based on the COPE Committee on Publication Ethics, Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors, and COPE Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers.

3. Authors are understood as those who have made a significant contribution to the research study at any of its stages. All contributors must be credited and must approve of the final version of the article. Before submitting a paper, authors must submit a statement in which they provide information about the co-authors, especially their names, affiliation, and role in the research study. All cases of ghostwriting and guest authorships will be made public, and relevant bodies notified.

4. Authors are obliged to supply details required by the funding sources, disclose any other institutional support, and reveal any conflicts of interest.

5. Authors are obliged to immediately inform the editorial board about discovering any errors or inaccuracies in the submitted article. 

6. Authors retain unlimited authorship rights. Authors grant a non-exclusive and royalty-free license to the editorial board to publish a manuscript. Copyright regulations are specified in the publishing agreement.

7. The decision which articles are to be published is based on the scientific profile of the journal. 8. The decision cannot be based on the author’s affiliation, nationality, gender, ethnicity, or political or religious views. The editor-in-chief makes the decision based on the reviews and the judgement of guest-editors, language editors, and the editorial board.

9. Any violation of the journal’s ethical guidelines will result in the rejection of the article.

The editorial board abides by the latest legal regulations regarding defamation and copyright infringement, including plagiarism.
