The purpose of developing these recommendations, the Committee on Ethics of Scientific Publications (Committee of Publication Ethics) was founded in 1997 in order to streamline the presentation of the ethics of scientific research and publications. It is a voluntary consultative discussion organization involved in the development of various aspects of good practice research and publications. It is extremely important to define good practice and high ethical scientific publications. These recommendations are intended for authors, editors, editorial board members, readers, owners of journals and publishers. Integrity and high ethical standards are needed at all stages organizing and conducting biomedical research, reporting their findings; this approach ensures the detection and prevention of unfair practices publications.
And that was the main aim of developing these recommendations. The Appendix lists other guides dedicated to ethical and legal aspects of biomedical research or evaluation, as well as the requirements for the quality of scientific publications. How were the first recommendation, each member prepared a preliminary version of its recommendations, then based on them was developed by a single final document submitted for approval. At the same time discussed in detail the Committee's views on the structure of studies, the procedure for their approval of the ethics committees, data analysis, authorship, conflict of interest, reviewing, duplicating papers, plagiarism, responsibilities of editors, the relationship with the media, advertising, and measures for the prevention of unfair practices research and publish their results. As we see the future of these Recommendations These recommendations are not a dogma but a guide to action, they must be continually improved.
