Overview | 

Starting from the analysis of the papers received for evaluation in order to be published by LUMEN Publishing House, and the previous editions of LUMEN Conferences, we notice there are at least some of the young researchers who have a series of questions regarding the strategies of elaborating a scientific paper in order to be published in a volume/journal with international audience.

In this workshop, we will discuss a number of specific aspects of research publishing, and how these aspects are reflected in the work of international fora in publication ethics – such as COPE – Committee of Publication Ethics.

Starting from specific case studies related to the issue of originality of  scientific contributions, we will address the following topics: Who is an author and how authorship, (co)authorship or multiple authorship are defined in different research areas; what are the ethical requirements of writing a scientific paper; what duplicate content means; what are (or can be) the ethical standards that help increase the quality of scientific works; what plagiarism means.

We will address these topics and more during the workshop, with the aim of increasing awareness of this controversial area of research. Participants at any stage of their research careers, who wish to discuss ethical issues around scientific publication, are welcome!
