Publication Ethics of the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute’s Publishing House
(the most important principles applicable to all publications issued by the Publishing House, including the Meteorological Bulletin)
The introduction of an internal publication policy at the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute aims at defining the basic principles and standards of good publishing practices which should be observed.
When writing expert publications, their authors should respect certain legal and moral claims of other authors, while taking care to protect their own works. Act 121/2000 Coll., on Copyright and Rights Related to Copyright and on Amendments to Certain Acts (the Copyright Act), is a legal document dealing with the protection of authors. By way of contrast, copyright ethics are an unwritten set of moral principles that should be followed by an author writing his/her expert texts. The publication ethics then summarize the guiding principles for work performed by authors, reviewers and editors.
One of the main priorities is preventing and avoiding all illegal and unethical practices. Plagiarism is by no means tolerated. By submitting a manuscript, the author affirms that it is the author’s own original work.
