Ethical Guidelines for Publication in Power Electronics and Drives

Authors should present a new, original not published yet papers. Copy, plagiarism, and other replication in the paper are not accepted (results published by other authors should be cited in the text).
Articles must be relevant from a scientific point of view, and the results must be reproducible. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.
All review papers should be objective, comprehensive, and referred to the state of the art related to the issues under consideration.
Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.

PED Editors should evaluate all manuscripts on the basis of their academic quality only. All papers sent to the PED are protected by the copyright.
Editors protect papers and they cannot use the results presented in the papers to their own research. If there is a likelihood of breach of ethical principles, editors are obliged to inform the Editor-in-Chief and the authors.

Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflict of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers. All manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. New ideas, information, schemes presented in the manuscript must be kept confidential and cannot be used for personal purposes of the reviewers. Reviews should be objective and contain constructive arguments, so that the authors can use them for improving the paper.
If the paper is out of the reviewer field of interest, this information should be sent to the Editorial Office.
