Declaration about Ghostwriting and Guest Authorship

Integrity in science is one of the foundations of quality. Readers should be sure that the authors of publications present the results of their work in a transparent, honest and fair manner, regardless of whether they are the direct authors, or used with the aid of a specialized entity (natural or legal person).
Transparency of information on entities that contributed to the publication (contribution of knowledge, material, financial, etc..) is the evidence of an ethical attitude of the scientist and the highest standards of journal editing. This is a manifestation not only of good manners, but also of social responsibility.
Ghostwriting and guest authorship are contrasting examples of malpractice. 
In the case of ghostwriting a person has made a substantial contribution to the manuscript, without disclosing his/her participation as a co-author, or without mentioning his/her role in the acknowledgments of the publication.
In the case of guest authorship (honorary authorship), a person is listed as author or co-author of manuscript despite his/her contribution was minimal or worse he/she did not contribute to creation of manuscript at all.

Therefore, the editors inform the author as follows:

1.Editors are obliged to require authors to disclose individual contributions of each of authors in the creation of manuscript (with their affiliations and contributions, i.e. who is the author of concepts, principles, methods, the protocol, etc. used in the preparation of the manuscript). The corresponding author bears primary responsibility for providing the requested information.
2.Editors explain in the Instructions for authors that ghostwriting and guest authorship are manifestations of scientific misconduct, and any detected cases will be exposed, including notification of relevant entities (institutions employing the authors, research societies, associations of editors of scientific journals, etc.)
3.Editors require authors to disclose information on sources of funding of publications, contribution of scientific research institutions, associations and other entities (financial disclosure)
4.Editors will document all forms of scientific misconduct, particularly violations of ethics rules in science.
5.Each of the authors responsible for the submission of publication will be required to make a statement on ghostwriting and guest authorship.

Review procedure (single-blind review)

Any manuscripts received for review will be treated as confidential documents. They are first evaluated by the editors to determine if they merit full external review. Reviewers for Journal of Casting & Materials Engineering are selected from the wider scientific community by the editors on the basis of their knowledge of the field. All papers are reviewed in a single-blind manner, that is, reviewer names are anonymised, so the Journal does not share their identity with the authors. Reviewers are chosen in such a way that any potential conflict of interest (including any financial, personal or other relationships) between them and the authors is disclosed. The corresponding author is then informed of the editorial decision by e-mail. It is rare for submitted manuscripts to be accepted without the need for revision. Please note that the request for a revision does not guarantee acceptance.
