The publisher and the editors are committed to maintain high ethical standards and prevent publications where research misconduct has occurred. We use Turnitin to check for plagiarism.

In case of any allegation of misconduct, the editor deals with the allegation appropriately. In such ethical issues, including also retractions and corrections, the COPE guidelines are followed.
All published papers are archived at Széchenyi István University (Győr, Hungary) (https://acta.sze.hu/index.php/acta/issue/archive) and in the Electronic Periodicals Archive of the National Széchényi Library (Budapest, Hungary) (https://epa.oszk.hu/02500/02537), which shall continue to maintain the database even if the Journal publishing should be terminated.

Review and Publishing process
Each paper is evaluated in a blind peer-review process. In case of every submission, after the first check of the formal requirements, at least two independent reviewers who are expert in the field and who are not part of the journal’s editorial staff and at most one additional reviewer from the advisory board are requested to conduct the reviews. We use our own review form in the peer review procedures which contains a questionnaire part and a textual evaluation part. Each reviewer gives a recommendation to the editors who make the final decision. The whole publishing process can be found below.
