Authors, peer-reviewers, editors and publishers, involved in publishing of papers for International Conference of Electrical Drives and Power Electronics (EDPE) agree and respect principles of ethical behaviour stated here and composed in compliance with Elsevier recommendations. Technical university of Košice and KOREMA, as the publishers of conference proceedings, recognize their responsibilities and duties over all stages of publishing process. If necessary, we will communicate with other journal or conference proceedings' publishers, in matters of ethical standards' improvement or errors correction. If any part of the following statement is unclear, please, discuss all aspects of publication ethics with the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) at Moreover, the organizers require compliance with the IEEE plagiarism directives, which can be found at and at

Authors' responsibilities

Plagiarism. All forms of plagiarism represent unethical behaviour and are unacceptable. Submitted manuscripts submitted have to be authors' original work. If authors have used work of other authors, it must be appropriately cited or quoted.

Multiple publications.
Submitting same contribution to more than one conference or journal represents unethical behaviour and is unacceptable.

Sources. Authors must always identify all sources used in the creation of their manuscript. Sensitive information must not be used without permission of the source.

Authorship. Only those authors, who have made significant contributions, should be listed as co-authors. The corresponding author should ensure that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.

Data. Authors must present their results clearly and without falsification or inappropriate data manipulation. Authors should describe their methods clearly and unambiguously so that their findings can be confirmed by others. Essential data should be represented accurately in the paper. Authors must state that all data in the paper are real and authentic.

Disclosure. All authors should disclose in their manuscript any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed. Potential conflicts of interest should be disclosed at the earliest stage possible.

Errors. Authors must participate in the peer review process and are obliged to provide retractions or corrections of mistakes. Authors must report any errors they discover in their published paper to the editors. Authors should welcome complaints, as they provide an opportunity for improvement.

Reviewers' responsibilities

Promptness and competence. Reviewer, who is not able to do a prompt and professional review, must contact the editor and excuse himself from the review process.

Objectivity. Reviewer must express his views clearly with supporting arguments. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate.

Confidentiality. Reviewers should keep all information regarding papers confidential and treat them as privileged information. 

Sources. Reviewers should find relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors. Reviewer should also call to the editor's attention if any substantial similarity or overlap between the submitted manuscript and any other published paper exists.

Disclosure. Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in a reviewer's own research without the express written consent of the author. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors or institutions connected to the papers.

Contribution. Elsevier shares the view of many that all scholars who wish to contribute to publications have an obligation to do a fair share of reviewing.

Editorial Board‘s responsibilities

Publication decisions.  Editor has complete responsibility and authority to reject/accept an article. In making this decision he may consult with other editors or reviewers. He is responsible for the contents and overall quality of the publication. Editor should base his decisions solely on the papers' importance, originality, clarity and relevance to publication's scope. Editors should not reject papers based on suspicions; they should have proof of misconduct.

Fair play.  Editor should evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.

Confidentiality.  Editor and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers and the publisher, as appropriate. Editors should preserve the anonymity of reviewers.

Conflicts of interest.  Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must not be used for personal advantage. Editor should not consider manuscripts in which he has conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.

Cooperation in investigations.  Every reported act of unethical publishing behaviour must be looked. If needed, appropriate action should be taken, such as the publication of a retraction or expression of concern into, even if it is discovered years after publication.
