The editorial office of JoIM explains in the “Instructions for authors” that ghostwriting and guest authorship are indication of scientific dishonesty and all cases will be exposed and adequate institutions will be informed (employers, scientific societies, scientific editors associations, etc.).
“Ghostwriting” is a situation where a person contributes significantly to a publication and is not disclosed as one of the authors or named in the acknowledgments.
“Guest authorship” is a situation where an author's contribution is insignificant or non existent and he is still listed as co-author of a publication. To prevent cases of “ghostwriting” and “guest authorship” editorial office is implementing the procedure specified below:
Individual authors should disclose their contribution to preparation of a publication (with a list of their affiliations) in detail, i.e. provide information on who is the author of concept, premises, methods, protocol etc. used in the publication. Main responsibility to disclose full information remains on author submitting manuscript.
All authors are requested to attach to the article information about the sources of funding,  contribution to research institutions, associations and other entities (return the completed form to the Editorial Office).
