“Culture and Politics” academic journal

„Kultura i Polityka” (“Culture and Politics”) is an academic journal published every six months by the Tischner European University in Cracow. The aim of the journal is to promote and disseminate the most recent ideas and research in the field of broadly understood social sciences. The purposeful “and” in the title points to the scientific importance and subtlety of the links between culture and politics: two fundamental fields of human activity.

Ghostwriting barrier

Tischner European University not only foregrounds the high quality content of the journal, but also the question of research ethics. We have introduced the procedures preventing “ghostwriting” and “guest authorship”(concealing persons who have substantially contributed to the publication, and adding as co-authors persons who have had little or no impact on the submitted paper). These two phenomena defy research honesty, which is why all the instances of such dealings will be uncovered and documented by the Editorial Board, together with the notification of the interested parties. To prevent such situations, we require that all due contributions be stated by the author(s). The authors of the articles are asked to sign a copyright agreement, which includes the rules concerning “ghostwriting” and “guest authorship”. This agreement is at the same time a legal basis for the publication in “Kultura i Polityka”.
