Authors should adhere to the rigorous standards of publishing ethics established by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and enforced by The Romanian Journal of Society and Politics Editorial Board.

Plagiarism, including repeat publishing of the authors' own work without appropriate reference, and misuse of the work are all unethical.

Any occurrence of ethical misbehavior will be taken seriously by the Editorial Board and dealt with accordingly.
