Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement

Maintaining high ethical standards in New Ideas in Child and Educational Psychology is part of our efforts to ensure the journal's quality.

We adhere to the regulations in Chapter 70, “Author's Right”, of the Russian Federation Civil Code and the Code of Ethics of The Russian Psychological Society.


Unless specific permission has been given, papers submitted to New Ideas in Child and Educational Psychology must be the authors' original work and not the work of others, including text, figures, and tables.

Each author should have contributed enough to the work to accept public accountability for it. Only substantial contributions to (a) idea and design, or data analysis and interpretation; (b) writing the article or critically reviewing it for key intellectual content; and (c) final approval of the version to be published should qualify a person to be attributed as an author.

Before submitting to a journal, the corresponding author must obtain permission from all authors to publish the materials and reach an agreement on authorship.

The Acknowledgment section of the article is intended for persons who provided financial assistance, technical support, or other people who took part  in the work but are not recognized as authors (for example, reviewers and critics of the manuscript, assistance with statistical analysis and interpretation).

Misleading Publication

The journal accepts only genuine articles. Any manipulated data or fraudulent information are strictly prohibited. This also applies to direct translation into other languages.

To promote better science, we ask authors to avoid using statements of opinion as facts, to present the results in a direct way, and to avoid excessive or biased or misleading interpretation. The author should strike a balance between discussion of the significance of the outcomes and over-interpretation.

Plagiarism and Self-Plagiarism

Plagiarism is the violation of authorship and appropriation of someone else's work or ideas by integrating them into your work without proper attribution. Writers are fully responsible for plagiarism in their work.

New Ideas in Child and Educational Psychology is a member of the Similarity Check service. To detect instances of overlapping and identical text in submitted articles, the editors use iThenticate software.

Please avoid plagiarism in your manuscript by following the following recommendations:

· Direct quotations should be used carefully.
· Use quote marks around words that have been taken directly from a source.
· Don’t change any portion of the quotation within a phrase.
· For a quote within a quote, use single quotation marks.
· For omitted quotations, use ellipses (a space and three periods).
· Use brackets to surround newly introduced words.
· Attempt to paraphrase or summarize in your own words material collected from a range of sources.

Self-plagiarism is also unethical, because each manuscript is copyrighted when published. Without the authorization of the copyright holder, an author may not reproduce his or her own work in a new manuscript. Placing quotation marks around brief phrases from one's own writing and citing relevant sources is a good alternative.

Duplicate Publication

Because the journal requires original work, the submitted material should not contain any results that have already been published in peer-reviewed journals or books.

Any potential duplicate publications should be mentioned by the author.

The manuscript should be submitted to only one journal until the decision (accept/rejection) is made and cannot be submitted to another journal at the same time. A paper previously rejected by one journal may be submitted to another journal.

Please ensure that your manuscript has no identical or nearly identical content to something that has already been published. Submitting similar articles in various disciplines as well as publishing several articles when one would be enough, is also considered duplication.
