Bulgarian Chapter of EASE: Online Meeting and Workshop - 18 December 2020

The EASE Bulgarian Regional Chapter are organizing a Zoom event on Friday, 18 December 2020, 2pm Sofia time.


We will discuss publishing ethics topics on ‘Correction and retraction policies and procedures. Reaction to information relating to actual or suspected misconduct, unethical behaviour or malpractice’.

Workshop details
The ESNBU Editors will discuss the ESNBU journals policy and procedures illustrating with cases the journal has dealt with.

The anonymity of the whistleblowers is discussed both in relation to the journal policies and the EU DIRECTIVE (EU) 2019/1937 - 23 October 2019 for the 'protection of whistleblowers of the EU Law', national regulations, at the same time counteracting the breaching side.

Very often the interests of the whole academic community are affected, and as far as malpractice is concerned - plagiarism, falsifying data, etc. - practiced by scholars, it is urgent to discuss widely, adopt and apply adequate procedures to act upon to protect the integrity of science publishing.

The meeting will be held in Bulgarian and hosted by Boris Naimushin and Stan Bogdanov.
