Copyright Transfer Agreement

In accordance with the international copyright (intellectual property rights) legislation and the respective legislation of the Republic of Moldova, scientific works (research papers, scientific reports) are protected by copyright law. Any scientific work as a result of intellectual activity is an object protected by copyright. The person who created the scientific work is recognized as the author (coauthor).

The publisher of scholarly content in the English language notifies the authors of the following important issues in manuscript preparation:

  1. If authors borrow or adopt content (illustrations, quotations, tables, etc.) from other sources, they should receive permission from the copyright holders for the use of this content. A copy of written permission should be submitted together with the manuscript.
  2. References to the sources of borrowed or adopted content must be given in a manuscript in all cases
  3. Before submission of a manuscript, authors should familiarize themselves with the conditions for publication of papers in a specific journal, including the guidelines for authors and the Ethics of the journal “Elektronnaya Obrabotka Materialov”. The publishers discourage the authors from submitting a manuscript if the authors do not comply with the requirements of these documents.
  4. Editorial board consider only original manuscripts that have not been published in English or other languages. Otherwise the publishers reserve the right to withdraw or retract the article and require the authors to restitute all relevant losses.

In order to simplify the procedure of interaction between an author (coauthors) and the publisher, please, send your copyright transfer agreement (with PP – here), simultaneously with the manuscript of the article to the editorial board of the parent journal EOM.

Both agreements must be sent as scanned PDF files. The fill-outs in both agreements must be readable and signed by all co-authors (right-holders). The editorial board does not accept manuscripts without copyright transfer agreements.

The agreement with leiades Publishing (PP) is a contract of adhesion.

We draw your attention to the fact that both agreements (with EOM and with PP) enter into force under the condition of acceptance of an article for publication. If for any reason an article is rejected by the editorial board of the journal Electronnaya obrabotka materialov”, the agreement automatically loses force. The decision on acceptance of an article for publication is the exclusive right of the editorial board of the parent journal. Signing of the agreements by an author (co-authors) means that the author (co-authors) accepts the conditions of the agreements and agrees with them.
