The editorial policies are also consistent with COPE Core Practices.


Editors of the journal ensure a fair and unbiased policy throughout the entire editor process. Submitted manuscripts are evaluated exclusively on the basis of their academic merit without regard to the author’s personal background (race, gender, origin, religion, etc.) or institutional affiliation. Editors will not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to third parties and will not use unpublished information from a submitted manuscript for their own research purposes.

The Editor-in-Chief has full authority in and responsible for deciding which of the submitted manuscripts will be published, based on advice from the editors and the outcome of peer-review process.

Note: In light of the ongoing Russian invasion to Ukraine and the dreadful crimes committed towards the civilian population, wildlife, and environment, including scientists and protected areas of Ukraine, the Editorial Board reserves the right to decline submissions from authors affiliated with institutions of the Russian Federation.

Peer review

The editors are committed to peer review and editorial oversight of all published content. Informational materials such as chronicles or book reviews may be exempt of peer review but still undergo editorial oversight. Peer-review is double-blind and at least two expert reviewers are invited to comment on the scientific content of each manuscript. Additional peer-reviewers may be contacted if the first round of peer-review results in contradicting evaluations. Peer-reviewers are advised to treat the manuscripts they receive as confidential documents. Any invited referee who has conflicts of interest with any of the authors, companies or institutions connected to the manuscript and the work described therein should immediately notify the editors. Data disclosed in a manuscript must not be used in a reviewer’s own research. This applies also to invited reviewers who decline the review invitation.


Submitting a manuscript to Theriologia Ukrainica the author(s) acknowledge(s) that neither this manuscript nor another manuscript of similar content has not been published earlier and is not under consideration in another journal. Authors should present an accurate account of the work performed and the results obtained, followed by an objective discussion. Review articles should be accurate, objective and comprehensive. Authors may be asked to provide the raw data of their study. Authors should ensure that work and/or words of others has been appropriately cited. Plagiarism in all its forms is unacceptable.

When a manuscript is accepted for publication, the authors should submit a conflict of interests statement. All sources of financial support for the work should be disclosed. Information obtained privately must not be used or reported without explicit permission from the source.

If the work involves the use of live animals, the authors should ensure that all procedures were performed in compliance with relevant laws and institutional guidelines. In particular, authors are recommended to comply with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Policy Statement on Research Involving Species at Risk of Extinction and consult the IUCN red list index of threatened species, as well as with the Convention on the Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora. Additionally, authors should follow the legal requirements for the care and use of animals according to the laws of Ukraine "On Fauna" (>>>), "On the Red Book of Ukraine" (>>>), "On Protection of Animals from Cruel Treatment" (>>>), and other legislative acts of Ukraine.

When authors discover significant errors or inaccuracies in their own published work, it is their obligation to notify the editors and cooperate with them to either correct the paper in the form of an erratum or to retract the paper.


The publisher is responsible to ensure that the editorial process adheres to the highest professional standards and that the published materials are of high scientific quality. In cases of alleged or proven scientific misconduct, the publisher will take all appropriate measures, which may include the publication of an erratum, clarification, or retraction of the affected work.
