Summary/Abstract: The purpose of the work. The research is related to the questions of the ethical policy of the scientific periodicals and main recommendations of the Committee on the Ethics of COPE publications.Its main purpose is to inform Ukrainian authors and to ensure compliance with these requirements by the editorial boards of national publications, because it is a prerequisite for indexing by global science-computer databases, and international publications of domestic authors. The scientific novelty of the work lies in the study and systematization of English-language information, which due to the lack of Ukrainian-language sources has not been enough covered in Ukraine. The research methodology consists in analysis methods, in particular for English-language sources, descriptive and comparative. There were determined criteria for the refusal of article publishing, unfair practice of individual publishing houses and author’s responsibility for the research publication. The research describes the types of plagiarism and the process of recalling an article. The attention was paid to the issue of academic integrity and its implementation in Ukraine and the rules of citation and self-citation. The article states the basic concepts of open access and the traditional model of scientific journals and gives criteria for identifying questionable publishers and “Jeffrey Bill’s black list”. Conclusions.The issue of the ethics of scientific publications abroad is clearly regulated and standardized. In Ukraine, only the top editions carefully adhere to the requirements. Therefore, the issue of using the Creative Commons open access licenses in Ukraine, self-archiving of the data set and own publications, and the conclusion of copyright agreements across the country provides prospects for further researches.
