Official statement of the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnology of the Polish Academy of Sciences Publishing House concerning the publication of texts authored or co-authored by researchers affiliated with state institutions of the Russian Federation during the war in Ukraine
Facing war waged by the Russian Federation in Ukraine, murders and tortures of civilians carried out by the Russian army, and deliberate attacks on civilian infrastructure the IAE PAS Publishing House, recommends withholding publication of texts authored or co-authored by researchers affiliated with state institutions of the Russian Federation. This recommendation is based on the statement of the PAS Presidium of March 16, 2022 (https://bip.pan.pl/artykul/211/958/stanowisko-prezydium-pan-dotyczace-zalecenia-dla-redaktorow-naczelnych-pism-naukowych) and a letter issued by the Minister of Education and Science of March 1, 2022 (DWM-WP.SWN.080.6.2022.AB). In the resolution of the European Parliament of November 23, 2022 (2022/2896(RSP)), the Russian Federation was recognized as a state sponsoring terrorism, which increases the ethical and legal responsibility of persons and institutions cooperating with researchers affiliated with state institutions of the Russian Federation.
However, guided by the care of freedom of academic voices and many years long tradition, the IAE PAS Publishing House assumes substantive autonomy of journals’ Editorial Boards and also of the IAE PAS Publishing House Editorial Board who create their own scientific and publication policies. Yet, it has to be emphasized, that they are responsible not only for the realization of the IAE PAS Publishing House aims but also for substantive, ethical, and legal aspects of proceeding publications. In this respect, the responsibility for publishing journals and books with the logo of the IAE PAS Publishing House remains exclusively on Editorial Boards.
