Prague Egyptological Studies is an academic journal published by the Faculty of Arts at the Charles University and its aim is to be a publication platform mainly for research of ancient Egypt and ancient Sudan. In order to provide our readers with a journal of highest quality, it is guided by the principles of Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement. The above-mentioned principles are binding to all parties participating in the publication of the journal.
The editorial board and executive editor of the journal take issues of copyright infringement, plagiarism or other breaches of good practice in publishing very seriously. PES seeks to protect the rights of all authors and always investigates claims of plagiarism or misuse of published articles. Equally, PES seeks to protect the reputation of the journal against malpractice. Submitted articles may be checked with duplication-checking software. Where an article is found to have plagiarised other works or includes third-party copyright material without permission or with insufficient acknowledgement, or where the authorship of the article is contested, PES reserves the right to take action including, but not limited to: publishing an erratum or corrigendum (correction); retracting the article; taking up the matter with the head of the department or the dean of the author’s institution and/or relevant academic bodies or societies; or taking appropriate legal action.
