Title variants
Languages of publication
Dynamics of economic life has grown significantly during past several decades. All transformations taking place in the world are also associated with ethics. It is important to carry out scientific research with preservation of the highest reliability and credibility. The scientific ethos must be a primary value for each researcher, because reliable scientific studies should be justified first of all by significant lack of knowledge. The advancing liberalization and globalization contributes to spread of immoral behaviors, however violation of ethical norms can be leveled, if correct and cohesive principles of ethical conducts within academic circles are employed.
