In order to ensure both the dissemination and protection of the papers published in our Journal, we ask the authors to assign to the CKS Journal (hereinafter “us” or “we”) the rights of copyright in the articles they contribute.

3. We shall prepare and publish your Article in the Journal.

The author takes full responsibility for the submission of plagiarized manuscripts.

6. In addition, you warrant that the Article contains no statement that is abusive, defamatory, libelous, obscene, fraudulent, nor in any way infringes the rights of others, nor is in any other way unlawful or in violation of applicable laws.

7. You shall keep us and our affiliates indemnified in full against all loss, damages, injury, costs and expenses (including legal and other professional fees and expenses) awarded against or incurred or paid by us as a result of your breach of the warranties given in this agreement.

8. If the Article was prepared jointly with other authors, you warrant that you have been authorized by all co-authors to sign this Agreement on their behalf, and to agree on their behalf the order of names in the publication of the Article.
