PUBLICATION ETHICS

Publication Ethics

What is mean by "ethics" in journal publishing?

Publishing in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential part of being a researcher. The benefits you receive as an author (and your funder and institution) come from ensuring that each manuscript adheres to established standards. The researcher must describe the manuscript accurately so that others can use and apply it.

Strategic Management Business Journal establishes guidelines for publishing ethics that writers must understand and follow. There are also ethics guidelines for journal editors and peer reviewers. The Journal's Business Management Strategy also describes publishing policies and peer review in Scope & Purpose.

Strategic Management Business Journal (SMBJ) aims to publish original and empirical research that demonstrates both academic and practical relevance. Academic relevance means that research contributes to ongoing academic discussion and debate on relevant topics. Usually, this implies that the manuscript has a solid foundation and contributes to the theory. All manuscripts published in the Journal of Strategic Management Business (SMBJ) must be in the context of empirical research.

The definitive text balances thoroughness with relevance and offers new aspects of the topic that require contemporary attention. Contemporary does not necessarily mean focusing on emerging phenomena: New approaches to examining established phenomena are exciting and relevant. Authors must adhere to the high standards of publication ethics as set out by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). Forgery or falsification of data, plagiarism, including the publication of duplicates of the author's work without proper citation, and misuse of the work are unacceptable practices. Every case of ethical violation is taken very seriously and will be handled under COPE guidelines. Visit http://publicationethics.org/.

Authorship

All authors listed in the manuscript must contribute to the experimental design, implementation, analysis, and interpretation of the data. All authors must be involved in writing the manuscript on the draft and at each revision stage and have read and approved the final version. Anyone who made significant contributions to the writing of the manuscript should be listed as an author (e.g., "ghostwriting" is prohibited by the Journal). Others who made less substantive contributions to the experiment or manuscript writing should be listed in the acknowledgment section. Any changes to authorship (including order of authors) following the initial manuscript submission must be approved in writing by all authors. Authenticity By submitting your manuscript to a journal, it is understood that it is an original manuscript and not an unpublished work and is not considered elsewhere.

Plagiarism Check

Plagiarism, including duplicate publication of the author's work, in whole or in part without proper citation, is not tolerated by the journal. Duplicate publication occurs when an author reuses a significant part of their published work without appropriate references.

Editors of the Strategic Management Business Journal detect plagiarism in accepted manuscripts before expert review using Turnitin Plagiarism Checker software since Volume 01, Issue 1 (June 2021).

Plagiarism Terms:

  1. 25% Plagiarism: Manuscripts will not be given a plagiarism statement and will be returned for content improvement.
  2. > 25% Plagiarism: The manuscript will not be reviewed by the Editor, and the manuscript will be returned to the author. Authors are requested to correct the plagiarism of the manuscript and resubmit the manuscript.

Suppose the author is proven to have submitted the same manuscript to the Strategic Management Business Journal and other journals simultaneously or after. In that case, the published manuscript will be withdrawn from the Strategic Management Business Journal Archives publication. The editor will penalize the author by blocklisting the publication. Blocklisted authors are not allowed to republish their manuscripts in the Strategic Management Business Journal.

Originality

By submitting your manuscript to the journal, it is understood that this is an original manuscript and is unpublished work and is not considered elsewhere. Plagiarism, including duplicate publication of the author's work, in whole or in part without proper citation, is not tolerated by the journal.

Duplicate publication occurs when an author reuses substantial parts of his or her published work without providing the appropriate references. This can range from publishing an identical paper in multiple journals to only adding a small amount of new data to a previously published paper.
