Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement


The Journal of Accounting, Finance & Management Strategy (JAFMS) is committed to maintain academic ethics and quality standard of publication. The authors, editors, and reviewers are required to follow general standards of ethical behaviors.

The authors must adhere research integrity and avoid research misconduct, which is defined as fabrication, falsification or plagiarism in proposing, performing, or reviewing research, or in reporting research results. Any kind of research misconduct raises the issue of unethical publishing behavior and is strictly prohibited. The authors should ensure that their article is entirely original works, which is unconcerned with any form of infringement of intellectual property rights. Submitting the same article to more than one journal concurrently raises the issue of unethical publishing behavior and is also strictly prohibited. The authors should not submit articles describing substantially the same research work to more than one journal. The corresponding author should ensure that there is a full consensus of all co-authors in approving the final version of the article and its submission for publication.

Editors and reviewers should assess the submitted articles according to their academic contribution. Editors should assess the submitted articles exclusively based on their academic merit, and encourage debate and academic integrity and also protect research data. The articles received for review must be handled as confidential documents. Privileged information or research ideas obtained through peer review must be regarded as confidential and not used for personal advantage.
