Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice

The editorial staff’s primary objective with regard to publication is to develop special ethical guidelines derived from those created by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). COPE began developing ethics for journal publication beginning in 1997; consequently, this group of experts has an accumulated wealth of experience in this area. The International Journal of Business and Management (IJBM) (ISSN Online: 2815-9330) chose to create its own ethical policy for the journal based upon COPE’s policy documents. more information
