Publication Ethics for the Journal of Management & Social Science


The Journal of Management & Social Science (JMSS) is committed to upholding the highest standards of ethical conduct in research and publication. These guidelines are intended to ensure the integrity of the research published in the journal, protect the rights of authors and participants, and foster a culture of trust and transparency in the academic community.

General Principles:

  • Originality and Authorship: All submitted manuscripts must be original and not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Authorship should be limited to those who have made significant intellectual contributions to the work.
  • Data Integrity: All research data must be collected and analyzed ethically and accurately. Authors must be transparent about their data collection methods and provide evidence of informed consent from participants.
  • Conflict of Interest: Authors must disclose any potential conflicts of interest that could influence their research or interpretation of findings.
  • Reviewer Responsibilities: Reviewers must conduct fair and unbiased reviews of manuscripts, maintaining confidentiality and respecting the intellectual property of authors.

Specific Guidelines:

  • Plagiarism: All forms of plagiarism, including self-plagiarism, are strictly prohibited. Authors must properly cite the work of others and avoid presenting someone else's ideas or data as their own.
  • Data Fabrication and Falsification: Fabricating or falsifying data is a serious ethical violation. Authors must report all data accurately and avoid manipulating or misrepresenting results.
  • Duplicate Publication: Submitting the same manuscript to multiple journals simultaneously is not allowed. Authors must disclose any prior publications or presentations that overlap with the submitted manuscript.
  • Ethical Treatment of Participants: Research involving human or animal subjects must be conducted in accordance with relevant ethical guidelines and regulations. Authors must obtain informed consent from participants and protect their privacy and anonymity.
  • Research Misconduct: Any form of research misconduct, including plagiarism, data fabrication, and falsification, will be taken seriously and may result in retraction of the published article and other penalties.
