Publication Ethics

JAMBURA Agribusiness Journal publishes articles in agribusiness fields such as Agribusiness, Agriculture Economic, Agribusiness Management and Analysis, Agricultural Communication and Counseling, Institutional Agriculture, Regional Economics, and Regional Development and Planning issues. For a peer-reviewed journal, the publication of articles plays an essential role in the development of a coherent network of knowledge. It is, therefore, essential that all publishers, editors, authors, and reviewers, in the process of publishing the journals, conduct themselves in accordance with the highest level of professional ethics and standards. We follow the  Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)'s Code of Conduct for Journal Publishers.

Ethical Guideline for Journal Publication. The publisher is dedicated to supporting the vast efforts of the editors, the academic contributions of authors, and the respected volunteer work undertaken by reviewers. The publisher is also responsible for ensuring that the publication system works smoothly, and that ethical guidelines are applied to assist the editor, author, and reviewer in performing their ethical duties.

Duties of Author.

All the work reported in the manuscript must be original and free from any kind of plagiarism.

The work should not have been published elsewhere or submitted to any other journal(s) at the time of submission to Bentham Open.

Any potential conflict of interest must be clearly acknowledged.

Proper acknowledgements to other work referred/cited (of any individual, company or institution) must be given. Permission must be obtained for any content used from other sources.

Only those who have made any substantial contribution to the interpretation or composition of the submitted work, should be listed as ‘Authors’. While other contributors should be mentioned as ‘co-authors’.

Duties of Editor.

The editor of a journal holds a vital position taking important editorial decisions on all peer-reviewed articles submitted for publication.

The editor should maintain the transparency of the academic research and record, preclude professional needs from cooperating with ethical standards, and always be willing to publish retractions, rectifications, and erratum when required.

The editor should assess manuscripts for their scientific quality and intellectual content, free from any biased decisions based on discrimination of race, gender, geographical origin, or religion of the author(s). The editor should evaluate manuscripts objectively based on their academic merit and free of any commercial or self-interests.

The editor should not disclose any information regarding submitted manuscripts before publication of the said manuscript.

Promoting research rectitude must be preserved. If at any stage the publisher suspects any kind of misconduct in research, it should be investigated promptly and in detail with suitable authority. Furthermore if any suspicious act is observed in the peer review, it should be resolved with diligence.

Duties of Reviewers.

Providing a detailed, constructive, and unbiased evaluation in a timely manner on the scientific content of the work.

Indicating whether the writing is relevant, concise, and clear and evaluating the originality as well as scientific accuracy.

Maintaining the confidentiality of the complete review process.

Notifying the journal editor about any financial or personal conflict of interest and declining to review the manuscript when a possibility of such a conflict exists.

Notifying the journal editor of any ethical concerns in their evaluation of submitted manuscripts such as any violation of ethical treatment of animal and/or human subjects or any considerable similarity between a previously published article and any reviewed manuscript.

Duties of Publisher.

The editor should acknowledge receipt of submitted manuscripts within two working days of receipt and ensure an efficient, fair, and timely review process.

The editor should ensure that submitted manuscripts are processed in a confidential manner, and that no content of the manuscripts will be disclosed to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, and the publisher, as appropriate.

The editor should recuse himself or herself from processing manuscripts if he or she has any conflict of interest with any of the authors or institutions related to the manuscripts.

The editor should not disclose the names and other details of the reviewers to a third party without the permission of the reviewers.

The editor has the right to make the final decision on whether to accept or reject a manuscript with reference to the significance, originality, and clarity of the manuscript and its relevance to the journal.

The editor should by no means make any effort to oblige the authors to cite his or her journal either as an implied or explicit condition of accepting their manuscripts for publication.

The editor should not use for his or her own research any part of any data or work reported in submitted and as yet unpublished articles.

The editor should respond promptly and take reasonable measures when an ethical complaint occurs concerning a submitted manuscript or a published paper, and the editor should immediately contact and consult with the author. In this case, a written formal retraction or correction may also be required.
