Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism is the unethical act of copying someone else’s initial ideas, processes, results or words without explicit acknowledgment of the original author and source. Self-plagiarism occurs when an author utilizes a large part of his/her own previously published work without appropriate references. It can range from getting the same manuscript published in multiple journals to modifying a previously published manuscript with new data.

Please Note:

  1. Full plagiarism, partial plagiarism, and self-plagiarism are not allowed.
  2. The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and words of others, this has been appropriately cited or quoted.
  3. An author should not, in general, publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal is unacceptable and unethical publishing behavior.
    Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

The editor will run a plagiarism check using TURNITIN for the submitted articles before sending them to the reviewers. We do not process any plagiarised content. If an article has over 25% plagiarism based on the check result, the article will be rejected.

Article Retraction

International Journal Business Economics (IJBE) has a commitment to maintain the quality of the article. In case, if there is a mistake and/or writing error from the author(s) that can impact to the quality and accuracy of the article, the article(s) can be retracted, if:

There is a significant scientific mistake that may invalidate the conclusions of the article, for example, there is strong proof that the findings are not credible that accordingly would generate a misleading legal concept or opinion.

The results have previously been published elsewhere without sufficient cross-reference, permission or justification.

There are ethical problems, such as plagiarism (appropriation of the ideas, procedures, findings or words of other person(s) without giving due credit, even those gained by confidential analysis of the manuscripts of others) or unauthorized authorship.

In order to ensure that retractions are conducted in compliance with the best practice of publishing and the COPE Retraction Guidelines, International Journal Business Economics (IJBE) adopts the following retraction process:

An article shall be brought to the attention of the editor of the journal.

The editor of the journal should obey the step-by-step instructions according to the COPE flowcharts (including evaluating a response from the author of the article in question).

Before any decision is taken, the reports of the editor should be forwarded to the Ethics Advisory Board which will be a forum to provide an advice and recommendations regarding ethical issues. The goal of this stage is to ensure a consistent approach in line with ethical practices.

The final decision on whether to withdraw is then conveyed to the author and, if necessary, to all other relevant bodies, such as the institution of the author affiliated.

The Retraction Statement is then posted online and released in the next available journal issue.

Notice that if author(s) hold copyright for an article, this does not mean that they automatically have a right to remove it after publication. The credibility of the published scientific manuscript is of utmost importance and the COPE Retraction Rules still apply in such situations.

Article Withdrawal

The author is not allowed to withdraw the submitted manuscripts because the withdrawal is a waste of valuable resources since editors and referees have spent plenty of time editing the manuscript and the works invested by the publisher. The author is obliged to approve the checklist provided before sending the manuscript via Online Journal System (OJS).

If the author demands the removal of his/her manuscript while the manuscript is still under peer-review, the author will be fined by paying USD100 per manuscript.

If the withdrawal of the manuscript is approved for print, the author will be fined by paying USD150 per manuscript.

If the manuscript has been published as "Article in Press" (articles that have been accepted for publication but which has not been formally published and will not have the complete volume/issue/page information) that include errors, or are discovered to be accidental duplicates of other published article(s), or are determined to violate our journal publishing ethics guidelines in the view of the editors (such as multiple submissions, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data and the like), maybe "Withdrawn" From the International Journal Business Economics (IJBE) website. Withdrawing means that the article content (HTML and PDF) is deleted and replaced with an HTML page and PDF simply states that the article has been withdrawn. 

If the author requests removal of the manuscript, an official letter signed by the corresponding author and Head of Department of the affiliated institution should be submitted to the Principal Editor.

Article Correction

International Journal Business Economics (IJBE) should consider making a correction if:

A small part of otherwise reliable publication reports incorrect data or proves to be inaccurate, particularly if this is the product of an honest mistake.

The list of author(s)or contributors is wrong (e.g. a deserving author has been omitted or someone who does not meet authorship criteria has been included).

Corrections to peer-reviewed material fall into one of three categories:

Publisher correction (erratum): inform readers of a significant error made by the publisher/journal staff (usually a production error) which has a negative effect on the publication record or the scientific credibility of the article or on the reputation of the authors or journals.

Author correction (corrigendum): to inform readers of a significant error made by the authors which has a negative effect on the publication record or the scientific reputation of the paper, or on the reputation of the Authors or the journal.

Addendum: an addition to the article by its authors to clarify contradictions, extend existing work, or otherwise explain or update the details in the main work.

The decision whether a correction should be made by the editor(s) of a journal, along with recommendations from the members of the Reviewers or the Editorial Board. Managing Editors will approach the author(s) for clarification.

Article Removal

In a very limited number of instances, it may be appropriate to delete a published article from International Journal Business Economics (IJBE)  online website. This can only happen if the article is explicitly defamatory or infringes the legal rights of others, or if the article is, or we have practical reason to accept it to be, the subject of a court order, or if the article, if acted upon, may pose a significant health danger. In such cases, the metadata (i.e. title and author information) of the article will be preserved, the article will be replaced by a screen showing that the article has been deleted for legal purposes.

Article Replacement

In situations where an article can pose a significant health risk, the authors of the original paper may decide to remove the original faulty and substitute it with a corrected edition. In such cases, the procedures for retraction referred to above will be followed with the difference that the notice of retraction of the article will include a link to the revised re-published article along with the history of the manuscript.
