Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice

International Review of Management and Marketing (IRMM) is committed to the academic community and the lay world in ensuring ethics in publication and quality of articles in publication. Plagiarism is strictly forbidden and papers found to be plagiarized will be removed or not published in the International Review of Management and Marketing. Thus, all received papers are checked with "Ithenticate Plagiarism Detection Software Program" (www.ithenticate.com ) for plagiarism before review process. While signing the publication agreement the author(s) have to warrant that the article and associated materials are original and it does not infringe the copyright of anyone. Also the authors have to warrant that there was a full consensus of all the authors and it was neither submitted nor published previously. In respect of the COPE's Code of Conduct for Journal Publishers (for more information see COPE), the publication ethics of the IRMM includes the most important ethical standards for involved parties including authors, editors and peer reviewers. Any potential or emerging conflicts of interests are to be prevented by IRMM and - in case of deviations therefrom - to be reported directly to the editor.

  • The editor must maintain the confidentiality of any information related to submitted manuscripts by not disclosing such materials to any non-corresponding authors or reviewers;
  • The evaluation of the manuscripts must be accomplished in an objective and nondiscriminatory way;
  • The editor must not use unpublished materials of submitted manuscripts for own research purposes without written consents of the author(s);
  • The final decision about the selection of the articles to be included is taken by the editor of IRMM - if necessary - in combination with the Editorial Board.

Reviewer's duties

  • The reviewers must track any uncited sources or materials that have been published before.

Author's duties

  • The authors should report precisely the originality and significance of their research;
  • The authors are committed to submit only original work and use citations for any already reported material;
