Ethical Principles

Ethical Principles
EYAD attaches great importance to ethical principles and publication policy in maintaining qualified and original academic studies that form the basis of the production and development of scientific knowledge. The International Standards for Editors and Authors of COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) are taken into account when examining the articles submitted to the journal.
For the studies submitted to the journal, a double-blind peer-review process is applied. In case of conflicting or insufficient referee evaluations, editors and/or Editorial Board may demand additional referee evaluation.
All studies that are sent to the journal, which involves research that requires the permission of the ethics committee (i.e. survey, interview, focus group work, observation, experiment and all kinds of research conducted with qualitative or quantitative approaches that require data collection from the participants using interview techniques; experiment or other scientific research on humans and animals which includes any material/data collection; clinical studies on humans; studies on animals; and retrospective studies that are conducted in conformity with the Personal Data Protection Law...) must obtain ethics committee approval. Detailed information about the ethics committee approval (name of the board, date and issue number) should be stated in the method section and also on the first page of the article as a footnote.  All intellectual and artistic works within the study must comply with the copyright regulations and it must be stated in the article that they are so. For the use of scales, questionnaires, photographs…etc, which belong to others, permission should be obtained from the owners and presented within the article.
In line with these general criteria, The Journal of Economics and Management Studies (EYAD) aims to publish by adhering to the below-listed principles for the editorial board.
1. Responsibilities of the Editorial Board
1.1. Editorial Decisions: The Editorial Board of the Journal of Economics and Management Research is collectively responsible for deciding which of the submitted articles will be published in the journal. The Editorial Board promotes academic honesty by following the COPE-defined “Good Publication Practice Guidelines”. The Editorial Board reserves the right to withdraw the articles that it considers violating the ethical rules and that show a high similarity rate in plagiarism prevention software such as iThenticate and Turnitin.
1.2. Objectivity: The Editorial Board evaluates the articles according to their academic and scientific content, regardless of the author's race, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, nationality and political philosophy.
1.3. Plagiarism: Since plagiarism is an indication of a low-quality journal or a journal that lacks a quality control system, the Editorial Board takes plagiarism very seriously and follows a strict policy on this issue.
The Editorial Board ensures the originality of the written works by uploading them to plagiarism prevention programs such as iThenticate and Turnitin before publication. If an article, for example, plagiarizes from other works or used third-party copyrighted material without permission or with incomplete notice, the Editorial Board reserves the right to take various actions, including the retraction of the article, reporting the issue to the head of the department, dean and/or relevant academic institutions in which the author works. An article submitted to our journal should not be going through the refereeing process of another journal simultaneously, this is considered to be a mandatory application condition for the Editorial Board.
1.4. Confidentiality: The Editorial Board ensures the protection of the confidentiality of all materials that are sent to the journal and all correspondence with the referees, unless otherwise agreed with the relevant authors and referees.
