We at SEEIJ, aspire to select research paper of very high quality in terms of originality, accuracy, validity, reliability, credibility, authority, readability, comprehensibility and relevance to the Journal’s scope and mission which are the outcome of the most recent and original research contributing to the advancement in the existing literature and are very significant in managerial implications. All the papers are selected through highest quality peer review. To achieve this, the entire peer review and publication process must be thorough, objective, and fair. Almost every aspect of this process involves important ethical principles and decisions, which are rarely explicitly stated and even less often shared with the readership. Journal's reputations depend on the trust of readers, authors, researchers, reviewers, editors and research subjects. This trust is enhanced by describing as explicitly as possible the journal's publication policies to ensure the ethical treatment of all participants in the publication process.
We have following Publications Guidelines.
Good research should be well justified, well planned, and appropriately designed, so that it can properly address the research question. Paper should publish based on the copyright that constitutes authorship. All authors are responsible for the quality, accuracy, and ethics of the work. Republication of a paper in another language, or simultaneously in multiple journals with different audiences, may be acceptable, provided that there is full and prominent disclosure of its original source at the time of submission of the manuscript.
- Peer review is fundamental to the scientific publication process and the dissemination of knowledge and information.
- Peer reviewers should be experts in the specific topic addressed in the articles they review, and should be selected for their objectivity and scientific knowledge.
- All reviewers should be informed of the publication’s expectations.
- Reviews will be expected to be professional, honest, courteous, prompt, and constructive.
- The editors may routinely assess all reviews for quality; they may also edit reviews before sending them to authors.
- The submitted manuscript is a privileged communication; reviewers must treat it as confidential. It should not be retained or copied.
- Also, reviewers must not share the manuscript with any colleagues without the explicit permission of the editor.
Editorial Decisions should be precise. If a published paper is subsequently found to have errors or major flaws, the Editor should take responsibility for promptly correcting the written record in the publication. Quality and other performance characteristics of editors should be periodically assessed.
Plagiarism is the use of other's published and unpublished ideas or words (or other intellectual property) without attribution or permission, and presenting them as new and original rather than derived from an existing source. We at SEEIJ, strongly discourage and against this ruthless act. If found guilty, to any extent, SEEIJ will fight for Plagiarism. Self-plagiarism refers to the practice of an author using portions of their previous writings on the same topic in another of their publications, without specifically citing it formally in quotes.
