Innovation, Technology, and Entrepreneurship Journal is a peer-reviewed journal that upholds the ethical standards set by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). Therefore, all parties, including the authors, editors, and reviewers involved in the publishing process, must comply with the following ethics statements.

Authors' Responsibilities

  • Authors must provide a precise and reliable working paper with accurate data, relevant references, and sufficient details. Including fraudulent or inaccurate statements is highly unethical and will not be tolerated.
  • Authors should not submit previously published work or the same manuscript to multiple journals. This behavior is unethical and not appropriate for publishing.
  • Authors should guarantee the originality of their work by submitting only completely original manuscripts. Any use of other people's work or words should be properly cited. Plagiarism, in any form, is unethical publication conduct and must be avoided.
  • Editors and reviewers may ask authors to include raw data with their manuscripts for review and publicly disclose it whenever possible to ensure the utmost scientific integrity.
  • It is important for authors to be transparent about any potential conflicts of interest that could affect the outcomes or interpretation of their manuscript. Additionally, all financial support for the work should be disclosed to ensure full transparency.
  • The corresponding author should ensure that the author list includes only appropriate co-authors who have given their approval for the final version of the manuscript to be submitted for publication. It is also necessary to verify that all co-authors have seen and agreed to the submission of the manuscript.
  • The authors are responsible for informing the journal editor or publisher about any significant errors or inaccuracies in their published work. If a third party informs the editors or publisher about any errors, it is still the authors' responsibility to take action or provide evidence of accuracy.

Editors’ Responsibilities

  • Editors must evaluate the intellectual substance of each manuscript submitted to the journal, disregarding the authors' gender, race, ethnicity, religion, or citizenship.
  • Editors and staff should maintain the confidentiality of all information related to manuscripts submitted by authors to this journal, including the identity of reviewers.
  • Editors should avoid using unpublished information for personal research purposes without written consent from the authors.
  • Editorial board members should refrain from evaluating a manuscript if they have conflicts of interest due to relationships or connections with the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the manuscripts.
  • The editor-in-chief is responsible for selecting articles for publication based on their value to the field and in accordance with the journal's policies and legal requirements. In making the decision editor may consult with other editors or reviewers.

Reviewers’ Responsibilities

  • Manuscripts sent to reviewers must be kept confidential. Reviewers can only share or discuss the work with others if the editor permits.
  • Reviews should be objective and have clear supporting arguments. This helps authors improve their manuscripts. Avoid personal criticism of authors because it is inappropriate.
  • Reviewers with conflicts of interest should inform the editors and decline the review invitation. Alternative reviewers will be contacted.
  • Reviewers must not use unpublished material or privileged information from a submitted manuscript for their own research or personal advantage without written consent from the authors.
  • If referees cannot review a manuscript or do so within a reasonable timeframe, it is best for them to decline the invitation and inform the editors. This aids in identifying other potential reviewers.
