JOA has a comprehensive peer review procedure that, in the majority of circumstances, entails a double-blind appraisal of the work with at least two independent reviewers and a final judgment on acceptance or rejection by the Editor in chief. Before articles are published, all submitted manuscripts go through a peer-review procedure.
The following provides a synopsis of the editorial procedures carried out.
As soon as a paper is submitted the managing editor checks to assess the suitability of the manuscript, the qualifications, and backgrounds of the authors and to reject any manuscripts that do not comply with submission guidelines or required quality.
Peer Review Processes
The review process is the most important phase of the article’s publication. It not only enables authors to enhance their work but also aids editors in choosing which articles to accept. A wide range of topics in accounting, finance, and entrepreneurship are covered by the JOA peer-reviewed journal, which is committed to publishing unique and important scholarly research. This will guarantee readability, timeliness, relevance, and originality.
The process of peer review in JOA is a Double-blind assessment. At least two review reports are required for each submitted paper and the editor is able to suggest reviewers during the pre-editing check part of the process. Alternatively, JOA editorial Board can use qualified Editorial Board Members for each journal, qualified reviewers from our database, or any new reviewers to conduct such reviews of submitted papers. The reviewers are required to verify that they:
. hold no conflict of interest with the authors including having published with them within the last five years,
. hold a Ph.D. and
. having recent publications in the same field as the submitted paper.
JOA does not condone any act of plagiarism. The uncredited use of significant amounts of text, data, or any previously published work without permission is referred to as plagiarism. Giving credit or acknowledging someone else’s work while misrepresenting it as their own. Text(s), pictures, musical quotations, lengthy mathematical derivations, computer codes, content downloaded from websites or taken from manuscripts, and public materials, such as speeches and presentations, are also possible inclusions. An author is alleged of copywriting infringements or plagiarism if there are acts of minor copying of brief phrases in discussions, literal (word-for-word) copying of large portions from a published paper, production of major portions of a previously published paper, such as text, tables, and figures, paraphrasing of lengthy texts without verbatim copying the text, or recycling of the author’s own previously published text, known as self-plagiarism, without citing the prior work. When plagiarism is discovered both before and after publication, JOA may provide detailed instructions on the procedures to be followed.
Additionally, there are instructions on how to use the right plagiarism-checking software to examine each contribution. We employ software that detects plagiarism. Cross-check all submissions of articles for publication. These make it easier for editors to spot plagiarism in all submissions. Submissions that appear to be entirely or partially plagiarized are rejected. We can retract the article if post-publication plagiarism is found. When plagiarism is suspected, we encourage our readers, reviewers, and editors to report it.
