Ethics and Malpractice Statement

Bussecon Review of Social Sciences is committed to the academic community and in this regard, it stands for meeting the highest standards of publication ethics, whereas the publication malpractice is strictly prohibited by all possible measures.

Articles submitted for publication in BRSS are checked by iThenticate to prevent plagiarism. Articles are evaluated by blind peer-reviewed processes, and all comments from the Reviewer about the specific article are kept only between parties involved in the act of publishing: the journal editors, the authors, and the peer reviewers. For this reason, it is necessary to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for stakeholders previously mentioned.

Editor will accept and screen submissions in English from any author, regardless of gender, nationality, religious/political/sexual, etc. orientation and beliefs.

In order to achieve the highest level of objectivity and infringement of copyright in the examination process, the Editors must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript and its Author to anyone other than the corresponding Author and Reviewers (including potential). Based on the reports received from the Reviewers, the Editors have the right to accept or reject a manuscript for publication or to demand its modification. Only the manuscripts with two positive revisions could be published. Whereas the decision about one manuscript could not be made upon two required reports, the additional opinion could be requested from another Reviewer. The final selection of papers for publication and the form of publication shall rest with the Editor. Unpublished manuscripts must not be used in any purpose by Editors and must be kept strictly confidential from the third parties. The authors will be informed about the decision on their manuscript as promptly as possible. Following acceptance, a paper will normally be published in the next available issue.
