Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement

Revista Economică is an academic journal committed to the highest standards of publication ethics and quality of articles in publication; it also takes all possible measures against any publication malpractices.
The publication of an article in peer-reviewed Revista Economică is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society.
Authors have the following responsibilities:

  • All authors submitting their papers for publication in Revista Economică as original articles attest the originality of their work and the fact that by their articles they do not plagiarize or infringe the copyright of anyone;
  • The author should cite those publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work and that will guide the reader quickly to the earlier work that is essential for understanding the present investigation;
  • The manuscript should identify the origin, and originality, of any proprietary, non-standard datasets used in the paper;
  • Fragmentation of research papers should be avoided;
  • The author can’t publish same research manuscripts in more than one journal of publication. The only exception to the “originality” rule is a conference proceedings paper;
  • The author should make no changes to a paper after it has been accepted;
  • While self-citation is encouraged, Authors should avoid excessively citing their earlier works in order to inflate their citation count. Authors should also avoid self-citation that might violate the double-blind review process;
  • All work in the manuscript should be free of any plagiarism, falsification, fabrications, or omission of significant material;
  • Authors should avoid conflicts of interest or the appearance of conflicts of interest throughout the research process;
  • Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Publication responsibilities:

  • Should respect the intellectual independence of authors;
  • Should consider manuscripts submitted for publication with all reasonable speed;
  • Unpublished information, arguments, or interpretations disclosed in a submitted manuscript should not be used in an editor’s (or reviewer’s) own research except with the consent of the author;
  • An reviewer (or referee) of a manuscript should judge objectively the quality of the complete manuscript;
  • Reviewers should explain and support their judgments adequately so that editors and authors may understand the basis of their comments;
  • The publisher should avoid conflicts of interest or the appearance of conflicts of interest;
  • Editors and their editorial staff including student workers shall not disclose information about a manuscript to anyone other than Reviewers and Authors.
