Publication ethics of the Forest Business Analytics (Publisher)

Forest Business Analytics expects authors, reviewers, editors, and readers to conduct themselves with the highest professional ethics and standards.

Authors must make clear any personal interest or relationship that could potentially be affected by the publication of their manuscript. All sources of funding should be disclosed in the Acknowledgments section.

Your article should present a clear and concise account of the research performed and an objective discussion of the results and their significance. The article should have sufficient details and/or references to publicly available information such that a reader could reasonably expect to reproduce the experiment.

Authorship should be limited to those directly responsible for a significant portion of the research or writing. This includes the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of results. All persons who provided such input should be allowed to be listed as an author, and no one who was not involved in these ways should be given credit as an author. Individuals who have contributed in ways other than those given above, e.g., by providing funding, may be mentioned in the Acknowledgments section.

All authors should be given the chance to review the manuscript before submission. Forest Business Analytics expects the names of all authors and their current email addresses to be provided upon submission of an article to OJS. Failure to do so will delay, and in some cases prevent, publication.

It is the responsibility of all authors to ensure the manuscript is accurate and complete. Any error discovered in a published article should be immediately brought to the attention of the publisher and its journal’s governing body.

The work of other researchers should be properly acknowledged. In most cases, this involves citing previous publications. Private correspondence or discussion should not be reported without the express permission of the party involved. Authors must provide proof that permission has been obtained to reuse figures that have been previously published, and proper attribution should be included in the text of the manuscript.

Forest Business Analytics considers plagiarism—the use of previously published or openly accessible material without citation or permission for use—including self-plagiarism, to be unethical scientific behavior. Manuscripts that contain plagiarized text or figures will not be accepted. We use Plagiarism Checker powered by Grammarly and Artificial Intelligence content detector software to check the originality of manuscripts. For more information on Plagiarism Checker, visit their website.

The editors reserve the right to reject or delete articles for which irrefutable evidence of unauthorized copying becomes known to them.

Forest Business Analytics also considers the concurrent submission of a manuscript to different journals to be unethical scientific behavior.
