Author Guidelines

FIBA: Finance and Banking Analysis aspires to be a leading peer-reviewed platform and an authoritative source of information. We publish original research papers, review articles, and case studies that focus on financial management and related topics. All submissions must be original and not under consideration for publication elsewhere in any language. This statement outlines the ethical responsibilities of all parties involved in the publication process, including authors, editors, reviewers, and the publisher. These guidelines are based on COPE's Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.
Duties of Authors
Reporting Standards: Authors should provide an accurate account of their original research and discuss its significance objectively. Results should be presented honestly, without fabrication, falsification, or improper data manipulation. Manuscripts should include sufficient detail and references for others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements are unethical and unacceptable. Manuscripts must adhere to the journal's submission guidelines.
Originality and plagiarism:
Authors must ensure that their work is entirely original and not concurrently submitted to multiple publications without prior agreement. Proper acknowledgment of previous work, whether by other researchers or the authors themselves, is essential. Direct quotes from other publications must be appropriately cited.
Multiple, redundant, or concurrent publications:
Authors should avoid submitting the same manuscript to multiple journals or publishing redundant work. Multiple publications from the same research project should be clearly identified, with the primary publication referenced.
Acknowledgment of Sources: Authors must acknowledge all sources of data used in their research and cite influential publications. Proper attribution of others' work is mandatory.
Authorship of the paper:
The authorship should accurately reflect individuals' contributions to the research. Those who significantly contributed to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the study should be listed as co-authors. Minor contributors may be acknowledged in a separate section. All authors must approve the manuscript before submission.
Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest: Authors must disclose any financial or substantive conflicts of interest that could potentially influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All financial support sources for the project must be disclosed.
Fundamental Errors in Published Works:
Authors should promptly notify the editor if they discover significant errors or inaccuracies in their submitted manuscript, cooperating with the editor to retract or correct the paper.
Hazards and Human or Animal Subjects:
Authors should clearly identify any hazards related to the use of chemicals, procedures, or equipment in their work.
Duties of Editors
Publication Decisions:
Editors decide whether to accept, reject, or request modifications to manuscripts based on peer review reports. The importance and validity of the work must guide these decisions. Editors are bound by the journal's policies and legal requirements, such as libel, copyright, and plagiarism. Editors may consult with other editors or reviewers when making decisions and must take responsibility for the quality of the content they publish.
Review of Manuscripts:
Editors must ensure that each manuscript is evaluated for originality and organize peer review fairly. The peer review process should be transparent to authors. Appropriate peer reviewers, selected for their expertise and without conflicts of interest, should be chosen.
Fair Play: Editors must ensure unbiased and fair decision-making processes without regard to authors' demographics. Editorial independence and integrity are essential principles.
Editors must protect the confidentiality of authors' submissions and assess data protection and patient confidentiality issues. Informed consent should be ensured for research and publication.
Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest:
Editors must not use unpublished materials from submitted manuscripts for their research without written consent from the author and avoid decisions on manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest.
Duties of Reviewers
Reviewers must treat submitted manuscripts as confidential and privileged information, sharing them only with authorized individuals.
Acknowledgment of Sources: Reviewers should ensure that authors acknowledge all data sources and identify relevant published work not cited in the manuscript.
Standards of objectivity:
Reviews must be objective and constructive, with clear feedback to help authors improve their work.
Disclosure and Conflict of Interest:
Reviewers must maintain the confidentiality of privileged information and not use it for personal gain. Reviewers should not assess manuscripts where they have conflicts of interest.
Reviewers must provide timely reviews or promptly inform the editor if they cannot meet the deadline.
