Publication Ethics

IJBMTS is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal. This ethical statement binds the behavior of the author, the editor, reviewers and the publisher. This statement is based on Elsevier recommendations and COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors. 


The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed IJBMTS 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 of the authors and the institutions that support them. 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.  

IJBMTS is committed to ensuring that advertising, reprint or other commercial revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions.
