The ISCAP journals are double-blind, peer-reviewed journals. All parties involved in publishing an article in these journals (editors, peer reviewers, authors, and publisher) must follow appropriate guidelines for ethical behavior. In general, editors and reviewers must maintain objectivity and confidentiality and manage potential conflicts of interest; authors must be honest and disclose their sources and funders.

Specifically, to assure high-quality publications, public trust in scientific findings, and to appropriately confer credit for ideas and results, all of the journals support and have adopted the "Guidelines for Ethical Behavior in Publishing" from Information Systems Research, published by INFORMS (The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences), with adjustments and modifications based on the journals’ operations as well as guidelines from other organizations and societies. The ethical standards for publication in these journals include, but are not limited to, the following:

General Duties and Responsibilities of Editorial Team

General Duties and Responsibilities of Reviewers

General Responsibilities of Authors


In the event of documented violations of any of these ethical guidelines, the Editor in Chief of the Journal may (at a minimum):

Questions should be addressed to the Editor in Chief at the address on the individual Journal web sites.
