The all volunteer editorial team/ board takes responsibility to identify and prevent academic misconduct. We proactively work with authors to encourage ethical and valid research when given the opportunity. The editor-in-chief shall be made aware of any allegation of misconduct and facilitates any recourse including but not limited to the public retraction of a manuscript, updating of manuscript with corrections, publish apologies, and denial future submissions. The IJFAE has in place procedures by which potential conflict-of-interest information is obtained from all Editors and Associate Editors on a regular basis; annually, or upon appointment or re-appointment. Such information includes identification of editorial service with related or competing journals, institutional affiliations, identification of frequent collaborators, etc.


Editors, in consultation with IJFAE Editorial Board, manage their own conflicts of interest as well as those of their Associate Editors, staff, authors, reviewers and Editorial Board members. They maintain a summary of relevant interests (financial, academic and other kinds) of all editorial staff and members of editorial boards (which is updated at least annually). Article submissions from the Editors or Editorial Board members are managed so that no details of the review process, other than the anonymous reviews and decision, are accessible to the section Editor.
