It is important that all editors, reviewers and authors involved in the production of the Social Science Journal for Advanced Research adhere to the highest levels of professional ethics and standards. Each author clearly agrees that the manuscript satisfies the highest ethical requirements for authors and co-authors by submitting it to this journal. Our ethics statements are based on Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

(3) The Editors and members of the working group promise not to reveal information about the papers submitted for publication to anybody except the author, referees, and editor.

DUTIES OF REVIEWER

(1) Any reviewer who does not feel suitable up to the task or is unable to complete the evaluation of the proposed contribution within the time range should notify the coordinators as soon as possible.

(2) Every given assignment should be approached as a private discussion. As a result, these texts may not be discussed with anyone else without the express permission of the editors.

(3) The reviewer must provide credible justifications for their decisions. Peer review must be handled in a fair manner. Any personal opinions regarding the authors or contributors are considered unacceptable.

(5) Confidential information must be kept private and not exploited for personal gain during the peer-review process. The reviewer will not be able to read the paper if there is a potential conflict of interest due to previous collaboration or rivalry with the author and/or her/his institution.

DUTIES OF AUTHORS
