Peer Review Process

Strategic Management Business Journal has a reasonably fast turnaround time from submission to the first decision, which averages less than one months. Strategic Management Business Journal is committed to creating the integrity of the articles published by upholding the review standard.

The Editor and his Associates initially review all submissions to the journal. At this stage, manuscripts may be rejected without peer review if they are not of high enough priority or not relevant to the journal. This fast rejection process means that authors are given a quick decision and do not need to wait for the review process.

Manuscripts that are not instantly rejected are sent out for peer review, usually to two independent reviewers. Based on the feedback from these reviewers and the Editors' judgment a decision is given on the manuscript.

Every article submitted will be conducted a “double-blind review” where the reviewed does not know who the author, and the author does not know who the reviewed. To make this possible, the author needs to submit two versions of the manuscripts. The first “complete” manuscripts were seen as a preliminary review and a second “blind” version where the author's name, address, and the identifying reference removed. Once your manuscript has been assessed for suitability by an editor, it will be reviewed on a “double-blind peer-reviewed” basis by anonymous and independent peer-reviewed experts.

Publication Ethics

What does "ethics" mean in journal publishing?

Being published in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential part of being a researcher. The benefits you receive as a writer (and to your funder and institution) are earned by ensuring that each manuscript adheres to established standards. Such a researcher must explain his manuscript accurately so that other people can use and apply it.

Strategic Management Business Journal establishes guidelines for publishing ethics that writers must understand and follow. There are also ethics guidelines for journal editors and peer reviewers. The Journal's Business Management Strategy also describes publishing policies and peer review in Scope & Purpose.

Strategic Management Business Journal (SMBJ) mission is to publish original and empirical research that demonstrates academic and practical relevance. Academic relevance means that research contributes to ongoing academic discussions and debates on relevant topics. Usually, this implies that the manuscript has a solid foundation and contributes to the theory. All manuscript published in the Strategic Management Business Journal (SMBJ) must be in the empirical context of the research.

The ideal text balances rigor with relevance and offers new aspects of topics requiring contemporary attention. Recency does not necessarily mean a focus on emerging phenomena: New approaches to examining established phenomena are equally interesting and relevant.

Authors should observe high standards with respect to publication ethics as set out by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). Falsification or fabrication of data, plagiarism, including duplicate publication of the authors' own work without proper citation, and misappropriation of the work are all unacceptable practices. Any cases of ethical misconduct are treated very seriously and will be dealt with in accordance with the COPE guidelines. visit http://publicationethics.org/.



All authors listed on the manuscript should have contributed significantly to the experimental design, its implementation, or analysis and interpretation of the data. All authors should have been involved in the writing of the manuscript at draft and any revision stages, and have read and approved the final version. Anyone who made major contributions to the writing of the manuscript should be listed as an author (e.g. "ghost writing" is prohibited by the Journal). Any other individuals who made less substantive contributions to the experiment or the writing of the manuscript should be listed in the acknowledgement section. Any change in authorship (including author order) after the initial manuscript submission must be approved in writing by all authors.



By submitting your manuscript to the journal it is understood that this it is an original manuscript and is unpublished work and is not under consideration elsewhere. Plagiarism, including duplicate publication of the author's own work, in whole or in part without proper citation is not tolerated by the journal

Duplicate publication occurs when an author reuses substantial parts of his or her own published work without providing the appropriate references. This can range from publishing an identical paper in multiple journals, to only adding a small amount of new data to a previously published paper.

Strategic Management Business Journal (SMBJ) editors assess all such cases on their individual merits. When plagiarism becomes evident post-publication, we may correct or retract the original publication depending on the degree of plagiarism, context within the published article and its impact on the overall integrity of the published study. Manuscripts submitted to the journal may be checked for originality using anti-plagiarism software
