Originality, quality and contribution of the manuscript are fundamental evaluation criteria. Accepted manuscripts must have clear results and well-defined conclusion and interpretation of findings. They have to have coherent scientific or applied contribution to the topic. The topic must be contemporary and interesting both to the business and academic community. The empirical part must be methodologically appropriate and results must be relevant to the topic or manuscript have to have applied contribution that will improve business practice.

Any form of conflict of interest in relation (reviewer-author; reviewer-editor; reviewer-institution) must be reported to the Editor in Chief as soon as reviewer has knowledge of that. It is vital to the reputation of the Journal that conflicts of interest be avoided. Therefore, it is our policy that Editors not review papers authored by their  relatives, close friends, colleagues, co-workers, students, or recent former students. The same policy applies to Referees: editors should not send papers to referees who work at an author's institution or who are known to have close ties to the author. In such case the Editorial Board will discuss and make final decision about of changing the Reviewer or other measures (rejection of the paper, black list reviewer, black list author ect.)

As far as possible in all communications with Author, we wish to avoid wording that could make the status of the paper seem unclear. In particular, when an author is asked to revise a paper, there is no guarantee that the revised paper will be accepted for publication. Usually, in fact, such revised papers could again be refereed.

The Editor in Chief may reroute a paper from an Editor/Reviewer to another, either when an Editor/Reviewer cannot handle a paper in a default time.
