Ethical policy of JOURNAL OF AGRIBUSINESS AND RURAL DEVELOPMENT follows the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) recommendations (http://publicationethics.org/).
COPE aims to define best practice in the ethics of scholarly publishing and to assist editors, editorial board members, owners of journals and publishers to achieve this goal.
The following presents only a few guidelines to the ethical policy of JOURNAL OF AGRIBUSINESS AND RURAL DEVELOPMENT. Please see the original documents to obtain more detailed requirements.
Duties of Editors:
Editors are responsible for everything published in their journals. They should strive to meet the needs of readers and authors, ensure the high quality of the published material, protect the confidentiality of all information and be willing to publish corrections, clarifications, reactions and apologies when the need arises.
Duties of Authors:
Authors must confirm that all the work in the submitted manuscript is original and acknowledge and cite content reproduced from other sources.
They should obtain permission to reproduce any content from other sources and declare any potential conflict of interest.
The authorship of the paper should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of presented work.

Duties of Reviewers:
Reviewers need to be objective and constructive in their reviews and provide feedback that will help the authors to improve their manuscript, keep all manuscript and review details confidential and to alert the editor to any published or submitted content that is substantially similar to that under review.
Conflict of interest
Conflict of interest is a situation in which financial or other personal considerations from authors or reviewers have the potential to compromise or bias professional judgment and objectivity. Authors and reviewers should declare all conflicts of interest relevant to the work under consideration (i.e. relationships, both financial and personal, that might interfere with the interpretation of the work) to avoid the potential for bias.
