Peer Review Process

All papers submitted to Journal of Business Administration and Management are subjected to a stringent peer review process. This is to uphold the high quality of papers published in BAM and ensure that the reporting of research work is truthful and accurate.

Upon submission, the article is reviewed by BAM in-house editors to assess its suitability for the journal based on the editorial policy and procedural guidelines.
The Editor-in-Chief (EIC) carefully evaluates each manuscript to determine if its topic and content are suitable for consideration.
The accepted manuscripts are then assigned by the EIC to the associate editors according to their respective areas of expertise.
The associate editor selects reviewers from the editorial board or external reviewers who are suitably qualified to assess the paper.
Reviewers are asked to evaluate the manuscript’s originality, methodology, contribution to the literature, presentation of results and support for the conclusions, and appropriate referencing of previous relevant studies
Post-evaluation by the reviewers, the manuscript is sent to the associate editor who makes one of the following recommendations: accept, accept with minor revision, or reject.
The manuscript is then passed to the EIC who makes the final decision.
If EIC suggests minor revisions, authors are given a maximum of 7 days to revise and resubmit the article.
If EIC suggests major revisions, authors are given a maximum of 14 days to revise and resubmit the article.
After re-submission of the revised manuscript, the above steps are repeated before the paper is accepted for publication.
Authors of rejected submissions are advised to make an appeal in writing to editorial-bam@piscomed.com.
Written appeals should include specific reasons for the appeal and point-by-point response to the reviewers' suggestions and criticisms.
Decisions made on appeals by the EIC are final and no further considerations will be made.

It is to be noted that even perceptions of conflicts of interest are as important as the actual conflicts of interest.

Any agreements with study sponsors (for profit or non-profit), which interfere with the authors’ access to the study data, ability to analyze or interpret the data and publish manuscripts independently according to their own decision, should be avoided by authors at all costs.

A declaration of interests for all authors must be received before an article can be reviewed and accepted for publication.
