Peer Review Process

The Business Management Review uses a double-blind peer-review process. To facilitate anonymity in peer-reviewing, the author's name or similar identification marks do not appear on any page of a manuscript other than on a separate sheet. The separate sheet bears the name(s) of the author(s), the title of the article, contact addresses, and a short biographical note. Initially, the Chief Editor receives a manuscript and does an in-house review to ensure it conforms to the scope, format and policies of the journal. If the manuscript conforms, the editor sends it out to two reviewers who are anonymous to the author. The double-blind review intends to ensure that the submitted manuscript is judged fairly, keeping bias out of the equation and the reviewer is given some level of protection against criticism. The review focuses on the quality of the manuscript in terms of its scholarly content, structure, and originality. This process takes six (6) to eight (8) weeks. Depending on the outcome of the review process, the author will be required to undertake major or minor corrections as suggested by the reviewers. In case major corrections are suggested, the author is supposed to resubmit the revised work and this will be sent back to the reviewers for vetting. In some cases, the manuscript may be rejected outright.  Once the review process is over, the editors then make the final decision.


Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.


Statement of Malpractice

Business Management Review encourages adherence to the best standards of publication ethics and takes serious measures against publication malpractices. Authors should only submit original works to constantly maintain the integrity of the journal. As such, all submitted manuscripts are subjected to the Turnitin software or other plagiarism check software to determine any cases of plagiarism, in all its forms. Manuscripts which have already been published or are still under review elsewhere should not be submitted. The journal retains the right to retract already published works, if cases of plagiarism or other forms of publication malpractices are discovered. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to reproduce any material in which they do not own copyright, to be used in both print and electronic media, and for ensuring that the appropriate acknowledgements are included in their manuscript.
