Ethical Guideline for Journal Publication
The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed KOM57 is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method.
