Publication Ethics

In order to maintain a journal of the highest quality, the principles of Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement is strictly adhered to. All articles not in accordance with these standards will be removed from the publication if malpractice is discovered at any time even after the publication.

APJIHT checks all papers in a double-blind peer review process. We also may check for plagiarism and falsification (manipulation of existing research data, tables, or images) and improper use of humans or animals in the research process when felt necessary. APJIHT reserves the right to use plagiarism detecting software to screen submitted papers at any times.

Authors and Authors' Responsibilities:
Asia-Pacific Journal of Innovation in Hospitality and Tourism (APJIHT) is a peer reviewed international journal committed to upholding the highest standards of publication ethics. Authors must ensure that they have written original works. In addition they must ensure that the manuscript has not been issued elsewhere. Any work or words of other authors, contributors, or sources (including online sites) should be appropriately credited and referenced. Authors are also responsible for language editing before submitting the article. Authors submitting their works to the journal for publication as original articles confirm that the submitted works represent their authors' contributions and have not been copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other works without clearly citing. All authors should disclose financial or other conflict of interest that might influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript (financial support for the project should be disclosed). When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author's obligation to promptly notify the journal editor and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper. An author agrees to the license agreement before submitting the article.

Peer-review Process:
All articles are reviewed (double blind) by at least two academic experts in the particular field of the submitted paper prior to acceptance. A maximum of 45 days/1.5 months is envisaged for the completion of the blind review process. Reminders will be sent to avoid late reviews.

Editors must ensure a fair double-blind peer-review of the submitted articles for publication. They will strive to prevent any conflict of interests between the author and editorial and review personnel. Editors will also ensure that all the information related to submitted manuscripts is kept as confidential before publishing. Editor-in-Chief will coordinate the work of the editors.

Reviewers evaluate manuscripts based on content without regard to ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, citizenship, religious belief or political philosophy of the authors. They must ensure that all the information related to submitted manuscripts is kept as confidential and must report to the Editor-in-Chief if they are aware of copyright infringement and plagiarism on the author’s side. They must evaluate the submitted works objectively as well as present clearly their opinions on the works in a clear way in the review form. Reviewers who feel unqualified to review a submitted article or know that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the Editor-in-Chief and excuse themselves from the review process.

Copyright policy:
Upon acceptance of an article, Authors will be asked to transfer copyright. This transfer will ensure the widest possible dissemination of information. A notification will be sent to the corresponding Author confirming receipt of the manuscript. If excerpts from other copyrighted works are included, the Author(s) must obtain written permission from the copyright owners and credit the source(s) in the article.
