Ethical Standards:

The Review of Business endorses the responsible research standards for both its authors and editors/reviewers promulgated by the World Conference on Research Integrity ( The Review of Business subscribes to both the Singapore statement on research integrity and the Montreal statement  on research integrity in cross-boundary research collaborations. This journal affirms that the word ‘boundary’ includes national, cultural, institutional, disciplinary and knowledge demarcations. Both the Singapore statement and the Montreal statement seek to affirm and preserve the integrity of both the research published in a journal and the process that resulted in that publication. Furthermore, the Editor of the Review of Business seeks to avoid criticisms of the research publication process as documented by  Grassmann (1986, Interfaces, 16.2: 43-51) and by Macdonald (2015, Journal of Management Inquiry, 24.3:264-279).
