Role of Editors: The role of the editors is to evaluate the suitability of submitted manuscripts for the journal, including:
(a) The quality of the manuscript.
(b) Whether it meets the Aims and Scope of the journal.
(c) The originality of the work.
The editors will not disclose information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author or other members of the editorial board. Editors will ensure the prompt handling of the review process. Being blind peer reviewed journal the reviewers or potential reviewers will only review the papers and have no information regarding the authors. The managing editors along with the associate editors will evaluate the merit of manuscripts for intellectual content without regard to race, gender, country of origin, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation.
Role of Reviewers: Peer review is essential to the journal in assisting in making editorial decisions and assisting authors in manuscript improvement. Reviewers should point out relevant publications not cited in the manuscript and point out any similarities with previously published works. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts with conflicts of interest, competitive, financial, or collaborative. If a potential reviewer feels unqualified to review the manuscript, that reviewer should notify the editors immediately and decline the review. Manuscripts received for review will be treated as confidential documents and not shown or discussed with other without authorization from the editors. Authors should expect to receive reviewer reports normally within three 3-4months. Reviewer misconduct (breach of confidentiality, delay of peer review, plagiarism, or conflicts of interest) will not be tolerated.
Role of Authors: Authors of original research (not previously published or under consideration for publication elsewhere) should be an accurate presentation of the work carried out, a discussion of the significance of the work in context with previous works, and should contain sufficient experimental detail to allow others to replicate the work. Appropriate citation of previously published works must always be included. Authors should disclose any financial or other conflicts of interest that may be construed as influencing the data or interpretation. All sources of financial support should be disclosed. Authorship should be limited to those persons who have made a significant contribution to the work in terms of conception, design, experimental implementation, and data analysis and interpretation. All persons making significant contributions should be included as co-authors. If an author discovers a significant error in the published work, the author is obligated to inform the journal editor in order to either correct or retract the paper.
Role of the Publisher: The journal is the official journal of the Bengal Economic Association (Bangiya Arthaniti Parishad) published by the association. In cases of proven methodical/scientific/technical misconduct, plagiarism, or deceitful publication, the publisher, in consultation with the editorial board, will take appropriate action to elucidate the situation, publish an erratum, or withdraw the work in question.
