In preliminary evaluation process, each paper is first checked for plagiarism and reviewed by the editorial office and, if it is judged suitable for this publication, it is then sent to two referees for double blind peer review. Preliminary evaluation process normally takes 1-2 weeks. Once editorial office selects the articles/manuscripts, these are sent to two referees for Subsequent Review Process. Reviewers do double blind peer review. Based on their recommendations, the editor then decides whether the paper should be accepted as is, revised or rejected. Normal review process takes 2-4 weeks.

Management and Administrative Sciences Review has strict policy about publication ethics. We are committed to Publication Ethics based on COPE Comments. All of submitted papers will check to ensuring non-plagiarism contents. The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal 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. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society of society-owned or sponsored journals.

Duties of the Publisher
We are committed to ensuring that advertising, reprint or other commercial revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions. In addition, Elsevier will assist in communications with other journals and/or publishers where this is useful to editors. Finally, we are working closely with other publishers and industry associations to set standards for best practices on ethical matters, errors and retractions--and are prepared to provide specialized legal review and counsel if necessary.
The peer review process is at the heart of the success of scientific publishing. As part of our commitment to the protection and enhancement of the peer review process, we have an obligation to assist the scientific community in all aspects of publishing ethics, especially in cases of (suspected) duplicate submission or plagiarism.
