The KBI.Media Publishing Policy
The author must disclose any past distribution and/or publishing of any portion of the content to the Editor for consideration and must provide proper attribution to the earlier distribution and/or publication of the material.
Furthermore, KBI does not accept fraudulent activity such as manipulating the peer review process or using submission or review farms (not legitimate third-party submission agencies). Unpublished contributions will be automatically rejected from further consideration in the journal if KBI has strong suspicions or proof of such conduct.
If there is evidence of such behaviour on a published work, KBI will arrange for the manuscript to be re-reviewed in accordance with the Committee on Publication Ethics’ guidelines (COPE). Based on the re-reviews, an editorial judgement will be taken, which may result in amending the academic record, such as a correction note, expression of concern, or retraction. Furthermore, KBI maintains the right to notify the appropriate institutions or associations.
