IFSA Publishing Ethics and Malpractice Statements

There are appropriate standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the publishing of journal articles: the authors, the journal editors, the peer reviewers, and the publisher. This publication ethics statement is based on COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors. The Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) provides resources for journal editors, peer reviewers, and authors on the topic of professional publishing standards. In addition to COPE, the following organizations have also collaborated to identify best practices for scholarly publications: the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA), the World Association of Medical Editors (WAME) and World Medical Association (WMA) - principles embodied in the Declaration of Helsinki.

Taking into account that Blockchain and Cryptocurrency journal is an international journal, the number of articles from one country cannot exceed 60 % in each issue (it will be calculated by checking the first author's nationality). If plagiarism or/and double submission problems were found, all authors of that paper cannot submit paper to our journal for two years. And that paper will be removed even though it was published. The publication fee is not refunded in these cases. Please see the Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement.
