Submission policies


All manuscripts must be the authors' original, unpublished work. The manuscript must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Copyright and Permissions

The paper does not infringe the copyright, or violate other rights, of any third party. Permissions to use reprinted material, adapted material, and material owned by other parties are the sole responsibility of the authors. The author of a manuscript takes full responsibility to all violations of the third party intellectual property as well as of the other laws.

Code of Research Conduct

By submitting a manuscript to IJCM, author(s) confirm that the research described in the paper complies with the "Code of Research Conduct" such as the one prepared by the Association for Information Systems (AIS Code of Research Conduct).

Blind Review

When preparing a manuscript for electronic submission, the authors should remove all identifying information such as names or affiliations or author notes. Information regarding authors is collected by the system on the manuscript submission form.  

Avoiding Biased Language

Authors should be particularly careful in dealing with gender, ethnic, sexual and other sensitive issues to avoid discrimination. Thus, authors should avoid terms or usages that are denigrating to those groups.

Against Ghostwriting and Guest Au­thorship

IJCM counteracts such phenomenon as „ghostwriting” and „guest au­thorship”, which are a symptom of scientific dishonesty. Every detected case will be exposed, including notification of appropriate institutions. Due to this the Edito­rial Board may ask the authors to reveal their contributions, and the information con­cern­ing the sources of financing the publication as well as the contribution of other scientific organizations, nongovernmental organizations and other entities.

IJCM does not allow any resubmission or final submission with changed authorship from the 1st submission.

In the submission process each of the authors must indicate his/her contribution to the submited manuscript.
