  • International Journal of Economics, Management and Accounting

    International Journal of Economics, Management and Accounting formerly known as IIUM Journal of Economics and Management is an internationally refereed journal published twice yearly by the Kulliyyah of Economics and Management Sciences, International Islamic University, Malaysia.

    In line with the objectives of the Kulliyyah and the University, the Journal is dedicated to the development, promotion and understanding of Islamic Economics in its widest sense, including issues related to management and accounting, in order to keep scholars and relevant institutions informed on research in the field of Islamic Economics. Based on the Islamic worldview concerning God, man, nature and the concept and purpose of religion, this Journal promotes the idea that economic activity cannot, but be a part of al-din, and must be guided and developed within the twin epistemological foundations of revelation and reason. In the Islamic worldview, the former portrays the ultimate foundation of tawhid, while the latter acknowledges the intellect of man irrespective of religion or color. While acknowledging the great strides in conventional economics, the Journal is committed to the idea that ultimate solutions to human problems cannot be sought without reference to revelation and the Divine. Within this framework, the Journal focuses on theoretical, applied, methodological and interdisciplinary works dealing with historical or contemporary economic issues. The editorial board welcomes original submission in the areas of Economics (including relevant fiqh deliberations), Management and Accounting to cover historical, as well as methodological, conceptual, theoretical, analytical and applied issues. Apart from discussions from the Islamic perspective, articles can also be of the conventional sense, preferably pertaining to Muslim countries for case studies. The Editorial Board also welcomes book and article reviews of materials which are originally written in languages other than English.

We strive to abide by the Code of Conduct as defined by the Committee of Publication Ethics (COPE). Conformance to standards of ethical behavior is therefore expected of all parties involved: Authors, Editors, and Reviewers.

    Authors: Authors are obliged to participate in peer review process. Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. Authors should provide an objective discussion of the significance of research work as well as sufficient details and references to enable others to replicate the experiments. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable. Review articles should also be objective, comprehensive, and provide accurate accounts of the state of the art. When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in the published work, it is the author's obligation to promptly notify the journal editor or publisher and cooperate with the editor to retract or correct the paper. The authors should ensure that their work is entirely original and all data in the article are real and authentic.  If the work and/or words of others have been used, it must be acknowledged appropriately. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Authors should not submit articles describing essentially the same research to more than one journal. All submissions to International Journal of Economics, Management and Accounting will be screened using turnitin and must not score higher than 23% similarity index before being sent to reviewers. The corresponding author should ensure that there is a full consensus of all co-authors in approving the final version of the paper and its submission for publication. All authors should disclose any financial or other substantive conflict of interest that might be construed to influence the results or interpretation of their manuscript. All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed. If unethical behavior is recognized by sufficient evidence at any point, the editors will investigate the manuscript or published paper and may decide the outcome. Depending on the severity of the malpractice, the following actions can be applied: 

    • A warning letter to corresponding authors
    • Public notification about misconduct in editorial section and title homepage of the journal's website
    • Notification to the authorities or superiors of authors' affiliated institutions
    • Decline of submitted manuscript
    • Retraction of published paper

    In case of malpractice, authors may be banned from future submission for at least three years, unless permitted by the Editorial Board.

    Editors: Editors should evaluate manuscripts exclusively on the basis of their academic merit. The validation of the work in question and its importance should drive such decisions.  They should encourage debate and uphold academic integrity. Editors must protect individual data and the anonymity of the authors and reviewers. They also have a duty to act if any misconduct is suspected and to ensure the integrity of the academic record. The editors must not use unpublished information in the editors own research without the express written consent of the author. They should take reasonable responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper. Editors should not have any conflict of interest with respect to the manuscripts they accept/reject. Editors should be willing to publish corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies when needed. Editors should provide authors proper reasons for retracting articles if any retraction is decided. Statements and opinions expressed in the articles are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the editors or publisher, and the editors and publisher disclaim any responsibility or liability for such material.

    Reviewers: Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviews should be conducted objectively, and observations should be formulated clearly with supporting arguments, so that authors can use them for improving the paper. Reviewers are asked to maintain a positive and impartial, but critical attitude in evaluating manuscript. Reviewers should suggest relevant published work which may be cited. Any selected referee who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse himself/herself from the review process. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
