Guidelines for Editors and Reviewers

The Editorial Board consists of international experts in their respective fields. All members of the Board occupy high positions in educational and research institutions. The roles of the Editorial Board members are the following:

  • provide expertise in definite research field;
  • review submitted papers;
  • advise on journal policy and scope and participate in the journal development;
  • propose subject definition and conference choice for special issues. Also, editorial members may be guest editors of special issue;
  • promote the journal at conferences, seminars, workshops, and relevant public events
  • attract new potential authors;

Guest editors play a vital role in ensuring the quality of special content publications, such as Special Issues. Guest editors overlook the process, from proposal to publication.

The Editorial Board is reviewed every two years, which means exclusion of inactive members and addition of the new ones.

We appreciate applications from the editorial candidates. To submit an application, please send an e-mail to an editorial assistant of the selected journal and attach a file with your CV (containing the current place of work, occupation, education, the scope of your scientific interest, types of activity, list of publications, list of the journals in which you occupy the positions of an editor or a reviewer, e-mail for contact and a link to personal page at you university).

Duties of editors

We strongly recommend that Editors get acquainted with and follow COPE Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.

The editors of the journal are responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal will be published. The editor may confer with the members of the Editorial Board in making this decision.

Fair play. The editors evaluate manuscripts without regard to the nature of the authors or the host institution including race, gender, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.

Confidentiality. The editors, members of the Editorial Boards, and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone except the authors of the paper, reviewers, potential reviewers, and the publisher, for appropriate reasons.

Disclosure. Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted paper should not be used in the own research of the editors or the members of the Editorial Board without the express written consent of the author.

Duties of reviewers

We strongly recommend that all reviewers get acquainted with and follow COPE Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers.

Confidentiality. Information regarding submitted manuscripts should be kept confidential during and after review process. Also, reviewers should not reveal any details about reviewing manuscript to anybody.

Standards of objectivity. Reviewers should be objective while conducting reviews. All the comments and recommendations should be supported with relevant arguments.

Disclosure. Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in a reviewer's own research without the express written consent of the author. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage.

Peer Review

Peer review plays a vital and critical role in the publication of scholarly articles through assessment of validity, quality and originality of submitted articles. It is considered to be the most effective and valid form of research evaluation to help select the highest quality articles for publication. Authors can receive the information regarding the peer-review stage of their manuscripts through editorial assistants.

Review process

Editorial staff transfers all submitted manuscripts to one of the Editors for initial evaluation in order to establish if the manuscript meets the editorial criteria. Initial evaluation includes assessment if the manuscript is suitable for the journal or special issue, authors’ qualification and background, and plagiarism levels. Papers that don’t meet these criteria, as well as obviously poor manuscripts, will be rejected without sending for further external review.

If the papers provide potential interest for readers and present importance to the scientists in the relevant field of the journal’s scope, Editors suggest external peer-reviewers (selection of peer-reviewers is based on expertise, reputation, specific recommendations and our own previous experience of a reviewer's characteristics). Alternatively, editorial staff will send manuscripts to qualified Editorial Board members or reviewers from our database.

All manuscripts are “double-blind” peer-reviewed, which means that reviewers do not possess any information about the authors’ identities and vice versa. If one of the editors submits the manuscript for publication in the journal, editorial staff transfers this manuscript to another Editor or one of the Editorial Board members without disclosing any information about the author.

After the manuscripts have been reviewed, Editors receive a Referee Report with point-by-point evaluation and comments. Based on the suitability of selected reviewers, adequacy of reviewer comments and overall scientific quality of the paper, Editors make one of the following decisions:

  • Publish unaltered
  • Consider after minor changes
  • Consider after major changes
  • Reject without further consideration

If the authors are required to revise the paper, they ought to provide revised manuscript along with Response to the Reviewers. All authors can receive Referee Report on demand without revealing the identity of the reviewer and appeal against editorial decisions by response to the referees with authors’ arguments and explanations. Articles may or may not be sent to reviewers after author revision, dependent on whether the reviewer requested to see the revised version and the wishes of the Editor.

Expectations from reviewers

During the peer-review process, report preparation, and after refereeing we expect from Editorial Board members and reviewers to:

  • respond in a reasonable time-frame, especially if reviewer can not perform the review, including intentional delay;
  • declare if they are not experts in the field the paper is relevant to;
  • declare any potentially conflicting or competing interests (which may, for example, be personal, financial, intellectual, professional, political or religious) and seek advice from the Editorial Board in this case;
  • decline to review if they feel unable to provide a fair and unbiased review or they are involved with any of the work in the manuscript or its reporting;
  • to provide honest and fair assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the research and the manuscript;
  • send completed report form along with the reviewed manuscript;
  • be specific in their criticisms, and provide evidence with appropriate references to substantiate general statements to help editors in their evaluation and decision;
  • suggest additional research if it helps strengthen or extend the work;
  • ensure their comments and recommendations for the editor are consistent with their report for the authors;
  • any suggestions and comments must be based on valid academic or technological reasons;
  • continue to keep details of the manuscript and its review confidential during and after reviewing;

Conflicts of Interest

Conflicts of interest comprise those which may not be fully apparent and which may influence the judgment of author, reviewers, and editors. They have been described as those which, when revealed later, would make a reasonable reader feel misled or deceived. They may be personal, commercial, ideological, academic, or financial.

When authors submit a manuscript of any type or format they are responsible for disclosing all financial and personal relationships that might bias or be seen to bias their work. This includes declaration of all sources of funding. All authors that publish in our journals are obliged to declare conflicts of interest if there are any. Declared conflicts of interest will be considered by the editor and Conflict of Interest Statement will appear in our journals at the end of the published article.

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. Reviewers should be objective and constructive, declare all potential conflicting interest, seeking advice from the editors if they are unsure whether something constitutes a relevant interest; do not allow their reviews to be influenced by the origins of a manuscript, by the nationality, religious or political beliefs, gender or other characteristics of the author, which could be implied in the manuscript.

If the founders decide to publish as authors or co-authors, they are required to include the Conflict of Interest Statement in the Publication Agreement. This statement will be also included in their published paper.

Editors who make final decisions about manuscripts should not make editorial and publication decisions if they have conflicts of interest related to articles under consideration. Editorial staff must not use information received through working with manuscripts for private gain. Guest editors should follow these same procedures.

Corporatism in Korea: a Yuhan case study

Hoppi Yoon, Senior Research Fellow, University of Jember, Indonesia

Abstract. Yuhan is a small-and-medium-size pharmaceutical manufacturing company in South Korea (Korea). It is well known in the industry as a paragon of credibility and sustainability. Concerning the small-but-powerful firm’s remarkable triumph, over the past two decades, a number of academics and researchers have examined the model of management within the context of business management. Yet the firm’s corporatist management in terms of validity should be considered beyond the area of business administration. Unlike previous academic works, this paper assesses the Yuhan experiments within the context of corporate corporatism.
The chief argument of this new approach is that corporatism and solidarity grounded Yuhan campaign (stark contrast concepts of neoliberal management) may offer meaningful lessons for the neoliberalism embedded Korean commercial society. While infrastructural conditions of both the public and private sectors are feeble to upheld corporatism, Yuhan style corporate corporatism, as a harbinger of social democratic corporatism, could be an alternative model to supplement such weakness. In rivalry with neoliberal campaigns that persistently creates social polarization and disunity; the solidarism-based Yuhan model would work a solution to overcome threadbare safety net for working and lower middle class in Korean society.

Employee retention and talent management at a sugar mill in South Africa

Pierre Joubert, PhD, Head of Department: Human Resource Management, Vaal University of Technology, South Africa
Dolly Madau, PhD, Emeritus Professor, University of Johannesburg, South Africa
Bennie Grobler, Tech: HRM, HR Manager, South Africa

Abstract. Talent shortage due to failure by organisations to retain staff with the necessary expertise is becoming a reality and it is important that this challenge is addressed expeditiously. This article focuses on the relationship between employee retention and talent management at a sugar mill with a view to ascertaining whether or not the organisation is possibly the reason for employees leaving its employ. The study involved investigating and highlighting the need and importance of talent management, including the attraction and retention of staff with required skills. The study touched on the importance of competitive incentives and rewards in the attraction and retention of employees. A survey was conducted among 137 employees. Data was analysed by means of descriptive and inferential (correlations and regressions) statistics. The interpreted results indicated that staff satisfaction leads to high productivity and plays a significant role in the retention of staff. The results further indicated that management strategies are not being used to the extent that they should be in the retention of talent, whilst most respondents felt that fringe benefits that used to be offered by the organisation had a positive influence on staff satisfaction and on the retention of talented employees. The study revealed a commonly held perception by the non-designated group that people from designated groups use the provisions of the Employment Equity Act to find better opportunities with other organisations.

Syamsudin Syamsudin, Faculty of Economics and Business, Universitas Muhammadiyah Surakarta, Indonesia
Erna Setiany, Faculty of Economics and Business, Universitas Mercu Buana, Indonesia
Sajidah Sajidah, Nikos Distribution Indonesia, Indonesia

Abstract. This study aims to analyse the effect of gender diversity in in both the board of commissioner and board of director, as well as the effect of education background of the president commissioner to the firm value. Gender diversity is measured from the proportion of women in board of commissioner and board of director, while the education background is measured by the education background of the president commissioner. In this research the firm value is measured by Tobins Q.
The samples used in this study are 70 manufacturing companies listed in Indonesian Stock Exchange in the year of 2012. This study employs multiple linear regression to draw the research conclusion.
The analysis results shows that gender diversity in both the board of commissioner and board of director significantly effects firm value. Contrary, the education background of the president commissioner does not effect firm value. This result support the argument that diversity of boards will, through various ways, affect firm financial value in the long and short term.

Abstract. Nowadays budgetary funds still prevail among sources of financing of the projects in the area of increasing the energy efficiency of the regional economy in the Russian Federation. For example, in the Tver region in 2016, 82% of the projects for the modernization of the heat supply infrastructure and 100% for the modernization of the electricity supply infrastructure were implemented at the expense of the budget. At the same time, there is a decrease in the total amount of state financing of energy efficiency projects, due to a high proportion of the budget deficit of the subjects of the Russian Federation. According to the agency ACRA (information dated April, 12,2017 at www.acra-ratings.ru) 58 out of 85 regional budgets for 2017 were accepted with a total deficit of 193 billion rubles. At the same time, the urgency of applying organizational and financial mechanisms for the implementation of energy efficient projects involving alternative financing is growing. The article systematizes the views on the perspective mechanisms for implementing projects in the field of increasing the energy efficiency of the regional economy, including taking into account the analysis of problems of their application in the example of the Tver region. The authors studied existing organizational and financial mechanisms for energy-efficient projects, including public private and municipal private partnerships, and the Local Initiatives Support Program.

Kola O. Odeku, Faculty of Management and Law, School of Law, Department of Public and Environmental Law, University of Limpopo, South Africa
Simbarashe R. Gundani, Faculty of Management and Law, School of Law, Department of Public and Environmental Law, University of Limpopo, South Africa

Abstract. This article examinesthe socio-economic impacts and effects of unlawful electricity tariff increase in South Africa. Access to electricity is a vital socio-economic right in South Africa because of its intrinsic role in the fulfilment of other social economic rights. Theavailability and accessibility of electricity guarantees the success of many businesses and the survival of many households particularly the rural poor.Eskom, a governmental parastatal, generates, transmit and distributes electricity for the people and charges for theseservices rendered based on the tariff approved by the National Energy Regulator of South Africa (NERSA). Recently, NERSA decided to approve tariff increase requested by Eskom which was against the Electricity Regulation Act 4 of 2006 and the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa 1996. This increase was contested and nullified in court.If this tariff increase had not been challenged in the court, it would have had a devastating impact on the well-being of the people particularly the poor.Using literature relevant to socio-economic rights to modern-energy particularly electricity,this article accentuates that electricity is a basic socio-economic right in South Africa that must be accessible and affordable to all. It explains the importance of judicial intervention in ensuring that socio-economic rights are made available and accessible to the people. It points out that the court will not hesitate in using its judicial power to extend any opportunity which allows poor people to access and enjoy right to modern energy-electricityand other socio-economic rights in South Africa.

Abstract. Reengineering is a term that has become widely popular in the marketing theory and practice worldwide in the recent years. The reengineering theory came to life in the US but has since quickly spread across western countries. Three major drivers have gradually formed as part of the reengineering theory that force companies in advanced market economies to make radical changes to their business processes. The key drivers are customers, competition and changes. Western companies began to intensively follow these new trends in the development of a business environment in early 1980s.
Many Slovak enterprises also found themselves in a situation that requires a radical reconstruction of their business processes. The main causes include: radically changed external environment in which businesses operate, associated with a transition from a centrally planned and controlled economy to a market economy; demise of traditional markets; other external and internal, specified and unspecified causes of a crisis of corporations.

Abstract. Although quality is a multidimensional concept – defined by numerous approaches to quality management (e.g. TQM, Kaizen, ISO 9001), strategies and operational activities – ISO 9001 standards are leading norms in Europe. Quality management has been adopted in Poland and the Czech Republic, which translates directly into a number of certificates issued by accredited certification units. The aim of the paper is to analyze the dynamics of issuing Quality Management System (QSM) certificates in Poland and the Czech Rep., certificates of compliance with ISO 9001 standard, in comparison to selected European countries and taking into account the situation in the world in this field. The study also identifies particular limitations such as the lack of data needed to conduct in-depth multi-criteria analyses.

Abstract. Evaluation of mining company is complex task. Several various methods can be used for estimation of mining company value, but some of them are not usable. The reason is specific character of mining industry. Except of risks, connected with financing of mining projects, existence of individual raw materials, there is also certain cyclicality of price, changes in costs structure, stock exchange aspects and considerable volatility. This is marked during value determination due to the probability of analyzed indexes development.
Goal of the contribution is to find out which methods are proper for evaluation of mining companies and to explain, why such companies are evaluated by these methods.

Abstract. As consumers have become more refined with regards to the marketing arena, it is important for fashion retailers and brand managers to try and gain some understanding of how consumers collect and review information, which ultimately affects their brand choice. This study complements the growing body of literature by examining perceived social risk and its influence on apparel brand choice among young female undergraduate student consumers, as literature shows that public-ally consumed products are the ones with a high level of social risk. A qualitative methodology was used to conduct this study. The research instruments that were used to conduct this study are semi-structured interviews and focus groups. The analysis of the qualitative data was conducted through the use of thematic analysis. The results also showed that most undergraduate female students experience anxiousness, social influence, peer pressure and they pay attention to the advice of significant others in their social network when choosing apparel brands. Recommendations were made for fashion retailers and brand managers on how to manage perceived social risk in order to retain female undergraduate student consumers. Lastly future research directions were clearly articulated.
