The Annales. Ethics in Economic Life standards of integrity are based on the recommendations of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Authors reporting results of original research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. Underlying data should be represented accurately in the manuscript. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.

An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Parallel submission of the same manuscript to more than one journal constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.

When an author discovers a significant error or inaccuracy in his/her own published work, it is the author’s obligation to promptly notify the journal’s editor or publisher and cooperate with them to either retract the paper or to publish an appropriate erratum.

To maintain high standards of scientific integrity, the Editorial Board obliges authors to disclose information about the entities contributing to the creation of the articles submitted. The editors also oblige authors to disclose all founding sources, the contribution of research institutions, scientific associations and other entities. This information will remain confidential and will not affect the decision to publish the paper.

Furthermore, the editors indicate that the practices such as ghostwriting and guest authorship are signs of scientific misconduct. The Editorial Board would like to state that all cases of such practices detected will be exposed and the affiliated institutions of the author will be notified.

The journal does not collect any submission nor processing charges.
