The Australian Research Council (ARC) is responsible for administering Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA), Australia’s national research evaluation framework. ERA identifies and promotes excellence across the full spectrum of research activity in Australia’s higher education institutions.

ERA is a comprehensive quality evaluation of all research produced in Australian universities against national and international benchmarks. The ratings are determined and moderated by committees of distinguished researchers, drawn from Australia and overseas. The unit of evaluation is broadly defined as the Field of Research (FoR) within an institution based on the Australia and New Zealand Standard Classification (ANZSRC).

ERA is based on expert review informed by a range of indicators. The indicators used in ERA include a range of metrics such as citation profiles which are common to disciplines in the natural sciences, and peer review of a sample of research outputs which is more broadly common in the humanities and social sciences.

The set of discipline-specific indicators has been developed in close consultation with the research community. This approach ensures that the indicators used are both appropriate and necessary, which minimizes the resourcing burden of ERA for Government and universities and ensures that ERA results are robust and broadly accepted.

DEFINITIONS
Accepted Manuscript
 
The manuscript of an Article that has been accepted for publication and which typically includes author-incorporated changes suggested during submission, peer review, and editor-author communications.  The Accepted Manuscript should not be added to or enhanced in any way to appear more like, or to substitute for, the Published Journal Article.  The Accepted Manuscript should include a link to the formal publication through the relevant DOI.

Commercial Use
 
The use or posting of Articles:
for commercial gain – for example by associating advertising with the full-text of the Article, by providing hosting services to other repositories or to other organizations, or charging fees for document delivery or access;
to substitute for the services provided directly by the publisher – for example article aggregation, systematic distribution via e-mail lists or share buttons, posting, indexing or linking by commercial companies for use by customers of such companies (e.g. pharmaceutical companies and physician-prescribers).

Internal Institutional Use
 
Use by the author's institution for classroom teaching at the institution and for internal training purposes (including distribution of copies, paper or electronic, and use in course packs and courseware programs, but not in MOOCs – Massive Open Online Courses) and inclusion of the Article in applications for grant funding. For authors employed by companies, the use by that company for internal training purposes.

Personal Use
 
Use by an author in the author’s classroom teaching (including distribution of copies, paper or electronic) or presentation by an author at a meeting or conference (including distribution of copies to the delegates attending such meeting), distribution of copies (including through e-mail) to known research colleagues for their personal use, use in a subsequent compilation of the author’s works, inclusion in a thesis or dissertation, preparation of other derivative works such as extending the Article to book-length form, or otherwise using or re-using portions or excerpts in other works (with full acknowledgment of the original publication of the Article).

Preprint
 
Author’s own write-up of research results and analysis that has not been peer reviewed, nor had any other value added to it by a publisher (such as formatting, copy editing, technical enhancements, and the like). Preprints should not be added to or enhanced in any way in order to appear more like, or to substitute for, the Published Journal Article.

Ethical Guidelines


ETHICAL PRINCIPLES FOR AUTHORS

Originality
Authors should submit only manuscripts that contain original research based on original ideas, results, data, etc. In order to submit a manuscript, you need to have a user account on our website.

Transparency
Authors must specify in the manuscript:
1.  All entities who contributed to the article, including research funders and all organizations that collected or processed data or provided any other assistance.
2.  All persons who made significant contributions to the manuscript must be included in the list of authors. There are no rules about the number or order of authors. It is assumed that all authors have equal contributions to the manuscript. If this is not the case, complete the “COAUTHORS DECLARATION FORM” and specify this in the manuscript.
3.  When completing the “COAUTHORS DECLARATION FORM” present the authors according to the importance of their contribution, starting with the author with the highest contribution.
4.  If the manuscript is realized in collaboration with additional persons who, while not fulfilling the criteria of authorship, did contribute to the work, these persons must be named in the “COAUTHORS DECLARATION” form, listing their names and specifying their contributions.

Changing the list of authors after the manuscript is submitted is possible taking into account the following specifications:
A person can be added to or deleted from the list of authors.
Every author named in the manuscript must consent to the change.
If the request comes between the submission and review period, the editor and publisher will ask some clarification about how the “Coauthor declaration” was completed and obtain the required consent prior to making the change.
If the request comes after the manuscript is published, publishers with managing editor will verify the consent of the coauthors and then try to find the best resolution to the problem.


Plagiarism
All submitted manuscripts must be original and must include the result of the author’s research. By submitting a manuscript to be revised and to be published in the journal/ proceeding or to be presented in an IABE conference, the authors assume responsibility for the entire contents of the manuscript.

By submitting a manuscript for review, the author takes the responsibility that the manuscript is presented in the final version, is original, does not contain elements of plagiarism and there are no conflicts of interest from the author.

If elements of plagiarism are detected, the author is legally liable for all damages.

Publication Ethics


CONFLICTS OF INTEREST
The IABE has a responsibility to provide only quality academic research articles to the public.
In order to ensure the credibility of scientific articles published in our journals, it is necessary to pay special attention to any conflicts of interest that may arise in the process of publishing. Conflicts of interest can occur when a person (author, editor, or reviewer) is impeded from acting impartially because of a relevant personal, financial, intellectual, or political relationship with another person or organization. IABE requires all authors, editors, and reviewers to declare any conflicts of interest that may affect their decisions.
Authors
At the moment of submission, authors are responsible for recognizing and disclosing any conflicts of interest. Authors must specify all potential conflicts of interest, including personal or financial affiliations and relationships with persons or organizations that funded or otherwise supported the research, including persons who collected or processed data.
Editors
Editors will disclose any potential conflict of interest related to their activity for the journal. They will not be involved in any decisions related to the article in which a conflict of interest exists. If necessary, editors will require statements about conflicts of interest from the authors. The editors will not be influenced in their decisions regarding any manuscript by IABE.
Reviewers
If a reviewer identifies a potential conflict of interest, he or she will inform the editor about this situation and will not continue to review the manuscript.
If for any reason, a conflict of interest occurs, all persons in this situation must present detailed information about:
Type of conflict of interest (affiliation, funding sources, financial interest, etc.)
Name of the person or organization with a relevant relationship to the person (author, editor, or reviewer)
Type of relationship (personal, financial, intellectual, political, etc.)

When a conflict of interest is disclosed, the article must contain a phrase that describes the conflict.
PLAGIARISM
Plagiarism represents a violation of academic ethics and one aim of IABE is to eliminate unethical behavior.
Plagiarism represents the exposure in a scientific research of paragraphs, ideas, data, procedures, methods, theories or scientific results derived from other scientific research papers, without mentioning this and without making any reference to the original sources or intellectual property of the author.
Self-plagiarism occurs in situations when the content of an article shows similar content to other articles written by the same author.
Authors may use information from outside sources, provided that complete information is given about each source. In presenting information from an outside source, authors must use one of the following methods:
For citation, use quotation marks for paragraphs taken verbatim from a source and then give detailed information about the source of the quote.
For paraphrase of concepts, major ideas, or a summary phrase in the author’s own words, the paraphrase must be followed by an indication of the source or sources used.

Each source citation must include:
A mention of all cases where parts of the authors’ scientific research used another source
Source information about table, graphs and figures when these are imported from other sources
Complete information about the source (author, title, name of publication, number, volume, pages, date of publication)
In the bibliography, a complete list of all sources used in the research. Authors can use different types of sources, such as printed sources (books, magazines, journals, articles, etc.) and electronic sources (websites, online articles, etc.)

IABE condemns any form of plagiarism and aims to identify and reject all scientific works that include elements of plagiarism. IABE uses expert reviewers with vast experience in order to identify and prevent any form of plagiarism. Additionally, the IABE uses iThenticate to identify any form of plagiarism.

By submitting a manuscript to be revised and published in the journal/ proceeding or to be presented in an IABE conference, the authors assume responsibility for the entire contents of the manuscript.

By submitting a manuscript for review, the author takes responsibility that the manuscript is presented in the final version, is original, does not contain elements of plagiarism and is free from any conflicts of interest on the part of the author.
If elements of plagiarism are detected, the author is legally liable for all damages.
COPYRIGHT
Copyright protects original articles, research, etc. from use without first receiving permission from the other person. Manuscripts or cases submitted for publication should be original contributions and should not be under consideration for any other publication at the same time. Authors submitting manuscripts/cases for publication warrant that the work is not an infringement of any existing copyright, infringement of proprietary right, invasion of privacy, or libel. Authors further indemnify, defend, and hold IABE or sponsor(s) harmless from any damages, expenses, and costs against any breach of such warranty. For ease of dissemination and to ensure proper policing of use, manuscripts/cases and contributions become the legal copyright of IABE unless otherwise agreed to in writing. At the moment of publishing, the author transfers exclusive publication rights to IABE. In order to reproduce parts from an article, authors need to obtain written permission from IABE. It is also necessary for every author to ask permission in order to republish any material published by IABE. Authors should know that at the time of subscription they need to meet all legal obligations regarding the manuscript.
PUBLICITY AND SPONSORSHIP POLICY
Publicity
Publicity policy aims to promote professional practices in advertising. IABE reserves the right to periodically revise this policy in order to maintain a high degree of quality of information provided by our journals, brochures, and website.

These principles provide guidance for entities who wish to advertise through IABE:
Advertisement will not contain inaccurate information and will provide all relevant information about the product or service presented. All information will be clear and understandable.
