Ethical Code of Conduct for

The Accounting Historians Journal



Plagiarism is not acceptable in The Accounting Historians Journal. The U.S. National Science Foundation defines plagiarism as “the appropriation of another person’s ideas, processes, results, or words without giving appropriate credit” (45 Code of Federal Regulations, Section 689.1). As a result, authors should not engage in plagiarism - verbatim or near-verbatim copying, or very close paraphrasing, of text or results from another’s work. In addition, authors should not engage in self-plagiarism (also known as duplicate publication) - unacceptably close replication of his or hers own previously published text or results without acknowledgement of the source.  To preclude an appearance of plagiarism, all verbatim or near-verbatim copying from their own or another’s works should be placed in quotes and referenced in a list of references. In a similar manner, an author should not draw upon fraudulent or fictitious data to support their conclusions.    If an author or authors later discover that any data reported in an accepted article is fictitious or erroneous, it is their responsibility to provide The Accounting Historians Journal with a retraction or correction. Appropriate acknowledgement of substantive support for research is standard for researchers in Colleges of Business worldwide and should be honored for works submitted to The Accounting Historians Journal.
