It is necessary to conduct your research ethically. Corporate Management Review (CMR) takes publishing ethics seriously. Hence, it is important to follow the APA ethical standards for all parties involved in the act of publishing: journal editors, scholars, researchers, authors, peer reviewers, and journal publishers.
CMR requests authors to strictly follow APA ethical standards. CMR requests authors to keep their data available for at least five years after the date of publication by CMR.
Contributors are required to confirm that they have complied with APA ethical standards in the treatment of their research sample, animal or human, or to describe the necessary treatment in detail.

The reviewer who feels unqualified to review the assigned articles or affirms that he or she is unable to complete the review before the deadline should inform the editor of these issues in a timely manner. The reviewer should keep the submitted article as highly confidential. The article must not be discussed with or disclosed to others. The reviewer should notify the editor and recuse himself or herself from reviewing the assigned article if there is a conflict of interest. Specifically, the reviewer must avoid reviewing any submitted article authored or coauthored by a person with whom the reviewer has a close personal or academic relationship for the purpose of reducing reviewing biases.
