GUIDANCE ON THE COMPOSITION AND STRUCTURE OF PAPERS SUBMITTED TO FORUM SCIENTIAE OECONOMIA

Articles should be written in English, in a clear, succinct and accessible manner. Authors must sign a statement upon submission for review indicating that the work submitted is their original work, complies with the ethical guidelines for research in the area of study, and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Breaches of ethical standards will result in immediate withdrawal of the manuscript from review, notification of the breach to readers of the journal and other affected parties (e.g. other journals where the work was published or under review; the original author of the work).
