Ethics & Statement
The Development and Society (D&S) is committed to fair and professional dealing in all aspects of our publishing operations. Our role is to publish original work of value to the intellectual community in the best possible form and to the highest possible standards. We expect similar standards from our reviewers and authors. Honesty, originality and fair dealing on the part of authors, and fairness, objectivity and confidentiality on the part of editors and reviewers are among the critical values that enable us to achieve our aim.
We follow standards and conventions developed in “Responsible research publication: international standards for editors” and “Responsible research publication: international standards for authors,” from Promoting Research Integrity in a Global Environment (World Scientific Publishing Company, 2012).
