Handling of unethical publishing behavior

The Research Ethics Committee in Korean Accounting Association should deliberate on the ethical concerns related to members of Korean Accounting Association and any research misconduct violating the guidelines and determine the necessary follow-up actions based on the results of the deliberation. The Research Ethics Committee should provide an independent review of the ethical concerns or misconduct detected by the Editorial Board/Reviewing Committee or by any individuals or other organizations.

A decision to investigate any research misconduct shall be made in accordance with Paragraph, where it states that the Editorial Board or the Reviewing Committee requests the Research Ethics Committee for an investigation into the possible misconduct. In cases of alleged or proven scientific misconduct, fraudulent publication or plagiarism, the publisher, in close collaboration with the editors, will take all appropriate measures to clarify the situation and to amend the article in question. This includes prompt publication of an erratum, clarification or, in the most severe case, retraction of the affected work. The publisher, together with the editors, shall take reasonable steps to identify and prevent the publication of papers where research misconduct has occurred, and under no circumstances encourage such misconduct or knowingly allow such misconduct to take place.
