Publication Ethics

The Academy is mindful of the importance of ethics in social science research because social scientists procure the materials for their publications through a variety of sources, - primary and secondary. The sources include but not limited to the following: confidential records, documents etc; verbal interviews with respondents etc. It envisages that sacred ethical requirements in the procurement of data would not have been breached by authors in the course of researching groups, individuals, and organizations. It will therefore be helpful if space is created in the narratives on how ethics are addressed in paper/reports that are submitted for publication.
