FOCUS WTO is committed to upholding the integrity of the academic record. Our editors and editorial team endeavor to ensure the content we publish is ethically sound. We encourage authors to refer to the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) International Standards for Authors.
A few key points:
- Any manuscript you submit to this journal should be original. That means it should not have been published before in its current, or similar, form. Please note, the journal editor may use Turnitin to check on the originality of submissions received.
- Your work should not have been submitted elsewhere and should not be under consideration by any other publication.
- If you have a conflict of interest, you must declare it upon submission; this allows the editor to decide how they would like to proceed.
