Copyright Policy

Articles published in Journal of Global Trade, Ethics and Law are subject to the Creative Commons Attribution Licence (CC-BY), giving the author the full right to copy, distribute, display and adapt the work for commercial purposes, as long as they properly cite the source (Further guidance is provided below).

Publication Ethics

At the time of submission, until the end of the revision period of their manuscript, authors have a duty to ensure that their manuscript is not under consideration or being published in any other journal. Authors must ensure that no part of the manuscript reporting the original work is considered for publication in whole or in part elsewhere. Upon acceptance by the corresponding author, the above conditions shall be deemed to have been read and approved by the other authors of the manuscript.​

An individual who has made important intellectual contributions to a scientific investigation, such as one who significantly contributes to the conception, design, execution, analysis, and interpretation of data, and who takes part in the writing, editing, or proofreading of the manuscript for intellectual content before giving final approval for publication.

Each author needs to be identified as the corresponding author if there are numerous authors on an article. A corresponding author, who may or may not be the principle investigator or project leader, takes full responsibility for the work and significantly advances the field of study.


Every co-author of a publication is responsible for obtaining the appropriate author's consent to paternity, for participating in the research effort, for assuming responsibility for the appropriate portions of the content, and for being accountable for the content of all reasonable portions of the manuscript, including the integrity of any relevant research. The authors may acknowledge others who have helped with the research project, such as office staff, editorial assistants, medical writers, or other people in their recognition. Ospite (symbolic), regalo (someone who has not contributed to the research effort), and fantasy authors are all inconsistent with the definition of paternity, are unreachable, and constitute a violation of this policy.

When decisions regarding research are impacted by things like monetary gain or interpersonal ties, there is a conflict of interest. All writers are required to disclose any financial, personal, or other connections that might have an impact on or be seen as having an impact on their work.

To uphold the integrity of the scientific record, JGTEL is dedicated to releasing unique and previously unpublished material. The corresponding author must attest that the text has been read and approved by all other authors. The Journal of Global Trade, Ethics and Law does a plagiarism check on each manuscript that is submitted with Turnitin software. If there are any signs of plagiarism in an article, JGTEL will look into the situation and, depending on the level of plagiarism, take appropriate action.

When a writer publishes the same intellectual work multiple times, this is referred to as redundant publication. The Committee on Publication Ethics' standards will be followed in circumstances where it is suspected that duplicate manuscript submissions have been made (COPE).

Reference manipulation is the practice of publishing an article primarily for the purpose of boosting an author's citation count. We highly warn authors not to engage in similar actions as this is against our Ethics Guidelines.

Manuscript Preparation


There are no word limits in the presentation of the Article.


Use Times New Roman.



This should include the writers' names and addresses as well as the contribution's title. The author's complete postal address, email address, phone number, and fax number should be provided since these will be used to receive correspondence and check proofs.

The running masthead, often known as the short title, is a condensed version of your manuscript's title. This not only aids in the identification of your article during the judging process, but it also acts as the title of the manuscript on the journal site, giving readers of the journal quick access to pertinent information.

A concise yet detailed Abstract is required for every paper. It should not be longer than 300 words and should explain the primary work's objectives, underlying assumptions, and conclusions. Before reading the body of the article, the reader should be able to swiftly and clearly understand the justification for the work, the experiments carried out, and the outcomes of those experiments from the abstract. Authorities are not given if they occur in the title; both common and scientific names must be used. References to works of literature and formulae or symbols from mathematics shouldn't be used.

To make it easier for search engines to index the material, keywords (no more than 8) should be placed below the Abstract.

The study's objectives should be clearly stated in the introduction, together with enough background information to explain why the study was conducted and which hypotheses were investigated.

This paragraph should be brief but provide enough information on the tools and materials used as well as the steps taken so that the job can be reproduced by others.

The results must be presented in text, tables, and figures in a logical order. It is best to avoid repeatedly presenting the same data in tables and figures. Results shouldn't include content suitable for discussion. This part should include all sample tables, graphs, statistical analyses, and calculations.

Recognizing the source of financial assistance is required. In the cover letter enclosed with the paper, authors are required to state any financial support or relationships that might give rise to a conflict of interest. Technical support may also be acknowledged.

The funders of this publication should be acknowledged, and the authors should include any pertinent financial details.

A disclaimer describing each author's involvement must be included in the paper, according to the rules for authors. The level of detail varies; certain professions create manuscripts that include distinct efforts that may be explained in detail, while other disciplines work as a team at all times.

Any reference must contain complete and correct information, which is the author's obligation. Only references that have been published or are "in press" should be listed as references.

JGTEL adopts the Chicago in-text citation style as its reference system. For this reason, each Article submitted must use the Chicago system.

For more information, please consult the guidelines.

Data shouldn't be repeated in figures and tables should be self-contained. Tables must have sequential numbers. Each table should be displayed on a separate page and have a thorough yet succinct legend above it. Tables must be double-spaced, and columns cannot be divided by vertical lines. Short column titles with measurement units in parenthesis are preferred. The footnotes must include a definition for every acronym. For footnotes, use superscript letters rather than numbers, and use them sparingly. P-values require the use of the symbols *, **, and ***.

There shouldn't be more illustrations than are essential. Figures are the general term for any illustrations (including line drawings and pictures). The text must cite the figures in sequential order. Figures need to be resized to fill the column or the entire text width. Figures must be presented as precise computer-generated black-and-white or color schematics. The images must be clear, and a scale bar must be used to show magnifications. High resolution (at least 300 dpi) electronic files must be submitted for all graphics. Low-resolution digital photographs cannot be utilized and will not be accepted.

Free Format Submission

The journal offers its authors the free formatting of the text, i.e. the possibility of sending the manuscript following its own line which is nonetheless coherent and understandable.

Authors should therefore remember that:

The manuscript and references in style or format may be free, provided they are coherent and understandable.

The author must be sure to include all sections and guidelines requests offered for the manuscript.

These may include Abstracts, Keywords, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Conclusions and Artwork/Tables with captions. Information on Conflict of Interest and other Ethics Disclosures appropriate to the type of manuscript should also be included.

Manuscript Submission

A Creative Commons Attribution license applies to all papers and content published by Journal of Global Trade, Ethics and Law, unless otherwise stated (also known as the CC-BY license). This means you are allowed to use, reproduce, and distribute the articles and their material for both commercial and non-commercial reasons (unless otherwise noted), as long as you give credit to the original author in accordance with the CC-BY license.

When they are submitted to Journal of Global Trade, Ethics and Law, all manuscripts go through a thorough peer review procedure. Click here for more information about our editorial process.

Post Publication


If requested by the Editor-in-Chief, the author will be asked to submit the updated paper again using a journal template after the final review is finished. The final edited text will be emailed to you as a PDF file, and you have three days from the time you receive it to send it back. Authors may be penalised for excessive changes if they make changes to text and figures that are unsatisfactory for testing (other than necessary error correction).

Reuse of JGTEL Article Content

Akademia Profile applies the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY) license, that allow free and unrestricted use, to articles and other works we publish. If you submit your paper for publication by JGTEL, you agree to have the CC BY license applied to your work. If your institution or funder requires your work or materials to be published under a different license or dedicated to the public domain - for example Creative Commons 1.0 Universal (CC0) or Open Governmental License - this is permitted for those licenses where the terms are equivalent to or more permissive than CC BY. Akademia Profile requires that you as the author agree that anyone can reuse your article content in whole or part for any purpose, for free, even for commercial purposes. These permitted uses include but are not limited to self-archiving by authors of submitted, accepted and published versions of their papers in institutional repositories. Anyone may copy, redistribute, reuse, or modify the content as long as the author and original source are properly cited. This facilitates freedom in reuse and also ensures that JGTEL content can be mined without barriers for the needs of research.

Content Owned by Someone Else

If your manuscript contains content such as photos, images, clipart, tables, audio files, videos, proprietary protocols, code, etc., that you or your co-authors do not own or did not create, we will require you to provide us with proof that either:

Please note that purchasing copyright use is unlikely to meet this requirement, as many journals and publishers restrict the terms of purchased copyright use in ways that do not accommodate open access publication. In addition, we cannot accept Creative Commons licensed materials with additional non-commercial (CC BY-NC), share-alike (CC BY-SA), or non-derivative (CC BY-ND) clauses.
