The mission of International Review of Business and Applied Sciences (IRBAS) is to provide a publishing outlet for interdisciplinary articles addressing problems and opportunities in business, social, behavioral and applied sciences. IRBAS focuses on conceptual ideas, constructs, propositions, models, and theories, including moral and ethical implications

Scope and Coverage

The International Review of Business & Applied Sciences (IRBAS) is a double-blind peer review journal of Business and Applied Sciences Academy of North America (BAASANA). It publishes conceptual papers, quantitative and qualitative research, case studies, and pedagogical research involving global or country-specific business, social, behavioral, and applied sciences. In support of IRBAS’s mission, it publishes articles with less discipline-specific jargon. Statistical analysis, when used, should be explained in plain language for interdisciplinary global readers. Commentaries on articles and reports published in the Journal are welcomed and encouraged. Authors will have the opportunity to respond to commentary on their work and publish those responses. Special Issues devoted to critical global topics, including disruptive innovations and case studies on UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), will be routinely published.

The journal is an invaluable support to academics and researchers, environmental activists, SDG participants, teachers using innovative pedagogical styles, and all those charged with setting policies and strategies for business and social, global, and non-profit organizations.

Ethical Guidelines for Authors

The editorial board of International Review of Business & Applied Sciences (IRBAS) Journal adheres to the principles outlined by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). Authors who are concerned about the editorial process may refer to COPE. The authors must declare all potential competing interests involving people or organizations that might reasonably be perceived as relevant. Manuscripts might be rejected by the editor-in-chief if the work was not carried out within an ethical framework.



Plagiarism in any form constitutes a severe violation of the most basic principles of scholarship and cannot be tolerated. Examples of plagiarism include:

  • Word-for-word or text copied verbatim from an original work without appropriately acknowledging the author.

  • Using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to complete academic work is considered a form of plagiarism because it is not the author’s own work.

  • The use of a particularly unique term or concept without acknowledging the author or source. The paraphrasing or abbreviated restatement of someone else's ideas without acknowledging the author or source.

  • False citation: material should not be attributed to a source from which it has not been obtained.

  • False data: data that has been fabricated or altered in a laboratory or experiment; although not literally plagiarism, this is a form of academic fraud.

  • Unacknowledged multiple submissions of a paper for several purposes without prior approval from the parties involved.

  • Unacknowledged multiple authors or collaboration: the contributions of each author or collaborators should be made clear.

  • Self-plagiarism/double submission: the submission of the same or a very similar paper to two or more publications simultaneously.
