The level of influence the media asserts on its audience perception of contemporary issues within the society has been a focal point in media studies. Over the past decade, the people and government of Nigeria as well as neighbouring African countries have struggled with brutal insurgencies by the Boko Haram sect which has constantly been on the international media. Adopting the content analysis research design, this study sought to determine the influence of the webcast framing of the Nigerian government’s response to these insurgencies on the international audience. A sample size of 157 videos, and 80 audience comments were sampled from the YouTube channels of Aljazeera, Channels TV, and CNN using the systematic, and purposive sampling techniques, while the coding sheet and manual were used to gather data. Data collected were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The findings reveal that majority (69%) of the international audiences were more critical of government’s response to Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East. The study concludes that television webcast framing of government’s response to Boko Haram insurgency in 2012 - 2014 led to a critical perception of the Nigerian government by the international audience.

It is, therefore, essential that all publishers, editors, authors, and reviewers, in the process of publishing the journals, conduct themselves in accordance with the highest level of professional ethics and standards. The publisher is dedicated to supporting the vast efforts of the editors, the academic contributions of authors, and the respected volunteer work undertaken by reviewers. The publisher is also responsible for ensuring that the publication system works smoothly, and that ethical guidelines are applied to assist the editor, author, and reviewer in performing their ethical duties.
The editor has the following responsibilities:
1.The editor should acknowledge receipt of submitted manuscripts within two working days of receipt and ensure an efficient, fair, and timely review process.
2.The editor should ensure that submitted manuscripts are processed in a confidential manner, and that no content of the manuscripts will be disclosed to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, and the publisher, as appropriate.
3.The editor should recuse himself or herself from processing manuscripts if he or she has any conflict of interest with any of the authors or institutions related to the manuscripts.
4.The editor should not disclose the names and other details of the reviewers to a third party without the permission of the reviewers.
5.The editor has the right to make the final decision on whether to accept or reject a manuscript with reference to the significance, originality, and clarity of the manuscript and its relevance to the journal.
6.The editor should by no means make any effort to oblige the authors to cite his or her journal either as an implied or explicit condition of accepting their manuscripts for publication.
7.The editor should not use for his or her own research any part of any data or work reported in submitted and as yet unpublished articles.

In this case, a written formal retraction or correction may also be required.
