Gender Based Violence (GBV) has been framed and understood exclusively as a woman’s issue. Much of the research on GBV portrays men as perpetrators and women as victims of this violence. While it is true that most gender based violence occur against women, it is not true that women are the only victims and that men are the only perpetrators. However, reasons why and how GBV against men is exhibited are unknown in Zambia. It is the bias in research that has led to the framing of gender based violence as solely perpetrated by men against women portraying the latter as only victims. It is on these grounds that this study aims at exploring the causes and types of gender based violence (GBV) against men from the lenses of the perpetrators (women) and the victims (men) in one of Zambia’s compounds in Choma town. The study drew its sample from fifty-nine (59) wives and twenty-one (21) husbands, making a total sample of eighty (80) respondents. Data was analyzed qualitatively using themes and patterns which were identified from the focus group discussions and in-depth interviews to generate descriptions of the phenomenon under study. The study revealed that women’s violence towards men was caused by: poor financial support, infidelity, beer drinking, non-involvement in household chores, suspicions and jealousy, husband’s late coming and dependence of husbands on their wives (lacking source of income).

For a peer-reviewed journal, the publication of articles plays an essential role in the development of a coherent network of knowledge. 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.

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.
