The use of telecom products over the years has gone up tremendously among consumers. This has led to intense competition among the telecom operators for customers. TV and Radio have been one of the competitive tools employed by these telecom operators to attract, inform and persuade customers. Using tertiary students in the Cape Coast Metropolis as the data source, this study primarily examined the influence of television and radio advertisement used by telecom operators as far as purchasing decisions are concerned.The study employed the correlational study design. Convenience sampling was used to select 754 tertiary students from a total population of 17218. The main research instrument used to collect data for the study was the questionnaire. Descriptive and inferential statistics such as the mean, standard deviation, standard regression and hierarchical regression were used to analyse the data. The findings of the study showed television advert and not radio advert influenced the decisions of tertiary students to purchase telecom products. It was also revealed that price and service quality delivery moderates the relationship between electronic advertising and consumer purchasing decisions. It is recommended that the television should be the main medium when advertising for their product to tertiary students in the country.

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.
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.
8.The editor should respond promptly and take reasonable measures when an ethical complaint occurs concerning a submitted manuscript or a published paper, and the editor should immediately contact and consult with the author. In this case, a written formal retraction or correction may also be required.
