Ethical Guidelines for Journal Publication
The publication of peer-reviewed articles in IJI Publication is an important element in the development of a coherent and respected knowledge network. This is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree on standards of ethical behavior expected of all parties involved in publishing: authors, journal editors, peer reviewers, publishers, and the public.
The Indonesian Madani Intellectuals Association's Scientific Publication Unit as the publisher of IJI Publication takes guardianship duties at all stages of publishing seriously and we are responsible. We are committed to ensuring that advertising, reprint, or other commercial revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions.
IJI Publication editors are responsible for deciding which articles to submit to journals should be published. The validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers should always drive such decisions. Editors may be guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and limited by the legal requirements that will apply regarding defamation, copyright infringement, and plagiarism. Editors may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.
Editors at all times evaluate the manuscript for intellectual content regardless of the author's race, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnic origin, nationality, or political philosophy.
Editors and editorial staff may not disclose any information about the submitted manuscript to anyone other than the appropriate authors, reviewers, other editorial advisers and publishers, as appropriate.
Disclosure and conflicts of interest
Unpublished material disclosed in the submitted manuscript may not be used in the editor's own research without the written consent of the author.
Duties of a reviewer
Contribution to Editorial Decisions
Peer reviews assist editors in making editorial decisions and through editorial communication with authors can also assist authors in improving papers.
Any selected reviewer who feels ineligible to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that a speedy review is not possible should notify the editor and excuse himself from the review process.
Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. They may not be shown or discussed with others except as permitted by the editor.
Standard of Objectivity
Reviews must be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Reviewers must express their views clearly with supporting arguments.
Reviewers should identify relevant published works that have not been cited by the authors. Any statement that the observation, derivation, or argument has been previously reported must be accompanied by a relevant citation. The reviewer should also call the editor's attention about any substantial similarities or overlaps between the manuscript under consideration and other published papers with personal knowledge.
Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest
Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal gain. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have a conflict of interest arising from competition, collaboration, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions the paper is linked to.
The author of the original research report must present an accurate report of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance. The underlying data must be represented accurately in the paper. A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to allow others to replicate the work. False or intentionally inaccurate statements are unethical and unacceptable behavior.
Originality and Plagiarism
Authors should ensure that they have written completely original work, and if authors have used the work and / or words of others that this has been appropriately quoted or cited.
Multiple, Redundant, or Concurrent Publication
An author may not generally publish manuscripts describing the same research in more than one journal or major publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal simultaneously is unethical and unacceptable publishing behavior.
True recognition of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that were influential in determining the nature of the work being reported.
Authorities should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, implementation or interpretation of the reported research. All those who have made significant contributions must be listed as co-authors. Where other people have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they must be recognized or registered as contributors. Suitable authors must ensure that all appropriate co-authors and no inappropriate co-authors are included on paper, and that all co-authors have viewed and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.
Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest
All authors must disclose in their manuscripts any financial or other substantive conflicts of interest that may be construed to influence their results or interpretation of the text. All sources of financial support for the project must be disclosed.
Fundamental errors in published work
When an author discovers significant errors or inaccuracies in his self-published work, it is the author's obligation to immediately notify the journal editor or publisher and work with the editor to retract or correct them.
