Publication Ethics


Reporting standards

Originality and plagiarism

Authors must ensure that they have written completely original work, and if the author has used someone else's work and / or words then cite it in an appropriate manner. So that it is not included in the plagiarism category. Plagiarism takes many forms, from the form of 'passing on' another paper as the author's own article, copying or paraphrasing substantial portions of another paper (without attribution), to claiming the results of research conducted by others. Plagiarism in all its forms is unethical and unacceptable publishing behavior.

Multiple, redundant or concurrent publication

In general, an author should not publish a manuscript describing the same research in more than one journal or major publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal at the same time is unethical and unacceptable publishing behavior. In general, an author may not submit considerations in other journals that have been previously published.

The publication of several types of articles (eg guidelines, translations) in more than one journal is sometimes justified, provided certain requirements are met. Authors and journal editors must agree to a second publication, which must reflect the same data and interpretation of the primary document. Primary references should be cited in secondary publications.

Source recognition

Proper recognition of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported research results. Information obtained privately, such as in conversations, correspondence, or discussions with third parties, may not be used or reported without the explicit written permission of the source. Information obtained in confidential services, such as reviewed manuscripts or grant applications, may not be used without the explicit written permission of the authors of the work involved in these services.

Co-writing of the script

Co-authoring should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, implementation or interpretation of the reported research. Everyone who has made a significant contribution must be listed as a co-author (so this means that the manuscript has at least an author and a member of the authors). There are other people who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be recognized or registered as contributors.

The lead author must ensure that all appropriate author members and no inappropriate author members are included on the article, and that all author members have viewed and approved the final version of this paper and have agreed to its submission for publication. If the work involves chemicals, procedures or equipment that have unusual hazards inherent in their use, the authors must clearly identify these in the text.

Disclosure and conflicts of interest

All authors must disclose in their text any financial or other substantive conflicts that may be construed to affect the results or their interpretation of the text. All sources of financial support for the project must be disclosed. Examples of potential conflicts of interest that should be disclosed include employment, consulting, share ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony, patent applications / registrations, and grants or other funding. Potential conflicts of interest should be disclosed at the earliest stage possible.

Fundamental errors in published works

When an author finds significant errors or inaccuracies in his 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 the article. If an editor or publisher learns from a third party that a published work contains significant errors, it is the author's obligation to immediately remove or correct the article or provide evidence to the editor about the correctness of the article.


Publication Decision

The editor is responsible for deciding which articles to submit to the journal should be published. The validation of the work in question and its importance to researchers and readers should always encourage such decisions. Editors may be guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and limited by legal requirements such as those currently in place with regard to defamation, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The editor may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.

Ensuring Fair Treatment

An editor should evaluate a manuscript for their intellectual content without paying attention


Check Plagiarism

Scheme in plagiarism check:

1. After the author has finished writing it, the author must check plagiarism with the plagiarism check application before submitting it to the reviewer. The maximum percentage is below 30% for total plagiarism detected, and for sub points (per paragraph) a maximum of 2%. Plagiarism checking is recommended using the TURNITIN application
2. After the author checks the plagiarism, the writer sends the manuscript to the reviewer.
3. After sending, the reviewer corrects the manuscript that has been received. Be it writing or content. In addition, the reviewer re-checks the plagiarism with the above conditions.
4. If the problem of writing and content and plagiarism feels insufficient and unfit for publication, the manuscript will be returned to the author. And vice versa, if you feel, both the writing and the content are worthy of publication and the palgiat has complied with the provisions, then the manuscript will go straight to the next stage to be published.
