Publishing Ethics

Researchers must conduct their research from research proposals to publications in accordance with best practices and the ethical codes of the relevant professional bodies and / or national and international regulatory bodies. In rare cases, it is possible that ethical problems or errors can be found in your journal when the research is submitted for publication.


This journal is committed to upholding the integrity of scientific records. As a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), the journal will follow COPE guidelines on how to deal with potential violations.

Authors must refrain from misinterpreting the results of research that can damage trust in journals, professionalism in scientific writing, and ultimately all scientific endeavors. Maintaining the integrity of research and its presentation is assisted by following the rules of good scientific practice, which include *:

1. Manuscripts should not be submitted to more than one journal for simultaneous consideration.
 A single study should not be divided into sections to increase the number of submissions and submit it to various journals or to one journal from time to time (eg alami Salami-slicing / publishing ’).
2. Concurrent or secondary publications can sometimes be justified, provided certain requirements are met. Examples include: translations or texts intended for different groups of readers.
3. Results must be presented clearly, honestly, and without fabrication, falsification, or inappropriate data manipulation (including image-based manipulation). Authors must adhere to specific disciplinary rules for obtaining, selecting, and processing data.
4. No data, texts, or theories by other people are presented as if they belonged to the author himself ('plagiarism'). Appropriate acknowledgments to other works must be given (this includes material that is closely copied (near word for word), summarized and / or paraphrased), quotation marks (to show words taken from other sources) used to copy material verbatim, and permission is guaranteed for copyrighted material.

Important note: journals can use software to filter plagiarism.

1. Authors must ensure they have permission to use the software, questionnaire / survey (web) and scale in their studies (if appropriate).
2. Authors must avoid untrue statements about an entity (which can be an individual or company) or a description of their behavior or actions that could potentially be seen as personal attacks or accusations about that person.
3. Research that might be misused to pose a threat to public health or national security must be clearly identified in the text (eg dual use of research). Examples include the creation of dangerous consequences from biological agents or poisons, impaired vaccine immunity, unusual hazards in the use of chemicals, research / technology weapons (among others).
4. Authors are strongly advised to ensure the author group, Corresponding Author, and author order are all correct at the time of submission. Adding and / or removing authors during the revision stage is generally not permitted, but in some cases it can be justified. The reasons for authorship changes must be explained in detail. Please note that authorship changes cannot be made after receiving a text. [See also Essay Principles.]

* All of the above are guidelines and authors need to ensure to respect the rights of third parties such as copyright and / or moral rights.

Upon request, the author must be prepared to send relevant documentation or data to verify the validity of the results presented. This can be in the form of raw data, samples, notes, etc. Sensitive information in the form of confidential or proprietary data is not included.

If there is a suspicion of misconduct or suspected fraud, the Journal and / or Publisher will conduct an investigation following the COPE guidelines. If, after investigation, there is a valid concern, the author concerned will be contacted under the email address provided and given the opportunity to resolve the issue. Depending on the situation, this may result in the application of the following steps from the Journal and / Publisher, including, but not limited to:

    If the manuscript is still under consideration, it might be rejected and returned to the author.
    If the article has been published online, depending on the nature and severity of the violation:
        erratum / correction can be placed with the article
        expressions of concern can be placed with the article
        or in severe cases article repeal can occur.
