Publication Ethics

The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is a very crucial task in disseminating knowledge and contributes for the scientific development. As a peer-reviewed journal, the rigor of scientific publication is expected to be observed in the course of evaluating papers that are submitted. Therefore, ethical behavior is expected for all parties involved during the publishing process: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer and the publisher.

Plagiarism and originality

Authors or contributors are required to properly cite and quote sources of literature that they used in their research articles. Plagiarism may be manifested in variety of ways such as using another’s paper as the author’s own paper, intentional or unintentional copying or paraphrasing parts of another’s paper without citation, claiming results from research conducted by others.

Each case identified is subject to additional analysis to confirm the existence of the fact of proper attribution by the authors of the manuscript. If the fact of lack of proper attribution (plagiarism) is confirmed, the manuscript is rejected without the right to reconsider. If self-plagiarism is found, the manuscript is rejected and a notification is sent to the author that his/her manuscript is not unique enough. all articles that have more than 20% plagiarism (by turnitin) will be immediately rejected.

If plagiarism is found after the publication of the article, the article is marked in all indexing resources with the label "PLAGIARISM" or "DUPLICATE", without deleting it from the archive of the journal, where the same label is used.
In this case, the editorial board of the journal reserves the right to impose penalties in accordance with the License Agreement between the Licensor (authors) and the Licensee (Publisher) within the framework of the damage caused to the Licensee, both material and moral.
